    3.4L motor available in the 987S?

    Will Porsche make the 3.4L/295HP motor an option in the 987S. If not, would it be logical to expect it to be easily placed in the 987 chassis?

    Re: 3.4L motor available in the 987S?

    Who would want an engine change for a measely 15 BHP??

    Re: 3.4L motor available in the 987S?

    I contacted RUF and they told me they will be offering a 3.6 conversion later on this year for the 987. How much you ask?




    Only 30K USD

    Re: 3.4L motor available in the 987S?

    Cayman has probably being in development for a while, if they had wanted to put 3.4l in 987 S they would have done so already, this car is marketed as in between 987 and 911 which means if they give 987 S the same engine, no point n cayman at all. right?

    For that amount, I'd want the GT3's 3.6

    Re: 3.4L motor available in the 987S?

    That $30K might seem OK to me if it were the 3.8L engine - I wonder why they would bother with the 3.6 when the engines probably cost almost the same $$??

    An Remap of the 3.2 987 engine will deliver 300 BHP
    see this e mail from a UK tuner
    "Apologies for the delay in reply but we have just released our upgrades for the 987 boxster S, with our ECU re-map (this is undetectable to dealer diagnostics) now takes the power up to 300Bhp and an extra 17 lb/ft of torque, the gains also give improved throttle response and better mid range.

    The variocam system also releases extra power above 5100rpm right to the rev limiter, it makes the car a lot more exciting to drive and the chassis can certainly handle it!

    Cost of the upgrade is Pounds850+VAT and can be carried out at our premises or if more convenient at your home or work the cost is the same.

    I hope this info helps, please contact us if we can help further.

    Best Regards

    I am sure DMS Automotive are a reputable firm BUT I wouldn't let non-Porsche personnel within a thousand light years of my Boxster.

    Dreamcar-they have been featured in GT Purely Porsche and the guy runs his own 996 Turbo. Its not for everyone but it is a quick and easy install

    Re: 3.4L motor available in the 987S?

    I am sure the car with 280BHP will be plenty quick enough for me - and I like to sleep at night.

    hahaha
