RE: 944 engine into quattro? (4k,5k)

You and I must be thinking of different cars- the 924GTR(?) that
I'm thinking of was introduced by Porsche in the late '70s, I think,
produced about 300bhp and was a full-on tube framed racecar. It was
featured in Porsche's beautiful series of ads in the late '80s
that also included the 911RSR and the 935. I don't have any reference
material in front of me, so I can't tell you the exact chassis number
with certainty.

Again, I'm asking you for my own knowledge, not just to argue with
you- what cost $8k on a 924 engine?

I never looked that closely at a 951 under the hood, so I'll defer to
your knowledge- that's too bad that it doesn't sound like a viable
swap. I've heard of some fire-breathing 20v I5 transplants, so I
guess the 951 transplant is rather unnecessary. What do you think of
a 1.8T transplant?
