to convert something cool with something cool..

GRM magazine did a short article about a VW Beetle TDI pushing over 400 ft lbs of torque...

Stuff that into a boxster and run it on grease....

Ack! That would be nasty. I'll take a humble Porsche V8 or even a 3.8 6 please.

Keep that thought RichT (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) How about the TDI in a 914 instead? 70+ MPG and a reliable 300hp (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Keeps coming back like a bad cold. (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/lol.gif)

Passat tranny fits and bolts to the motor...
TDIClub.com has a guy who is doing one...
BTDT, did the research...

Just keep thinking about it...that is why I found that beetle that puts out 400 ft lbs of torque...

In the next month or so I am going to get a beetle TDI so I can learn about the motor...see if its all they say it is.

Personally, I would rather do it to a boxster...they are worth less (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/lol.gif)
Plus they already have radiators.
Just not sure if all of it would fit...
I bet I could find a boxster for less than 5k with a blown motor....hmmm

Rich, a lady with an early Boxster that recently suffered a broken IMS, just sold the complete roller for $3K.

that would have been a perfect candidate for some research and bastard transplant.... (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

TDI in an older Boxster platform would be interesting, and like you said, all the plumbing/radiators are already there.
much easier than trying to do it in a 914.

The blue one? That had a hardtop? That was a screaming deal! The hard top alone could fetch a grand.

I figure the Boxster to be the next 924......soon to be followed by the 996 which may assume 944 status....not that there's anything wrong with that.

that is why I decided to go aircooled with my latest 911.

the 986s and 996s have too many examples that have been made....not collectable.

they continue to drop in price. My C2 on the other hand will maintain it's value...as they have in the recent past.

Collectable? Who cares? Mid engine Boxsters will still kick C2 booty value or not. (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/wavey.gif)

is that any way to talk to your former co-driver (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/wavey.gif)

just let me get a little suspension on the old Whale and then we can talk (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

Youre welcome to drive the much faster Boxster anytime as a co-driver. Just keep the C2 waxed for the local concours events. (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

Hi,

This is my first post here, I thought this might be relevant though.

I've helped design a kit to mate the Toyota 4.0L V8 to the Boxster G86-00 (Audi 012) and am in the process of getting it made, if I can get a few orders to the guy making them then the price'll come down for them.

Refer to the link below:

www.gt40s.com/forum/gt40-tech-powertrain-transaxles/27320-toyota-1uz-fe-engine-audi-012-porsche-g86-00-01e-adaptor-kit-available.html

For more information on the deal if you're interested.

Thanks,

Doug Clark

excuse my ignorance but isn't the Toyota 4.0L a V6.
4.7L V8 and 4.7L V8 from the Tundra.

I think he's talking about the 4.0L Lexus V8. So 256-290 hp... And up to 300 ft lbs- careful which transmission you hook it up to.

What's it supposed to fit in?

Yep I reffering to the Lexus 4.0L V8.

Its going to fit in my own scratch built project which can be seen here if you are interested:

Interesting. Everything I have heard is that the Boxster 5 speed isnt up to task for high torque motors. How did you decide on Boxster 5 speed for your project? How are you adapteing the Lexus V8 to the tranny?

I'm starting to think V8 in a Boxster is not going to be an easy task. No one seems to think it can be done without lots of fab work and use of old g50 tranny.

I have one of those motors and one of the G86 transmissions in the shop. The transmission is rated at 380NM by Getrag. Which puts it right around the limit for the stock Lexus motor. It isn't that much stronger than the 901. But at least you get a modern gearbox with good synchros and such.

I think I am going to put it all up for sale and find something a little more suitable for performance work. The 1UZ is not aftermarket friendly. Strong as hell, but cams are 2000$ a set. The heads aren't that great either. An LSX is a better motor to deal with.

In midengined application the transaxle is always the limiting factory. If you really want to make big power in a midengined chassis, bring money. A good transmission will take $10K to survive and not worry about.

make an adapter to run the G50 stuff inverted.


Forget the G50. They are being sucked up for the kit car market. NOw you have Cobra's with rear mounted G50's ,which is why Mendeola is stepping up with a new mid engine tranny for the street market with multiple bellhousing choices (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

How much modification is needed to mount a G50 behind a 3.2L in a 74' 914. I know it has a hydraulic clutch but are there any issues with the shifter etc.?

Luckily.. we have a NEW mid-engine shifter setup available for the G50 (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/clap56.gif)

The hyd clutch is pretty easy to overcome and the flywheel/clutch stuff is EASY, but a custom mount (not hard) needs to be fabbed.

The hot ticket would be to use the later 996TT or GT3 tranny cable shifted. Same work for mounting and clutch, but cable shifted from the factory!!
