    Distributor that works with TWM/Borla 8-stack

    OK - to be very specific - if someone has a MSD 8579 installed I would be very thankful if you can measure the height of it from where it goes down the block and up to the top with cables installed. Thanks Henrik

    Distributor that works with TWM/Borla 8-stack

    Thanks Tom I did see that but what makes me suspicious towards MSD is that the stated the 8579 and 8479 to be 7 1/16 inch high and that the 84791 should be the same with the difference that it has a steel gear. I have now got it from MSD and it measures from block to top almost 8.3 inch! I...

    Hi Erik, Thanks for your support available. I also found out here locally that it is not big thing to convert it to RWD. However the whole gearbox has to be dismantled to modify the lubrication. We will see which path I will take concerning changing gearbox - Porsche vs. Audi. Regards Henrik

    Help Please 930 Hydraulic conversion

    One of the real benefits with flipping the transaxle is that you get a lower mounting position of the engine = better handling. You also get better angles on the driveshafts. So my advice is do not flip the crownwheel -flip the box. In my 915 box I have a gallon which gave a good oil level. I...
