lots of great conversion threads
lots of gread vendors and members
this site rocks!
Have fun!



I actually am buying the car from a current member and will post pictures when I get it back..

Just a little more information about myself. When I did my conversion I had CNC'd a bunch of intermediate plates and also made a bunch of engine mounts along with rear sway bar mounts.. I then built 914-6 headers for my car and then a muffler and all the sudden mkexhaust.com was born. I sold M&K about 3 years ago after growing the business to a point that it was time to sell. I plan to make some more parts for the 914 market but to a much lower level then M&K was.

I am really looking forward to this experience again. My first project will be 5 bolt conversion then I will be hand making steel flares off of paterns I have. Then on to oil tanks and engine mounts and possible engine sheet metal.


Now kinda feel like an a-hole with my response (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif)

Looking foward to seeing your build....especially the flares.


No worries

In the midst of doing one (-6 conversion) on my 1971. I'll be doing it half factory/half aftermarket. Factory oil tank/filler neck/lines. Aftermarket engine mount and sheet metal. Will have a 2.4 E/S MFI engine installed along with upgraded 901 tranny complete with 904 mainshaft and all the Guard tranny upgrades possible.

Still one of the nicest projects out there as the final, sorted product is about the best ride you can have. I love my 911 Carrera, but absolutely go nuts when I can take my conversion -6 out for a spin!

Ok so an update..

I have the car though the seller was less then truthful as the pictures sent were not of the current condition of the car (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) He replaced one rocker and did a poor job as he did not cut out all the old rust (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) he then did not have the paperwork on the car and has since stopped trying to help me with that and the worst is he was a board member here)

The good news is that I know my way around Porsche's pretty well and I also am a welder Fabricator /instructor at a college, and the Paperwork issue has been solved with the help of a few on this board. I also have ordered a rear floor pan , new rockers, and have fabbed up the new front trunk floor with venting for the front oil cooler.

anyhow its moving forward.. I wish I could post pictures but every thing I try and post is too big so I have to learn to resize pictures.

One thing that has changed since you did your last 914 is the flares, there is now quality reproduction steel flares being made.
They are made by AA, but I'm a hater so I personally will never buy from them.

Restoration Design is your best source for repair panels and your steel flares.
RD has changed hands since you last had a 914. It's now a top notch supplier with many parts. Also it's now based out of Canada which is no big deal.
Ordering and shipping is no BS you will have the parts in your hands within days.

and the nice thing is right now their prices are cheaper the advertised. I am guessing because Steel prices are in the toilet along with fuel costs..

I am working some hand made steel flares right now on the english wheel and planishing hammer.. I will see how they turn out.. worst case is I buy them new from RD.

QUOTE(mb911 @ Nov 18 2015, 07:11 AM) *

Just a quick introduction. I am picking up a 74 1.8 this weekend to do a 6 conversion on. I built one about 15 years ago but then sold it and had a 964 and a 911 turbo in its absence. I have since sold everything and have not had a porsche in about 3 years.

Technology has changed since my absence and was looking for a quick list of must do's when doing a conversion..

Thanks

If you need to look at any -6 parts I am just 90 min away

I'm sure you are...any ideas where to get a 3.6, 3.2 or 3.0 without paying an arm and a leg?
I'm beginning to wonder if my 2.7 may be a money pit if I have to do case work.

Problem is, they are becoming unobtanium. I am currently looking for a 3.6 964 motor for my car. When they show up, they are going for over 10K in running condition. Long blocks are going for 7 to 8K.

If anyone knows where I can find a 964 engine, let me know. I have the cash on hand, but I can't find one.

This is one expensive engine

And doesn't it take like 28 quarts of oil or something


I am assuming this is the max displacement /6 one

Can upgrade to but seems awfully overkill to me


Just to stir the pot (IMG:style_emoticons/default/stirthepot.gif)

They are WAY too proud of that one. It has been on the market for a year now.

Current price range for a conversion motor is in the 10K range. I have that waiting for the right engine.

Funny thing is I sold a 964 3 years ago had a lsd g50 and got 19 for the whole car and that was a hard sale.. It was a really nice Car.. Prices are crazy right now..

Yes. I am there now... I resisted the case work and tried just timecerting studs but in the end had to tear it down again to do it right. The casework alone was expensive. Now on heads, thats another mortgage.
