Hello everyone!
It's my first post on here after browsing a bit, so I figured I should come out of hiding. So, recently, I took an interest in street baja bugs, the look has me hooked lol. I want to get a vw bug as a project and was thinking of doing a swap to use up a bunch of parts I have laying around. It would require a lot of work, cause it's not a normal swap I see on numerous threads and baja bug websites.
I have a 1972 Porsche 914 with a non running engine (rusted out) but the rest of the car is in ok condition. Aside from that, I also have a 1984 944 that has an engine in very good shape, but the rest of the car needs more parts then it's worth putting the money into.
My question is, is it possible to take the 944 engine and mount it in a baja bug? I don't know much about these Porsches, but the parts are way too tempting to use in a baja to let them sit there and rot. What parts would I need to pull to use? What other parts would I need on the side?
I know it's not gonna be easy, but I want to know what to keep in consideration to do it for real. Keep the jokes and disapproval replies down Laughing

The 5 speed trans would be extremely nice on the HIway.
My guess would be an exteme mod with the 14 it being a mid-engine.
Id sell and go VOLKS all the way!!!

You can mount just about any engine in a Baja Bug. You will need an adapter plate. Check Hecker Machine to see if he makes one or can make one. The rest is fabrication work to mount and support the engine, cooling system etc. If you part the 944, let me know as I have a couple and could always use more parts.
