88 motor into an 86 944

is this a basic swap? will the tranny for the 86 work with no problems? are these engines different at all?

88 into an 86

The 88 engine is a direct bolt in. The only Difference is the 88 has higher compression and a 32 bit DME making 160 horsepower compared to 143 horsepower. It will bolt right in.

Higher compression means the engine most likely has a knock sensor like the turbos and the 16 valve 944S engines. Then yes you need the DME and the harness. Now you may be able to use the 86 DME IF you can find someone that can re-chip it for your car.

Throttle body is probably a stock one that was bored to a larger diameter. Expensive.
