3.4L to 3.6L Conversion NIGHTMARE

Recommended Posts

Thanks Todd. The good news is that I am getting everything you mentioned to include the ABS and HVAC controller all from the same 2002 3.6. I didn't think to get the ABS Wheel sensors, but I should be able to tack that on to my order. I'll check to see what is on my 996 with respect to the ABS, but feel safer just ordering it as not to delay any work. I do have egas (confirmed last night by throttle body examination).

I do have the wiring diagram(s) for my 2000. I'll need to find/locate the 2002 wiring diagrams.

What I bought from the 2002 996 3.6:

3.6 complete engine (40,100 miles)

ECU/ DME 7.8

Wiring harness from ECU back to engine

Instrument cluster


Ignition Key head

ABS Controller

HAVC Control

Todd - I spent some time this weekend looking over the clusters from the 2000 to 2002. I got nearly everything translated. There are some of the 2000 C2 pinouts that didn't fit into the 2002 pins, but I have to assume they were either removed or ran elsewhere. I'm pretty confident about the wiring cluster, however my current setup ABS is 5.3. I was comparing the 5.3 connector to the 5.7 and unfortunately, they are different. I'll have to figure out a way to make this work.
