Hey guys, I have 2000 Boxster S thats been sitting for months now because it has a rod bearing issue. I found a running 2.5 for cheap becuase its a family friend. I wanted to know what would be needed to do a swap like that? Would it be harder or simple. Im thinking the DME would need to be remapped. Or is it better to sell the car as is? Im trying to empty out the garage so whichever would be faster.

Had my 2004 996 C2 towed to the shop after I heard a noise from the engine and it quickly stopped running. The diagnosis from my mechanic is a blown engine. There is lots of metal in the oil but apparently it is not the dreaded IMS failure (had IMS upgrade by LN Engineering installed 2 years ago). They haven't taken the engine apart so I am not sure exactly what failed.
The car has only about 65,000 km on it and it was well maintained.
Both street and occasional track driving.
Anyone know for a good used engine? (in Canada preferably)
Any guesses as to the value for the car as is? It is in great condition other than the (worthless) engine.
