    Engine number posted is part of the chassis number not an actual engine number. The chassis number appears right for a MY81 turbo. Any more info, images, specs? Hard to give any more feedback on just a chassis number.... its very hard, but not impossible to replicate a turbo from just a 924NA. Its not a case of just adding engine parts.

    One thing that can be very confusing is the difference between Series 1 and Series 2 turbos. Some differences in registration dates, previous owner or garage maintenance can blend the two series into one car making it confusing trying to work out what you exactly have. Despite internet and bar room myth, neither series is better nor worse than the other. Some S1 parts are ‘better’, some S2 parts are ‘better’. Some are exactly the same. On 924OC forum I have posted a thread trying to give as much info on the series differences.
     
    A good source of info regarding paint and interior colours per MY is here - http://www.werk924.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=48&Itemid=63

    OK I think I may have found the car of interest. It is a Series 2. Some very good pros on its colour, interior and wheels, a few watch outs on condition and recommissioning. I think its worth is at the lower end of its guide price as you may need some cash in the wallet for more tasks to bring it up to its full potential.
     
    Get it started. Make sure it runs and idles smoothly and revs cleanly. Ask about recommissioning of engine, they mention only brakes. If nothing has been done in its last 8yrs storage it needs immediate work on at least replacing its cam belt, fuel system etc. Compression check. Does it boost? Check for any exhaust leaks around the manifold, turbo and exhaust. There’s many more comments I could make. Good luck.
