A few have been finished and are driving.
The hard part seems to be mating engine to trans.
A few have gotten a FWD 1.8 transaxle and cut it up/machined a BH out of it and then made an adapter plate to bolt between the "BH" and the 944 torque tube.

There is a Quicktime brand steel bellhousing available for the 1.8 for about $700 but then you still need to make an adapter to the 944 tube.

Engine fits very easily as it is super compact - mounts are the "easy part". From what I've seen it's either custom intake manifold or modified B5 Passat intake manifold with the throttle body moved a bit to clear 944 brake master cylinder.
