Yeah, I don't think this is going to be a big deal. I just haven't devoted hardly any attention to it yet due to other priorities (bellhousing, intake manifold, oil pan, etc.).

dont remember if it was discussed previously but what about a fab'd oil pan?

there's a guy local to me and on here somewhere putting an old Audi 4.2 into his 924.
lots of cutting of metal to make it fit, but he actually fabbed up an oil pan out of ~20 gauge steel, easy to bend and weld, and then he's making a sort of "lay over" flange for sealing.

07k has "structural pan" but that's usually for engine-trans assembly rigidity rather than any kind of block reinforcement.

The pics at the bottom of the page show a machined oil pan flange made by Iroz Motorsport. Iroz is not interested in selling these pieces anymore (I inquired many times).

I'm pretty sure using the stock casting as the base for a fabricated pan will work well, and will be much more cost effective than making an entire pan from scratch. So, that's the route I'm still heading down. After the intake manifold design is released, oil pan is next on my to do list.

iAbed is looking into a complete machined and fabricated pan solution for Audi 07K applications. It may be possible to adapt it for 944 use. I think it will be more expensive than modifying the stock pan, but you never know until it's done.

As with everything else on this swap... there are many ways to skin a cat. I'm just trying to pick one of the good ways.

Yeah, I'm not sure I have much faith in that pan after seeing a few of the first pictures...

Anyone have a way to look up mileage on this '08 Jetta VIN 3vwrm71k98m077489. I'm looking at buying the 07K engine out of it from a salvage yard. They say the car had 25k miles... hoping its not too good to be true!

Was thinking this morning about the ecu situation... might be a worthy experiment to buy a cheap 2.5 vw car and cut the canbus harness one circuit at A time to see what isn't needed lol

The ECU will function by itself , you just have to get around the immobilizer . I could not justify spending the money for the necessary software to be able to interface with the factory ECU . It is also rather expensive to have it done by a shop . For me being a 12volt guy for a living and I already have background in standalone , I can’t justify the cost of using the factory stuff . The older 1.8t and 2.7tt engines use ME7.1 or ME7.5 for management . There are plenty of places that deal with these . The 07k ( at least the 2010 I have ) uses ME13.5 . It is not supported by any of the former software packages and most places don’t even was to mess with it .

How much are you paying as a point of reference?

I can`t say what he paid , but I got mine from my local pick n pull for a little over $100 . Higher mileage ( 180k ) but it was clean and I even found a ton of records in the glove box . I will build a new engine once all the details are worked out and it is time to turn up the boost .

My donor car was around $500+tools to rip the engine out, right around 90k. I was able to get the wiring harness, the exhaust manifold, and AC lines, just in case.
