Looks great!

I bet rallycross is a LOT of fun, and the boxster pretty well suited to it!

What are the vents in the bonnet for? relocated radiators?

Regs say it needs to have the same amount of cylinders as the original.

Plus the Audi engines are 300hp out of the box, and bolt straight up to the Porsche transaxle.

The last pic answers my initial question. The original pic didn't look like a Porsche engine. That's a great project, I bet you can't wait to get it on track?. Keep us posted. Thumb

Having done a few road rallies as navigator and also been a pssenger in a Boxster, I can honestly say a Boxster would be quite awful. As a nav you want good visibility to the front and sides and space for a few things like torch, map board etc. It might sound like a few small items but you dont want them rolling around hte footwell and from memory, the boxster seating position is fairly low and strtetched out which would make trying to read signs at night, in the dark, using only a torch, on narrow country lanes pretty much impossible. if you then have to get your Don Barrow Romer out to do some plotting on the fly....

Power is irrelevant really, if its a proper 12 car you will be subject to timing controls. You would be better looking for a 106 GTI or a Clio 172/182. Something fast and nippy, small, upright position, a little more ground clearance and a little more roomy for maps etc...

Identical bellhousing bolt pattern?

Hybrid clutch?

Spigot bearing size the same?

Input spline identical?

Not being funny, just interested how mix and match this actually is.

Why've you put a hardtop on? I'd just take the existing one off completely and go alfresco for what you're using it for Dont know Question
