Hi Bill I'm just starting on this project but any ideas from others would be great. ThanksOne of our club guys has a 944 in his GT40. I recall him saying it was quite tricky however the box itself is very strong with better ratios than an 016 Audi. I could find out a bit more if you are interested.
Other idiosyncrasies of the 944 transaxle would be that it did not have a bellhousing that would encompass many clutches along with flywheels and release bearings - Also a consideration might be the starter.Hard to do as that transmission is not designed to mount directly to an engine. There is no pilot bearing area on the input shaft and no provisions for mounting a throwout bearing. Essentially the same as Audi 016.
