As an Audi mechanic you should feel at home with a lot of things. The transmissions, with the exception of those in the 924 Turbo (aka 931) are essentially Audi boxes. The car was originally destined to be an Audi-badged sportscar,, but the fuel crisis led Audi to sell back the project to Porsche (who had developed it for them from the start anyway). Nevertheless, All 924s and 944s (with the exception of very late 944s and all 968s) were produced in Neckarslum.

As I'm sure you know, Porsche and Audi have collaborated on many projects, the last probably being the RS2.

Visit Clark's Garage Home Page for an overview of model year changes.

I would recommend an '87 and newer car for a variety of reasons. In 1988 they came with a plastic fuel tank. 1987 cars and later all have suspension for late offset wheels, allowing for a greater selection of OEM Porsche wheels.

An NA 8-valve 2.5 engine isn't good for much power without doing gobs of internal work. Even then, it isn't good for much north of 275 hp.

Look forward to hearing more on your project.

Take care!
