944 Turbo with a Coyote?

I致e been doing A LOT of reading. I知 picking up my chassis in January and I知 planning my build.

Right now I知 thinking coyote engine but I知 not 100%. I知 researching what transaxle to use and the consensus is an Audi, Porsche or ZF.

ZF痴 are too expensive and the Audi 016痴 are scarce. I read somewhere that a 944 turbo transmission is a good option.

Does anyone know if that would match up to a coyote engine? I believe these transaxles are hydraulic also which is what I want.

Any thoughts?

Re: 944 Turbo with a Coyote?

Because I知 still learning, I wonder if the number that is stamped on the 944 Turbo is the same as the Audi 016. I wonder if Porsche and Audi got their trans from the same distributor?

Call scott dewitt at advanced automotion. He will build a audi 01e that will handle 500 hp.. Mine handles 470 hp just fine... A good product from a good man.

Re: 944 Turbo with a Coyote?

The 944 transmission will not bolt up as it has no provisions for a pilot bearing or throwout bearing in the transmission. I would recommend the Boxster S 6-speed. They are getting very affordable and can handle up to 500 HP.

Will the 5 speed work or only the 6 speed.

Re: 944 Turbo with a Coyote?

The 5 -speed is rather weak. The 6-speed is much better.

I have to assume that the Audi 5 speed is stronger?

Re: 944 Turbo with a Coyote?

I just found out that the chassis I’m buying is designed for a Porsche 996 or 997 trans.

Re: 944 Turbo with a Coyote?

The 996 is almost identical to the Boxster 6-speed except it is a rear engine rather than mid-engine design. It must be run upside down and is mounted on the end like a G50 rather than from the side of the housing like the Boxster is.
