Engine swap: '84 into '87?


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944, 944; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 134,000;

I have an '84 944 engine that I am interested in putting into an '87 944. Is it possible? If so, what are the problem areas? The owner of the '87 944 said this of his engine: "I was told that something got caught in the crankshaft and ripped it up pretty bad, that is the major problem, the crankshaft needs either replaced or resurfaced. It may have also damaged the waterpump, timing belt, and other smaller components."
