You are wanting to swap in a Volvo engine orignally designed as a six cylinder by Porsche for Volvo to use as a modular engine design. I hope it works out for you. I like the idea. Sorry don't have any helpful suggestions.

If you would go diesel, this is sitting next to my L33 engine in the warehouse at work, 2 stroke supercharged and turbocharged Detroit Diesel 4-71 would be interesting

I would think the block height/length and the fact that the T5 has a very beefy but un-movable lower block skirt might make it hard to fit tilted over. Too bad that swede guy hasn't posted a pic of the engine in the bay. Presumably he fit it in? The engine bay on 944 is seriously tight... they are like the anti-brick...

I've got a 87 944s and looked into doing the swap several years ago. Plan on buying the 960 oil pan to cut up and a 2in cowl hood, custom exhaust, low to no vac for brakes, custom low profile bell housing and pilot bearing, motor mounts, just as a start.

It can definitely be done but once you start putting a price to your time, you get a kind of sinking feeling. That's even before adding the real money in.
I'd spend some time looking for a wrecked 968 doner car. Then you could have the 3.0 and a 6 speed.

Op as a fellow Porsche guy I wish you well in your endeavor, but some things are bound for Craigslist

Default Volvo t5 engine swap

I now have all the parts I need for the swap and pulled the engine out of the donar car and have it slotted into the 944 engine bay.
I have a complete car minus the engine if anyone needs any parts (UK)

Also single mass flywheel which models came with those they all seem to be dual mass?

Have you seen the http://www.motorwerksracing.com/pors...rsion-18t-swap website?

The Audi 1.8T seems like a natural swap. That being said in this months Panamera there is a 968 that need a motor...rate color car as well.
