I'm finding conflicting Wikipedia information... the page for the 924 says it was the same engine as the Gremlin, but the page for the VW EA 4-cylinder engine states the 924 engine had a different bore/stroke and had different origins.

Though, the latter is worded VERY strangely, and its "source" webpage no longer works... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volks...80%93115_hp_2.0

#1, *Puts on AMC fanboy hat*

Both the Porsche 924 and the 1977-1978 4 cylinder Gremlins used the same 2.0 liter "Audi 100" engine block, with the same 3.41/3.32 bore/stroke combination. The AMC engine was assembled by AMC, however, and built to different standards. Most notably, it was carburated, whereas the 924 (and AFAIK, every other car that used the Audi 100) was fuel injected. AMC was one of the few manufacturers at the time still using breaker points, whereas all of the other vehicles with that engine used electronic ignitions.

These changes were enough to make 80 horsepower in the Gremlin, compared to 95 horsepower of an equivalent year 924. The fact that a fuel injected 924 engine could be bolted right into a Gremmie isn't lost on me. How about a Series 2 924 turbo engine, with 177 horsepower? >:D
