Drove 2001 Box S with 99 911 Motor
 
Friend just picked up a 2001 Box S with a 99 911 motor tonight. What a fun car to drive. Can definitely notice the extra power over the 3.2 S. Very fun car. Definitely a nice option if the current motor ever dies.

Steering felt different. Firmer on my the 2000 S. His was a bit lower which definitely adds to the driving experience. His had PASM, 2000 did not. Could that be the difference on the steering?

We be Boxstering for sure.

PSM shouldn't affect the weight or feel of the steering during regular driving since it uses the brakes (only) to assist with out-of-ordinary handling situations.

3.2L to 3.4L, you gain about 45 HP, I think.

Was it just a plug-in and play swap?

3.2 had stronger cylinder walls though... bit of a downgrade there.

He bought the car with the change done. So not sure if plug and play.

Please explain cylinder wall reference. Learning as I go. Thanks

Larger displacement achieved (partially) through an increase in cylinder bore without increasing the outer diameter of the cylinder sleeves.

Thanks. So is that why the dreaded D chunk (is that right) exists?

yep. Virtually non-existent D chunk in 3.2's.
