Anyone have a motor for me?

I am still in the market for a 3.4. If anyone knows of anything good I would love to hear about it.

Have you called Jake Raby to talk to him about what he might be able to shoehorn into your 99?

I'd figure out a way to get that 3.2 conversion (now a 3.6) in there.

It's a lot more money, but you would have one WICKED fast boxster.

Our 2.9 is based from the 2.5 mixed with a 2.7 crank.

Its now rated at 260 HP and requires no conversion in an early car- drops right in.

I dont have to modify anything if i do a 3.4 either. Just some mounts and a ecu reflash and some injector swapping. I would love to find a good 3.4 and just drop that in.

thanks for the ideas though

If I'm not mistaken, you'll have to do some custom exhaust work to make it work in your boxster. So it's not a straight swap.
