Possible to use a boxster transaxle in 911 - reverse ring and pinion?

Hello everyone I hope Iím posting this in the correct category? First time I posted on here, usually use facebook.

Does anyone know if itís possible to use a boxster gearbox / transaxle in the back of a 911?

Ok so got this crazy project where I bough a 1795 911 rolling chassis. Iím looking for possibilities of a custom restomod. First thing is I thought about using a boxster engine in the back. These are now nice and cheap, a lot cheaper than a 996 motor.

Original air cooled motors are crazy money today and all seem to need a rebuild. Magnesium case, which was supposed to come with this car could be even worse when you factor in the case maybe warped.

5 speed Boxster transaxles are very cheap here in the UK and should fit the tunnel without modification.

Is it possible that a Subaru reverse ring and pinion would fit inside the bioxster trans?

Subaru gears make a reverse ring and pinion.

I know the 996 box would be good but would need to modify the tunnel.

Anyone got any ideas ?

Thatís an interesting idea.

Donít Boxster / 996+ Porsches use the standard FWD VW engine bolt pattern?

The VW R32 V6 is a freaking fantastic motor, super light, compact and like 265 hp bone stock.

I think the Boxster uses a cable shift so it be pretty easy to route the cables and use a Boxster gear shift. Youíll need a hydraulic clutch pedal also.
