1999 3.4L Boxster + original 2.5L in SoCal - $16k obo

Hello all;

I am selling my 1999 Boxster with a recently transplanted 3.4L 996 engine and I'm also including the original 2.5L with the sale. The car is in overall excellent condition. Nearly $21K spent on the recent engine swap and accompanying upgrades alone; approx $38k into this car since purchase in 2015. I’m selling b/c I have 2 young children and they are finally big enough to ride along with me; I just purchased a 996 so we could make family memories and I can’t keep both cars. The Boxster is located at my home in the Los Angeles area. Please call Marc for more information or additional photos at 310-989-3499. Car is available for viewing/driving anytime.Thanks for looking!

Asking $16,000 obo.

All the work below was done by well-respected SoCal Porsche mechanic and Formula Drift Champion Michael Essa at his shop, Essa Autosport, in Anaheim, CA. Michael is also available to discuss any of the work done on the car with an interested party. The complete ownership and work timeline is below. Clean CarFax; I am the 3rd owner. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

Wow, cool car that seems to be well done. I am not an interested buyer (i wish) but i am interested to hear how it sounds with that motor and exhaust, do you have a vid? i'm sure buyers would love to hear/see as well.
