Yes, you need the engine to be in the same position to make the engine mount line up, plus the engine cooling tins / sheetmetal, exhaust, etc.

The Turbo's case, engine console (steel bracket around the pulley) and engine mount crossbar are dimensionally the same as the Carrera's.

If you put the engine & gearbox into the chassis, are you saying the transmission crossmember holes do not line up with the chassis' holes?
Is your gearbox clearing the torsion tube housing completely?

As far as I know, only the 1987 chassis had 2 sets of gearbox mounting holes depending if the car got a Turbo/4-sp or Carrera/G50 drive train.
