Where to buy a 2003-2004 3 chain engine manual

I would like to buy a engine manual for my 2003 Boxster S. Any idea where it can be purchased? Bentley has no 3 chain engine info.

I have a tick in # 6 and I have borescoped both ends of the bore and it's clear. I have searched all over the internet and forums and I can't seem to locate any info on replacing the lifters on #2 bank. I have the cover off and the cams look good.

Porsche never published much on the engine in these cars as they did not expect the field techs to be pulling them apart, just replacing them.

I ended up buying the Carrera 996 manual from Bentley’s since it covers the 3.6 engine which is 3 chain. No real in-depth in there either, and it’s quite pricey.
