924 transaxle search

I am still looking for a trans for my buddy. I have had many offers for later models, but we really need a direct bolt up swap, as time and knowledge are limited (I can never get enough of either!).

If you have a 924 tranny (shorter gears) please let me know if you are willing to sell and ship it. Thank you.

the 79 used the 016Z or dogleg transmission, where reverse is where first normally is. befor that it was only a 4 speed. after 79 they went to the regular 5-speed snailshell and its roughly the same as in an early 944

I have 3 different 924 trannies. None are the snail body though. Let me know the code on the tranny that you need, and I will see what I have.

snail bodies

Todd,

What are snail bodies, non-turbo? Are they taller gears? How do they compare to 944ns's of the same year?

My buddy has an "83", 5-speed NA car. He is trying to get shorter gears for a little extra power.

Thanks.

Snailshells are completely not interchangeable (to a 944). You might as well try fitting a 911 trans. Just so that's clear. They were used in the '79 NA and '80 931.

944 tranny won't work either. The input shaft on the 924 tranny is smaller than 944.

...unless he's talking about a 924S. Need to specify...

Oh, yeah, and 944 trannys can be adapted to fit. Just have to change out more parts, and of course the ratios aren't exactly favorable, but...

Or a 924 Turbo, it'd bolt right in...

Vaughan, my learning curve re trannies is now a steep one since that Euro needs work in this area. I'm wondering about maybe building a Franken-tranny by bolting the gear box from the 924 onto the diff from the 931. Lemme guess - I'd have to adjust the R&P clearance.

I thougt the 931 trannies had the larger input shaft, like the 944.

I have a very clean 1982 924 turbo 5 speed transaxle QM code stamped on top which has 134K miles and was pulled a few months ago out of a parted car! It is pretty mush the same as an early 944 transaxle as far as bolt up is concerned and will only fir in the 1981 & 1982 924's as far as I know!

$200 plus shipping
