Should I keep the engine w only 44k on the clock and a brand new flywheel?

What exactly happened? Did the insurance company reimburse you for the car and then offer you a chance to buy the totaled vehicle? If so, at what price? Odds are good that you could make more parting out the non-damaged pieces than the price of buying the salvaged car back from the insurance company. But that presumes you are capable and willing to keep a wrecked shell and sell the pieces on demand.

Regarding keeping the engine, your guess is as good as mine. What condition was the motor in? Have you done preventative maintenance likes IMS bearing replacement? Are you going to swap the motor yourself, or have a shop do it? A shop swap is likely going to run at least $3k in labor plus whatever preventative maintenance you elect to do while the motor is easily accessible.

And if you can't find a 996 core, the 3.4L motor can be swapped into a 97-99 Boxster if you want a deceptively fast convertible: http://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Boxster_Tech/11-ENGINE-911_Engine_Swap/11-ENGINE-911_Engine_Swap.htm

I hit a light post and the car is a total loss - the ins company will deduct 1600 for the payment if I want to keep the car. I think that you have answered my question there. This is what I am thinking about buying:http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390629769073#ht_6207wt_1167
