Funny, but I saw the C2 engine and transmission on ebay 10 days. One of the guys on the UK Boxster board saw a 3.2 Boxster engine on ebay and wanted to know if he could put it in is 2.5 Boxster. So I told him to check out US ebay for a 3.4 transplant.

I was going to tell you about the transmission but I though you had taken care of your transmission problem long ago. I hope you know it is a LHD transmission and you car will run backwards unless you shift with your right hand. :o

For what it is worth, I have seen the seller on ebay before with other 996 parts. Looks like he is parting out a 2001. I am bidding on the 4 stalk steering column switch assembly he has.

I'm afraid they are. UK engines turn the other way around, so they need different gearboxes, otherwise your car will indeed go backwards.

Fear not: you'd still have one forward gear, just six reverse gears seem a bit excessive.

:drive:

ROFLMAO! at least that's cheer'd me up a bit. OMG! what a total f*ck up! So I just bought myself a LHD gearbox for my RHD car. Freaking hell!

That'l teach me for trying to be clever. Thought a low mileage (3000mile) gearbox for roughly $2000 was really a cheap way out for me. But now I am stuck with a left hooking, backwards driving pile of cogs while my car's gearbox reamins wining!

What a nurd! Now I have two unwanted gearboxes. You have to laugh :oops:

Woa is me! :help:

OK, this is getting a bit too far ...

AFAIK, all MY 2000 Carrera 2 have the same G96/00 box (this can be easily verified with the parts catalogue). It is however true that sometimes there are country-specific versions of gearboxes because of emission or noise regulations. For instance, the MY94 993 had a G50/20 box for Switzerland, US and Australia and a G50/21 box for ROW. Also, I think there were some country-specific versions for Japan ...

Cheers,

Uwe

I have to hand it to you, you bastards got me good and proper :lightbulb:

I was in the shower just before thinking: hang on a minute, that has to be a load of BS. I mean the engine going the opposite way! What a load of horse crap. Holy cow. You got me. Then my wife shouted in to me "Hey Berny, what the hell you cackling and laghing at?". I was in total stitches. I mean really crying with laghter.

I never laghed so much in my life.

You bastards!

OMG! the sheer embarassment of it all! I think I will have to sell my porker now. I could never face you guys again.

Brilliant!
