Description
 
In late 2013 we first met "Super Banana" when she showed up in Florida after being rescued from a dealership lot in Houston. With less than 6000 original miles, the 2.7L base Boxster was loaded on options and made the perfect donor vehicle for BGB's first 981 3.8L Boxster conversion. The owner wanted a "sleeper" so at first, the only revisions made to the car were to install the 3.8L 991 engine and larger 991 6-piston calipers and rotors. The front and rear brake calipers were sent out for Speed Yellow powdercoat to match the exterior paint and that was it. Super B was boxed up and shipped to Connecticut and was on track at New Hampshire International Raceway the next day. Upon receipt of the car, the owner was ecstatic but when Winter 2014 arrived, "Super B" was sent back from Connecticut to Florida for more upgrades. Round 2 yielded Cargraphic stainless steel "Sport" manifolds and mufflers, an IPD competition plenum, upgraded BMC air filters, stainless steel braided brake lines and the X37 factory Sport Suspension. We peformed an oil and gearbox fluid change, bled the brakes for the next Driver's Education event and gave her some 3.8L recognition via a black stripe at the bottom. While she is still somewhat of a sleeper, those that know, know better!
