Default Compatible swap? 84 - 87

I am looking to buy a new transaxle for my 1987 944 NA. Am I able to swap it out for an earlier model TA? What about an S model?

Thanks for any help! These forums are great and have been referencing it for years, and will be for years to come!

84 won't have the speedometer sender. You would need one from a 85.5 or later. 944s would have different gearing but would work.
A turbo would have higher gearing, I'd avoid a turbo transmission but it would fit.
Plyhammer should have one for about $250-$300, should be a day trip from Milwaukee.
There's a guy in Minneapolis who will be parting a 85.5 soon, I could get it to La Crosse if you want to pick it up at my place.
