hi. searched the forum and couldn't find anything so here goes ...

996.2 3.6L x51 engine into 987.1 cayman. 345 free-revving hp before I breath on it, so a good match for the cayman. mechanical feng shui should be the same as any 911 engine into a cayman/boxster (fuel lines, coolant lines, etc.). 7.8 ecu is the same. the question is the flash. i'd like to run a row 996 x51 flash, but am worried that I would lose some of the 9x7 functionality such as sport chrono, psm, tpms and pasm. any thoughts, links or existing threads you could point me to? thanks, trk.

You should post some pics of the engine. I believe if you do some searches there is a list of parts. A lot of them would come from the 3.4L in the Cayman but think need different engine mounts etc.

yeah i've got a pretty good grip on the mechanical side of things. what i'm wondering about is if i push a 996 flash onto the car will i lose sport chrono, pasm, etc. - ie, does their functionality come from stand-alone modules or are they driven by the ecu. worst case i could probably use a 3.8 x51 flash for a 997.1 as i assume eit would adapt to the smaller displacement ok.
