3.4 ECU (DME)

Recommended Posts

Ladies and Gentlemen,

A long story short,

I have a MY1997 Boxter, I fitted a MY2000 996 3.4 , engine, but ran the car with the standard 2.5 DME, obviousy with reduced power.

There were some "clever" people and I think they blew my 2.5 DME.

I eventually got the car running again with the 3.4 DME(MY 2000), the 996 Security module, and the 996 FOB transponder pil in my key that I purchased with the engine.

The car goes like crazy now and the power is amazing, but, because of the MY 2000 996 security module, a few things do not work.

(obviously the 996 did not have a cabriolet top or remote boot and the frequency of the remote key is different to the security module's frequency?

The security module is from a US car and my car is European/South African..)

The soft top, the remote for the doors and the boot does not open with the remote on the key.

We do not have people in South Africa that can do programming of the DME except for Porsche South Africa,

and they want to replace both the DME and the security module with new ones, charging me a 1/4 of the cars value.

Does any body know where I could possiby buy another DME programmed with my original programming codes?,

or sell me another DME/Security module FOB key combination?

(I do have my car's programming codes for both the security module and the DME)
