The engine number is on the top front of the engine, on the horizontal surface of the block.

Thanks guys,

I found it but it gives me a bug and want to be validate.
this is the story.
I want to change my motor harness for my 1987 S4 manual, i got 2 parts possible.
928 607 002 14 for engine >> 81H00957 M28.41 et 81H07304 M28.42
or
928 607 002 15 for engine 81H00958 M28.41 et 81H07305 M28.42 >>

that's why i'm looking to my engine number who's M28 / 42 and 81H06906.
But this number seems to be for a auto transmission.
Can someone confirm it's a number for a auto transmission ?

Can someone check for my VIN : WP0JB092XHS861477 en validate if this number is for auto ou manual transmission ?

Thanks.

M41 is five-speed, M42 is automatic.

Perhaps your engine has been changed at some point.

I don't believe that there is a code in the VIN to tell you that, but Porsche has the original manufacturing data by VIN. There used to be a Russian site that had those records - no idea if they are still on the web.

Here is a site that gives the info shown by the VIN:
stuttcars.com/technical/vin-decoder/

There should be a build sticker under the carpet in the hatch area that gives the option codes for the car. The option code for automatic transmission is 249.

Earlier versions of PET (the Porsche parts list) had the car options by VIN, but that has apparently gone away.

Proton,

Both engine harnesses are compatible with either a manual or auto transmission. You can determine which harness you need from your engine serial number. The serial number is stamped just below M28.xx ..

One example would be 81H00957. If that were the serial number, then you would need engine harness # 92860700214

Tell me what your engine serial number is. :)

As far as PET goes, it says your VIN has auto trans. Engine M28.42 and trans A28.12. Also LSD.
