any engine will fit any car if you're prepared to make it fit. The 924 engine wouldn't be one of the obvious choices for an engine conversion into a beetle. It's an inline 4 and would be very tall in the engine bay and probably get in the way of the decklid closing.

As for Porsche engine compatible with 1303's: the short answer is none of them. The longer answer would be that while the gearbox to engine bolt pattern might be the same in flat engined VWs and flat engined Porsches there's a lot more to the conversion than simply bolting it up. Read around these forums and do your homework before spending your cash on an engine
