Is it difficult or expensive to convert Porsche 930 trans long bell housing to short?

Does anybody know what needs to be done in order to take a Porsche 930 long bell housing transmission and convert it to a short bell housing?

What needs to be done,how difficult and how expensive is it?

What year gearbox? Some can just be shortened. Others require material to be welded back on and through drilled. Not all 930 castings are the same. Post a picture of your bellhouding.

I am facing the same challenge. doing a restoration on a 78 SC/930 conversion. SC tub needs a short BH. when ready to get a gearbox if I cannot find a 76-77 short BH will look at having one shortened. whatever I start with will get rebuilt as needed and considering changing 2 and 3rd.

good luck.
