  1. Hi, Yes, managed to get it running. Actually had it MOTd and on the road this week. Still a few bits to do, but couldn’t resist top down motoring, since the sun shines so rarely here in the UK. You need to get hold of the proper 2003 wiring diagram, it’s easy once you have this. The one on the pelican parts web site is no good, ignore it, it’s a red herring. Wasted far too much time with it. I assuming you’ve used the 2003 engine wiring loom and DME7.8 ECU. If you took the wiring loom from the 2003 engine, you’d assume that these connections to t
  2. Thanks Richard, I’ll double check, but I’m certain it’s a DME7.8. The registration plate is also 2002, so must be a late model? i used the original key fob and just changed the blade.

  4. Hi, I have replaced the 3.4S engine with an IMS bearing failure out of my 2001 Boxster (DME7.2) and with a replacement from 2002 Boxster engine, but with a DME7.8. As I understand it the 2001 model I have has partial CAN bus. I swapped the engine, gearbox, instrument cluster, immobiliser, key reader module (next to the steering column), the key. I have re-pinned 98% of the ECU plugs to suit the DME7.8 diagram I found on the forum. The wiring is not right though at the multi-pin plugs in the boot and I can't find a wiring diagram for the 2002 model. Not even the Bentley
