      For 165,000 miles they look pretty good to me. No major worries IMHO. Micro polish the crank, check dimensions and you should be good to go.

      A little bit more of bearing " scratching " from...

      That's why I like a caliper such as 4 or 6 Piston WilWood Superlites. Pad choice is always plentiful and Circle Track suppliers always have...

      $350 for a set of Boxster front Pagid RS4-4's seems a bit high. Without too much searching I found them under $250 from several USA suppliers.

      PFC and Carbotech would be a good choice as well.

      I can't remember Max. You running SP or Street Mod? Was just browsing the 2015 SCCA Solo Rules last night, and apparently SP rules require that the vehicle has an operating hand brake ( or foot...

      Interesting... I've haven't had to use that technique in years, all of our sites are dead flat. Our Hillclimbs of course have a start line wheel block, so no handbrake needed. But I do notice the...

      Handbrake and all associated cables etc can go. Unless you plan on doing Rallycross as well!!

      I would recommend plumbing back into the Intake manifold. The exhaust scavengers tend to over scavenge.

      That makes sense. High levels of detergents can be detrimental to ZDDP life span. Might explain the lack of Calcium reading.

      If this is a DD, you may want to re-consider your venting system. Quite a few guys here are switching back to complete sealed PCV systems after doing oil analysis and seeing how much acid and carbon...

      " Fully Vented " PCV system? Can you take a picture of your setup or be a bit more specific? PCV systems must be a closed system.

      A boost leak check will always build up pressure in the crankcase. Doesn't necessarily mean PCV valve is bad. And there are different ways that a boost leak detector can be hooked up. PRV valve (...

      Short answer = Yes. But it is more likely that you have a split in a PCV hose or vacuum hose than a bad PCV valve per say. Unless of course the PCV Valve is gunked up. Chcek out the 1.8T engine FAQ....
