M96/M97 compatibility questions
I had not realized that Porsche continued to use the M96 (M96.05) engine in the base Carrera all the way up to 2009  I thought they switched to M97 at the same time as Cayman / Boxster. It looks like the Carrera S did switch, but base car carried on with M96.
My first question is  what IMS does the M96.05 base Carrera 20062008 have? would it be later M97 style, or earlier more easily serviceable version?
I guess that leads to my question about compatibility. Would the M96.05 work in a 20062008 Cayman / Boxster, or alternately  would a M97 from a Carrera S work  or is this like pounding a square peg in a round hole?
Is there a list somewhere that shows which engines can be swapped in to various cars / years? I have done a search, but there does not seem to be a complete list. I have read the engine swap article in Wayne's book by Todd Holyoak.
I am wondering if this all boils down to version of DME. I won't ask about putting a MA1 engine in to an earlier car  I assume that the Siemens DME will not work with an earlier car that uses Bosch.
