The 99' has "VarioCam" timing." The 02' I have has "VarioCamPLUS" timing. It will work but your computer and wiring harness will not support the later cam timing feature.

And also, your throttle body is cable and the 02 is drive by wire.

What's wrong with your motor?

My 1999 996 just died with 94,386 miles on it.

After much deliberation (5 minutes), I order a brand new motor from Porsche. There is a way to make the newer motor fit the older 996 but the wire harness and computer need to be re-worked. I decided against it.

Sad day for me...and my wallet.

Take care,

Keith

Going with a stock motor is going to run me 12-14K installed. The price range is due to the fact that Porsche must determine if the core is any good. So, I assume the core is worth 2K. The tuning shop I am using told me the motor was going to cost him $9750 form Porsche. I get a two year warranty with no mileage limitations. I looked at it this way, I will always have a P-car in the garage (if I am not driving it) and this was the most economical way to keep one there for the short term.

Hmm, Its something I should start budgeting for as mine has 73k miles. Wonder if they have a life of around 90-100k miles and that's it...


Cheers

I agree that driving style and maintenance are very important. I purchased my car from the original owner who is a personal friend of mine. We sat down and went over every repair/maintenance receipt (all from reputable shops) before the purchase. The car has never seen the paint booth, no RMS issue, nor has it ever been red lined. Since purchasing the car I have continued with the maintenance via a reputable shop and while I drive a bit more spirited than my friend, the car has yet to be tracked or red lines. So, I like to think I take very good care of my cars...sometimes some things are out of our hands.

Good luck!

I might get to pick my car up in the morning...

Keith

I just posted on a '99 Carrera Cpe I saw with 54K miles for $28K. Looks good inside and out with perfect carfax--2 owners. But I would hesitate with that 3.4L engine/RMS issue.

[QUOTE=Keith Z in DC;3755166], nor has it ever been red lined.

I thought you were supposed to red-line these cars! I understood that if you never routinely rev these motors things don't get stretched or loaded or something like that (maybe I read that in Bruce Anderson's book?). The motors have rev limiters that prevent over-revving anyway, unless you over-rev on a forced downshift or something. Maybe the newer engines are different but I routinely rev up to red-line just about everytime I drive my 3.2 Targa (after it's warmed-up). It's never been apart and runs like an an angry top. It's really amazing, I wish I could thank the guy who bolted it together in 1987!

Yeah, that was true with my SC. You had to rev to 4000 rpm or more a few times when you drove it. But it's not true anymore--I was told by the dealer not necessary for my 03 Boxster. Probably not for the water-cooled 911s.
