I've reviewed Renegade's page a number of times trying to make sense of some of the figures. It's an investment for sure. Does the basic kit include trans?

On the flip side, I've heard nothing but good things about their kits. I'm looking into their cooling package also. It's said to be second to none by many people that have them.

I have an LS1 and Boxster S. Go with Stuttgart Muscle for Adapters and Spec 2 clutch. I personally feel it is better quality than Kennedy or Renegade and for less money. Google the company.


Thanks for the info Gearup. I actually ran across this company awhile back and forgot about them.

What was an indicator that the parts were better quality?

You can buy the parts from Kennedy.

Renegade just resells them.

LS to Boxster adapter & flywheel $1850

Clutch package $850

Has anyone sourced the mounts from a company other than Renegade?

Fabricate your own might be the only other option other than Renegade.

It seems the total price is only going to vary about a grand or so just purchasing all the parts. (bought conversion specific parts)

Renegade has the mounts made for them.

Their mount is very well made.

Others have made there own mounts.

Check with Bigkat83.

He helped me with my questions when I started my conversion.

Good to know. Thanks David.

What about axles? Are there a variety of options out there?

Axles will depend on what you do at the hub. If you stay with 914 stub axles, you can get axles with Boxster inner CVs/914 outer. Renegade sells them, as do others, I assume.

With the LS, I wanted as strong a set up as possible so I went with late Carrera hubs and 911 e-brake set up. I run standard late Carrera axles, as pictured. To work with the Boxster S trans, you need a 1/2" spacer between the inner CV and output shaft (make one or you can pruchase from Renegade), and accordingly longer inner CV bolts. There is also a spacer that goes over the splined end of the axle (available from Patrick Motorsports).

NOTE: since the "stub axle" no longer lives with the trailing arm (when the axle isn't in the car), you aren't supposed to put weight on the trailing arm bearings without the axles installed. (not necessarily torqued, but they should be in there to roll the car around, etc.)
This makes it a bit of a pain to work on things when the trans is out, since you have to leave the axles installed and supported.

@The Double S - You should make the trip up for the 2020 WCR in Petaluma on the weekend of November 5. I live in Petaluma and hope to have my car at the event. But even if I don't make that, you'd have a chance to come to my place and check out my set up.

With my setup I am using the early 911 cv's & the 5 bolt stubs.

To mount to the Boxster flanges I drilled out holes for the 2 roll pins in the cv to allow the use of 6 bolts at the flange.

Got my axles from Pacific Customs 22" IIRC.

Check out Tygaboy's work, you will be impressed.

Thanks Tygaboy. If I can get up there I definitely will. Sounds like you have it dialed in. I appreciate it.

As I have been researching this over the past year it seems like the G86 transaxles have been the go to for most recent repowers.

Has anyone dabbled with Subaru options? Or any other creative thoughts with cost and functionality in mind?

Unless you make your own parts, all of the transmission options are going to be close.
