Felix, I have never done a Subaru, but a few V8s now. Although the Mazda rotary is now in a Karman Ghia, I will do another one in a 914 in the future. It was an excellent match for the stock gearing, but the chain saw noise was a bit hard to handle. There has to be a better way to quiet them down. That project can be viewed on my website here. I don't have many pictures of my cars, but here is a shot of my wifes engine bay. Never to be this clean again. DLee

Wow, a lot of V8's 914's out there! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif) Sort of cool.

So why doesn't anyone do the aluminum block V8's (Not including Rick). (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Is there only the 215 (Buick?) and the later Vette engines? Seems like that would take care of any wieght issues?

Cost and availability are a couple reasons. Cast-iron SBCs are plentiful. Also, don't the Corvette engines require significantly more engine bay/firewall mods? The standard Chevy engine fits in easy.

Chunger, I just finished a big construction project doing 60% of the work myself, so I FEEL your pain. I know first hand the best way to deal with your problem. You simply must get the V8 out of mind. Here is what I am will to do for you, my 914 brother. I will take that pain in the ass with it's obnoxious 930 trans off your hands. I will pay to ship it all the way out to Illinois at my, thats right my expense. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/w00t.gif)

Feel the love my friend. Let me help ease your troubled mind. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/monkeydance.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/chairfall.gif)

The newer Aluminum LSx engines will mount up with No mods to the front firewall if you are using a remote water pump as with the SBC. You would need to reverse the intake to have the throtlle body facing the rear of the car and this takes cutting a hole in the rear firewall about as big as what is used for the distributor on the SBC.

First of, let me just say that is a real honor to be on the list and to be part of such a great group of interesting people. Enough a$$ kissing. You can get an all aluminum virgin block from an number of suppliers. I almost got the aluminum block from Brodix. What changed my mind was not only the price tag of $3800.00 US, but at the end of the day you only save in the neighbor hood of about 100 lbs. Not worth the out lay of cash for 100lbs weight savings imo.

Regards,
turbo Paul.

Can't you just toss a carb on it? If the block is basically the same as say a post 86' block, can't you just K.I.S.S. and slap on a decnt 650 carb, HEI Ign and go?

Sorry for the questions, but sure seems like the way to go to me.
