The story of 981_003, A.K.A. "ChuckBox" is a sad one. In February 2014 the car's owner "Chuck" arrived at BGB with his 2013 Boxster S in search of a 3.8L conversion and more power and torque. Chuck's acquisition was one that he had planned for over much of his life and realizing that life only comes once, he opted for the 430hp "Power Kit" cylinder heads to be added to his exsiting 3.8L 991 conversion. He had just entered the car in a race on the ice in Colorado and he was ready to start trying his hand at Driver's Education events. "ChuckBox" was the 1st Power Kit conversion we completed for the 981 and after the conversion, Fabspeed mufflers were added with Fabspeed manifolds that featured 200 cell catalytic converters. To further improve handling and braking we purchased and installed an X73 factory Sport Suspension and upgraded his front brakes to those of a 991 C2S, installing 6-piston calipers and 340mm front discs. Sadly enough, Chuck was only able to enjoy his 3.8L Boxster for a year before he passed away in his sleep this past winter. Godspeed Chuck...we have no doubt that you are up there helping with the sale of BGB 3.8L Caymans and Boxsters and we really just wish you were still here to enjoy your car!
