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.
mine is an 88 and has 2 sets of holes about an inch apart.
