Let’s see your babies, 914’s only please!
We really don’t care what kind of POS water-cooled you drive. Unless it’s a 914 V-8 conversion of course!

Sorry our pic is a bit crappy.

Here's my /6:

Here's my car in its current form (gutted, caged, 5-lug, big-four). It will hit the track for the first time on 1/5...woohoo! smile.gif

Posted by: Mark Henry Dec 27 2002, 11:29 PM

Ginter

They are Empi sprint stars made for bugs. They are a steel rim, 5.5 inches, made in Germany. I have never seen them with this off set, but they fit the 914 perfectly. They came on the car when I bought it. The local P-guy Mike Galloway couldn’t believe how well they fit. The tires are 185/70-15

You see rusty sets on thesamba.com and evil-bay, but they are mostly 4.5” and a lot of the 5.5” are a different offset. I’ve heard that you can still get the new in Europe, don’t know if that’s true or not. They came chromed or painted, these are painted. The center caps are hard to find, but the guy who makes the aluminum fuch’s cap also makes these. They are prone to rust if driven in the crud. I have 6 of the 4.5” rim, again wrong offset. If anyone wants to know the off set I will measure them, just email me.

'74 1.8....under 100K!!

Posted by: echocanyons Dec 28 2002, 01:03 PM

heres mine:

looks OK on the outside but it suffers from some pretty big rust issues(longs).

Hey Brad any luck on finding that rust free Alaskan Blue chassis??

Posted by: krk Dec 28 2002, 04:08 PM

Here she is. Note the matching cup. lol.

It's a 70 /6, under 100K as near as I can tell. Webers need some work and will be sent out once the rain stops around here...

Kim,

What size wheels are those? They look a little like 7"

Posted by: krk Dec 28 2002, 05:04 PM

I believe they are. Yeh, it's lame, but I've never had the wheels off. (the carbs have been stripped down to bitty parts three times, but if'n it don't run right, you don't fiddle with much else.) Oops. I lied. I did the wheel bearings and brakes in the front. Still never looked at the wheels. Lips are rolled front and back. The real reason I've not looked to hard at them is attached. I'm going CW on this car. I've got a set of 14"s and a set of gas burners. I just need to pick which ones...

kim.

Posted by: Gint Dec 28 2002, 05:09 PM

That's pretty funny actually Kim. I've had my carbs apart many times, paid to have them rebuilt, installed an MSD, and still have yet to remove any of my wheels yet either.

Posted by: Gint Dec 28 2002, 05:09 PM

Olav,

I've read of your car on other forums and seen your web pics. Nice.

Posted by: krk Dec 28 2002, 05:19 PM

It's just as nice in person! It's easily one of my favorite cars. I've seen it a couple of times now (at brad's place of course) and it is a really sharp one. It's like nearly the ideal -- 3.2 in a very clean car. Oh yeh.. Olav's a nice guy too :-)

lol. You can tell you have a /6:-) Who did your rebuilding? Did you have bushing/throttle shaft work done? Etc.

Posted by: Gint Dec 28 2002, 05:29 PM

OK, I'll tell you, but you can't gimme any shit.

Motor Meister

It didn't really need bushing work, but it wouldn't have hurt to have it done. In retrospect although MM did what they said they would and the carbs worked well when returned, I would have been happier if they had re-bushed them. I also had them re-choke them to 32. If the wait for Eurometric hadn't been so stinkin long, I would have sent the carbs to them.

Posted by: olav Dec 28 2002, 05:29 PM

Thanks for the kudos.

I just got some 16X6's from wheel enhancement I'm going to put on when it stops frig'n raining long enough.

Posted by: krk Dec 28 2002, 06:34 PM

Hey Mark Henry!

(btw, Great Thread for a new board!)

Is yours a 73 or 74? Do you see many others in the port hope area?

I'm ex-Toronto, so it's good to see 914's from Canada.

Mike,
a) me give you shit? Nah. Can't happen. That's Brad's role. lol. (it's good that he's away:-)
cool.gif Zois seems to have either had good luck with MM or knows folks who have had good luck with them (on carbs that is). He's mentioned it in other forums. And yeh, the eurometrix wait is pretty long. (I'm thinking that my car has been sitting long enough that I don't really have much room to whine about it... I could have sent them the carbs and they could have done them twice by now)
c) I'm prolly being dumb, but I don't understand what "rechoke to 32" means. If you offered clues, I'd take 'em.

Posted by: Mark Henry Dec 28 2002, 10:03 PM

G'day eh! Kim, where do you call home now?

I think I'm the only Porsche owner in the Port (of no) Hope! But I'm a half-hour from Oshawa, Ontario and would you beleive that there is two 914 shops there. My bud Mike Galloway run's Mikes 914 and there is Harmondy Road Porsche. Between the two there must be 100+ scrap 914's and a couple dozen project cars and several nice ones. There is quite a few 914 owners in Ontario.

My car is a '74 1.8 and it is originaly white, a PO had it painted the orange. Great pains were taken not to over-spray the trunks. They painted right around the folded edge of the lids and the jams were painted. A good job, but it was done in the 80's and I will repaint in a couple of years. I would repaint it white, but the wife loves the orange and to tell the truth so do I. The teen is almost totally rust free and was originally from BC.

The last owner bought it in 1986, and put 3000 miles on it, it had 74,000miles when we got it last summer. He was an old customer's uncle and they brought the car to me because they couldn't get it running. It had seized injectors and needed shocks etc. When I told the guy how much it was going to cost, he said it was for sale.
I didn't even think about buying it, the guy asked me to drive it for a week, before he put it up for sale. I told the wife to drive it and 'bam' she wanted it!

I picked it up for $4500 Canadian so, thats what, maybe $2700 US. What a deal!
It's a totally cool machine, we are both hooked on it! Who needs drugs, buy a 914 if you need a rush! We now both want more power, this year it gets a 2L d-jet, but I maybe looking for a six next winter. I was going to restore a set of 4 bolt fuch's, but I will run the empi's for one more year, while I think about a six.

Here is one of the herd. 75 1.8, 16x7 Fuchs, Konis,Turbo tie rods, Corbeau seats,Fun car.

Posted by: boxstr Dec 29 2002, 12:08 AM

This is my 74/ 6 2.4 w/Zenith carbs. Very well done conversion, paint was very poor. At the present time it is in the body shop completely stripped and ready for paint.

Posted by: krk Dec 29 2002, 12:38 AM

Marc: I now live in San Jose, as of '96. It's a pretty car friendly environment, outside of the rain that is currently pummeling us. Your initial driving experience mirrors mine. My first was a '73 2.0, and I was definitely had from "hello"!

Craig: Zeniths -- have you had to fiddle much with them to keep them in tune? Your "herd" looks really good though. Sounds like you have room to breed them....:-)

kim.

Posted by: boxstr Dec 29 2002, 08:49 AM

The Zeniths have not required any tinkering, I beleive the PO did enough of that and knew what he was doing to get them pretty well sorted out. I have added new plug wires,Magnecor,MSD box and coil,K&N watersheild filters.

Posted by: thesey914 Jan 2 2003, 04:20 AM

Boxstr, That is a fine looking yellow 914. (love the garage floor too). My 914 is in need of a repaint and as yellow is not the original colour I was contemplating changing it to Rav. green or Tangerine. Now after this fresh inspiration I think I will keep it yellow.
only picture i have embarrassingly

Posted by: olav Jan 2 2003, 03:34 PM

Brad,

The tires size is 205/55/16 the diameter of the tires is exactly the same as I had before which was 205/60/15. So the gearing is the same.

Patricia's father, Rich, liked the car and when he got back he told everyone that when I passed anyone I would just gear down and they were history.

He wasn't used to seeing the underside of other cars especially the SUV's.

He's a great guy.

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 2 2003, 03:35 PM

Look everybody. 7 inch rims under a narrow body car. Stop the insanity.

Yes. I'm being a smart-ass.

Car looks good. Yellow is my favorite color (first 914 was yellow)

B

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 2 2003, 03:41 PM

Just making sure Olav. I thought I had told you somewhere along the line that the 205/55/16's where the same rolling diamater as the original 165's that came on the car.

Thats cool he liked the car.

Bern..

You cant post a pic from your computer unless your running a webserver. You have to use the file attachement "feature" and hit browse..then find your pic and upload it to my server. I looked at the "path" for your pic.. http://d:/new%20folder/p000168.jpg and that pic was not in the clubs "upload" folder. Soo.. it must be on your computer..

Nope, you never mentioned it to me, I told John at Wheel Enhancement what I had on previously 205/60/15 and said I wanted the same diameter and they said 205/55/16 were the same and they are.

Here's a bigger picture with my new wheels:

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 2 2003, 09:26 PM

Rich Johnson was the first person who told me about the 205/55 16's having the same rolling diameter back in 92 or so. The 205/55's came on all the Mitsubishi Eclipses..makes for a very inexpensive tires when 100's of K's of cars came with them.

It looks great (as usual)

Posted by: mskala Jan 3 2003, 09:39 PM

I'd post my car but it's a waste of bandwidth, it looks just like Hawk's car. Just think of a different house behind it. Kim, the silver looks great; I'm partial to the signal orange, silver, dark green (w/tan int), or the adriatic I've got.

Posted by: krk Jan 3 2003, 10:17 PM

Mark: thx for the compliment! I love silver. But I have a story.
That pic was from a pca meet in SF. At that point, I'd never
been to one, so I thought I'd try it out. (decent folk, btw) We
did a drive up into the hills over to the ocean and hit a parking
lot. We were a billion silver and black cars. The look-at-me car
in the lot was a green 914. (revena (sp?) I think) At that
point, I was thinking that signal orange would have been
an excellent color.

(actually, I just found a pic - attached)

You otta post the pic's of your car. Even if the color is the same,
each has it's own look and we all like to oggle:-)

Ok, here's a picture of my car I bought two summers ago.

Car was just painted this April. The color is Palma Metallic, only used in '75. I wasn't thrilled with the color at first, but it grew on me. When it's sunny out, it really brightens up.

Things I'd like to do this winter would be....back date the exhaust system, clean up the engine compartment and remove the rest of the air injection tubing.

I bought this car from Craig Laughlin in Dec. It's still in Oregon, I can't wait to go get it!
It's been too snowy here to contemplate driving it 2600 miles.

Planning on picking it up at the end of the month and going to LA for a week before the trek east.

Posted by: seanery Jan 7 2003, 09:15 AM

Here is my 74, getting fitted for it's fresh 2.7. It looks rough, but it's a solid, rustfree car, no really it is!
It's got 16x6's now with a set of 951 fuchs 8's for the front and 9's for the rear when the flares are installed.
It has 944 turbo front brakes, boxster rears, koni yellows, jet-hot coated headers and a 2.7 with RS pistons,
S cams, ported heads & webers.

It's been a long project and I can't wait to finish!

Seanery, your quick six mount is made by who?
Also is your 2.7 150/160/175/210hp? How much extra hp do you expect from the S cams and RS pistons?

Posted by: Jeroen Jan 7 2003, 11:06 AM

Hey Olav,

Yep, that's more or less the goal (someday...)
On http://www.berloth.nl/914 you can also find pics of what it looked like when I got it

I should spend more time in my garage and less behind the 'puter
Then again, I can do this stuff between phonecalls biggrin.gif

Posted by: seanery Jan 7 2003, 01:36 PM

My mechanic made the mount. He does a lot of conversions.
I'm hoping to hit 210hp. I may be insane, but that is the # I'm hoping for.

When it get's dyno'd I'll pass the info along.

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 7 2003, 02:05 PM

Sean,

I'm not sure which direction your going to take to LA, but I would wait until the Dunkel brothers swap meet the first weekend of Feb. I know Craig is going and I'm taking at least 3-4 914 people with me for the event. If you drive through SF be sure to post it here. I'll organize a 914 dinner gathering for your visit. We normally get 20-30 people to show up for dinners and the such.

Been meaning to tell you guys. I can't make it this year. I wanted to, but we get back from Key West on Saturday, 2/1. I don't want to hop right back on a plane just for one day and then back again. Get pics for me eh?

Actually they are Texas lenses. I've heard that all the roads in TX are flat & straight and so there is no need for turn signals.

Ginter - It's yours, unless the guys at the shop need it for some reason (highly doubtful). I will pick it up in the next week or so and toss it in a box. What does your car have now?

YO JP -- I know you've told us upteen times, but who made those trick cleaner assy's you've got?

Posted by: Gint Jan 7 2003, 06:03 PM

I have K&N's.

Since mine is an orignal six, I'm quietly collecting stock parts that I never got with the car. Future resale value of the car you know. Case I (yeah, right) or anyone I ever sell it to wants to go CW.

I definitely plan to use ITG's, so you & Mueller can fight Ginter for that stock airbox. He has first dibs though

Posted by: Mueller Jan 7 2003, 11:44 PM

Ginter doesn't need the air cleaner smile.gif

What do these things sell for? I've never really priced stock six parts......will a 911 assembly work?

Mueller

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 7 2003, 11:48 PM

I searched for over an hour today at HPH for a crossbar and air cleaner. It appears the early 911 air cleaner will work... but I dont know if it is correct or not.

Posted by: olav Jan 8 2003, 12:18 AM

Brad,

I read that the 911 air cleaner is a little taller and is a little to large for the 914/6 engine bay.

I have an extra air cleaner assy if you want it.


Olav

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 8 2003, 12:20 AM

I thought they where different.. thanks Olav. I dont want you to seperate anything from your stock engine (within reason) The air cleaner is a big deal. I'll find one.

Posted by: campbellcj Jan 8 2003, 12:45 AM

FWIW my engine is a factory -6. Type 901/38 (correct 914/6), engine # 6405632. Therefore I figure the air cleaner rig should fit...

Another /6 lives around the corner from me, I'll ask him if he still has his original air-cleaner....I know he is running the seperate air filters right now and has been for many years (this is the first original /6 I ever drove smile.gif )

17 mile drive in Monterey. It's where Pebble Beach is located. We had a guy in the group Ken Schipper (sp?) that lives there, so the whole pack of 914's got in as "visitors" and didn't have to pay the toll. boldblue.gif

Side note.. It only *looks* like good topless weather. It's overcast as all hell there. I think I was wearing a sweatshirt and had a jacket draped over my legs. The heater didn't even help!

It is a lot of work. Nothing that hasn't been done before; a combination of buying too big of a project followed by a severe case of "while yer in there" disease. At least I'm getting to try a lot of new products and techniques for removing and refinishing things.

the wheels on #92 look like ATS wheels to me...

Jeroen

Posted by: HotRod Jan 14 2003, 02:27 PM

Seanery,

Yes he's correct, they are ATS...they were an offset that allowed me to use 205s under the stock fenders. I even used them for awhile with 9 inch slicks and only had to roll the fender a little bit ...but the clearance between the front strut and the inside of the cantilevered tire was TIGHT.

Posted by: HotRod Jan 14 2003, 02:31 PM

You're right, they do look like Campognolo replicas , my buddy has a Pantera with the Campies on it and you couldn't trell the difference at first glance.

Posted by: Gint Jan 14 2003, 03:42 PM

Very nice.

You can have a lift for as little as $3500

Posted by: seanery Jan 14 2003, 11:15 PM

Go to the closest Goodguys Hot Rods show.

They have vendors selling 2 and 4 post lifts.
$2100 can get a 2 post and $2500 for a 4 post.

I saw at least 4 vendors at both Indy and Del Mar that had very similar pricing.

Posted by: campbellcj Jan 14 2003, 11:40 PM

Nice...I need to add that to "the list". Not real high up, but "someday".

I realized recently that some jobs on the car are just WAY easier with a lift. Maybe I'm getting old, but laying on the concrete with oil/gas/brake fluid dripping on me has gotten fairly painful and unpleasant.

But what kind of garage (ceiling) height do you need for these puppies? My garage is a built-in deal, 1st floor of a 2 story house, and not terribly tall.

I think the next house needs a fully detached, 4 car setup with its own john, a/c and heat, etc.

Wow Jeffs74~914 ohmy.gif
What kind of damage was done to you in that collision? Did you have a spare tire in front to help w/ the crumple? I'm curious because I am doing a 5-bolt conversion and I am trying to figure out what to do for a spare, or if I should just do w/o one (and with a can of tire goo and a AAA card biggrin.gif ) Glad to see the passenger area isn't that bad, and you are still here to post that pic!

Nathan

Posted by: Jeffs9146 Jan 15 2003, 11:19 PM

Yea Nathan, I am glad to still be around!

The spare tire saved my life!! I broke my neck, back, nose and jaw! I was bleading internaly and almost didn't make it! My friend (in the passenger seat) didn't brake anything but was cut from his chin to the top of his head and from his shin to above his knee.

Keep the spare!!!!

I trust my 914 as long as it doesn't roll!!

Jeff

Here is a pic from the front with the spare and the front hood saving me!

Posted by: Bleyseng Jan 15 2003, 11:35 PM

For a spare pick up a space saver spare from the junkyards about $75-100. Also look for a little air compressor that goes with em so you can inflate it if you have a flat. The 916's had this first and it makes for alot more room in the front trunk.
Here is a picture of the tire standing upright, although I still have mine laying down.

I'd love to find a space-saver spare...I have no idea where to start looking though. I need a 16" one though (to fit over the brakes). Maybe i'll post a want add...I guess I could always get a full size one like my other 4 (16x6) and keep it inflated. Thanks for the advice guys.

The PO started to do a restoration on the car and had taken the rockers off and a bunch of other stuff as you can see from the pic. It made checking the car out real easy.

It neeeds very little to put it back on the road. Fuel and FI line replacements are planned. Along with a paint job. Don't know if I'm going to keep it white or go back to the original yellow. My son wants it to stay white so it will match his car (70 1.7L). New trunk seals, carpet and some new tires. All I'm waiting for is warm weather to get started.

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 21 2003, 12:52 AM

You know, I dont recall what silver that is. I'm pretty sure its stock 73 silver (the car was originally silver before the flair install aprox 8 years ago or so)

She loves it. Drives the wheels off it. She has put more mileage on the 914 than she has on her 1 year old Tahoe.

She wants me to do a V8 conversion in it for her.. I told her only if I could use the new ZO6 engine from the Vette. She used to drive all of the V8 conversion cars I built in the past.

thats great you wife likes 914's. My girlfriend can hardly drive my Subaru with manual trans. I have yet to let her get behind the wheel of the 914. Maybe late one night in a HUGE parking lot blink.gif

Posted by: Jenny Jan 21 2003, 10:56 AM

Funny, I can say the same about my boyfriend. Not overly enthusiastic about my 914. He's never driven it. I guess he prefers to play with his MR2 turbo... <_<

Posted by: Mueller Jan 21 2003, 12:02 PM

Thought I'd post a pic of my freshly washed 914 here...in fact the wife washed it while I changed the rims on it....her comment?

"it's about time you got a decent 914 instead of those other pieces of cr@p !!!!"

damn baby...I didn't know you felt that way..LOL

Thanks to Mike Ginter, here's my favorite photo of my "babies". The car and the youngest daughter.

This was during our drive up the coast on Hwy 1 during the Tour 2000. We were just south of Big Sur with spectacular views of the ocean. It was a great day to be touring and I was having a special time with Meredith. Times like that don't happen often enough.

Mueller,

I was hoping you almost had it running and that's why you've been quiet this week.

I don't have any more pictures of my car with me so here's a picture of my old boss instead.

PS - nice banana!

Posted by: Mueller Jan 24 2003, 04:10 PM

I've spent a little bit of time on the car this week...the most frustrating was spending an hour to lift the sucker up as high as I could to put on my heavy duty jack-stands to end up having the car too close to the garage door so that it wouldn't shut....

I was half tempted to take my sawzall to the front bumper guards/tips to eliminate the problem..........

But luckly, I calmed down and did the job correctly, LOL

Posted by: Jeroen Jan 25 2003, 05:41 AM

"But luckly, I calmed down and did the job correctly, LOL"

Thanks Jeff mad.gif Now I'm back to reconsidering silver as the color to paint my car. I think I've pretty much decided on Adriatic Blue. It's pretty and you don't see it too often. The big advantage (IMO) is that it's not a metallic so it should be easier to blend repairs after those off-track excursions.

Looks better than when I had it. However, a "ride" is what you get from someone else because you don't have a license yet. A "ride" is what the bus gives you because you lost your license at the Milpitas side show. Sorry, I don't have a "ride", I have a "car". cool.gif

Mueller,

what wheels have you got on it? I can't tell from the pic.
They look sweet.

My white 72 is prolly just arriving in LA as I write this. I've got some 16x6 fuchs going on this summer.

Posted by: Mueller Feb 10 2003, 08:28 PM

Seanery,

The rims are 15x5.5 Enkies.....(closer to six)
Tire size: 205/60/15's
Offset of the rims is unknown (I'm sure it's stamped or something)....I prefer the offset of these rims over the stock rims due to the increased track and how the wheels really fill up the fender wells. I have no problems on the passanger side, but the drivers side is rubbing
(blistered the paint on my first trip around the block today)...no big deal...the car needs a new paint job one of these days...

URY914,

What happened?
I take it you started down that path on purpose?? smile.gif

Vegasracer... you didnt offend anyone. You CANT offend anyone here. The 10 post rule is in effect because of spammers from INDIA. I dont want them signing up and posting CRAP/SPAM for a few posts. Feel free to start a new thread about nothing and post blah blah until your 10 posts have been reached.

Andy was just pointing out why you couldnt post pics. He meant nothing by it (I know him personally) He should have used a few smilies or at least... shot at you with the machine gun.

Dunno about the "10 posts before adding pics" rule
If you check Watsonrx13 above, you'll see he added a picture and he only made 2 posts so far
OTOH he uploaded the picture...
I think the problem with the pic from VegasRacer is that he is referring to a URL.
I've tried the URL, and it redirects you to get a password or sumptin'
(it's one of those online alblums that try to get your e-mail addy so they can spam you)
I think the redirect on the URL is the problem for the pic not showing here on the BBS

Am I still making sence so far wacko.gif

SirAndy - no offence taken or intended.

My car is a 74 with a 2. something 4 cyl.
The suspension is out of an 85 911 Carrera.
I have run with POC and PCA in the past.
I have more fun and am more competitive when
I vintage race with VARA and HSR West.
Right now the motor is being rebuilt.
I kinda stuck it in 2nd gear at Willow Springs
when I was aiming for 4th. OUCH!!!
I've got some pretzeled valves if you've got some beer.

Brad, thanks for the warm welcome. I just keep posting those e-bay pics to irritate you. *lol* Actually, I haven't done anything to the car, other than collect parts, since I bought it. My garage right now is packed to the rafters and the snow outside still hasn't gone away enough to allow me to park some of the toys on the street. I hope I can count on you for advice when I do get the chance to work on it.


Korijo: Nope, no stickers planned. In fact none of my cars has stickers on them. However, only one of them is currently running - the daily driven Honda. The RX7 Turbo has some engine problems, the clutch is out of the 944 Turbo and the 914 is a long ways from moving down the road under it's own power. Good to hear you don't like stickers either. I probably wouldn't get any sleep if I found out my donation to your wheelchair was spent on anything other than performance mods. wink.gif

They are protective trim to help from getting door dings, ugly then, ugly now mueba.gif mueba.gif

I know that this is not a 914, but I have a few reasons to post it on this list.

1. Brad helped me on this car way back in 1996, when he had a shop in Arlington, TX (BRM Performance).

2. The car is going to be moving to the Bay Area with me on June 2nd, and I hope to soon get a 914 to put on the track.

3. It will be getting an engine transplant to a 2.3L 914 motor...must have more power.

Anyway, here it is...

Posted by: boxstr Apr 11 2003, 09:40 AM

Some of the side strips were dealer installed, ask me how I know. The dealer I worked at installed the aluminium metal strips first, drilled holes and either screwed or pop rivet on and then inserted the rubber center and then the end caps.
It was all a sales dept. profit deal, along with the other add-ons. I saw alot of that when I was at a Datsun dealership.

My car has that '70's trim piece too. I personally don't like it on my car and I've been thinking about taking it off. Don't want to make a bigger mess though.

Thanks Chris. I will never forget the one time when one of the PDI guys was drilling into the door and his drill bit broke and gouged out the paint about 12 inches. Car was being delivered that day. Owner backed out of the deal when he saw the damage.
The stick on ones have probably all put fallen of of most of the 914s and yes some 911s.

Posted by: Britain Smith Apr 12 2003, 01:36 AM

Thanks for the props on the 912...it is actually a '69.

As I understand, the side trim peices were part of the option list from the factory, but they could have been dealer installed also. They actually came in a narrow width and a thicker width and matched the front and rear trim on the bumpers. When I did the restoration of this car, I decided not to put the peices back on and I have the holes filled.

As for the stereo, I designed and built it with the intention that it could be taken out also (for weight savings). It packs one hell of a bump for a single 8" sub. Surprisingly, I was able to eliminate every single rattle from the car so the it doesn't sound horrible from the outside.

Here is the pic that Brad was referrring too...my Mom had the great idea of pushing the car up the drive way with an Explorer. Needless to say, things didn't end up like they should have and then they call me to tell me the bad news. lol!!

Blynes,

How did you attach your flares? Some sort of rivet, or are they removable? I dig the "bolt-on" look...only other car I've seen like that is the silver and blue Patrick Motorsport 914. It looks like there is something between the flare and body...what is it?

Thanks for the info
BH

Posted by: Blynes Apr 19 2003, 03:50 AM

I am in Savannah, GA

the flares FG were pop rivited in place we used Volkswagen Bug fender welting.

I first thought to bond them would be the way to go but now I really like the look.

I have lots of pictures of the car since I bought it in December but for some reason I was not albe to upload them this morning.

Off to the track

Later

Those are Bontempi's flares right? Does he make them or are they from another source? I like them. hehe. How wide can you go on the rears? 245? I the subtleness of them, they aren't too flashy.

Posted by: nine14cats Apr 29 2003, 12:41 AM

I think 245's on 16" or 17" rims would fit. Brad probably has a better knowledge of the different sizes that would fit under there. I'm running 15x7" rims right now due to class restrictions. I can run racing slicks on the 15x7's, or any size tire/rim combo if it's a DOT-R. I'll probably get a set of 17" rims with DOT-R's to try out from a friend, but I really like the slicks. They feel great on the track.

Bontemp owns the molds to the panels. He has someone mfg them for him. He's got lightweight racing thickness and street thickness. I went street thickness for durability. The fenders are amazingly light but are really strong....I like 'em!

This is really a cool ad.
I copied it from this post then tried out a new program I just got from Ebay. If you don't have the ability to print big poster size pics this program sections the photo into quadrants and sends them to your printer to be printed on 81/2 x 11 paper. You can make the picture as big as you want.... like wall murals. you just trim the borders and put it together like a puzzle. I did this one in a 4 quad print that gave me a 22 x 17 poster. Plus it has the ability within the program to inhance the picture so you aren't getting a blurry mess.

Mark Henry. I LOVE the look of the Sprint Stars on your 914. wub.gif

I seem to remember a post where you mentioned that they had a different offset than standard EMPI-GTV Sprint Stars. Do you remember what the offset is for your particular set of wheels? I need a pair of non-negetive offset wheels for the back of my Beetle project.

I've got 3 sets in my collection. Unfortunately, not all of mine are worth using, and I don't think I have any (other than 4.5") that will fit a 914.

Thanks for posting them. Hope you don't mind if I add your pics to my 914 pic collection.

This was my last 914 ('74 1.8) which was a very nice car. I sold her to a 72-year old SCCA racer from South Florida.

I saw it for sale in the Autotrader about a year ago.

Anyone know where it is?

Yeh, Brad liked them as well.

I like the looks of them as well, but they are a steel wheel and a bit heavy. Also they have the factory original paint and I can see a couple of pin points of rust peaking through, so if I'm going to keep them I should refinish them soon.

This set was on the 914 when I bought it, I also have a couple of other (4 1/2" and 5 1/2") sets. If I ever get back to it I have almost all of the stuff needed to make myself a full-blown Empi GTV bug.

These rims stick out further than my other sets, I doubt if they would even fit under a stock bug fender. Right now I have 185/70-15 tires (PO) on it and they fit perfect, good clearance, 195's will also fit and 205's would be close but they might fit. My fenders have never been pulled or rolled. I have 2 sets of 2.0 Fuch's but I still haven't changed them. I may leave the stars on unless I go to the 5 bolt Fuch's. happy11.gif

I can get you the offset if you like. I'm in for the night and the first show of the year is tomorrow, so I try to do it Sunday night. I'm real busy and I tend to forget shit, so if you don't hear from me shoot me an email and remind me to measure the rims.

Tell me more about the phone dials? 944 I assume but I think there is more than one offset available, maybe turbo vs non turbo. Which do I look for for a 914?

Posted by: Bleyseng May 3 2003, 11:05 PM

Jim, Mike Mueller ran them on his other car too and got them to fit. The offset should be 4 7/8" but what year that is, I lost that chart.

Posted by: Kargeek May 12 2003, 11:47 AM

Here’s mine. This is a great board for the 914. I personally re-built the car between 1981 and 1988 and have owned it for 25 years. Painted Porsche Chiffon white. It was a bare shell project and I had the luxury of using mostly all NOS parts. It's a '72 with a dual carb 2.0 euro P/C's spec motor, late side shift trans, six suspension and 4 wheel vented brakes. 6X16’s NOS brown interior, rubber etc. and every nut bolt and hardware bead blasted and re plated. NOS Italian wiring harness, French taillights- a lot of mixed Porsche parts on the car. I molded the front aftermarket valance, a six pan in the rear and punched some louvers in the rockers and angled them out slightly- I used 944 rear hatch shocks for the rear trunk so I could remove the trunk springs to clear my carb linkage. I’m not ashamed to have the VW - Porsche emblem on the rear. Sorry to say, it’s a bit of a garage queen with 4,000 miles. Dave Hhttp://community.webshots.com/album/29151579sPbaMhrqvk

Thanks for the comment. I bought the car in '78 off a used car lot with a cheezy bronze color repaint with 90,000 miles. Made payments on it for 3 years and ran it into the ground. I tore it apart in '81 to build an engine and one thing led to another. These cars are finally getting the respect they deserve. If only I had a dollar for every time someone asked me if it was a six- or, telling me it's not a real Porsche, I'd be a wealthy man.

To register, forms are available on the Zone 8 website www.pca.org/zone8 or http://vista.pca.org/ocr/. In addition to the Porsches, this year you can drool over all kinds of "other" automotive delights - you have to like them all and it would be good to have the 914's in better attendence. Dave H

Posted by: boxstr May 14 2003, 06:54 PM

Jim copied my carbon fiber dash insert. It is a piece of carbon fiber that I set a template of the 914 insert over and then traced and cut out with a saw and Dremel tool. I would show you mine but I sold that car. The carbon fiber is availble at TAP plastics and runs about $85 .

Posted by: Britain Smith May 14 2003, 07:03 PM

Posted by: boxstr May 14 2003, 07:07 PM

Exactly what it looks like but you are correct. It is a stiif or hard sheet of the carbon fiber 3'x3'. You may want to call the TAP plastics store nearest you to see if they have it in stock.

JFort, this group is not clairvoyant. Boxter is a friend, neighbor and fellow 914 nut. He knows the gray six very well. Helped me push it into the garage when I brought it home in pieces. JP Stein knows the car as well. The others have only seen pictures. I know you are going to enjoy it. Glad to see you on this forum.

As Boxter said, I did copy his idea and used his left over material. I cut it easily with a pair of scissors. Real easy to work with. The dash on the gray six is 2 pieces, split at the column. Glued to the dash (after removing old vinyl and metal backing) with contact cement.

It's a daily driver with a Euro 3.2 and stock DME Injection.
It started life as a 2 liter in 86.
Later in 86 I installed a 2.7 with Webers.
Two years ago the 2.7 started pulling head studs so I replaced it with the 3.2.
I tried multiple combinations and ended up with:
Front
21 mm front torsion bars.
22 mm weltmeister adjustable sway bar.
205-50-16 tires.
Rear
140lb springs
Stock rear sway bar
245-45-16 tires.
This combination got rid of the throttle induced oversteer and its not to stiff for the street.
Some day I will get the money to install steel GT flairs and paint it.

Posted by: Porsche Rescue Jun 27 2003, 01:15 PM

Allow me to show off my '74. I can take no credit for its appearance. The PO bought it new and only put 30,200 total miles on it. Even with such little use, he took great care of the car. What I find most unusual is the modifications on such a low-mile car (he entered local PCA autocross and concours in the southeast, car is from Tennessee). Has externally adjustable Konis with movable spring perchs, hard bushings, 911 front brakes, Weltmeister truss bar, factory sway bars (car was originally a 1.8) and custom 5 gauge console. The paint is entirely original except the obvious rocker panels and 916 type glass bumpers. The bumpers were added in 1992 when the car had 25K miles. Unfortunately he did not keep the originals. I bet they were nice. I got it with a blown 1.7 race engine in a crate. My only contribution has been to install a carbed 2.0. When I get the carbs right it will run as good as it looks (that's why the engine lid is not on yet).

Thanks for the "supportive" comments. The paint looks better in those pics than it does in real life. The PO painted it on a really humid day...its got some runs in the clear coat. As my friend says, "...it looks good from far, but it's far from good." I absolutely love the car. I cannot take any credit for the build of the car (except the Fuchs and brand new Kumho V700's). The PO basically built it from a bare tub. The minimal rust that it had was repaired and it was built for the track. Mild 2.0 w/ dual Webers, 911 struts, 911 calipers and vented rotors all around, Weltmeister swaybar, Konig sport seat, 5-point harnesses, and a Fuel Safe fuel cell. Let me know if anyone is interested in seeing some other pics.

Thanks

Posted by: Kargeek Jul 3 2003, 11:55 PM

Very Nice, Mountain and Bravo! I like the rear flair and rocker treatment on the Mountain car. Bravo's silver with the polished rim 16's is striking. What size tires are on the silver car? Also, how much fender rolling and massaging was done to fit the 7" wide rims? I am running 205/55 series with my 6X16's and I have always thought that maybe a 50 series tire would be better proportioned to the car. Dave

Posted by: BravoHotel Jul 4 2003, 06:26 AM

Dave,

Thanks for the kind words. I am running 205/45-16's...I also have another set of wheels that have 205/50-15's. I really like the proportions on both sets, but the 16's look the best. The only thing that was done to the fender wells was to pinch the inside lip...no "pulling" was required.

Brian

Posted by: Rods914 Jul 4 2003, 01:43 PM

cool.gif Brian, Do you have any pixs of the interior?? I do like your custom rims and tires. I stayed with the stock Mahle wheels. My sons helped me clean and paint the rims and the car two months ago and they still look clean. The rear wing came off of an Accura, but we had to modify it to make it look right.
The red paint makes the car go faster then yellow, just ask the police!!!(HA) sad.gif

Aaron,
Yes we painted the rubber bumper tops. I used flexable primer and flexable bondo(very thin) I found both of these products at my local paint supplier. It worked good but if I were to do it again I would buy fiber glass bumpers instead. If you want to know more details just send me a PM.

would like to add a suggestion
I love all the car photos on this site but....
would love to see a site with just car photos
as when i whent to show some 914's to a
coworker who was not familiar with them
we spent more time browsing thru text, than
looking at photos.
hope this does not start me off on wrong foot!

G.MILLER - Welcome to the best teener site on the Internet.
I think most everybody here has their personal photo gallery.
Just start saving the good Porsche photos you come across
and before you know it you will have a large file for show and tell.

Doug,

The Daytona weather SUCKED. It was 95 degrees and 85% humidity during our race at 11PM Thursday night. It was brutal to say the least. I grew up around heat (Texas) but trying to work/function at 1am with a car on the track wasnt fun. It drained the life out of all of us.


Welcome GMiller !!

We will have a "Readers Rides" section some time this winter. We really dont do anything computer related during the summer time.. the idea's poor in and we will address them when the weather here in CA. cools off (Nov.-Feb.) Its no fun sitting in front of the computer working on the club site (for free) when we would rather be working on our cars or racing.

Simpson sells red belts. They also make Cam lock belts which if you are going to spend the money on new belts, is the way to go.. No latches to mess around with, ext. Also if your budget is tight, Check out Racers Whole Sale's catologe, New Camlock belts (the brand is G-force, My dad uses them in his track car, nice belts for the money) fetch 120 each, instead of 200+ each. I bought some simpsons for my street car. and I cant wait, just have to find some cheap racing seats (anyone want to donate some used one's? hehehe), or custom fiberglass mine...

I cant believe I havent posted any pics! Well I'll just tell you all about my car, because all you guys have gotten is little tidbits.

Well here is where I started out.
http://members.rennlist.com/dan10101/914/Index914.htm

My car has been changed a ton, and it is undergoing alot. I have since the pictures done a whole heck of a lot. Let me name a few. Starting with the inside,
I put in a perfect dash,
I have a like new Momo steering wheel (80 bucks at a swapmeet with hub)
http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads/post-2-1053190320.jpg
I am making fiberglass enclosures for my speakers and sub for my sound system, all totally stealth.
I am keeping the factory A/C but modifying it to be stealthy and for my knees (dont like the bulky under look)
I have 5 point black Camlock simpson harnesses. Thus I will be using carpet instead of a backpad.
I will be fiberglassing my seat so that it is more of a race seat and so I can use the harnesses.
I scraped off all the tar on the floorpans and Por 15'd the beautiful floorpans
http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?act=ST&f=2&t=2854&hl=
The rest of the interior will be stock or stock looking. (stealth/race interior..)

The Handling and braking.
I have 5 lug currently installed with polished 16x7 Fuchs(300),
With a complete 5 lug suspension I bought at a swapmeet, I got front 911 M aluminum calipers with a 3.5 in bolt spacing, new pads, new vented rotors, Koni's, the hubs, strut housing, A complete front kit. I also got rear trailing arms and rear vented stock 914 calipers with a spacer, utilizing the stock E brake. All for uhh bout 400 bucks.
http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?act=ST&f=2&t=1614&hl=
http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?act=ST&f=2&t=2810&hl=
I also have turbo tie rods installed, a 19mm M/C, a braking 'T' proportioning valve, the works.

The engine is a stock 2.0, I am currently going to do a simple rebuild, and I have all the FI to convert it back to stock FI. I am cleaning it right now and painting everything to be painted.
The body needs a complete repaint, and some minor repairs. I will be using 225's or larger in the rear for flares, So I am going to custom flare my rear fenders, and roll the fronts. I am going to cut a line across the top of the rear fenders, pull the fenders out, and weld in the gap with some sheet metal. The finished product should look like
http://members.rennlist.com/mueller/RearPrimerView.jpg

Well I think thats enough for now. OH WAIT! Let me show you me in action! 1 day after I got my license (a week ago)

Car looks great. I see why you bought it. One week from "no flywheel" to "new clutch" is pretty good. Enjoyed meeting you and your Dad at the PNW meet.

Hey Jim I was in Lake Oswego about two months ago and seen this clean red 914 wearing fuchs driving the other direction. driving.gif I felt like chasing the guy down and talk Porsche. Come to find out it was you from what one of the guys over at Pelican told me. Remember I sold you a set of Fuchs last year? LOL What a small world, I drive 12 hours and just happen to see you driving down the road. LOL

As far as I have been able to determine, the color
is metallic viper green. The paint code on the badge
is L 98 B, which I think I finally tracked down on a list
of VW paint codes. I don't see any evidence of this car
having been repainted. Even if it has, I believe this is a
stock color as I've seen two others just like it.

The VIN is 4762903546.

Thanks to Sean for posting the pic for me!

I've been driving this Renegade v8 conversion for about a year now. It was a pleasure to put together and is a real thrill to drive.

Many of you have helped during by build process and I've lost touch for the past 8 months or so. The car has gone from 4 lug to 5 now with a new set of rubber and a brake upgrade.

The drivetrain has proven to be reliable with about 5000 miles logged to date, and it's about time to install a modern a/c-heater (my next project).

Yeah, top of the line radar detector recommend for running on streets..........hard to keep it under 80 mph. It "was" a 2.0L '73 with dual Dellortos when I started and was a blast to drive until it started knocking (bad). This is just something I alway wanted to do. I'm really surprised at how well the transaxle has held up........a real concern I had when entering this project.

My objective was to have a little more power, modern heat and air and no oil leaks. Not my first Porsche but some of the improvements I wanted to make this time around.

John

Posted by: John2kx Aug 23 2003, 08:14 PM

I quit counting at about $20,000 but this is how I got there:

Initial investment- '73 2.0 running and in good condition= $3500

Custom built engine including shipping from west to east coast = $5000

Wheels, tires, suspension, brakes (all provided by Rich Johnson) = $3000

Renegade conversion (rear springs, a/c+heater, wiring harness, exhaust, cooling system, HD clutch, v8 conversion kit, gages. = $5000

The rest was spent on various upgrades/restoration.....door latches, various chrome pieces, rubber, bumper restoration (ouch!), gage replacement, seats, mats, new dash pad. This list could go on forever, but you get the idea.

John

Posted by: a914guy Aug 24 2003, 11:54 AM

OK, I'm in on this thread.

This is Ole yeller, my faithful '71 914-6, 3.0L conversion. I'm the second owner and have added 220K to the original 35K mileage.

No point in discussing pure dollar value as I'm sure the amount invested over the past 20+ years is staggering. My return in driving enjoyment and the doors that have opened to new 914 friendship is worth every penny spent.

By year's end I'll have the new Porsche sanctuary finished out appropriately to house Yeller and provide quality space for my reoccuring German therapy sessions.

Hay Mike Z., send your therapist my way.

I'm new to the 914 but my enthusiasm is great. The photo is of my 1975 1.8. It came with some sort of big bore kit in it. I bought it in May of 2003 and don't have any contact info for the previous owner to discuss what the engine size actually is. It does have a pair of Delorto 45mm's that are seem too large, I think a pair of 38’s or 40’s would have been a better sizing. I will be swapping the venturis out soon and rejetting as it runs considerably too rich as it is. I paid $2900 for it. I've mostly been repairing little things and cleaning it up (new 914-6 clutch, new throttle cable, turn signal and tail light lenses, fixing small electrical problems, window cranks, etc.). The Riviera wheels have also been replaced with a set of Mahles and 195/60 tires since the photo was taken.

I recently (three weeks ago) acquired a white 1976 2.0 complete car with a 72 1.7 engine in it (the 72 1.7 engine has 61,000 miles on the original completely stock engine and is rather anemic compared to the engine that’s in the 75). The 76 seemed like a pretty good deal at $2100. It appears to be a nearly rust free California car, which included the car with the 72 1.7 engine in it (runs very well), the original 2.0 engine complete as an engine to be rebuilt, a set of five Mahle 5.5x15 wheels, a spare set of seats, gages, and a whole bunch of other spare parts that came off the 72 914 that the engine came out of, not to mention a gaggle of receipts for things like turbo tie rods, Bilstein front shocks, Koni rears, a new clutch and pressure plate, braided stainless front brake lines, and too many other things to list.

Neither car is anything special compared to some of the exotic 914's I'm seeing on this web site but they're mine and should provide a boat load of fun as I get into them. They sure are fun to drive! Oh, and I’ve bought every book on the 914 that I could find so far. Please bear with me if I ask a lot of questions in the future.

Best regards to all,
Don

Brad,

Thank you for the welcome.

A friend here in Boise (works for Hewlett Packard) has a pair of 914's and I've met one other gent while waiting for the wife outside of a store sitting in my 75 914 (his is the green 914 in my avatar). Yesterday on the way to work I found myself following a very nice looking brown 914 and have seen a couple others around town whizzing by, but that's about it. So I know there are several around here but just haven't been able to hook up with them. I was hoping some of them might be on 914 Club dot com but haven't seen any yet.

This is great web site!

Send a pic to Mark as I don't think there is a pic of that color yet.

To be honest with you, I'm not sure what options were available. The guy that sold it to me told me that he had basically put a new (used) interior in it. It's got striped seat pads, and he was sure to point out to me that I had "real" gauges in the center console (ie, they have actual numbers on them and are not just idiot gauges).

The carpet isn't great, and the dash is cracked so I keep it covered. It had the original steering wheel on it, and that was falling apart but there was a fully functional if slightly beat up older Momo wheel in the boot, so I put that on instead. I didn't like the original wheel anyhow - too big. The plastic shift knob was broken and kept coming off in my hand when I went for second gear, so I put a nice leather Momo shift knob on (installed it myself! smile.gif ).

It's not quite a total beater, but it is definitely not a show car.

Loved the car and did some work to it. Then did a very bad thing ohmy.gif
IPB Image
More info about her http://www.icbm.org/erkson/personal/914STATS.HTM.

Now last week I bought a rough 1973 2.0L D-jet (original engine/car was a 1.7L) with an oil leak (PO says it's the oil cooler seals) that was originally a metallic lime-green but currently has a cheap-ass yellow overcoat mad.gif Rust holes in the body due to the infamous battery location but the interior is sweet. She will be my project car and I'm looking forward to working on her. Luckily, I salvaged almost my entire wrecked 914 before scraping her (please don't razz me, I'm kicking myself in the butt about that daily) so I have some rubber and stuff to put on my "new" 914 (like a rebuilt tranny and shifter & PORSCHE rear reflector). No pictures yet but they'll be coming.

Here's my original pride-n-joy that got me into air-cooled dubs (recognize the nose, Mark?):

A 1972 Squareback (a.k.a. Type III) originally owned by my parents. Hi-perf 2.0L w/5-speed. This engine, were I to swap it with the 914 (a 'cool' swap in the T3 world) would make the 914 an insurance risk dance.gif

Why not just swap the 1.8 for a 2.0 and keep the L-Jet? As long as it's only an interim solution anyway. Leaves more $$ for beer.gif

I'm running a 2.0 with the 1.8 FI, only changes involved the intake runners and injectors. I had to cut and re-weld the runners to match-up to the plenum, and simply swapped in injectors from a 2.0 bus. It runs a bit rich, especially on overrun (nice popping from the Bursch!) but it gets great milage due to the increased torque according to Rich @ HPH

CSOBONC Mike Scott in SJ, CA Still trying to unload a '74 1.8...

" picked it up for $4500 Canadian so, thats what, maybe $2700 US. What a deal!
It's a totally cool machine, we are both hooked on it! Who needs drugs, buy a 914 if you need a rush! We now both want more power, this year it gets a 2L d-jet..."

My second 914.
First was a good old green 76 2.0L that was perhaps the most reliable car I've ever owned. It worked, it was way fun, and even as a regular little 914 2.0L I could make horrid street driving kids feel bad in their souped up Eastern imports - sometimes its just the driver.
Sadly, the 2.0L was killed by a Ford Escort on New Years Eve day while going to watch my wife in her big screen debut (featured extra -and she kept her clothes ON!!!).
I came running to this board and with the 'groups' help I found a NEW child.

The second 914. Its a 73 1.7L, I have no real knowledge of the car. Right now I'm putting in another 1.7L engine, the first 1.7 has a bent/broken intake valve problem -AKA a rebuild problem. So far, I'm happy with the new 'look' the first car needed a TON of paint related work, rust, some minor dings etc.

I want to remove the back 'mullet' spoiler, but am waiting until I can have the entire car painted. I have a few little under-carriage related rust issues to deal with over the next year -and naturally, I still have to see how the new engine runs.

Till I can find a 6 cyl I like (and can purchase) this is the car, not very 'beefy' but still, its a dying breed and I'm happy to have one that still breaths!!!

Jeroen, how many colors is that 914?? Damn, atleast its a roller now. How about some shots of the completed rust repairs.

Robby750, How come you have a 75-76 front bumper and a early rear bumper?

Geoff

Posted by: Jeroen Sep 19 2003, 12:51 PM

the car was yellow originally, but was repainted to brown/gold metalic icon8.gif
the front and rear fenders are in primer (those are new)
the doors came from a orange car (repainted to red) and will be junked

I'll try to post some pics of the rust repairs later on
They're not the purdiest repairs, but they will do their job (for this car, I don't care about pretty)

cheers,

Thanks Rick,
You saw the orange six I had a few years ago. You need to get your car together. What do you still need done?
Thanks
Van

Posted by: kafermeister Sep 19 2003, 02:16 PM

Yes, I remember the Orange /6 quite well. WOW how that thing sounded! How many 914s do you have now? I believe you sold the /6.

As for my 914. My car has been sitting while I collect parts. I've had a '69 Beetle apart for a few years and I don't want more than one project apart at a time. In the mean time, the longitudinal rust on the 914 has got to the point where It will be more costly to fix my current car than to buy another....which is what I did. Just as soon as I get the checks mailed out (which will happen this Friday), I'll be getting a blue '75 that was on the classifieds here a week or two back. The only major thing this one needs is fenders, paint, and assembly (and a battery tray). All of which, I already have. It will cut my completion time and costs drastically.

Rick

Posted by: robby750 Sep 19 2003, 09:28 PM

Geoff, I had a perfect rear chrome bumper and decided to use it. I don't mind the looks of the front rubber bumper and decided to leave it alone for now. It's very rare to find someone in this part of the country that would even notice the difference. Some old man was asking about my car when I stopped at a country store for gas the other day. He knew it was a Porsche and that it had a 4 cylinder engine. He complimented me on the condition and then guessed it was worth about $30,000.00! I laughed and told him not quite. After I left I realized I should have said yes, but I was in a financial bind and would take $20,000.00. happy11.gif

Posted by: dgale914 Sep 22 2003, 11:42 AM

Here's mine and the flares I labored to put on! That was a bunch of work!

The car has a 302 Chevy V8 putting out about 385 HP with 335 ftlbs of torque. Koni and Weltmeister suspension, Sway-a-Way torsion bars, w/no sway in the rear.

Needless to say, it's spanked many cars on the street and the track! Love to spank Detroit iron! (or 930's)

Hi Gang,
My car is a real factory six cylinder serial numbered car with a 1986 3.2 engine and transmission. It has headers into a 911 sport exhaust. The lower rear valance is vented for improved engine cooling. The car is lowered 1 3/4 inch using slalom springs front and rear. It has boxed rear trailing arms, Koni shocks on the front and Bilsteins on the rear.
The brakes are 911S front calipers. The engine is estimated at over 220 hp. I am running 16 in Fuchs with 205 Yokohama R compound tires.
It has extreme acceleration and great handling. I run the car through driver ed events at Watkins Glen, Mid Ohio and the new Beaver Run. I also have done a few auto cross events. I also have a 1982 911SC Euro, but find the 914 out performs the 911 on the track.

The easy part is the turn signals. See in Florida you're not suppose to use them, its the law. They are only to be used for driving down the road and not turning. blink.gif

...throwing one more into the pot - I hope. My first try at a pic posting. Still a newbie I reckon, until the first car picture is successful.

Mine is a 914/6 [/4 conversion] vintage racer, first raced in 1993, always with VARAC in Canada. The quick and dirty: all steel narrow body [as per rules]; 2L six built as an S with some tweeks; built for fun; safety; and reliability. Most of rest of the build sheet is fairly normal stuff - happy to go into any detail if requested. This winter project is a close ratio gearbox to keep it in the happy-times power band.

...sadly, not! We have four or five well-prepared Cooper S' driven by - in at least one case - ex pro drivers, and they FLY. Never use their brakes, and always in a four wheel drift. I'd rather be in front, but watching these cars from behind is great entertainment. I'm about 2 secs slower than the best Minis. BUT I can usually count on more track time, as their engines and especially gearboxs regularly self-destruct. Then we get into the British car jokes!

My new 914-V8. I bought this from a gentleman in San Diego a couple weeks ago. It is a '71 but has a lot of parts from a '75 on it. Resprayed yellow but did a pretty complete job of stripping first. It has a Renegdae modifiied 914 transaxle with 1st gear removed (or locked out) and taller 3rd, 4th and 5th.

It runs pretty well but needs a little tweeking. The cooling system lines are not run very well (one was resting against the header and melted through). Shifting into 2nd (now 1st) has been tough but getting a little easier (it may just need some breaking in). The rear tires rub (225/50-16 on 16x7 Fuchs) so I will be expanding the rear fenders a bit.

Is that the stripe a certain less than knowledgable "doctor" sold as a rare factory option - in fact it was so rare that the factory didn't even know about it?! Good Lord do I hate that guy.

The stripe came from AA. I paid only $10 for it. Too bad its peeling off now. It seemed to be made for Porsche. The bag had VW AG on it.

I was at the "Doctors office" today and he said Quote.."All e-bay useres are thieves and I hate them all!" I overheard him yelling at his staff about e-bay and paypal. Just think, he was about to sell me used junk, again. Yack.gif

Project 1 is the easy project (I hope).
Just needs some minor welding and the carb setup put back on.
Then a new paint job. The PO put one of those 20 ft. paint jobs on it....to cover flaws I'm sure, one of which I just stumbled upon....more on that in another post. I really like that aubergine color....hmmm.

Washed the car today. The wheels are Racing Dynamics for a 930 turbo. The rears are9.5/17 with a 20.5mm offset with a 255/40/17 tire and I'm using a 1" spacer on these for clearence on the inside. The fronts are 8.5 with a 13.5mm offset and a 235/40/17 tire with no spacer.

I've owned the car since 1984 and have been working on it for the last year. I installed a 350 chevy that I built from a bare block. I built all of my conversion mounts and brackets myself I Did the 5 lug conversion with a front suspension and brakes from a 86 911 on the rear I used vented rotors and the stub axles from the 911. I also used the axles from a 89 all wheel drive 911 and made adapters for the 901 transaxle.

I've been driving the car for a few months now. Was even brave enough to take it on a 1000 mile round trip a few weeks ago.

First post!

Just bought it a few weeks ago. Only stalled it once (my fault).

Its my first 914!

74 1.8. FI. Flowed heads. Optical Ign. Old style linkage (I dont remember why the seller said he did this other than (it was easier to work on I think). The seller was a 914 mechanic and this was his last of about a dozen he'd had over the years. Rust on the chassis and past the paint is minimal. It goes much faster than my daily driver saab. Needs weather stripping and new door handles.

Ironically my main car didnt start up yesterday and I had to use my "project" car to get to work. Its got a nice loud exhaust, which everyone loves when in the parking garage =) But after seeing it, everyone calls it the Porsche GOAP =\

I was going to sell it for a little more than I got it, as I became overwhelmed by the vanity repairs and I thought "I can make a few bucks" but I just love seeing it too much in my driveway and love driving it even more. I'm still on the fence though, as I'm pretty damned busy and impatient when it comes to fixin stuffs (but not lazy).

Posted by: Brad Roberts Nov 21 2003, 02:17 AM

Welcome Grayson !! clap56.gif clap56.gif

You have come to the right place.

The car looks better than half of what I see people starting with. Drive it once a week and start experimenting with how the car handles. You havent even tipped the iceberg yet on what the little cars do.

Posted by: grayson Nov 21 2003, 02:24 AM

Thanks! I've been lurking on ebay and craigslist for a number of years for a 914. I'm super excited about this one. The only documentation I've got is the pelican parts guides and a haynes manual and a knowledgable friend with a 72 911T.

I had a hell of a time finding the gas tank the first time I was on empty!

Speaking of which, I don't even know what kind of oil and filter I should use! I live near the san francisco area, so no snow but wet. Anyone have any recommendations?

Heres a pic of the engine. The air filter is from home depot (!) I'll probably replace it with a K&N but it works great.

Posted by: kafermeister Nov 21 2003, 09:35 AM

Thanks Jeroen. That picture is my favorite angle of the car in it's present condition as it shows off the solid long and jack point in the original color. It is indeed a nice tub.

I've alredy purchased a nice front right and left rear quarters. Before I even unloaded the car from the trailer, I pulled back the wiring in the engine compartment and sand blasted the important parts so I could size up the work. The *original* battery try is still in the car. It's badly pitted with rust and has one quarter size hole in it but It's solid enough for me to stand on it and I'm not a small guy at 190lb.

There is one pin-hole in the passenger side long. The firewall on both sides need small patches just above the long. The left side engine shelf needs a small ammount of work to fill pin-holes. The passenger side engine shelf may get replaced. It needs the forward most 8 inches or so. I've already got an engine shelf so I may just replace the whole thing.

Looks great by the way Charles! That looks like the e-bay car from Orland Park. Can't wait to see it sometime.


Chris H.

Posted by: cnavarro Nov 26 2003, 06:12 PM

Why, yes it is the Orland Park 914 from Rizza Porsche plus $1000 of body work to repair all the dents and dings and some new Toyo Proxies TS-1s.

Engine is coming out in roughly 2 weeks to receive a top end rebuild with 96mm Nickies, Keith Black pistons, Rebuilt 2L 914 heads with 42 x 38 valves, dual springs, mild port and polish. Also will be receiving a set of ceramic drop-in replacement lifters and ARP Thru-bolts to top off the rebuild. Has a webcam 86 grind in the bottom end which is really tight as is, so I don't want to bother with it. Will also receive a set of Weber 44 IDFs, mallory unilite, hyfire VI, and a new bananna stock muffler. While i'm at it, i'm having the little bit of rust repaired and replacing all the cables, mounts, etc.

The car will be driven to CA for the Dunkel's show in Feb, so all the updates will be done by then. The previous owner had already done some mods like koni reds in the back, 140 springs, stainless brake lines, etc. All in all, a nicely maintained car and excellent for having been a rust belt car!

Thanks Andy. It doesn't show up well in the pictures but it's painted that turquoise color that was offered on the late 80's Camaro/Firebird. I actually went to the dealer and got the paint code off a car in the showroom. I was about to turn 20 at the time. Salesman thought I was nuts. Oh, and it's an x auto-stick car as well.

I started puting the floor pan bolts back in a few hours ago. The body's been off of the pan since about '98. That pic was taken the day after I set the body back on earlier this month.

In case you were wondering, I no longer use a cable for my speedometer. I bought a sender from a company in California that makes one that screws right onto the end of the angle drive of a 914. The speedometer can also be calibrated.

Heres the best shot I can give you of my "winter project" (since my garage is little more than a shed).
Bought it in July from a dealer- asking price $4995, I offered $2000. drove home for $2200.
It ran like crap but I guess they hadn't noticed both manifolds (carbs) were VERY loose.
Brakes are great, tranny is great, interior was so/so, 2 owner local car 160,000 miles, has one rust hole about 2" long below passenger seat (looks like it was a scrape/dent on bottom of pan and rusted), battery tray is solid.
I did some engine work on it 9 years ago when I worked at a local VW shop.
I currently doing the interior myself- new carpet (easy), updated 2 seat style, but I'm recovering the seats myself...we'll see how it turns out. Also wresting with carb issues- what carbs to run? I have a set of 36 & 40 dellortos, I cant get the 40's to run right, but when I get close theyre better power than the 36's.
Also going to remove the valences/rockers/bumpers and match them to the body.
Anyhow, I'm glad to be back in a Porsche (my last was a 60' Super 90 coupe- FULL RUSTO/RESTO). I'm sure I'll be meeting some of you soon.
HAPPY WINTER!

no 1,8's in '70... if it's not a /6, it's a 1,7 -- unless it was built up at some point in its life, in which case - it could be anything !

Posted by: 914ghost Dec 28 2003, 06:11 PM

Thats true about the 1.7's for 1970, the only reason i thought it was a 1.8 is I have a book somewhere's that says the EA # engines were 1.8 ... ?
I'm guessing the book has it a little off, EA # engines are 1.7L then? Because I'm fairly darn sure its the engine that came with the car.

An EA code engine is a 1.7L engine from 1972-73.

The 1.7s were W codes until 72, when they changed to EA code 1.7Ls.

An EA code engine in a 1970 car would not be original.

Welcome to the board! I remember the thread about your car when it was on ebay. I'm not a big fan of the wood, but it does like someone put a lot of effort into it. The car looks really nice. It's a /6 isn't it? Original or conversion?

Posted by: DuckRyder Jan 1 2004, 07:19 PM

The guy lied about a few things in the auction but what can you
do. Motor was advertised as a 2.4/4 cylinder. Wrong, 100mm
pistons with stock stroke. More like 2.1x. Heads were not
ported and polished as advertised and the motor was crap.
Crank bearing shot, no oil pressure and had water rot in the
cylinders so they had very little compression. I pulled the motor
and had it rebuilt by a shop in Denver. Now it really is a 2.4. 104mm
pistons with stock stroke. Heads completely redone with all new pieces.
Mild Web .423. They told me at 2.4 the Weber 40's would struggle on the
top so I moved up to 44's. Changed the ignition over to a pertronix with
an Mallory, MSD style muli-spark unit. Should run tons better than it did.
Lights in the center console are the idiot lights that were in the stock
instrument cluster. Most of those will be put back in the cluster before
the interior gets modified.

Who built the motor? Painters? G&G (they did the long block in mine).

Are you going to put the interior back to stock? You can probably find some of the pricier parts at the upcoming Carquip swap in February (guages, center console, etc)

I have a black backpad that is nearly perfect as well.

Posted by: 75boxster Jan 6 2004, 06:49 PM

It was Painters that helped me out with the motor. I have yet to run the motor
but I cannot say enough positive things about the people down there. Everyone
there was a class act. The customer service was awesome. As far as the auction
in February, where can I find out when exactly and where. I plan on just upolstering
the door panel. With the power window buttons and power mirror adjustment switch
I am thinking the thin factory coverings minght not hold up so well. Dash will get the stock
vinyl treatment and I will decide on the center consle when I see how it looks with everything else done. The Recaro bolsters really hang over the storage bin between them so either way I will need to keep that custom piece as is, maybe it get covered.

Although I can never get an accurate digital photo of mine. It tones the color down for some reason.

Yea that's what I'm thinking also.

Rick

Posted by: fraggle00 Jan 12 2004, 08:22 PM

Paint Code is unknown, there's no longer and sitckers near the doorjambs. I'd say the other listers are right on the color though.

It was re-shot once in its life - near perfect match. It is a good 20 foot job (or on a digital pic!) Probably when it was fixed from accident damage (!!) I just finished pulling the interior and found the firewall wrinkled a little on the left side. Repair was done well, I missed it on first inspection. Rust isn't bad. Standard battery tray (it was basically GONE!) and some underneath the sound deadener in the passenger seat, caused from a leaky rear window.

Door mirror has a ding in it that I'd like to swap out, but I can't seem to find any on Ebay. Anyone out there got one? PM me, please!!

Posted by: Chris H. Jan 12 2004, 08:36 PM

Well if that's the original color then your paint code is most likely L50C, Laguna Blue. Rick (Kafermeister) and I also have '75s that are the same color. Unfortunately I have tried to capture the color in a pic but it always comes out too dull and light. See what I mean? Anyway welcome to the Club! I'm sure someone here has a mirror they want to sell.

Stickers or a plate? I see alot of cars where the stickers were removed. If the plate is still there, you may still have the paint code. IIRC, the paint code is on a plate in the *front* of the drivers door jam. If the plate is there, it's approximately 1"x1". It will have two numbers stamped on it. The top number will be about 5 digits if I remember correctly. The bottom number will have letters in it. That's the paint code.

Here are pictures of our's in evolution/destruction:
Purchased in Maine 1998 with 38K original miles. Rebuilt by PO's mechanic (unfortunately with a deranged mind). The boys and I removed all identifiable rust the first winter. Changes: suspension: composite bushing all arround, 23mm weiltmiester sway bar up front, none in rear, steering elevated, front lowered, rear koni adjustable and 180 springs. Wheel bearings all arround. Brakes: BMW320i up front with metal pads all arround. Replaced fuel lines, moved fuel pump up front, finally got the rear trunk springs in place(new technique), Roll cage right after buying(driving next to a Buick and seeing tires at head level!!), just placed fiberglass (Rennspd) flares 7" & 9" on. Motor at Mini Performance for 96mm x 78mm conversion. Boys can't decide on final color (Gunmetal gray vs Midnight blue). Suggestions?

Eddie live off Admiral Way not too far from your mom's house Chris.

The front fenders are removable so you can, remove them for quick whatevers at the track. The car came from Calif and was used as a track car.

There are some things that need attention right away on the car. The tub is pretty clean and rust free in the usual areas. Looks like the Hellhole was repaired and the longs are good and solid.

Electrical is a mess but the car has sat for awhile.

Eddie will have to speak up, because I don't know much else about the car.

Geoff

Posted by: Eric Taylor Jan 20 2004, 12:21 AM

Ah crap, that reminds me, I need to get working on my hell hole:( Maybe I'll just drive it till the wheel rust's off. By the way, removable fenders, COOL!

Are those (Eddie K. car) fush mounted headlights, or are the headlights in the bumper?
Any pics with the front fenders mounted?

No headlites, just a piece of lexan over the bucket hole. I didn't take any pics of the car with the fender on.

I have to comment about Randy's sheet metal cross bred car. I don’t know why, the rear quarters remind me of Ford Thunderbird front fenders.

I guess I have to give kudos to creativity however I would have not added the filler panel in the rear and raised the rear bumper- show some exhaust pipes. Sorry, that's my car kustomizing genes in me having to comment.

Posted by: 914to6 Jan 24 2004, 03:25 PM

Here's my first post and a follow up to some you may have seen from Eddie914.

I'm partnering with Eddie K and Mark S. Pix of our mostly white track car were posted a couple of days ago on this thread.

What we think is that it's a '71 with some unknown flares (fronts are just Dzused on, rears are glassed in), '77 2.7L w/ webers.

Suspension is Konis w/ unknown springs, 911 front struts etc, SC brakes around w/ SS lines. Fuchs copies, 225/245 tires. Battery relocated to front.

This is intended as a dedicated track car. We (Eddie, Mark S and I ) are BMW guys (e28s, late '80s 5 series) and like sport driving on road courses. We aren't racers. This was a CA autocross car in past years.

We're looking to install turn signals up front, replace the headlights (possibly without the motors for weight and because it will seldom see night driving. Any recommendations will be appreciated.) and license it so we don't have to trailer it all the time.

The wiring is intact, but fussy. Some gremlins need to be exorcised.

It's rough cosmetically and we'll address that to some degree. The nose cone has to go, the trunks and cockpit need to be dressed up. The paint is flat and drips are evident. The doors have a little celulite but we never intended to show it. We've removed a black 928 style rear spoiler, which is for sale.

Full fluid replacement, throttle cable replacement, fuel pump relocation motor mounts, switches, latches and......

Safety belts need updating and we're removing the rear padding and remounting the seats.

Considering increasing the roll bar to a cage.

We have it in W. Seattle, I live in Magnolia and Mark is in Gig Harbor.

Is there a Seattle area group that ever gets together?

Walt

Posted by: Bleyseng Jan 24 2004, 03:57 PM

Yep!

Hi Walt, (good to meet you)
There is a local group that meets couple of times a year just for fun. Last year we met at the Alki Bakery (had 20 914's! -search the site here for pics/threads) and later in the summer, we met and went for a drive all around and up to Woodinville for a liquid lunch at the Red Hook Brewery. We also met for a metalsworking lesson by John Kelly on Korijos 914 which we flared the fenders on.
The rest of the time we meet at the Bremerton track once a month for AX with the Porchse Club.

Its about that time of year to start talking about meeting for a breakfast I guess. I will PM the other do'ers to see whats up.

This is a '73 2.0 that I bought off Ebay last summer with 89k miles from the original owner. Ran like a champ. The only thing I did to the engine, besides routine maintenance, was to install electronic ignition. I've gotten it up to 112mph a few times on the flats where I live at 7000 feet elevation (can't seem to get over 112). Figure I done did good...

yup, the tool box is the costco special, its worked out very well, you tend to see a lot of greasy finger prints though :)
Anyway the Avatar is a pic i grabbed from someones 914 web site like 6 years ago. It looks like a pro photographer pic scanned from one those cheesy car calenders but who knows?
As soon as the weather is better and my distributor comes back from the recurve shop i promise to put up some better photos. Thanks for the compliments.

Here's my ride--per Bleyseng's request. '73 2.0 with injection. Pic is not real recent. I have since restored a set of original 4 lug Mahle's and have them on the car with some 205 series tires. Really looks nice with the OEM wheels. Next cosmetic change is to ditch the crappy mirrors some PO installed and put the OEM mirrors on it.

Gint,

I had it dipped in Chicago. I believe it was a RediStrip (or similar). The unit body came out much better than we feared.... That is one of two cars we bought for $400.00 (The other was cut into small enough pieces that the garbage man took it away peice by piece. It was mostly rust.)

I am not new to 914's. I've been around them most of my whole life and have owned/operated them for the last 20 years.

Brad Roberts,

No that was not us. The M471 option 914-6 in the KC area was a friend of ours. The car was silver and had the flares and all. It was supposed to be original but these days one never knows.... The owner believed it was original so I guess that was good enough for me. It went for a lot of money.

That owner, Doug M, is a member of KCPCA and does club racing / Drivers Ed. events. He is a fellow instructor and a good guy. He is more into 911's though. He races a white one with black "dalmation" spots on it.

Our flared 914-6 is a conversion from a 1974 2.0 it has been a track only car for the last 16 years.

Posted by: Brad Roberts Feb 27 2004, 12:25 AM

Thanks John. His car was actually one of the last 4 M471's sold in the USA. It was one of the last 2 silver cars to be sold from the Art Bunker dealership in KC. I know where the other car is.

Brad,

I just read the rest of your post and no, I have never considered putting a v8 in a 914. The poor little trans would never hold up under hard use. Heck, we have broken the teeth off of about five (5) fourth (4th) gear sets in 901 boxes in the race car with our 3.2L engine. Never any other gears, just fourth......

What happened to the original fiberglass front?
Was it a Imsa type?(I don't really know what's it called)

Posted by: Eddie914 Mar 18 2004, 10:37 AM

We are not sure about the source of the rear fiberglass fender flairs and the front fiberglass fenders. I'll check through the receipts and see if I can find anything. The previous owner attached the rears with screws, and then bonded and blended. We have subsequently cut away as much steel as possible using a plama cutter (without melting the fiberglass ... too much). The PO (previous owner) installed the front FG fenders over the existing steel fenders after the steel fender lips were cut away. They were held on with Dzus fasteners. The fit was pretty poor since a lot of metal was left along the mounting surfaces. I cut away ALL of the steel front fenders. I left the door jambs, rocker panels, hood lips, and bumper mounts. We then mounted Dzus fastener angle brackets to the jambs and bumper mounts. I did the easy part ... making all the sparks with the plasma cutter. Mark and Walt did the tough part ... fitting and refitting and refitting the fenders and mounting brackets.

Since we are not using the pop-up headlights, the 916 type bumper works well with the OEM for lights. I will the try the Auto Zone driving lights ... they have got to better than 30 year old foglights.

We still have the IMSA style front end and might use it if the 916 bumper allows the front end to get too light at speed. Any idea where we can get the rubber lip to add to the bototm of the spoiler?

We'll get some pics posted of the mounting.

Thanks

Eddie

exactly what i have been thinking about.

not rubber, but FG instead. i'm planning on getting a donor FG front spoiler with a nice lower lip and cut that off and attach it to the bottom of the 916 bumper. it'll even have room for brake cooling intakes ...

Andy, because this car will see dual duty (street/track) we think the rubber will survive longer than a fiberglass lip...

Any idea where we can find such rubber??
IIRC some of the '80's mopars used it and maybe even some Mitsu's from that era.

Posted by: Jeroen Mar 18 2004, 08:06 PM

Why not use Dzus fastners on the bumper as well?
That way you can swap the 916 and IMSA bumpers for street or track duty

Otherwise, the rubber lip/spoiler from an impact bumper 911 might work

cheers,

Yes, it is "The Frog", originally from California, now resides near Indianapolis in my climate-controlled garage cool.gif

The wheels are a custom build from HSE. I have no idea what the previous owner paid for them, but as far as I know, it is the only set with 4-bolt pattern anywhere. I do get many compliments when I have the car out, and Porschephiles seem especially keen on the wheels.

Posted by: Matt Romanowski Mar 31 2004, 06:37 PM

That's my car, but it's not me. That was a family (the guy and kid - there was another brother too) from Maryland that were autocrossing a six in my class. They are seroius autocrossers.

Matt,
Was the -6 those brothers were running the white open car or the red car? I hear the white one was wreaked on it's was home. The truck and trailer went off the road or something, but have never confirmed it. But as I remember it now the white one was from Ohio.

Posted by: Matt Romanowski Apr 1 2004, 05:39 AM

They were in the read one. The two brothers and father actually drove it. Very good autocrossers.

Here is my 74LE that the PO painted some sort of white and did some bad fiberglass work on the front end. All the glass front did was let water into the front trunk and rot away the floor, good up grade. I hope to start the bodywork in a few weeks and have it painted by fall, I will post pics then.

Welcome to the club!

Gint, Thanks. I've wanted a 914 for 20 years, long over due to own one. driving.gif

The car could use a resto, it's got a bit of rust here and there but it's pretty solid as it is. Hell hole is totally solid. Crappy paint job over the original lime green. The lime shows through rock chips, poor taping and around the gas tank. I'll be painting it the original factory color or something close if it isn't available. It's originally a 1.8 but now has an injected 2.0 just rebuilt. I'm getting the FI 1.8 engine as well. Will rebuild that someday and keep it in storage.

Lots of nice 914s here. Can't wait to meet a few of you from the northeast.

They are revolutions, the paint isn't great on them, cleaning and repaintng the (possibly with silver rims and black centers) is on my to do list as well.

It's a 75, I was thinking of putting the small bumpers on, but these are kind of growing on me.

The only tricky part is the orientation of the flywheel sensors.
Drivability is exellent with mileage in the mid 20's.

Hi John!! I saw that you also had one, nice!! I like to have a car that can out perform AC Cobra, GT40 and still looks like a shopping car for old lady´s...
To pitty my car lacks roadholding and brakes but it comes next winter.
The engine is very nice Chevy 350 with aftermarket cylinder heads, headers Torker 2 manifold, Holly 780.
It puts out 288hp on the rear wheels wich is great it`s really really fast from 70-240km/h but i need a porsche 930 gearbox than it would be more suited for the engine and I could try to find som more hp.
Fun to talk to you!

Pitbull,

I wouldn't worry about the stock 901 transaxle just yet. My engine makes about 400hp and has been bolted to a 901 for about two years now. Just don't shock the trans during gear changes and keep the dragstrip burnouts to a minimum. You'll be surprised at what the 901 will take.

I have a friend running a v8 with at least 400 hp who is sitting on several spare 901 transaxles. He has abused his gearbox intentially without a failure. While tuning for maximum performance just last month, he did about 30 hard pulls from 0-100 mph. His hard pulls involve launching from a stop, burning the rear tires (huge tires too since he has flares) without failure.

The 930 box is better suited for a v8 due to the gear ratio but is very expensive here in the USA. I've heard it costs about $6000 to bolt one into a 914. I plan to change the gears in my 901 one of these days and may go for the 930 if a deal ever comes around.

Your plan to upgrade brakes and rubber is a good one. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

John

Posted by: MrPitbull May 3 2004, 12:39 AM

Hi John!!
Yes the 901 gear box is quiet okey!! As I told you I gor 288hp on the rear wheels thats DIN HP that means about 360-370 Sae hp in the engine...so it seems to work pretty good!
But as you mentioned the reatio is much better in the 930 gearbox and i really need it...*L*
I was going to drive 300km yesterday but after 100km the hmm whats it could...the black rubber that runs the water pump...cant remeber whats it could in english ahh it was broken...so the car went back on a trailer and I picked up my 928GT instead...
But next weekend Im going to fix it!!

Posted by: seanery May 3 2004, 08:01 AM

Pitbull, sorry about your luck. That's called a belt in english. You guys that have english as a 2nd language surprise me, you do so well that I forget english isn't your first language.

Posted by: MrPitbull May 3 2004, 08:44 AM

Thanx I know what it´s cold but it slipped my mind....
I got belts on all my Harleys as well and on all cars...And the belt to the supercharager on our SuperTwin top fuel is the one that brakes if you dont change it...
So my world is full of belts and belt drives...but this time I lost the word...*L*

It´s really hard sometimes when its not the first language, like when you would like to talk about engine parts, or when you got something special on your mind.
But remeber also it´s a lot harder to write than to talk.
So if we meet you would understand everything and I would understand everything as well.

But the poeple in Sweden are pretty good at english, so are the other people from scandinavia as well.
But germans arnt so good, if I would like to buy a car in germany it allways really hard to understand each other. And my only geramn skills is the one I have learned from all the german porno movies...Ich komme, Spritze Hans...*LOL*

All I can say it's real pretty and clean (no one throws their crap on the street) out there and the people are friendly and hospitable.
And yes, most speek english very well, which is good, 'cause the only Swedish I know is "Knäckebrod" biggrin.gif

That´s a bit strange because I wonder sometimes what you guy know about a small country like us....Swedish erotica is one thing that I have heard before and that all girl are blonde and very pretty, and that they are very easy to get in to bed...*LOL*

But what more do you know about us??

One of your more famous exports - The Swedish Bikini Team.

He he Swedish bikini team...never heard of it!! Thats great, but I havent been reading so many Playboy´s in my life (we have better magazine´s over here)
But actually i have been at Hugh Heffners Playboy Mansion!!! We was suppose to drive the Gumball 3000 two years a go but we had so many problems with insurance for the car, they would like to have 15000 Dollar for insuring the car for 2 months 1 months in US and 1 month´for the boat trip to Us. But Maxmillion is a good friend of mine that are the manager for Gumball, so he invited us to the party at Playboy Mansion and thats an offer that no one can resist so we went over and had a hell of a nice party!!

Here's our 914, towed home. She's got a siezed 2.0L and all the options but intermittent wipers. We stopped in South Bend, IN at the Tire Rack to get some 195/60/15's. They're great people over there (plug!)
In a couple weeks I'll be pulling the motor and let's see if you guys and gals out there can guess the problem. The previous owner said "It just quit" I asked with a bang or a crunch? He said "no, it just stopped"

This is in the hardest braking zone on the course between turns 6 & 7 at putnam park. The dangley thing in the front turned out to be a piece of rubber that got knocked loose when I went agro going into 4. You can't really tell, but the track was like ice at this time. It had rained off and on throughout the weekend, but just enough to bring the oil to the surface without washing it off. It would dry very quickly 2-3 laps once it stopped but when it was sprinkling it was treachorous.

Zambezi is darker, looks more like British Racing Green.

Guess I need to post our 914 and project. I had always been attacked to the 914/mid engine concept. Bought the car in 96 from friends going through a divorce in a package with a Benz 300E. PO had the car rebuilt by an apparent aircraft mechanic. Still had problems but cosmetics were nice. Drove the teener home to Chicago from Kennebunkport Maine. First winter, the boys attacked the minimal residual rust. Going through a revision now. Engine still with the McNutt brothers at Autocraft Engines.

I'm pretty sure that it's zambezi. The last time I checked the color charts for 73 zambezi was the only one that came close to it. Was willow green available in 73?

except for the hood the paint is origional, but maybe not for long...

Posted by: 7391420 May 19 2004, 03:10 PM

Just checked the paint codes, yes it is zambezi, willow green was only offered for 71-72, zambezi was 73-74, and a few earlier years.

me too. Does it stay cool?

Posted by: exc911ence May 24 2004, 12:23 PM

The car actually stays really cool. It's got a big 911 oil cooler and electric fan set-up in the front right fender and will idle in traffic for hours if required. It normally stays at about 1/4 the way up the temp gauge in normal driving, although I had it up to 1/2 way yesterday during an indicated 120mph sprint on the highway (kids, don't try this at home!). The P/O used to race the car at Portland and he said that it never even came close to getting too hot on the track. The only downside to the pancake cooling set-up that I've found is that stray FOD in the engine compartment always works its way into the low-mounted cooling fan and gets shot upwards into the bottom of the engine lid... I have a nice dent from a cooling shroud screw that went awol on me... sad.gif

As long as that's an 88 (looks like an 86 though) it's ok. I'd go for an 88 GT. I've heard of a northstar V8 being stuffed inside. The suspension on the 88 (last year) was much much improved, so I wouldn't be embarrassed at all. I've spent many hours & miles behind the steering wheel of one of those cars.

It's an 86 all right. The 88's are actually going up in value these days and finding one isn't easy. The car is fine as my daily driver (although I've been having tire balancing issues with the new BFG Radial TAs I put on it... not the car's fault) but it really has no personality compared with my present and past Porsches. Am I surprised? Not really. It's great if you want a reliable car that you don't have to think about... kinda the opposite of a 914, eh? cool_shades.gif It does have nice power from the V6 though, sort of like a 914-6 on a budget!

That said, im still gonna put one in. The car was really great as a baseline, I really couldnt be happier for the first time out. Will post some trunk and engine shots when i get them.

Well it took a while but what a collection of gorgeous cars. I thought my car was clean but now i am not so sure.

Anyway, this is mine. Great car but for now she is for sale.

Hey Cobalt,
Give us some information on your sale.

Hi,
I'm a newbie and I have tried repeatedly to add a photo of my 914. I keep getting a error message stating that the page is unavailable. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for the help.

your image size must be jpg, gif or bmp and it must be less than 300kb. Also, DO NOT PREVIEW POST.

Posted by: bburke914 May 26 2004, 08:05 PM

You are right! The file size was too large. I saved it down but it still was too large. My car is a track car only and I am working on a V8 conversion. I bought the kit here on the classified section. Thanks, Noah!

I have been getting mixed reviews on the roof scoop. What does the group think?

Hi Noah,

First of all, welcome to 914world.com !

Re: pictures sizes. Try to change the size to 800pixels wide (max) before you post them

Re: roof-scoop. I sorta like them (if they are functional), but yours looks a bit large. Maybe you can trim it down (to get some kind of GT1 look). Just MHO...

Your car looks like a fun project! Keep us posted on your progress

Hey Cobalt,
Give us some information on your sale.

The car is a 1974 914 2.0l, Marathon Blue/Black. I am the second owner. The car is fully loaded. I did a complete ground up restoration on her between 1996 and 1997. Every nut bolt and screw was removed inspected cleaned, rebuilt or replaced. The car is in stock appearance. All wearable items have been replaced, Including Pistons, cylinders, seals, gaskests, sensors, bearings, you name it. The interior is original and clean with all original carpets, including the visor mirror cover.

The list of new and rebuilt parts is quite extensive. I spared no expense when restoring this beauty, right down to the custom made 911 style cast aluminum crested caps on the polished and color matched Fuchs.

I would post in the classifieds but after 8 attempts of writting the perfect add only to have it claim it could not find the server and loose the entire post, I gave up.

use a program like photoshop, irfanview or paint shop pro and make the image between 600 and 800 wide. then save it out as a jpg with quality of 75% or so and it should be fine.

Posted by: Chris H. May 26 2004, 08:33 PM

Looks very nice Cobalt! I've always been amazed at how subtle the blue is in Marathon Blue. In most pics is looks silver. Very hard to tell them apart.

And the asking price is.....?

Posted by: DuckRyder May 26 2004, 08:45 PM

If you want me to shrink the photo, seen me the original file at full resolution and I'll fix it up.

Thanks Duckryder for the offer. I'm kind of hardheaded and would like to figure this out. Once I install my fire breathing V8, full roll cage and nice paintjob I would like to be able to post pictures for everyone to see. I have attached a test photo without the roof scoop.

Ben, I think thats a sweet looking car you have there. Looks mean just sitting there. A full race 914? Heck, go with the scoop. But If it where me, I would have made the scoop a little less bulky, thinner to say (it looks like the fiberglass is an inch thick).

Its intimidating, keep it.

Besides its gona be a V8 right? (btw, I had my eye on that kit you bought...) V8 hot rods had big old scoops just like that! Fits perfectly.

Andrew

PS.
Dont paint it, give it a darker coat of grey primer.. I love dark grey primer cars. They just look mean.

Posted by: MadeRight May 26 2004, 10:36 PM

Okay, here's mine. As the family has grown, I just could not bear to get rid of the 914, so with some careful changes ;-), things are looking like they might work for a while.

Roger Sheridan has one too, he's routing the air through a big hose through the rear window into the engine comp on his car. works great for him!

Hey Burke, do you have both the ducktail and some sort of aftermarket wing? How is the aftermarket piece being mounted? Some of the folks here can weigh in on the effectiveness on a given wing setup. What kind of racing are you looking to do? Make sure you are meeting at least one sanctioning body's rules for engine and chasis setup if you want to compete somewhere. If its just for DE's then do whatever you want! Like the roof scoop idea, but dude that things huge! rolleyes.gif

Thanks for the compliments.

I agree it is very hard to get a good shot of this color without it looking silver. The sun plays tricks with the camera.

I am asking $8900.00. Which may or may not be pricey. When you think about all of the new clamps, hoses, screws, and original replacement parts not to mention the time that went into each and every aspect of this car, I think it is quite reasonable.

She drives and shifts like new and should give its new owner another thirty years of pleasure. I get as much attention in this car as I do in my 94 turbo 3.6. I love it when the young kids see you coming and scream nice car. It's great to see the new generations appreciate something that was made 20+ years before they were born. Unfortunatly being a two seater she does not get driven often. I have a five year old that doesn't like it if he is not included in the ride.

If anyone has any interest or knows someone who might, I am looking for someone who will appreciate all of the effort put into her and has a garage to keep her safe let me know or contact me at anthonyAMA@optonline.net, I do not check this address often so please be patiant for a response.

Great car to learn on. you should get lots of fun and enjoyment out of seeing it all come together.

Looks rust free.

Posted by: DipShit May 27 2004, 11:56 AM

Not rust free. Typical battery tray and door jamb rust. Hope to get the welding done in a few weeks.

I manage an aircraft paint shop, so the paint will be Sherwinn Williams Acry-Glo with a clear coat - can't wait to get it painted. Just picked up some 5-bolt fuchs this week. I have a new interior kit and will put the 1.7 back in and run it for awhile before I attempt the engine rebuild.

Thanks, it was quite a few hours to get it in that kind of shape! The towhooks are actually hollow - welded c-channel, flat stock and a pipe. Wanted to tie them directly into the caging, and decided to go with a unique location. Unfortunately, actually needed the front hook last weekend sad.gif

It was a 2.4 with about 200 hp, and in all fairness - the driver was really conservative and not pushing that hard! cool.gif My car is pretty damn light though, and there is quite a bit more weight in the 6 drivetrain. Trust me, if they had wanted to leave me behind it wouldnt have been much of an effort. That green car (out of massachusetts I believe) was very nicely done. Lots of trick suspension and design work. Wish i had taken some close up pics!

Slivel - nice car, love 914 race trim in black...

Posted by: thesey914 Jul 13 2004, 06:19 AM

1973914 ...200 HP is not too shoddy either smile.gif . I feel the need to see a spec sheet on your car...engine, suspension, weight etc. The front wings (fenders) are one piece F/glass?

Posted by: 1973914 Jul 13 2004, 06:41 AM

Engine = 2.4 with 0 HP blink.gif , front patrick cooler vented like the factory GTs, euro pipes with jet hot, EGT and CHT guages to monitor engine conditions
Suspension = Koni adjustables all around, 19mm Sway in front, no rear, 200lb springs, A struts, boxster brakes in front, carrera brakes rear (m-wide),vented rotors all around
Weight - havent weighed it yet, but we are guessing about 2k, will know for sure sunday
Body - fiberglass all around except for the doors, fenders are one piece and dzuesed for easy of adjustments, cleaning, and replacement if needed or wanted.
Chasis - gt kit, long kit, tubing out to the suspension areas, any rust is gone

Really should have just done a 6!

Here's a picture of my yellow '70 1.7. I bought this car just about 3 weeks ago as seen. So far I've added the front rubber pad, and cleaned it up a bit. So far it works okay but needs a tune up, a 2nd gear synchro (and probably a slider and dogteeth as well), and a little rust repair. This is really a temporary car for me until I get my project car finished (see next post).

Here's the project car. Its an original silver '74 1.8 (will become a 2.0 when I finish rebuilding the free 2.0 I scored a wocuple weeks ago). I picked up this roller for free several months ago and while it has a couple of issues, the body is straight, there's essentially zero rust, and when I'm done with it, it ought to be pretty nice. I'm using parts off of my first 914 (AKAVW) which was a 1973 that succumbed to the rust gods. At the moment I'm looking for a place to do the blasting of my suspension components before I powder coat them.

Just thought I would slip in another picture of my 914 before it hits the paint shop. Flares are on, got all the pieces. Next photo will be a painted one. I am not a body man, so I did what I could and will let a pro finish it up for me. I think my work is about 90%, not 100%. Next will come putting in the 6 which I will post some pics of as well.

Hi All from "Downunder",
I've been lurking for a little while and have only just looked through the SEVENTY EIGHT pages wacko.gif of pics.

I've had my '72 for about 3 years but progress is slow sad.gif

Bought it complete less motor, already converted to RHD (we drive on the correct side here smile.gif ). I had the gearbox converted to side shift and bought a '70 911T (2.2) motor that has new P&C and (apparently) "S" cams.

There was some rust evident at the guard/cowl area which needs repair. After discovering several resprays I decided to go back to bare metal (stupid or what!) and found some more cancer in the front that had been repaired with bog (bondo).

Apart from that it has a not-perfect repair after a hit in the RH rear and the rest is very good!

cheers

GAZ

Hi all,

New to list. Recently acquired car. PO is from SF Bay Area. Do not know much about history of car. Car was originally green and is on what I think is it's second red paint job. Car has a 3.2 with Webers. Sideshifter, S alum calipers, adj Konis, 7" and 8" with the rear being 285/45-15s. car has steel flares, GT front mounted oil cooler with ducting. Very nice bolt in roll bar. VIN is 9140430892. Car is straight, has had battery repositioned in trunk, some minor rust repair at orig batt location and under drivers seat in pan. The car has had some frame strengthening work performed but it does not look like any of the kits I have seen advertised. The reinforcement consists of gussets and addtional triangulation tubing around rear trailing arm mounting points. The paint is very nice but very, very red with a strange sort of yellow strip on the front hood. The car came with the gloss black roof as shown as well as a red roof painted to match the car. I will need to tone it down some as it is a little to boy racer for my taste.

I have driven the car about five times and am just starting to get into it. The car is very tight and fast but needs to have the carbs pulled apart and cleaned as it has sat for awhile. My plan is to get everything working well and continue detailing out the car. The car evidently has not been driven much since it was painted as the sideview mirror fell off and bounced into the bay the second time I drove the car. ohmy.gif

Hope you all will put up with my questions as I will have many. unsure.gif This is my second 914. The first I had in college and I rolled it into a little ball. What was left of the car I buried. That was 20 years ago. I plan to use the car for weekend drives and a few local autocrosses.

Latest Picture of my latest 914 project. Just drove it back from the paint shop yesterday. They did a so-so job. Right behind the front fenders, they block sanded too far down and now you can see where the fiberglass flares are bonded to the car. Ugh. I will get that fixed next spring. For now, I want to get this 914 back on the road so my wife and I can enjoy some PCA events before summer is gone! I will post another more completed picture in a few weeks.

I plan on hitting that this weekend if I can get the rest of the body squared away. Part of the hold up is waiting on some parts for a couple other cars I am working on. I have turned away other work so I can finish my car for the next few weeks.

Posted by: seanery Aug 14 2004, 09:39 PM

Shannon,
do you worry about using the radio, lights, air blower etc...while driving. Is there enough range/power to do that stuff and not hurt your mileage?

Posted by: sgomes Aug 15 2004, 12:07 AM

Sean - Great question. Actually that stuff doesn't add up too much compared to all the power running to the motor. Let's say I'm running about 20kw to the motor - the 100 watt stereo (yeah right! cool.gif ) doesn't really factor in. Basically I still have a separate 12 volt battery for all the 12volt appliances. It could drive all that stuff by itself. In fact for safety reasons (like running hazard lights and headlights) it's important to have a separate 12volt battery if the traction pack detonates or something. unsure.gif

The 914 is I think by far the best car to convert to electric. The aerodynamics kick ass compared to most current production cars! It has space for all the lead. It's a chick magnet. What else could you want!

The range really really really depends on your driving habbits. Drive like all you auto-x guys and you'd probably get about 30-40 miles. Drive like there is a cop following you.... you can get close to 100 miles. I usually fall somewhere in between. A couple of green light drag races on the way to work followed by some nice highway cruzin and I can get about 60 miles. The weirdest part is being able to take my foot off the go pedal and coast for miles like I have cruise control! (no compression to slow you down!)

Hi guys,

I should have joined a long time ago. I've been a 914 guy for many years and am presently building a Euro 3.6 (993) engined, 915 Vellios trannied, GT2 PCCB front braked 914. The car is being built from the last bolt up and from chemically-dipped bare metal up. It's not quite street-ready, but I have driven it once.

Sorry for my ignorance, but the pictures I have are not on a website. How do I post one? The IMG button brings up a box that asks me for a web address (I have a Mac running OS X). I have MANY pictures and I love to share them.

I don't distill, I ferment. My best friend here owns a microbrewery.

Anyway, that's the oil tank. Five gallons of Mobile 1, thank you very much. And yes, that's $100 per oil change, not including the TWO filters. I've done EVERYTHING but the paint and still have almost $50,000 in it. It's going to financially kill me, but I was hooked on 914s at age 12.

I just wanted to say hello. I'm very excited to finally post. I own an awesome original 914-6. It's been featured in several magazines before we purchased it. It was made by the owner of Kinesis wheels and sports one-of-a-kind red wheels. I'll post some pictures. It has a 3.2 L 911 engine making around 250 hp. It has a custom exhaust by Midwest Eurosport that sounds amazing. We haven't taken the engine fully apart, so we're not exactly sure what mods were done in there. It has factory flares, koni shocks, AJ racing seats, Simpson harnesses. It is an great car. If I could post a video of it, that would be very cool, but I haven't figured out how. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Wow, nice job digging up all those old pictures. I've seen a couple pictures, the ones on the Kinesis website and I have a copy of the magazine article at home. We've made some changes to the car since we bought it though. It wasn't properly taken care of for a while and the wheels now have permanent stains on them, but we might get them re-anodized sometime soon. The old Supertrapp exhaust was replaced with a much much better custom exhaust. Again, if someone can tell me how to post a video, I will. I have a great video of it starting up. I also have tons of in-car video from Gingerman and other tracks. I have much better pics too, but they are too big, and I couldn't post them.

Hey Ben,

I may have a build sheet on that Engine somewhere around here. AJ built it in San Diego (I believe). The owner at that time (up in Canada somewhere) was trying to sell it to me.

When I was a Chicagoian Brian and George did all the work on my car. Good guys. I got my factory Recaro RS seats from them... and the radio that's currently in my 914-6.

Cool ride.

Posted by: ben14142001 Sep 1 2004, 11:27 AM

Yes, that is guy we bought it from. I think he is from Ontario, not exactly sure. But, Brian and George are awesome. They've helped alot. We also belong to the Autobahn Country Club that is opening in Joliet. Brian and George bought a large section to build a garage on. It should be loads of fun. If you can dig up those engine sheets that would be great. I'd like to know what's inside. Thanks.

Ben,

Looked for the build sheets but they were on another computer that I turned back in to the office. Gone for good I believe.

The guy in Canada should have PDF's or you can contact Alan Johnson Porsche in San Deigo. I'm sure they would have details and/or remember the $19k rebuild! Everything on that motor was new. The Webers came out of a box. They had pictures of the build in process...

Good Luck.

It's a country club, except instead of golfing, you race. Link: http://www.autobahncountryclub.net/ This should give all the details. It looks fantastic. Take a looksy at the site, it should answer all your questions. The paint on the car used to be better. We've gotten it repainted already. Some of previous owners did not care for it as well as they should of. Sad really. But, it looks great after a wax. Oh yes, btw, I'm looking for another set of the mirrors that are on the car. They are the same ones that are in the pictures. The driver's side one fell off and I cant find new ones. So, if anyone has any lying around or something similar I would be very interested. Thanks

WOW.....Hey ABC914, Your first name wouldn't happen to be AL would it? Some parts of your bahia red 914 sure looks like the same car I knew way back in the 70's when I was a NNJR member. If so, it sure has been a long time since we last had a chat and your car still looks great, even with the drastic upgrades. By the way, I still have my tangerine 914-6 that I had back in the 70's. You may remember me better by my phoenix red '73 2 liter which I sold to buy my 6 through Joe Reid back in 1978.

ABC914,

I'm curious to know what master cylinder you're using.

I like the 986 tranny. How difficult was it to make it work?

Oh, nice car! I, too, am hoping to attract the attention of Excellence when mine is finished.

Joe

Posted by: ABC914 Sep 3 2004, 05:23 PM

Was it difficult? How about 1½ years work? Nothing fits. Adapter plate had to be created between engine and trans. Support had to be created. New pedal set configured (none of the connections fit). Tone ring added to drive speedo. Mercedes Benz 23mm M/C works great with 996 TT brakes. Excellent feel and pedal travel.

Was it worth it? Definitely. Could not be better.

I especially like the look of the fender flares. Makes the car almost voluptuous, takes away some of the boxiness of the shape. I like it anyway.

Thanks! biggrin.gif

Posted by: Series9 Sep 3 2004, 06:11 PM

ABC914,

Thanks for the info. I have a pair of GT2 (6-piston PCCB Brembos) on the front of my car and ended up with a softer pedal than I wanted. I will probably change to a 23mm M/C as well.

For me, I've always LOVED the factory flairs, which are on my car in steel. However, I do think yours look great and can really appreciate the time it must have taken to make them look that good.

I have a 915 Vellios conversion. The 915 is very strong, but I'm a little jealous of how nicely yours must shift.

I can drive mine around the block at this point, but it will likely not be totally finished until next summer. If Excellence shoots your car, let me know how it goes. I'd like to know who to contact.

Thanks,
Joe

914RS/Joe,

I appreciate your comments. And, after looking back at your pictures, I really appreciate what you're doing with your car. A tad more serious than my effort. clap56.gif

And it looks really terrific. The work looks meticulous.

As for the transmission, we look at all sorts of options, G50, Wevo sequential, 915, etc. Either too big, too heavy, too long, or, well, you get the picture. The Boxster trans seemed like the perfect answer IF we could get it to fit. My shop did a great job and now I'm as happy as a clam (if a clam ever tried to drive a stick - we know they all drive tiptronics).

I'll keep you posted with respect to Excellence, but I know in general, magazine lead times are unbelievable, so it could be quite a while before anything appears in print.

Lou, they're metal. The craftsman cut out the wheel openings, added pizza slices of steel to flare the openings, then welded back on the original wheel opening profile. Truly master work. All steel, little Bondo to smooth surfaces.

Posted by: jim912928 Sep 30 2004, 11:49 AM

yes they are boxster 16" rims. I have Michelin 205's on them all the way around. As in all 914's..the rear fender clearance is never the same on each side. I have a 7mm spacer on the passenger rear so the tire doesn't rub the inner fender well.

Nice thing about boxster 16" rims is you can get them pretty cheap!

Posted by: phantom914 Sep 30 2004, 11:58 AM

Jim,

Very nice car. What mirrors did you put on?


Andrew

Posted by: jim912928 Sep 30 2004, 12:01 PM

911 "flag" style mirrors. Trick to those since they mount lower is to make sure you also get the 911 support bracket that goes on the inside of the doors for strength.

Jim

Posted by: Porsche Rescue Sep 30 2004, 12:40 PM

Forgot to ask about width. Boxsters have wider rears I think. Are yours all the same width? Fronts from Boxster? Really like the look on a 914.

Posted by: jim912928 Sep 30 2004, 07:33 PM

Jim,

16X7's will fit perfectly all around with the offset that the rear of the boxsters have. Unfortuntately I have 16X7's and 16X6's. On that pic the 16X7's are on the front and fit perfect with no spacers. The 16X6's are on the rear and I have just over 1" clearance on each side on the outer lip. As soon as I find another pair of 16X7's i'll swap out the 6". If you get a full set...you can put the 16X6's on the front but you'll need spacers to bring it out some (i think it is about 15mm difference in the offsets of the front/back boxster rims).

Or you can do what I did, which I've been told is fine as long as you keep the same size tire front/back.

Posted by: markb Sep 30 2004, 09:30 PM

I LOVE your yellow slope nose!! Is that a kit or did you do your own fabricating? Some day when (if) I grow up, I want a 914 just like that one!!! Oh, and more pics would be very nice too. Got ant from the front?

I will post more pics and I will measure the mirrors as soon as I'm done with my brake caliper rebuilds (all 4 calipers including the inner/outer adjustment seals!), pedal cluster rebuild and clutch cable replacement. I'm on a mission to have these done for the Fall Foilage!

Thanks, I thought all I had to really focus on was two new Jack Posts and a new rear trunk panel from AA, the car has never been in any wrecks and is in great condition, then I joined this club and learned about the "Hell Hole". That ended up changing things. I've been following Micahels thread on his project pretty close. I don't think I will need to go quite that far, but, we'll see. I have since bought the Inner Longitudes Stiffening Kit from Engman and a Chassis Stiffening Kit, etc. been following the threads on the Fender Flairs too. smile.gif

ematulac - a couple questions about your fine-looking car...

Its a 74 but has 75-76 bumpers? Were they updated or are they original?

Out of curiosity, what is your VIN?

Posted by: ematulac Oct 29 2004, 11:39 AM

I purchased the car from a woman who didn't have a whole lot of information on the car. The car was registered as a '74, and I just assumed that the bumpers had been upgraded when the slant nose conversion was done.

The VIN is 4742918391.

It's a nice Friday afternoon so I took my car a couple miles away from the house for a few pictures. I bought it two years ago - it was a real POS - and I totally rebuilt it with a V8 conversion. I sold my first 914 in 1989 and always wanted to have another one when I had a little more time, more money, and a bigger garage. So I bought a rusted, collision-damaged blue 74 fairly-cheap, and here's what it looks like now:

It's a great car to drive. There are still things left to do, like installing the A/C and heater, but I like driving it so much now it's hard to do work on it.

Thanks! I like to take it off-roading in the desert laugh.gif But seriously, I'll need to get better adjustable-perch rear shocks someday to lower the rear. I could bring the front down some. But I have 15s on the front and 16s on the back. I got the Fuchs for free, but maybe some day I'll come across another pair of 16s to balance it out.

Paul,
My present teener is I believe my 8th. The first one hooked me. I should have kept that one, but at the time I also had a 69 911S, a 57 Corvette, a chevy company car and something else that I can't remember right now and something had to go. I guess I've just been trying to go back in time since. The 914-6 had under 40,000 miles at the time. Oh, by the way, I've been in Tampa for 22 years and have had 34 cars since. I am a NUT.

Yes it is pretty filthy - and pretty reliable. The weak link is that I'm still running a 901 box and with the 3.4 liter twin plug am stressing the box a lot. I will do a thorough cleaning when I finish the list of off-season stuff. The first whole car shot is on page 77 but that is the old decal scheme. Here is the car with the new decals.

Greetings! I am new to the 914Club board as a poster, but have had this '76 2.0 since 1998. It is basically stock with add-on AC and some other accessories from previous owners.

I am the fourth owner since it was purchased new at Carrousel in MN, but it lived in CA and AZ for most of its life until I discovered it back again in MN. It came with me when I was transferred out east, and we have enjoyed using it to cruise through NJ and Eastern PA.

I am still trying to make her "just right," and will be working on several improvement projects in 2005.

Thanks for all the great information on this forum! IPB Image

I have had the car about 6 months and it has found its short-term (yea right) perch atop jackstands. Currently I am converting to a 5-lug suspension, and doing some rust repair on the right jack point, frame and floorpan.

Posted by: cdmcse Dec 31 2004, 10:46 PM

Yea, I bought it form Premier Auto Sales in Ky (http://www.premier-autosales.com/). They are a couple of great guys (Hi Mark And Dave) and have helped me with the car more that I can ever express gratitude for. They have a nice little 914 parts car junkyard down there.

It was on Ebay, but I could never buy a vehicle without looking at it first, so I drove down and look at it and I was hooked.

I don't need a helmet 'cause my wife says I am already hard headed. IPB Image

OK Heres my 72
Spent last winter chasing out the rust. Finally got it off the hoist and on the road in late June this past year and I drove it right up until Nov 18. Still smile when I think about how nice it ran. Notice I said ran not shifted!!! Its now taking prime real estate in the garage and I'm just getting ready to try and install the tranny bushings I bought from PP. Hopefully that will remove some of "vagueness" everyone says is common with the 72's. I've been reading y'all for a year but I finally registered tonite. I guess I should have signed on as "procrastinater"

Posted by: IVGUY Jan 18 2005, 11:13 PM

No BF Goodrich COMP TA's 195 /60
I'm told I can get 205's in there but it sure would be tight.
Didnt realize until I looked at that picture that was the bad side!! I obviously still need wheel centre cap ,rear valance and jack hole plugs.

IVGUY,

Looks great and welcome. I got a 72 as well, completed a side shift tranny conversion this summer.

good luck on the bushings, it will definetly help.

apprerciate note on the 195-60's. Back when I had empi 8 spokes on my car, 195's wouldn't fit. Now that I have swapped out for 2L Fuch's, I will probably try them again. they look good in your pic.

Posted by: Jamie Jan 19 2005, 10:28 AM

I wheely(as in stock steel 15") need some advice about what will cover the center holes without going custom. I wish to keep my '73 as original as possible, and Dad threw out the original moons long ago. I repainted silver and blacked the lugs, but those center black holes bug me!

Posted by: Porsche Rescue Jan 19 2005, 10:47 AM

Look for some original hubcaps. They are out there. Might try Camp 914 among others.

lemme look....i had the story on the bird forum...screw it...snowed a little, driving and some guy in a ricer slammed on his brakes and made a quick turn into a food place. Well the sudden stop went from car to car and eventually made it back to my car, but I didn't have ABS like everyone else, and so i tried to go in the E-lane but ended up tagging some explorer right in the ass-end. the indention is caused from me hitting the trailer hitch. No damage on the explorer. GRRR. I should have stayed back 50 feet further than I was and that car shouldnt have stopped on a major road.....45-0 real fast doesnt work in 914s, at least on mine.

The engine currently does not have an oil cooler it has the C-2 filter, I have a fron toil cooler that was made from a 944 turbo intercooler. The ends where cut off and welded the fittings to wotk with the oil lines. The fit is very tight but it really works well.
I plan to reinstall the engine cooler when I find the time.

Here he is ! Picture was taken after an orientation rallye in november.
During the rallye the day counter stopped working, the brakes locked up, we didn't have enough light (H-1's), the high beam only went on when it really wanted and when it was on I couldn't get to low beam ! We finally ended the rallye after being stuck on his belly for 45 minutes on one of our "tractor trails" in the middle of nowhere. After all ... a great day with the 914 !

By the way it's a 1975 2.0 Carburated coming from the U.S.A.

Yes it will be saved 914-6's are rare over here.They were never sold here so their all imports mainly from USA.
It was last rego'd in 1982 so it has been sitting a long time,but hopefully the mechanicals haven't done much hard work.

Mine has been made into a RH driver.
The conversion is not all bad...

Looking at it now and after speaking with some people, I would probably do it myself these days and it would be better but is used to be registered as a RH drive.

I also know a guy that converts 914s to RHD - but it is pricey (he mainly builds race cars). Quality of the job is unmatched.

If you need pics or whatever, give me a yell.

Cheers

Thanks Gaz,
If I could get hold of a RH dash shell,I reckon I could figure the rest of it out.I've done a RH conversion on my Chev truck and the 914 looks like it would be a simpler deal. wink.gif

Here's my 75' at last year's Tweeks show, soon to be put up for sale to help fund another 75' I just picked up yesterday. I've only had it for 12 years so it's going to be hard letting her go (I swear I'm losing sleep over it). So much blood, sweat, and tears goes into these don't it? I told my wife that our oldest is going to need a car anyway so we might as well keep it but she says no (since my son's only 7 yrs old). If there's some interest let me know at omarvilla@officemax.com. I did the 5 lug conversion myself along with every mod/updgrade you can possibly think of. Thanks

Posted by: ovilla Mar 1 2005, 01:40 AM

Somewhere between my wife getting me the 1-800-BE-PETTY experience last year and finally driving in a 3.2 911 I kept thinking of a 914/6. When I really thought about it I finally realized that I've always wanted a 911 more for the performance that it has to offer - not really the looks. 911's are everywhere and still too expensive (and yes they are great cars) but if I could get the same performance in my 914 I don't think I would ever buy one. I enjoy the handling of the 914, which I think is more well balanced than a 911, and I like the fact that 914's are becoming about as rare as 356's (which you never see on the road anymore). So, how to bring the vision to fruition? Go ugly! I bought a cheap 914 to keep me in Porsche ownership and the game plan is to sell the Orange one to help finance a 3.0 or 3.2 swap. Then, after the drivetrain is installed, I'll take care of all of the other mods like a 5-lug conversion and everything else. Wish me luck!

Posted by: boxstr Mar 1 2005, 08:27 AM

Personally I think you have a much better starting point witht he orange car the you already have for your 3.0 or 3.2 conversion. The car has the five lug and it just needs the mechanicals.

Here is my 914-6. Way back in 1979 a good buddy of mine bought this original 6 from Rudy Klein's LA Dismantling. We got the rolling shell with no motor and got an original tailshifter 6-er trans. In went a 3.0 SC motor complete with cis. The original heater boxes went on. some bilsteins were installed along the way with a 911SC front suspension.We shared DE duties with the POC for several years and had a ton of fun. I aquired the car about 3 1/2 years ago and have made a few (ahem...) mods: Though the picture does not show its current wheels, we now have 951 8" fuchs up front with 225 Michelin sport cups, 911 8" fuchs on the rear with 245 Sport cups, Fox/Smart remote reservoir rear coil overs, my boxster brake conversion kit f/r, 23 mmm front torsions, 22mm thru body front bar, raised spindles, front oil cooler, 'glass f/r lids and bumpers, bolt in custom chrome moly cage, side shifter 901 with 904 shaft, zf ltd slip. short gears, and pump/cooler set up. The current motor is a 3.0 twin plug with 906 cams, 46 ida webers, carillo rods, headers, twin tip muffler. Interior is "RS" style with dual sparco race buckets, led conversion 911S instrument package (added an oil level sender to the oe 6 tank) and other goodies. A LOT of fun to race with on the track and play on back roads.
The attached pic is when we took the car on the Iron Bottom Rally a couple years ago- 1000 miles in 3 days with all sorts of roads- (including dirt) and weather . A top speed check was in order a couple of times- 155 indicated and there was more to be had! Gotta love it

Eric

Thanks.

It was pretty basic: 1.7 w/medium cam and 36mm Dells, stock tranny, '77 911S front suspension w/S aluminum calipers, stock rear suspension, no sway bars, 7x15 Cookies all around w/205/50-15 rubber.

The main thing it had going for it was that it was a really solid car. When I got the 3.6, it set the tone for the rest of the build. Basically, I decided that the chassis and the rest of the car had to deserve the engine.

914RS is the result.

Posted by: cdn9144 Mar 8 2005, 01:04 AM

Porsche Rescue,
The 8's in the back have 205 55 tires, the offset is 52 or 55 I am pretty sure it is 52 though. I did not have to stretch the back fenders, and the tires do not rub at all on the fender lip or the inner fender. I will try to get some more pics here in the next couple of days. I f you have any other questions let me know.
Thanks

EDIT: Did you buy them drilled or do it yourself ( unsure.gif )? Just out of curiosity, does anyone know when drilled rotors (for conversation's sake, we'll use vented rotors. Leave the solid argument out of it) end up losing their benefit because of lost surface area? As in: "Sure you get more cooling, but your pads are only rubbing on 1/4 the rotor they used to grab on to!"


Posted by: sgomes Mar 11 2005, 08:35 AM

The braking system on a car is without a doubt the most important of all. Those rotors are seriously unsafe. I'm all for making crazy mods to these wonderful cars, but compromising their saftey is not good. If you use those things please please do not drive behind me or anywhere near playgrounds.

Posted by: BIGKAT_83 Mar 11 2005, 11:04 AM

Just what would the trouble be with a solid rotor drilled. I think they are available drilled new.
Almost all motorcycles have drilled solid rotors.

screwy.gif

Posted by: sgomes Mar 11 2005, 03:50 PM

They crack. Waaaayyyyyy too much material has been removed on those rotors. Besides can you identify the problem that drilling these rotors solves? If you are having warping or heat fade then drilling is a stop gap (I doubt it really works anyway). What you would need to do is calculate the heat loading and design a real rotor. Getting out the Makita cordless and making swiss cheese out of the most important saftey feature on the car is screwy.gif

Moreover, why would putting a hole through a solid rotor do anything other than lower the heat capacity of the disk? The holes in vented rotors are to get air to the center of the disk so that you don't have warping. screwy.gif

I would say those rotors look pretty radical but how do you know they are a problem or unsafe? You need to test them and find the limit. The rear brake don't do much work anyway. If it is a autox car only, I'd run them in a heartbeat.

But than again I'm not normal.

You're on the money with the "Marathon" metallic blue. No mixture,I just think its the lighting that really affects this particular colour. And yes those are Revolutions 17x7 frt. and 17x8 rear. Probably too much for the car but I like the look and hope in the future to get a little bit more from the engine. As is totally stock 2.o with a K&N intake.

I think that the general consensus is that the suspension arm stiffening kits aren't all that effective. You should start a new thread on the forum to get more detailed information regarding your question about how to "beef" it up.....or if you even really need to with your current set-up.

Hey all,
The new Fuchs look so nice I had to add an updated photo. The wheels are HRE 17's, 11” & 12” wide. They really fit tight in the fender wells, so tight that the tires are rubbing on the inner front fenders during really tight turns. I’m not sure I can do anything about it other then limit the radius of turn?? screwy.gif I was forced into a 17” rim because these fender flares are so wide and no one produces a 15”or 16” tire that is wide enough to fill the fenders.

Don't blast!!! Blasting will make pits that are hard to sand/polish out. Polish and elbow grease. they will shine like chrome. Save the Wurth for wheels that are meant to be dull. Westerns look better with a high luster.

Aaron,

The PO was REALLY tall and with full adj. to the mirror, he was still staring at the back of the car. So he repositioned it. It is kinda nice too. Right at eye level, just have to glance over to look into it.

Posted by: MW 914 Apr 24 2005, 05:15 PM

Well....here it is. I have been checking out this site for years but just recently started posting to it. This is my 3rd 914. I have owned it for about five years. The last two years however, the car was gutted, stripped down to bare metal and redone. It just got back on the road two weeks ago. The original color was the metallic copper. It is a 75 1.8. It is all stock with the exception of the airfilter, front sway bar and 140# rear springs. While I had it apart I did the bumper conversion but now I am in search of some good rubber tops. If I can't find any I might go fiberglass instead(please feel free to contact me if you know of anyone that might help me in my search!) As you can see from the pictures I am still getting all the trim pieces put on as I find them locally, on eBay, on this site....you know the drill.

It will be lowered to a reasonable height this week and with any luck all the little pieces will be put on sooner rather than later! Look me up if you are ever in the Phoenix area.

The Car looks sweet ABC. It might look like it is sitting kinda high because of that part of the track. At lime Rock you can get two wheels of the ground on the back part of the course...going straight.

Posted by: ABC914 May 7 2005, 07:39 AM

Yes, it does look a little high, but probably for two reasons - I normally run "track" tires (P Zero C) on 18" rims, but I had to drive on street rubber for this event (BFG KDW). Second, I don't trailer, so I can't make it too low or the oil cooler becomes an oil drain. Not good. It's hard to see from the picture, but the front dam has a splitter, so I do have to be careful.

I agree about the cross struts to stiffen the wing supports. I got the car back from the shop on Tuesday and drove to Lime Rock on Wednesday, so no time to shakedown.

Fenders were done by Carradini Auto Rebuilders in Rockaway, NJ. (973) 627-7717, ask for Billy. Great job, solid, no cracks. All steel. He cuts off the fender edge, add "pizza slices" of steel to extend the fender, then welds the edge back on to make it look like factory. The shape removes some of the boxiness from the 914. Almost looks voluptuous now. I love it! wub.gif

ABC - awesome. What effect does the front splitter provide. Will it push much more air over top ? Without a big rear wing like yours might that make the back end of the car looser ?

and i drove it for a whole year with no problems so im going to take it all apart and put
everything on this tub all it needs is hell hole to be fixed rear floor board and a little bit of the firewall and rear of the rear trunk i got a welder that will do everything i need for 150 bucks (hes a good friend) 150 isnt bad so what i need ill cut out of the blue car

i got this tub for 650 with the best targa they had the dash with 3 main gauges
plus i got a 1.7 engine with good compression for 200 and he threw in another engine for free no tax cause it was out of state and thrue them they brought everything to knoxvillt tn and my friends with a big truck i got everything to my house free

Posted by: thesey914 Jun 9 2005, 12:39 PM

Craig - Thanks! Not sure what the paint code is but it sure is blue. Thanks for all your help.

Trev,
You in North San Jose? The houses look very familiar. What HS are you nearest? PHHS? Just guessing.

Posted by: Trevorg7 Jun 23 2005, 09:44 AM

Hi Brent - I am in Almaden which is south San Jose; near the Safeway and country club. Closest HS is Leyland I believe.

Posted by: Brent Jun 23 2005, 09:20 PM

Thanks for the quick response. I was hoping you were closer so I could get a better look at the color.

Posted by: Trevorg7 Jun 23 2005, 09:25 PM

Brent - Anytime. Its not too far. The original code was L50E, Adriatic Blue, but it's been repainted at least once. It looks much better in the pictures and form 20 feet than up close.

This is Dew4, my 73 2.0L. It's freshly back on the road after an engine overhaul and other work. It is wonderfully sweet to drive!

The sticker in the back window says "My other car is a Volkswagen" - the sticker in the back window of the Eurovan says the same thing!
