2003 3.4 street/track for sale

Up for sale is my 2003 Boxster with a 3.4 Carrera motor. Steinel's in Twinsburg, OH did the swap and they did a stellar job. The car has no mechanical issues and has been maintained to the highest standards the entire time I have owned it. 2 sets of seats go with the car. The original leather seats are like new and there is also a nice set of GT3 style seats that go along for the track.

There is only one issue with the car and it really isn't an issue unless you are in CA or similar. There is a constant check engine light due to the '01 911 motor in an '03 Boxster. The '03 DME looks for 43 adjustments to the vari-cam and the '01 motor has less than that, 21 I think I was told. It does not affect the drivability or power at all. The vario cam simply goes to the next closest degree and throws a light. The car does pass Ohio E-Check whenever I need plates. I explain the new motor to them, show them the receipts, they throw it on the emissions tester and it always passes. You should check with your DMV to make sure this setup will be OK in your locale.

This car drives and handles like a beast on the track and is very nice and respectable around town with the street tires, brakes and leather seats. Appr. 300 HP at the crank.

All repair/maintenance receipts since my purchase of the car in '06. I am the 2nd owner.
