Does anyone know of any NON AUDI, VW, or PORSCHE...

...engines that will fit into the Porsche 924.

When i say that I mean taking there Engine and Tranny but matching it up to the driveshaft.

More importantly will a Nissan SR20DET match up to the Porsche?

I'm wanting to take and place a 250HP engine into my 924.

I know I'm ruining it, but I'm going to be using it for Racing (legal) and need the added power over the Stock Porsche.

Thanks

This would be a good question for the Engine Transplant forum located to your bottom left when entering the Index area.

and Please keep your hands and feet inside the .org when it is in motion.

But to give you one option...I have seen a Vortec V-6 used. Not sure on the specifics but that is an option.

Matter of fact this is already being covered I believe...http://www.924board.org/viewtopic.php?t=12763&sid=55e78fe16fb6acfd2f811cdfa6360134

Forgive me if I am wrong, but I don't frequent the idea of swapping as much as I do improving the engine that belongs in these cars.

well i for one do not settle for 130 HP.

I respect the discission to keep the stock, and for any other use Iwould.
But when i need about 250 horses I'm calling on something else.

The Nissan SR20DET is a sturdy engine known to hold up for long periods of time and produce big numbers.

That's what I am needing.

No one was questioning your decision to swap an engine.

I just pointed you to the proper forum for Engine Transplants. I don't read the posts there myself so I don't really know what they cover.

As for 250 hp, no not from a stock 924, but it is possible to extract it from the engine. 375 is possible from the same displacement, but costs oodles of money to get there.

I say go on with your transplant, have a blast.

Just a suggestion; you might be better off sticking with the original engine. As I understand it, engine swaps in these cars are not easy or straightforward and are therefore quite expensive -unless you can do the fabrication and fitting work yourself, of course, and have access to all the parts you'll need. If you have the means to do this work essentially for free, or very inexpensively, and the parts are already available to you, it may well be worth a shot. Go for it

If not, however, you may be best advised to stick with the current engine and try to get max power out of it.

No need to keep it stock! It's seems to be common belief that you can't get 250hp from these engines. That may be so, but you can certainly, easily (compared to an engine swap) get much more than 130hp out of them.
Someone has recently posted about completing a prototype supercharger kit for them!
People here have proven methods, parts and supplier inventories and general know-how regarding power and performance increases. Spend some time discussing you thoughts here, and exhaust all other options before diving into an engine swap would be my advice. Could save you time and big bucks...

Hell, it'd surely be easier to convert it to a turbo (250hp+ potential) than to do an engine swap... for that matter, dump the 924 NA and get a 924 Turbo and go to work on that!!!

Saving weight is another area that can vastly improve performance, and it's another area that people on the 'board here are very experienced with

Superchargers...

Hi-po head...

There's heaps of other threads about this stuff

Have you checked out Chris's 931 for sale on the "Cars and Parts for sale" section? You could get into a nice 931 for cheap. Then you'd be on your way to a conversion kit and you could build the engine to maybe get closer to your goal without the swap.
