Re: Motor Porsche 996/997 3.4 of 3.6
Linkerkant nog net op de zijkant van het blok als je naast de auto zit zou je dit plaatje moeten vinden. Even op de knieen dus.
En nog wat uitleg (hoort niet bij de foto)
I'm going from Grant Neal's book "Ulitimate Buyers' Guide - 997" and it seems your engine number 69611333 would decode as follows: the first digit "6" refers to the number of cylinders, the second digit "9" is the engine type (in this case 9 for the Carrera, and 8 for the Carrera S ), the third digit "6" refers to the year made (2006) and the last 5 digits, 11333, are your individual engine serial number.
Neal does not specifically mention if all M97 engines are the 3.8, but he does provide a table of all engine types in 997s from 2005 to 2007. In that table the Carrera with the 3.6 has M96.05 from '05 to '07, whereas the Carrera S has M97.01 for the same years, so I suspect M97 does indeed refer to the 3.8 S, and M96 is the 3.6 - perhaps the "M96.05" implies the fifth variation of the M96 engine.
As for transmissions, it seems all rear-wheel drive Carreras (S or otherwise) received the same G97.01 transmission from '05 to '07. The G97.01 was apparently developed for the up-rated S, but used in the Carrera as well.
