Can you please do a writeup on your 914 1.8t? I think lots of us would get a kick out of seeing how this project was put together. An '03 1.8t motor in a 914 sounds like awesome, reliable fun, and you kept it in the VW/Porsche family!

Great chassis, great motor, different flavor than the typical flat-6 transplant.

Show it off!

Oh Lordy Lou. I must've missed this in Reader's Rides, but clearly a 1.8T 914 needs more expanding upon.

Sounds sick.

I think the 1.8t will bolt right up to the 901 trans without too much issue. It probably needs an adaptor, but if they can fit a v8 into an 914, I am pretty sure the 1,8t can be made to fit.

I am more interesting in the coolng system. One of my dream cars is a type3 square back with a scooby motor

I know him, he autocrosses with me. I'll ask him to look in on this topic if/when I see him next.

Thanks for the interest, Let me go through the accumulated pics, and see what I can put togther. Like my head, they are quite scattered these days.
