I am in Salem, Oregon. I'm interested in acquiring 924 Turbo torque tube and shift linkage.

Contact me via email address:

Hi Paul, welcome to the Board.

Is this for an S1 or S2 car ?

Hi Lee,

Well, it is for a 88 944S that I have a snailshell for.

You do realize that the block is not the same for the front and neither is the torsion bar carrier right ? The snailshell mounts to two arms protruding rearward from torsion bar carrier itself. Only the S1 924 turbos have these arms....

Yes, I was planning on fabricating & welding gearbox mounts to torsion tube once everything was in place.

Can you elaborate on what you mean by "block"?

Well i used a 944S2 drive train on a 931 engine and it worked, should work the other way around as well, meaning 931 TT and gearbox on a 944 bellhousing and clutch.
Still, no idea why you’d want a snailshell on an S...the Audi boxes are much more refined and modern feeling, just like the S is compared to the 931.
The snailshell makes sense in an iron brute machine like the 931 but not in a modern car like the 924S.

I like dogleg boxes, had three SWB 911s (one for 38 years) and a 911 SC. I prefer the shift pattern. Also, the snailshell is Porsche design and is a lighter, more compact design with gearbox ahead of rear axle. The Audi box is a "parts bin" selection, designed for front wheel drive car and places gearbox behind the axle in the 944.

My 944S is mostly unrefined now with the only remaining power accessory being the sunroof. Power steering, air conditioner, power brakes, cruise control, power windows, power door locks, center console, impact-resistant bumpers, pop-up headlights, power mirrors, power seats and rear seats are gone and more to go away. Also, I am nearly finished with designing a carburetor setup to replace Motronic. Clearly, I like unrefined.

I agree on the dogleg. I raced an early 911 with dogleg and a later one without. I also raced a 82 924 with Audi box and now a '79 dogleg 924. MUCH prefer the dogleg pattern on the track.

In that case, yes it makes all the sense to use the snailshell.
I know the audi box is crap, my higher boosted 931 mashed a 944 box under load going up on a bridge.
Good luck finding the parts.

Thanks for the encouragement on finding a driveshaft!

Cheers, Paul

Well, thanks to all who looked/responded to this request. I have found a solution to my problem and no longer seek a 931 torque tube.

I am curious to what you came up with.

If you need to unload that G31, I would be interested. I am in Hillsboro.

Well, the plan is unique and I expect funny responses.

The plan is to use a 944 torque tube assembly and shorten the driveshaft and torque tube to interface with the 931. Use a 931 coupler and bore the forward end to receive the 944 driveshaft and silver solder the coupler to the shaft.

Bodge, dont do it. Will vibrate and destroy the input bearing and seal of the gearbox and maybe the bearings in the torque tube.
Just get a 931 torque tube, there are plenty of 931 being parted in the US.
