Very excited for your new engine!

The oil cap thing seems like something I would do. Yes, it deserves a spot on a trophy shelf or similar.

This engine is pretty incredible, my son has the first one and seat of the pants feels at least 150hp. The EFI and feel of this engine is hands down the finest air cooled 4 cylinder option that exists for the 914..


Is your son using a remote oil cooler? I’d love to take this system out of my car, but wanted to talk with someone and see if it’s needed.

Zach


Yep, he has a front engine oil cooler, similar to a GT cooler.

You can get them all day on ebay for $30. I'm not sure you could fabricate them much cheaper.

$26

I purchased one several years ago at the local IPC VW parts store (no shipping charge) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Looks like they've gone up in price since then - ($30. these days)

I got a delivery today!
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/live.staticflickr.com-1435-1680118658.1.jpg)

I was still in the middle of my work day, so all I let myself do was take a little peak after signing for the crate.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/live.staticflickr.com-1435-1680118659.2.jpg)

My plan for the evening is to finish uncrating everything, take inventory, and mount things like the engine bar and the transmission. I also got some brake stuff from PMB that I want to do prior to mounting the engine. New soft lines, new pads, etc. get everything bled properly.

I'm really hoping to have a first start on Sunday sometime.

Behind this crate is a /6 2.7 with CIS. Its going to eventually go into the bus, and the oil tank is from that.
