Boxster Transmission Mounts vs 911 engine mounts


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I was looking for some Boxster transmission mounts for a 2000 Boxster. I noticed that the 911 996 Engine mounts look identical to the Boxster transmission mounts, except that the 911 engine mounts have a longer bolt stem. The part numbers are also almost the same except at the end (993-375-049-05-M100 for the Boxster Transmission mount w/out the bracket, 993-375-049-06-M270 for the 911 engine mount) I am thinking the last part of the part numbers could only be different because of the length of the stem. If this is the case, then it should work. Ohh and isnt the Boxster almost the same chassis as the 911 except the engine is flipped around to mid engine?

The reason why I am asking this is because a pair of engine mounts for the 911 are only $170.00 brand new on ebay, vs almost $270.00 each for the Boxster transmission mounts.

This could save a lot of people money :)

Let me know what you think

It could save people money.. but out of the 100's of Boxster I have dealt with to date? I have seen just a couple of bad mounts :)

Yes. The 996 engine mount will work. Pull the stud out of your mount and remove the stud from the 996 mount and replace with the Boxster stud.

Or.. send me your address and I'll send you a pair of the 8-10 sets I have sitting here for shipping costs. I use the WEVO tranny mounts in our race cars which yields several sets of used good ones laying around.

Want to get really fancy? 964Cup engine mounts or 996TT engine mounts.
