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 motor in een 1303 kever uit 1975 - Eerste keer starten
De eerste keer starten van een Porsche 914 motor nadat deze is ingebouwd in
een Volkswagen 1303 kever uit 1975. De motor heeft voorheen in een Karmann
Ghia gezeten. Zoals je kan horen moet de motor nog flink afgesteld worden,
maar hij loopt wel! Meer informatie over deze kever vind je op
www.VWkever.com en dan de knop "Wims 75er kever".

Porsche 914 1.7L Single Progressive Weber Engine Motor (SOLD!)
30k mile lower end, fresh top end with 0 miles, 90mm Bore x 66mm Stroke,
215mm 4 spring Sachs clutch, Weber 32/36 Progressive carb. This engine has
been test run for 2 hours so assume that retuning will be required. Also
please note that the carb is used and appears to have an issue with the
accelerator pump circuit which is causing a slight hesitation under sudden
acceleration. Since I'm not satisfied with the carb performance I am
offering this engine at a discount so the buyer can choose to repair or
replace the carb at their discretion.

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.
