If you want to run a different DME, try installing a late model (85.5 to '87) DME and AFM. You need to change both parts because the late model DME uses a 5 volt reference, and the early DME uses 8 volts. This is a "plug and play" swap. No need to chagne the DME harness.
What changes are noticed if the afm and dme are both swapped out? There are two 944's at a local wrecking yard and the good thing is the owner doesn't like porsches at all, but carries all other german cars in his yard, and it would be easy and cheap to get these parts if they are still on the car. Which is why I would like to know what changes/characteristics to expect with this swap. And pros/cons of doing so.....
