1986 944 turbo parts on 1986 944 NA

I would like to know if I can use the suspension and brake parts (discs and pads) from a 944 turbo into a 944 NA, and also, if the 944 NA clutch would match the 944 turbo torque tube and axles.

And wich other parts can I use from the turbo into the NA.....


Step on it!!!!

Suspension parts are mostly interchangeable with in the same year group. Might be a bit of a difference in the master cylinder for the turbo brakes and the non-turbo.

Nobody uses the rubber center clutch disk any more. We use the turbo spring center disk. But yes the torque tube is the same. The gear ratios in the turbo trans is different. Then the turbo trans is most likely a limited slip differential.

As to suspension arms; the aluminum arms use a slightly different length half axle than the steel arms.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?

Its a straight swap for the 86'. I swapped turbo brakes into my NA. The rears are straight forward.... calipers, discs... straight bolt on.

The front you have to swap the spindle, disc and caliper. You have aluminum arms on that 86'NA so it should not be a problem.

A turbo tranny in an NA makes for one slow NA.
