Idles of March: 1998 Porsche Boxster 3.4L Swap

Beware the non-idling cars of March, celebrated today on the Ides of March. This next car doesn’t run, and it should send a sword through shiver down your spine quicker than you can say “Et tu, Brute?!”  That’s right, we found the ultimate unloved Boxster with a busted 911 engine swap.  Did somebody dial 911? Find this 1998 Porsche Boxster with 911 engine offered for $3,000 in Katonah, NY via craigslist.  Tip from Cory.

Information in the ad is limited, just a few pictures and a brief description:

Porsche Boxster 911 conversion 3.4 liter NEEDS MOTOR REBUILT

Motor is NG , cracked cylinder

I had a 911 3.4 installed 50k miles ago along with headers and 911 brake/rotors

The car is in fantastic shape otherwise along with a new clutch 6 months ago

I think the correct way to bring this thing back from the dead is with a 996 (twin) Turbo engine to replace the busted 3.4, but it’ll cost you a few bucks no matter how you cut it.
