> If you have a 3.2 L Build would you still drive a 2 L or 1.7 L car in the garage?

I've owned a 75 2 liter and currently a 73 with a 3.2 conversion. If I still had the 75, trust me, it would sit in the garage, there's no comparison.

Thanks for the feedback.

I suppose few people remove a 2L to put a 1.7L back in...

Literally just sold the ‘73 1.7 so you guys better be right. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/evilgrin.gif)

I can't recall the last time I drove a 4 cylinder car- has to be back in the late 70's. I would still buy one and make it a 2056 with FI and some nice suspension. Great go cart. But having and now driving my 3.2.....that's hard to step away from. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

I did my 3.2l conversion myself buying parts from members in here dedicated to building quality conversion components. Also couldn't have done it without a lot of advice from those that already ventured down this road. With my build, there was no alterations to the rear trunk as mentioned above, I used the stock 3.2l air filter box, use the 911 blower motor for heat, and put the dme under the passenger seat just like in 911's. Clean.

Here is a birds-eye view...

I'd rather drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow.
Bought my 1.7 probably around 15 years ago.
Many 911s and a 914-6C have come and gone since then, but the 914 is still here.
Skinny tires and just enough hp to have fun in the Twisties at barely over the speed limit.
