So glad to see someone doing this.
Marty, you are the right guy for this project.

It's something we talked about as soon as that motor arrived, but we all needed to wait till a few of them ended up in the junk yards...

I look forward to this car getting done

Hello community! Here is a small update, but too cool not to post!

I've been in communications over the last several months with a forum member on here, and created this beautiful masterpiece you see below. Let me just say, it was worth every penny. The quality and craftsmanship that went into this Carbon Fiber dash piece is bar none the best.

I think it'll look great with the black "texuede sp" I got to cover the dash with for that exotic race feel.

pretty much summed up my facial expression at first sight.. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/stones.gif)

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/imageshack.us-14843-1370766568.7.jpg)

Well that's it for the carbon fiber dash for now, but I'll be sure to post more dash pics once the texuede sp arrives.

Not to leave you so soon, here are some pics of the bulbs for the tail lights:

Over 120 LEDs per bulb! (excluding the smaller ones of course)

Matt,
Great dash porn, I took photos before sending it over but was never happy with the lighting.

So, what color will you paint the car? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

It'll 'officially' be painted carrera white, but it'll be viynl wrapped (exterior only) in something crazy attention grabbing etc.

These were some of the ideas I was throwing around:

Gray Urban Camo,

Orange Urban Camo,

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/imageshack.us-14843-1370796735.2.jpg)

Red Urban Camo,

I got some of the LEDs from here, you can get different LEDs that'll fit their respective sockets accordingly.

Great project!!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Are the outside dimensions (space it takes up) of your race engine the same as a stock Cayenne/Panamera engine?

What engine mounts/mounting system are you using to get it to bolt onto the 914 body?

Thanks,

Konrad

The dimensions will be narrower in width as we are making
our own spec turbo exhaust , that will hug the block.
The lower portion of the engine will be approx 9" shorter than stock (for ground clearence ), by using
a spec cnc. billet oil pan. The oe Cayenne /panamera pan is way too low in stock form
to go into a 914. Final mounting will be our signature Msds motor mount, which can be made
available in our parts catalogue for additional conversions.

Love the dash. Would love to buy one if they go into production. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif) How heavy is it compared to the OEM dash?

The CF dash can be lifted with a pinky finger! The OEM one, not so much. I haven't had a change to weigh the dashes yet, but I'll comment back on that as soon as I can.
Thanks,

That was Ruby914. I'm not sure if it's gone anywhere since then.

Erwan,
I recall the price was just north of $3,000 for all of the parts in the picture.
You can check the products out at Sheridan914.
Roger is a go-to guy for our 914s !

The new cnc aluminum oil pan , now 100% dry sump and a boatload of ground clearance compared to the oe Cayenne pan.
I wonder of this is what Porsche calls their new 4.6 "Flatcrank" engine design in the upcoming 918?
