A workout for Project 914

Update by Tim Suddard to the Porsche 914 project car
Mar 18, 2003

We got a chance to give the 914 a good workout last Friday. We drove it about 150 miles and took it on a test track. Several problems crept into play during the day, a pretty serious oil leak under hard cornering (appearing to come from the valve covers) and another alternator has gone bad.

We did get a chance to play with the brake bias, cranking in more rear bias to keep the fronts from locking. We’ll be switching back to the stock front pads to see if the aggressive aftermarket pads are too much for the lightweight front end.

The 914 weighs 2097 lbs. with 3/4 of a tank of gas.
