Fitting a 2001 2.7 engine into a 2000 2.7 car

986 model years 2000 through 2002 share the same 7.2 DME, so they should just drop right in from a wiring perspective.

That being said, to make sure, if you could post the engine serial numbers for BOTH engines, they can be decoded to make certain.

The engine is out of a 2001 chassis number WP0ZZZ98Z1U601033

Car its going in is a 2000 with a chassis number of WP0ZZZ98ZYU600562

Is there any differences. Is the inlet manifold the same


Sorry, the VIN will not tell the engine serial number information (engines get changed out).

The engine serial number is on the left rear of the engine case.

65Y is a 2000 year engine, sequence number 06828. 2.7L

651 is a 2001 year engine, sequence number 104774 2.7L (actually one too many digits in the sequence IIRC).

So basically it's the same engine, both use the same engine computer & wiring 7.2 DME.

I can't see any reason why it wouldn't just drop in. I'm not aware of any changes to intake/exhaust/etc. that you mention, but I'm more well versed on 996 than 986..
