924 Transmission swaps

Can anyone tell me if a 4 speed from an early 924 could be replaced by a 5 speed taken from a Audi 4000 or VW Quantum?
I want to build a VW turbo diesel powered 924 commuter and my '85 Quantum donormoblie has an excelent 5sp box in it that I would like to use.
$2.10 per gallon makes it time for Rudolf and Ferdinand to get acquainted in something other than a tractor

No, the trans is not suitable for the 924. The effort, time and money involved in converting the 924 to a diesel power is simply not worth it.

I think you forgot to say "In my humble opinion".

And I'm going to do it anyway, and you can't stop me
