  1. 2002+ boxster and its easy, pre 2002 you're gonna have some fun
  2. thank you both, i have not viewed this engine yet hence my post but i appreciate your help
  3. Looking at a replacement motor for my Boxster project. I located a potential candidate and it reads to be an OEM reman. How do I determine if this is an X51 version. I think its a 2005 3.6 M96/03AT66565897 Any help is appreciated
  4. I too was considering this swap and thought it would be as simple as swapping the egas and non egas throttle bodies but apparently not.
  5. yup, I have oil in the coolant and coolant in my passenger bank spark plugs, failed head
  6. Im smoking too, I think I have a cracked head tho as Im getting coolant out the tail pipe and coolant in the passenger side spark plugs
  7. Seeing that the car was running and brought in for water pump. The car clearly was driveable. I'd do a leakdown test to confirm its solely the waterpump which has failed and not a cracked head like mine. If all checks and no cracked head, I'd have them fix the waterpump and IMS bearing and your car will be able to drive out. You are at worst 10hours labour so far. It can't take more than 6hours to replace water pump and IMS. Clutch labour will be included in the 10 hours of reinstalling the transmission FYI I paid $3500 for my 1997 last year with coolant and oil intermix, 133,000miles should you decide to sell it. Its a fair price. The question is how much are you willing to spend on repairing the car???
  8. Awaiting transplant

  9. Does anyone know of an air bag cover without the actual bag? I know when people upgrade to aftermarket steering wheels they no longer have the airbags. So I've located a 3spoke wheel but does not include the airbag. Its easy to see that 4spoke bag will not work. Are there any solutions to this issue as the airbags for this wheel is as rare as locating the steering wheel itself. Looking to find a solution to the air bag in the steering wheel, hopefully an air bag cover
  10. I too am in Toronto. Looking into engine options. There is one local shop who has a rebuilt 2.5 on kijiji. They wanted I believe $6500. There is the shop Jaak took his car to that quoted me around $8k to rebuild. I'm just gonna wait till I find me a 3.4 and call it a day
  11. My 97 is the exact same but I was gonna swap motor regardless No, there is no smoke on start up. But the exhaust smells of gasoline on start up and goes away after it warms up. Could possibly be the fuel pump, but what is the definition of "ran too many times at low level"? Below half? 1/4? To be honest I usually don't add my tank to full when i'm at the station.
  12. Thanks guys. At the time I saw the serial number and not until I got home and online did I realize that I was looking at the head not the block. I guess I was hoping that the 996 preceeding the sn would suggest it being a 3.4l as the car had already been converted to gemballa and started leaking coolant from the tail pipe. The shop who did the swap ordered a crate motor from Porsche corresponding to the vin thus having nothing to do with gemballa and being plug and play for the mechanic. Thanks again
  13. I've been looking for a M96 core and finally located one locally. Seller claims it was removed from a Gembella boxster, which really means nothing to me. Anyways it had this stamped on the side of the motor, possibly the head. Did not have much access as the motor is in a crate on a shelf. Anyhow number reads as follows: 996 104227 0 R If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it. Im hoping this is possibly a 3.4 rather than a 2.5 but it really doesnt matter
