04 Boxster S Engine Failed IMS 76k miles - entire engine or parts

SOLD!!!


I am selling the engine or if no one is interested in the engine as a whole, parts from my 04 Boxster with 76k miles. The previous owner believed that the IMS failed and I bought it as a non-runner. I pulled the engine and am looking to clear it out.

The oil looked fine, no particles and certainly no chunks but you should assume that it will need a rebuild. I did no investigation pf the engine and don't plan on a tear down/

If it doesn't sell as an entire engine then I will begin parting it out.

$2500 for the whole thing (less the wiring harness) plus shipping from zip code 60565.


E-mail me through the forum or sned me a PM or text 63O-23four-7one87

Thanks!

Definitely a failed IMS What's a Boxster S Engine with IMS failure worth?

I will be parting this out once I have a chance to break it down further.

Do you think the price is too low?

I hope folks will chime in if I price something too low.

LOL, i like the sense of humor.

for a point of reference, i regularly see Base boxsters with a blown motor sell for $2,500 as a complete car.

another example, there was just a documented running S motor for sale on CL by me with 76k miles for $3k which is a good price for an S motor but sets the bar. In the post you linked the advice provided was the motor wasn't worth much, maybe $1k max (which i think is still high).

obviously your motor and your call, but if you are truly looking to sell it in that condition i dont believe you'll have any takers on this board.

offering unsolicited advice, no disrespect intended.
