Motor Swap, NOT 3.4

Recommended Posts

Ok, this may have been covered at some point, but I am new here, and kinda in a time crunch. I have a 97' Boxster, with 115k on it. Recently I started getting camshaft sensor errors and misfires. So I put the car in the garage, and left it there. I talked to the nearest dealer (over an hour away, since my local dealer lost its porsche dealership, and only uses the dealership for laundering), they told me that they think it's timing chain issue, and that the job will cost 2k or more. The car has very high sentimental value to me, and I don't want to sell it. So I am considering doing a motor swap, as I think it will be cheaper in the long run. I don't want to go as far as a 3.4 996 motor, as I want to go Boxster-toBoxster. I would really like to put a little more beef in the car while I am at it. I found a 2.7 out of a 05 987. Is this swap compatable? If not what swaps are? And which ones are best for my car?
