Just went thru this when installing a 3.3 turbo motor and transaxle into a 1979 911SC chassis which used the 915 trans and i believe is the same length as the later 911 chassis that you have. From 1978 onwards a 930 motor is relocated further rearwards in the chassis to make room for the longer bellhousing that was required to house the rubber clutch . This is also a reason for the increase in rear tire pressure recommendation to 43 PSI as now the car is more tail happy with the motor weight further back. So either use a pre1978 930 transaxle bellhousing ( very expensive as they are in demand for the reasons being discussed ) or have a later trans axle bellhousing shortened. Patrick motorsports in Phoenix offeres this service for around $1K if you seperate and just send the bellhousing.
