Variocam engine 2003 or 2004?

Hi guys,

Looking at either a 03 or 04 Boxster and am wondering when the variocam upgrade was introduced, 03 or 04.

My understanding is that the variocam upgrade gave a slight power increase to offset improvements (extra weight) in the sound proofing for the roof and glass rear window.

Hopefully I am not talking complete rubbish and someone will know what I mean!

Thanks everyone.

Oz.

Hello, Aussie. I think the Boxster got Variocam in model year 2003 and Variocam Plus in model year 2007. (I'm sure someone will correct me if I am mistaken.)

Best,

Snaxster

I know that my 2003 had Variocam, and yes, a glass back window and well insulated top...
