1973 Porsche 914/4

Engine is a 2056 build from FAT Performance. Dual 44 Webers, Webcam, lightened flywheel, 44 mm intake valves, welded valve seats, decked and balanced. FAT Performance dyno’ed the engine 140 HP @ 6500 rpm, 140 FP torque at 3500 rpm. Stock 901 side sift transmission, solid motor mounts and semi-solid transmission mounts. Renn-shifter. Brakes are stock with stock pads. Wheels are 8” x 15” Dura Lite. I’m currently running 245 x 40 Hoosier A7 tires. Fiberglass Sparco seats with Racequip 5-point harness. The roll cage is from Tangerine Racing. The steering wheel is a 15” midget racer with quick release that I bought from Smiley’s Racing. Stock steering column and rack. Upgraded the steering rod ends to 911. Stock (but rebuilt) peddles. Rear suspension is stock trailing arms (strengthened) on Bilstien HD height adjustable coil-overs. Rear spring rate unknown but I suspect it’s about 200 FP. Front struts are stock with single adjustable Koni inserts. Stock torsen bars. Front sway bar is stock and I deleted the stock rear bar. Without ballast the car weight 1638 lbs. Two of the classes I run in have minimum weight of 2056 (displacement=weight) so there’s a lot of 1” and 1/2” plate steel for ballast. Most of that’s in the floor pans but one chunk is under the fuel cell in the front truck. Braided fuel line from tank, through tunnel, into Holley fuel filter and pressure regulator. Carter fuel pump. All the wiring is custom. Headlights and tail lights gutted. Head light covers bolted down. Tail light holes covered with sheet metal and welded. Turn signals deleted and the holes covered. All the glass is removed. Doors gutted except for door opener mechanisms. Window glass slots covered with sheet metal and welded. Fiberglass wheel fairs pop-riveted to enlarged wheel openings. Front and rear trunk lids latches removed and flush mount latches installed. Front bumper and facia removed and fiberglass replacements installed. Rear bumper is the rubber bumper off my ‘76 parts car, mounted to custom brackets and steel beam removed.
