Help! with 3.4 swap

Recommended Posts

I have a boxster with no engine, no transmission, no dme and no dme harness.only have harness coming from dash to the back.

i am getting ready to pick up a salvage 996 from a friend for $3500, car still starts. not e-gas.

here are my question once i obtain the 996.

1. can i use the dme and dme harness from his 996 in the boxster or do i have to do the whole harness swap from cluster all the way back to rear?

do i still have to have it reflash for security bypass?

2. i know i'll still have to find a tiptronic transmission for boxster to mate with the 996 engine and sell the 996 transmission.

and buy a couple of mounts. i won't need spacer for the mount for my project because the whole engine compartment lid area has been

chopped off.revealing only the frame of car.unless somehow i can turn around the whole engine and transmission like in a boxster and make it

work somehow,then i'll be able to drive backward real fast,lol.

3.dropping in a 996 without the old engine is gonna suck, what parts do i need to obtain, i have tod write up but he has an old engine and he is using

his boxster dme. but if i have the whole 996 car what is needed to be remove to complete the swap?

here is the picture of my project i am building.

As you can see in the first picture the entire boxster engine compartment is gone.
