Default My 940: the full retard

I continue to want to put a build thread on here but I continue to not do it....not anymore!

I have a 1992 940 turbo that I bought for $1500. I’m calling it the full retard because I’m on a EL-P kick lately and I feel like the name fits with my breakdowns at mountain meet and elsewhere. I’m building this to be a autocross/rallycross/weekend toy. It’s been a lot of fun.

71-EC03-DA-2-C0-C-4-A2-C-A3-C6-9-DAC00-A36-D5-F

What I’ve done so far:

Innovate Motorsports electronic boost gage/wideband air/fuel
Ipd turbo cam and cam gear
BC Racing coilovers
Bitchin turbobricks sticker

F17-A1974-DB4-F-4-E70-8-A53-FC0-A9-A0-B9502

E13726-AD-3-FC6-4927-A460-4-D78-F1-CC2-A4-B


What I’m about to do:
Mustang T-5 swap with a STS machining lightweight flywheel and a stage 2 clutch from yoshifab.

Me doing the tailhousing swap from a gen 4 3.8L camaro this moves the shifter 1 inch further up than the m46, I’ll see if I make any shifter modifications once I get it in. I’m considering doing a how to write up on it when I’m done, considering I haven’t seen one.







This is the video I watched to figure the tailhousing swap

And today I put the clutch pedal assembly in:

New:

The next step will be put it upon jacks and get the slush box out!

Where in South Carolina are you? Happy to see another turbobricker around here. You'll enjoy your 9 series so much more with a third pedal. I know I do. What plans for a turbo?

So, I've got the slush box out, and have put in the t5, I got a few pictures of how I went about mounting the transmission mount

IMG-0407
IMG-0410
I put a laser level under it, took the mount off marked and drilled a pilot hole with a quarter inch bit. I kept the drill at a 90 angle with the trans brace (which is at a bit of an angle it's self)
IMG-0409
Then I put it in and braced it up.
IMG-0411
I apologize for the lack of pictures, but I get roped into the project and always forget to post them. Ive now got to take the trans back out, run the lines for the hydraulic handbrake, and put in flywheel, clutch, etc. I've also been modding the shifter because it's still a bit forward. Also for my winter project, I've got a 16t out of a c70 so I'll be installing that as well.

More to come later.

Will be doing this to my 95 940 in the summer. Got lucky on a Nissan T5 which puts the shifter an inch further back from the GM tailhousing, the tailhousing still swaps to the mustang gearbox but without the 17 degree tilted mount, and uses the more common mustang type shifter.

I didn’t realize that, it would have been a pain the ass to find though I’m sure.

On a side note I do appreciate the love from all the SC TB-ers.

Is the shifter as shown in your pic, engaged in the forward position gears, or center position?

There is lately growing interest in the 7/9 conversions to T5 manuals; you would serve the TB community by showing pics of your tailhousing for the T5.... as well as any shifter offsetting to obtain function.

Whose T5 adapter to the BH, did you use the BNE (Kaplhenke) or other homebrew?

It’s in the neutral position. I’ve since bent it and welded it back together, I’ve still got a little bit of modifying to do to it. There’s a fair amount of butchering going on, I’ll post some pics of the finished product.
