1988 944 Engine replacement


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944; Year: 1988; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 145,000;

I recently blew the engine on my 1988 944 non-turbo with something shooting through my oil pan. My assumption is that I have to completely replace the motor, which is probably the least expensive thing to do. I am planning on using the car for stock class club racing next year so I would like to prevent this from happening again. My question is what year engines can I use as a replacement for mine. I have the opportunity to get an engine out of an earlier year 944 but I am not sure of its compatibility. I would like to use some of the bolt on parts from my current engine and I already have a replacement water pump, timing & balance shaft belts, seals etc. for an '88 motor. Also the harnesses are a concern of mine and making sure they do not require new wiring. If you could please let me know what years I could use as a replacement it would be appreciated.
