Another VAG diesel that is available in the USA & bolts to the 924 BH is the Audi/Volvo D24T, the turbo inline 6 2.4L version of the 2.0L 5cylinder. It was optional in 83-86 volvo 740/760 cars. ...

I like the long rear bars. Provides some protection for the stock fuel tank (think Pinto).
Also a good point.

Wasn't the 924 built by Audi employees in the Audi factory at Neckarsulm?

And then production was eventually moved to the porsche factory at weissach sometime in the 944 years?

Cage bends & welds all look good.

Looks nice!

2 dumb questions:
Is there a rear tow point?

What is the dangly yellow bit at pass rear bumper corner?

Yes, the engine is bolted onto the bellhousing right now, no need for an adaptor plate

The clutch is not operational yet. Here is how it looks.

The intake from a B5 passat/A4 might be a bolt-in fit, since they are mounted longitudinal and have to clear the similar brake booster.

The pictured engine is VW 4cyl, which is completely different from either the Audi or Porsce 4cyls used in the 924. The bellhousing and starter monting are particularly what makes putting any VW engi ...

AFAIK, the 78-earlier cars use an Audi 4speed transaxle.
The 79-80 5spd in a 931 is the Porsche snail type.

The snail uses a very different mounting arrangement. To fit it in a 76 body will requ ...
