That 914 could be the ultimate "sleeper". Even flared it will sail under the radar of most until they hear that engine. By then, it's too late. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

The stars align again. I can't remember if I mentioned this yet but:
Turns out a recent acquaintance is a Motec dealer and owns a 360 Challenge car and a 360 street car! He knows these engines.
I had a nice, long chat with him yesterday and he's agreed to come by, inspect the engine, provide a list of "to do before firing" items and, once the parts are here, perhaps even do the work.
Progress!

That is great! I would love to be able to be there when you fire that baby for the first time. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Betty and I have been debating going to Red Rocks or to Okteenerfest this year. If this is going to be at Red Rocks, I want to see it in person.

@Cairo - Michael, I suspect that, as with my LS build, I'll schedule the first start. Anyone who'd like to be here is welcome to attend.

@infraredcalvin - I'm sure we'll come up with something, sooner or later. I've noodled on a couple, including Project 2.538 which is how many time 360 goes into 914.
Or maybe "NARF"? Too bad that's not currently available as a CA vanity plate. Yes, I checked.
But NARPOFF (Not A Real Porsche Or F-ing Ferrari) is! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)
So clearly a ways to go. Feel free to submit your suggestions!

@ClayPerrine Clay, the goal is to have it running/driving at that point. Given the focus I'm putting on this project, within a few weeks I should have a pretty good idea if that'll be doable. I'll be posting progress as it's made and if that timing starts to look at all questionable, I'll let everyone know. Now, if you're looking for a lousy excuse to treat Betty to a Napa area wine country vacation... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif)

And if it's far enough along to be worth looking at, I may trailer it to WCR so folks can check it out. Big if and may, but we'll see.

Took me too long to dig this up, but for perspective, here's a 3.6 with a 915
Intakes on this are also pretty tall but clear the engine lid (barely) the F360 looks taller still ...Can't wait to see how this project progresses (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)

Let's keep with the "it was meant to be" theme. I've been sitting and staring at the drive train because, well, "Ferrari" and noticed the output flanges just begging to have something test fit to them. With my car apart, my axles were handy.

You now know the answer and can confidently state when you're next asked at this weekend's Cars & Coffee, "Why yes, Carrera axles do bolt right on to Modena trans output flanges."

You're welcome and can thank me later. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif)

Seriously though, I suspected this might be the case. Nice that it's now verified. Even better is that once I get my Boxster trans back, all I have to do is some simple math and I'll know the length the axles need to be. I suspect they'll need to be shorter than the Carrera spec, but we'll know soon enough.
A successful first step, and I'll take it!

One other major decision has been made. I asked the owner what would happen if the engine needed major work. He said "I'll fix it.". So there it is. Decision made.
I'm going to pick up that lovely chassis in the next day or so and the clearance surgery will begin soon after.
Here.
We.
Go.

This is fascinating. The fact the Italian & German flanges could line up. Two competitors
sharing a 3rd party supplier? Crazy. I would have thought a piece like this would be “in house”.
Anyway. I love this. Can’t wait to see where this one goes.
So cool of the Ferrari engine owner to concede a rebuild if necessary.
Wow, just wow. Chris you never fail to educate us!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Ferrari and Porsche did share the 914-6/308 rear caliper. Small differences but same castings.

Hey Chris,
I was thinking 94dena or 914ena.
Looking forward to seeing this build!
