To see thise engine go to http://www.streetrodstuff.com/Products/385/
I think it would be neat to Transplant that in a 924.

So anyway what would you have to do to fit that in a 924????

How exactly are you going to control this power? just wondering because if you arn't sure how to get the engine into the car than the rest of the driveline will be a compleate headache. I know this because I have measured and played with this thought on and off for a while, however I like to research the engine a lot before I go ahead. The V10 produces power slightly differently from the V8 and V6, the torque curve is more liek a sharp peak and than a flat graph, due to the amount of sparks to rotation and torque loading on the crank it will eat up anything but the most expensive transmissions, cryo treated 944 turbo trans will not cut it with this engine, you have to go the next step, along with drive shafts and also probably look into beefine up the TT. However everytime I think of a neat conversion the V10 always makes an appearence in my minds list.

I know that stuff. You would get a drivetrain that could sustain the the power. and a new transaxle that would also sustain the power.

Good luck, that motor weighs 650lbs, and is huge. It's twice as heavy as the 924 engine. It's a long engine, and wide, and you would have a hard time fitting exhaust manifolds to it. It is also outlandishly expensive.

As for the drivetrain, a 951 tranny and and torque tube would be very stressed under that kind of load.

yeah, and 450hp is ridiculously low for how much money that motor costs. Buy an LT1 or LS1 and supercharge/turbocharge it and get 500+hp.

mopar=mo money, mo parts, mo problems! do some research compare some chrysler parts to gm parts. and you would have to do a lot of cutting to fit that giant thing into anything, hence why the front of the viper is so long, and why they put it back in a truck. (and it was a truck engine to begin with.)also if you ever listen closely to a vipers exhaust note it sounds kinda funny, know why? cause it fires 2 cylinders simultaneousely on the power stroke. am i rambling on?..........sorry guys

As much as I like the Viper engine, I wouldn't use it, either. For Mopar power, I would use a 3G Hemi from the SRT line-up ... specifically, a 3G 426 Hemi crate engine from Arrington Performance, which has considerably more horsepower and torque than the Viper mill, but in a smaller and more convenient package.

I do love my Viper, but that engine in a 924/944 would be difficult and problematic. If such a engine are to be used you probably need a complete custom front end of the car to the firewall, and probably modify the firewall to get the engine nearer the coupe to get a good weight balace. And the clutch on that thing is very large, so would need to cut the transaxle well up too. Then will need to use a transaxle, cause the T56 is very large and it's not place for it other than in the back.. But it does not have a diff. To complete this I would have looked more into the original trans with upgraded internals from Audis motorsport division.

The Viper engine is not the same as found in a truck, as some have stated here above. And the tuning potential is great and easy to achieve. The forged motors will handle about 1000 hp pretty stock. Stock the power curve is very flat, with alot of pulling power already at 1200 rpm until about 5500 rpm. In the Viper I have run it on 25.5 US MPG.

I am suprised nobody have used Audi 5 cylinder engine more. Would be a better and easier fit with lots of potential
