Here is what I can give you so far:


-I will get back to you for the year of the engine.
- Milage is unknown. motor was in his 83 944 that he purchased but before buying had sent it in for it's due diligence and all was well.
- leak down test was performed at 100psi, leak rate is between 1 and 2% between all cylinders.

Reason for pulling the engine out is that engine was wired with original 1983 944 wiring and DME. He had an electrical problem that required replacing the old wiring and getting a new DME plus reprogramming. He had bought the wiring and DME from a 968 to do the swap. He though it would be easier, more efficient and cost saving. But the electrician and mechanic judged it was not a good idea because of the condition of the car.

cheers, JJ
