I grew up with a 914 that my dad drove. It was a 1973 1.7L. When I went to college in 1985 I took the car with me. A year later the engine got very tired. My dad bought me more reliable transportation. One weekend I came home my beloved car was gone. My dad had sold it.

Fast forward 34 year later and I have found the car! It was painted shortly after being purchased but never fixed up. I have the opportunity to buy the car back. I know the engine needs to be rebuilt. I do not know if I want to rebuild the 1.7L or find a 2.0L engine or doing a v8 conversion. I will take any advice you can give me.

I am leaning toward rebuilding the original 1.7L. If so can I get more hp out of it?
