VERY cool!

I was actually wondering a few days ago what a 996 would be like with an Audi 2.7L turbo engine from the circa 2000 S4.

Would love to know the details of this swap. I assume this is the easiest swap on earlier Boxsters?

I think that engine would be way too big, it hardly even fit the b5.

I'd love to drive a boxster like this but with a gt28rs turbo! All of the power! That would be an easy 350hp wheel.

If anyone wants any more details on any certain part of the job, let me know. I still have the complete original engine, ecm, wire harness, left side cat, muffler from the Boxster, if someone needs something, let me know that too.

The 2.7tt swap has been done. However the 1.8t is a much better choice for so many reasons. Truly love seeing the 1.8t being swapped in. This is coming from someone who doesn’t like engine swaps.

It sure would. What would make it even better is if it were a 99 c2 so you could swap in an AEB cable driven 1.8t as they have a large port head over the AWM. Cost is going to come into play of how much you can do yourself.

The 996 transmission will not allow the 1.8t engine to just bolt up to it directly like the Boxster does. I'm sure an adapter plate and custom flywheel could be made, or perhaps it already exists. I'm not sure how well this inline 4 would fit under the lid in place of the flat 6, the boxster with its mid-engine has all the height it needs but just barely.
