Any issues using that 984 bin on the early boxes like the 939's? I think I have a 954 laying around as well. Also, what about the immobilizer in the 984, is that disabled in this latest XDF?

Yes, in the car now. It does use an M45/46 bellhousing instead of the M40/41 bellhousing, had to make a spacer to run the 140 style clutch cable, but that's it.
