Hello 914 community,

Just wanted to let you all in on a 914 build to remember. This car was initially thought out on a napkin sketch, and has slowly been coming to life. The idea behind this project is simple, how would Porsche go about creating a 914 cup car today? Well, hopefully when the build is done, it'll meet our racing derived expectations that only a manufacturer like Porsche could (re) produce.

Brief Technical Specs (will list more as the build progresses):
-1974 Porsche 914 fully assembled by MSDSinc.

-Cayenne V8 TT 5.0 litre, derived from 2010 Daytona Prototype engineering, built by Lozano Brothers Porting (1000 / 1100 whp)

-Porsche 996 GT2 Transmission, built by California Motorsports

Some of you may ask why, we asked why not?


Enjoy,
Matthew Schneider

This is the condition that we bought her in,

What the engine will 99.9% look like when finished, and yes this is the 2010 Daytona Prototype (and Cayenne V8 all motor) winning car that you were just trying to remember.

Umm... 1000whp/tq?

This is cool and all, but damn, thats a hell of a lot of money thrown in this car already... Im sure you have one hell of a connections list already to just get ahold of that engine/trani.. but Thats got to be at least 50k already spent on those two items and probably closer to 100k.....

A few months ago I was concidering this very same project. I had a lead on a cayenne v8 motor in my area..life prevented me from pulling the trigger and moving ahead with the idea.....! I went the 3.0l way. Maybe my next project (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Looking forward to learning from your experiences..... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

how do you/did you remove the glue residue from where the backpad was in the engine compartment without removing the paint?

I'm in the same boat and I want to get rid of the residue left behind but I don't want to remove any of the paint if I don't have to.

<forgive me if that's a noob question>

Brake cleaner works for this, or similar solvents. Wear a respirator, and test a small area first to make sure it doesn't hurt the paint.

I used carburetor cleaner and a wire brush, but don't think this will save your paint. No matter what kind of way you go about it, any abrasive measures will show in the paint, e.g. no smoothness..
