1.8L VW Boxer Engine Warmup on Dyno

This is the 1.8L VW boxer engine intended for use in a '75 Porsche 914 race car. The engine has been race prepped by myself and others at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. We are Team Rose Motorsports, and we build and race cars. We also have an 88 Ford Mustang setup for drag racing and an 89 BMW 325is that competes in D-stock SCCA solo autocross. This is a video of Dyno break-in under no load...should make a full pull within the next few weeks...carbs still need tuning.
