Yawohl! But the (944 and ) 951 (turbo 944) is a "whole nother" beastie. Heads
are the same as one bank of the 928, and it uses dual counter-rotating balance
shafts (Mitsubishi patent, alas...). Unlike the 924, which is *Audi*
engine/tranny, designed and built in Nekarsulm (*Audi*), the 944 engine/tranny
is all Porsche. The later 924S is a 944 without the fender flares (cheaper and
better Cd, so faster too).
(note two occurances of *Audi* in this response...)
