3.4 conversion

Recommended Posts

guys, i have read a lot of posts regarding to this conversion from other forums. however, most of the conversions have been done from the east coast and mid-west areas. does anybody here in the bay area had done the conversion or know a local shop that can do the job? i would love to hear from you.

i have a 97 and have been thinking of converting it to a 3.4.

Natzee, i live up on the north coast and have a 97 3.4. It is a truly wonderfully balanced and fun car. So easy to drive fast and the cornering is superb. 97 is the best year for it also as it is the lightest weight boxster. Mine, with gt3 seats, and other weight savings weighs just over 2500lbs. My conversion was done back east but I would try Rob King at Scargo in San Rafael. Good luck. Come on up if you want a test drive.

great, i will be there :-). thx tp.

-RiverFlyer, how long have you had the conversion? Did you upgrade the tires/brake? I heard for 97 model porsche did not recomend 18 inches rim.

Also, do you have any issues with the car so far?
