More info on the system developed for the 986 Boxster can be found in an article here ...
Shown in the photos are the R35 GT-R and 986 Boxster versions of this bundle. The particular 986 shown above uses a standard length boss instead of the short boss as the driver is very tall and the standard length boss suits his driving position.

What's In The Bundle ?
This product bundle consists of the following products ...
1 x Works Bell Paddle Shifter
The Works Bell Paddle Shifter mechanism consists of the heart of the Works Bell Paddle Shifter Kits as seen on vehicles like the 350Z, RX-8, and other high end semi-sequential vehicles.
The Works Bell Paddle Shifter places specially designed ergonomic carbon fibre paddles behind your steering wheel. You can shift gears with a 7mm stroke of the precision engineered paddles.
The carefully made, beautifully detailed Paddle Shifter is composed of machined aluminium alloy and finished with a very hard wearing Alumite treatment.
The carbon fibre paddles are adjustable to match the size of your hand or steering wheel by up to 15 mm on each side.
The adjustment range allows for distances between the outer edges of the paddles of 270mm to 304mm.
The microswitch wiring is beautifully concealed within the shift mechanism for a perfect finish.Works Bell Rapfix II Quick Release - black version
1 x Works Bell Rapfix II Quick Release (your choice of colour).
The Works Bell Rapfix II is the original ball lock quick release, invented and patented by Works Bell, made entirely in Japan, and which spawned the entire craze of quick release systems in tuner cars.
The Rapfix II is used by all the big Japanese tuners, including iconic Japanese tuner JUN who use a Rapfix II on their mindblowing Mitsubishi Evo X project car.
The Rapfix II can also be seen on a huge number of D1 and Formula D cars in Japan, including the Team Orange cars and Toshiki Yoshioka - the ToshiKing !
Quite simply, the Works Bell Rapfix II is without doubt the finest detachable steering wheel quick release system in the world.
1 x Works Bell Short Steering Wheel Boss Kit Hub For Porsche 997
Works Bell has developed an exclusive short hub system that is designed for the specific use with the Works Bell Rapfix II Quick Release, Works Bell Rapfix GTC Quick Release and Works Bell Rapfix GTC Hybrid quick release.
This short hub system is designed to compensate for the additional length of the Works Bell Steering Quick Release and prevents setting the steering wheel too close to the driver.
With the short hub system, the user is able to offset the position of the steering wheel away from the driver for optimum driver position.
The total length of the short boss is approx 66mm. Please note that this boss can only be used on cars that use the Porsche factory steering column - Porsche factory part number 997 347 007 05.
The Works Bell "U-turn harness" allows the driver to bypass the airbag signal in order to prevent the in-dash airbag warning light flashing or staying on once an aftermarket wheel is installed.

Steering Wheel Compatability
The Works Bell Paddle Shifter is designed to be used with aftermarket steering wheels.
It cannot be used with the factory Porsche airbag steering wheel.
At the steering wheel end, the Rapfix II Quick Release ships pre-machined with bolt holes in both standard 6 bolt Momo bolt pattern steering (PCD 70mm), and 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern (PCD 74mm).
Of course this makes it compatible with all Works Bell steering wheels, including the Works Bell Original Steering Wheel, the Works Bell Team Orange Steering Wheel, and the Works Bell Yoshioka Steering Wheel.
If you require an aftermarket steering wheel, we can supply a wide range of aftermarket steering wheels from Works Bell, Momo, Nardi and Personal.
As the Works Bell Paddle Shifter mechanism is a racing product designed for use in custom racing applications, it is designed to be wired into your car's electrical system by a qualified auto electrical engineer / auto electrician.
Installation should only be carried out by a qualified auto electrical engineer / auto electrician.
The Paddle Shifter mechanism ships with a short length of wiring preinstalled and soldered to the microswitches, but as this is a racing product designed for custom installations, the pre-installed wiring may need to be lengthened by your installer to suit your vehicle.
