Mats
The car looks great! I really like the narrow cars with the oil cooler opening. Can't really go wrong with the Martini livery. Nice job!

On the drivers side rear its barely that I get one of my fingers (tiny fingers) between the tire and fender lip, on the passenger side I have a little more space so I can easily but my finger between the tire and lip.

I RECOMMEND THAT YOU NOT PUT YOUR FINGERS BETWEEN THE TIRE AND BODY WHILE THE CAR IS IN MOTION!

Looks so nice. Wish I could see it in person

Very happy with the Scart muffler, the fit against the heater boxes was spot on, unlike the old Bursch snake pit that needed alot more effort to put in place.


Did you get the Scart Super Sound? Eventually I am getting one for my car. Can't wait to hear a video of it singing.

Brett


Yes I did.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) Will be awhile yet for any highrev singing as we still will have 3-4 months of winter to endure.....


I recently purchased a NOS banana muffler for my '74 2.0L but I'm seriously thinking of also getting the SCART SS muffler. Can you please post a video of the exhaust sound?

Mats, Just a guess, but with your fuel injection and stock heat exchangers, I'll say 140 hp, 145 ft-lb torque.

Thats a pretty good guess but it was a little bit more. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/matsgarage.com-15176-1489986680.1.jpg)

158 hp and 158 ft lbs.

Head temps ran between 140-170 C the whole time so that should be ok too.

What is going on with that graph? I will happily buy your numbers (158 HP/158 lb-ft torque) but that graph is showing over 200 lb-ft and the torque doesn't cross the HP at 5250 RPM!

The Torque is in Nm.....we damned metric europeans you know.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

214 Nm = 158 ft lbs if my online converter is correct.

Mats....158x158. Perfect square numbers for a "boxer" engine. Should be a hoot to drive. Nice job!

48 hours of happiness was all I got. Noticed a leak under the car and figured it was the tuna can that had seeped a bit more oil after the dyno day. Smelled the oil....transmission oil.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/barf.gif)

Input shaft seal is leaking. AT least it seems to be replaceable without opening the transmission. Figures it would start leaking as I've already changed the gear selector shaft seal and have the double o-ringed speedo drive unit.

Oh well down in the garage after dinner. 1 hour and 32 minutes and the gearbox was out of the car..

Hi Mats, too bad a 2$ part (seal) caused this to your nice work, at least you got some wrench-time out of it ! :-)
Good luck with the fix !

Ordered two new input shaft seals today. Is there a good DIY guide to pulling the old one and installing the new one somewhere? Prefered tools?
