After ump-teen years my 914 3.0 six conversion runs!
Major milestone, just tripled the value with a turn of the key.
Sounds real healthy, can't beat that /6 sound!

Still lots of electrical gremlins to work through and it looks like my timing light took a crap half way through break-in. Oh well....that's somewhat expected.
Biggest issue is it looks like my alt/reg isn't charging. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)
But I got to drive around the block. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Who cares about the little things...... it's alive!!!!

I can only imagine how it feels to first fire a long term project like that. I felt pretty good firing my car after many years of slumber, but resurrecting a stock car isn’t the same as wrapping up a big conversion like this. Congrats!!

Yes, congratulations, Mark! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beer.gif) "Umpteen years?" Ok, good. I'm not behind schedule, then.

Please do post pics when you have a chance.

Nice! I had a similar event earlier this year.

So, Mark, if umpteen is more than 30 years, I will gladly relinquish my self-awarded trophy for the longest completed resto project in the history of the World (although... they are never really done, are they?).

Well done.
