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.

Porsche 914 comes to life after a 4 year plus slumber.
1973 Porsche 914 2.0 liter four cylinder is started up for the first time
after putting new electrical, fuel lines, fuel pump etc. in the car. And
rebuilding the carburetors (actually the second start) The first start
actually started much quicker. One has to pump the accelerator petal hard
on older cars. Check out the car IV i put together with a 1 gallon
Hawaiian Punch bottle.
Porsche 914 2.4 Liter Engine, 2413cc Motor, Air cooled VW, Bus, Type 4, 2.0 IV
150 Hp Type IV high performance engine, 71mm stroke x 104mm bore. Scat C45
cam, polished intakes, 44mm x 38mm SS valves, 9.2:1 CR, dual 44mm Webers. I
built this engine for my brother and while I was gone he shot the video

First Drive - 2015 Subaru WRX STI
Hooniverse.com's Jeff Glucker travels to Northern California to meet up
with the latest version of a popular Pleiades-badge wearing,
all-wheel-drive, rally rocket. It's the 2015 Subaru WRX STI, and it's time

Motor VW Boxer para Carro ou Avião
Estamos mostrando pela primeira vez na internet os trabalho do nosso amigo
Marcos Fornasari, que ha muito tempo trabalha com a preparação de motores
e em especial com os VW refrigerados a ar (Motor do Fusca). Esta é uma
versão 1.8 com carburador de dois estágios, o que mostrou muito eficiente
no quesito de desempenho e economia de combustível. Também já se
encontra em desenvolvimento o motor que equipará o nosso avião (vide
projeto Revista AVIEX), que em breve será mostrado os testes aqui também.

Boxer VW Engine
Beetle Air cooled Boxer Engine. Just finished with the whole assembly and
then running on the Dyno to calculate the actual
power. The run was very successful but there were still some transmission
losses to be fixed. I just love the sound of this engine!!...:) It is all
mechanically controlled with sports cams and sports package. A little more
tweak to the Engine and its ready to race on track. :)
