Help with engine swap 2.7 to 3.2


Recommended Posts

I have a MY 00 Boxster(2.7) with blown engine secondary to timing chain/tensioner failure (so says the Porsche mechanic).

I found a 3.2l from a Boxster S, same model year, however the wrecked boxster it's coming from has the auto trans. Any thoughts with this engine swap to my Boxster that has a 5 speed manual transmission? Any significant changes I will have to make for this engine swap? Any changes I would have to make to my clutch to take on this bigger motor?

Can somoeond direct to a DIY article for engine removal. I searcched under DIY forum, but I was unable to find an article

Thanks to all for any contributions,suggestions

has any one re-powered a 2.7 Boxster with a 3.2?

I checked out nutrod, looks like great post, but it looks like a simple plug -n-play fit for the same motor. I guesss the big question, is this: can I re-power with a 3.2l Boxster motor, that is coming out of same year Boxster that is set up for auto/triptronic trans? I would love to re-power to the bigger 3.2l motor, but I'm concerned about the possible modifications that I would have to make. It does not sound like a "plug-n-play," even though it's the same model year.

Anyone out there done this repower, and if so, what modifications will I need to make?....for the price of the motor, is it worth it? Do I need major changes to the ECU to make the computer "understand/recognize" the larger motor/different trans? Three different independent Porsche shops, told me that this is not a clean, or easy repowe...and they are unwilling to to the re-power. "They" say it would be added cost/labor in telling (programing) the ECU that this is a different motor, and that it is now on a 5-speed trans vs. 6-speed trans, or triptronic. Local Porsche mechanics said this is a pain in the ***, and pricey re-power. I would be using all electrical from by current MY00 Boxster 2.7

Has anybody done this engine swap, and how difficult is it? Should I stick with another 2.7l motor? Please help, as I do not know what is the most cost effective option, as well as the the easiest option...should I stick to same model year 2.7?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
