I believe AUTOCHECK will work with a pre 17 digit VIN if you put ZERO in the preceding digits. I have an Autocheck report for my 79 that goes back to the early 90's

Thank you! It's been a lot of fun so far for sure. One nice thing about the car is that with the exception of the aftermarket steering wheel and dash cap, everything else is untouched. Paint is...

Good question. The 85.5 is an oval dash car so the harness enters the passenger side and integrates with the dash harness using a 14 pin plug. Also, no oil level sender on the 85.5. The 87 924s uses...

Here is the parts car. Obviously, I would have to see out some unique items to the 87 such as DME harness and timing covers. Of course, I sold the AFM off this car long ago so I needed to hunt down...

Fearing the worse, I stripped down the timing and balance belts and installed a timing belt temporarily and turned the motor over by hand. An eighth of a turn later I was contacting a valve. I...

87 924s Fire Victim Recommissioning

So I am a sucker for a lost cause. This is not a first for me.

Back in March, I picked up this 87 924s that had an engine fire. Not 100 percent sure why, maybe it was because I had just sold my 83...

Interesting......I believe the knock sensor is TURBO only, since this is a 924s, it uses the early harness that enters on the driver (left side). I believe all the turbo harnesses are the newer...

Good possibility. It was advertised as an 84 harness which it most certainly is not but beyond that, I have no info.

My existing harness is burnt at the injectors. Looks like 84 and early 85 944 are very similar. After that they eliminated the flat 8 pin plug for the gauges and went to the 14 pin plug to join the...

87 924s DME harness Wanted

Hello All,

I need a DME harness for a 87 924s. I believe an 84 or early 85 harness may also work but not 100 percent sure. Let me know if anyone has something available.

Thanks!
