Got it finished and painted. Moved the cable inboard, the angle looks better. I plan to keep the (Audi Only) axle shield. But the cast aluminum Audi tranny mounts have been replaced with Boxster Steel units. This will give the mounts some symmetry over the Audi's.

Teaser photos... Rotary gets pulled this weekend. New turbo good for up to 350hp. Not sure which exhaust manifold to use. I need to get the engine in place to see where the turbo fits best...

Mike, are you going to run the stock turbo/tune for the initial testing and then upgrade?

GT28r is a great turbo.. I wish I took you for a ride in the Audi prior to me blowing that turbo...

Turbo should fit fine, the 914 has more side to side room than most cars, I would go with a bottom mount turbo due to the exhaust and the firewall clearance (VS going with like the SPA manifold..). Not very many available though... I see one on ebay, but not sure how long it would last before it cracked... ( My APR one is bottom, but its made of Iconell, so it will never crack...).

I'm going to have 034 flash the ECU and build to the tune.

I'm also running a new crankcase evacuation system to intercept the PCV system and draw constant vacuum on the crankcase. Since I'm using the Meth, the tune may be aggressive for pump gas.

The PCV system tends to crack and disintegrate, especially by the block. O34 has solutions to that.. Make sure you replace all the plastic bits there..

I have the 034 PCV aluminum bung to remove all the plastic bits. I need to decide if I want to build a catch can or buy one to go inlive with the evac.

I've heard mixed reviews on the intake spacer.

430 CC's is a good match for that turbo. But you will be able to max out those injectors if you run enough boost.

Oil cooler is a good idea for this engine, the stock oil cooler tends to push the temps higher than desired on hot days.

Whats going to be the fate of the rotary? Seems like it could be downsized to be a more reliable power plant for a street car.
