    No the two numbers are completely unique. That should be the original engine as is wa built in 1997.

  8. If you PM me your VIN I can check and see what your car came with. Though, the springs could have been changed by previous owner (if there was one).
  9. Color codes front to rear are different. They are also different depending on RoW or US/Canada springs (ride height). They are also different depending on coupe or cabriolet -and whether you have a manual (6-speed) or Tiptronic.

    Unable to find my EVAP diagram

    P0446 EVAP Canister Shutoff Valve (Function) – Below Limit Possible causes: – Purge air line blocked – Flow resistance of EVAP canister too high

    Unable to find my EVAP diagram

    P0486 ? That does not show in any of factory service manuals. Are you using a Porsche specific tester? There were at least 5 different EVAP canisters used in Boxsters. You may end up having to add parts to put a working system together. Give your dealer your VIN and they should be able to guide to the replacement parts to make it work.

  14. Two beeps means there is an alarm fault - one beep means there is an open zone. You need a Porsche specific scan tool tester to get the fault code(s) and diagnose what is needed to repair. An excellent Porsche specific scan tool is Durametric but a few other tools may work as well.
