The VW/Audi 1.8 turbo swap has been done here a couple times in the past and that is a swap I plan on doing this winter. While doing research I have found 3 transplants that are in progress right now.

The first two are both real close to being completed and are both making steady progress.

The first one can be found here:

This guy is in jolly old England and is building a track car from a stock 924S.
This guy is real methodical and goes into a lot of detail. He can kinda drags things out a bit but he has a slow steady approach where he wants to get things right the first time.

2nd is a young guy not too far from me doing the swap on a 944. This guy has had a real learning curve and has made a few mistakes (haven't we all) but he's learning as he goes. He just fired his up for the first time but the rest of the car has a ways to go still. Check hi out here:

The 3rd swap going on is by a gent in upstate New York by the name of Van Svenson. Another 944 track car but he isn't as far along as the other two but this guy knows his stuff!!!!! Check him out here:

There is another swap on you tube channel called Half Ass garage and man is it ever. I won't even link them!

I just thought I would just throw this out there for to give these guys fa few more views on their channel and to help anyone else interested in this swap.
Cheers!

Thanks for sharing! In addition to his 1.8T swap, Van has one of the best video explanations and walkthroughs of a transaxle Porsche rear suspension. His detail is excellent!

Cant really understand why so many people go for the 1.8, its not a very charismatic engine, most of them have run thousands of miles and have pretty skinny rods if i remember it correctly, ands its alot of job to make it fit in there. But its always interesting to see builds
