Hello there

I have

97 986 with 83700 mile and tip transsy

I am doing 3.2 conversion and I Need to know all parts that I need ( the major one) and how many hours to complete the conversion. if you guys know how much the conversion cost that would be great.

Fly wheel is not coming from the engine and the torque converter is also is not coming out so I would have to buy a new one.

I also want to now if my tiptronic transsy with 30 k mile would handle the torque and what modification need to be done to it.

No you aren't...

The conversion you suggest is complicated by the differing engine control electronics. A 2.7 to 3.2 is easy compared to this.

So the very fact that you are asking such basic questions says to me that you aren't experienced enough to pull off this swap. Can be done? Yes. Easy? Not at all. Cheap, no because of the eGas (3.2) versus non-eGas (2.5).

Be content with having a great handling car with adequate horsepower to get you in trouble. If you want more, buy a S model. Having had a '99 base 2.5 TIP and a '01 S 3.2 TIP, the difference in most driving daily driver situations is not that significant. I'd be just as happy to have my '99 back (totaled).

~40 hours for an experienced mechanic who had all the parts on hand and no problems with used parts...that translates to $4k plus parts.

The tip is made by ZF. They use progressively larger/stronger tips denoted by increasing model numbers for handling increased power. The ZF tip desination for the 986 and 996 are the same. The same unit is also used in the early Audi TT, Passat and some Audi V8s. The Boxster S tip does use a "version two" of the same model number/design, possibly related to different gearing ratios to better handle the power.
