Is it possible...

Is it possible to drop a 2008 Cayman 987C S 3.4 engine into a 2002 986 (2.7)?

Tim

which one is the best fit?

The Boxster 2001 cars are by far the most flexible in which engine you can install in them. The 2001 cars still have the 7.2 DME installed, but most of the other systems of the car were upgraded in anticipation of moving towards the 2002 CAN bus system that integrates various electronic systems on the car. With the exception of the anti-lock braking system, the proper CAN bus systems are integrated into the 2001 chassis and allow the easy installation of the later 7.8 DME. As a result, you can install any 1997-08 Boxster or 996 Carrera motor into these cars without too much difficulty.


I wouldn't mind adding one at some point if the price is right, anyone have a newer 996 with low miles laying around?
