Only small cut/grind needed to the mount for the front turbo with T6 stuff if that's what you mean. Water pipe on the side of the block has to be modified. I did it with RWD and T6 pipes.

Only tranny and clutch can be used. Flywheel can be swapped from any car with LH2.4. For a direct fit you'll need everything else from a 240, including transmission linkage.

In that case T6 injectors and depending on things 0.5-1bar more fuel pressure works with E85. Cold starts might need a couple short cranks after adaptation sets.
