Well, if we can find another good used immobilizer of that part number, I could likely make one up with the data from your original which I should have on file. It should be plug and play.

In my experience on the late 986/996s ('01+), if you have oil in it, it is usually the instrument cluster because someone jumped it backwards when the battery was dead at some point in time. That...

Soo, why do you need a new one? Did the original break? I would suggest replacing the door harness rather than splicing wiring. I bet Woody has a bunch, as well as other vendors, and they won't...

No, the CDR23 will only work in '03-'04 Boxsters with the optical MOST bus to the amplifier and CD changer.

You will need to find another CDR220 if you want to stay with a stock radio.
