You wouldn't be reading this listing unless (1) you already appreciated the 914's mid-engine handling characteristics and (2) you wondered what it would be like to combine that handling with the torque of a V8 engine ???

How about heart-pounding, almost scary performance like 0 to 60 in 4.x seconds, the quarter in the 12's, turn-in like a go-kart and stopping on a dime ... leaving an ear-to-ear grin that will almost break your face - but NOT your wallet!

With over 100 pages and 250 color pictures & illustrations dedicated to the 914 heritage, four different ( priced ) stages of 914-8 development from stock to sleeper to pumped to radical - pick your poison, the actual ( how-to ) conversion details and much of the conversion's follow-on accessorization.

Normally sold on eBay for $ 69.14 plus shipping, it's offered here on the 914club at $ 60.00 plus actual shipping ( US Priority Mail ) cost.

Following is the Table Of Contents page for an overview ... for more info, contact ... ed.ducey@gmail.com

I can vouch this is a very informative and well printed reference manual and guide. (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif) Don't soley rely on the kit manufacturers, they're just not good with documentation and they have biased information.

Wish I had read this manual earlier! If I do it again I won't be quite as clumsy. A great book and well worth the money!

Do you still sell this? I have been thinking about getting a 914 and doing this. I did have a 914 about three years ago with an old Rayco body kit on it but (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) had to let it go. Any info would be great.

[size="2"][/size]Hello to all you fellow 914 lovers! I just found a box in the garage that I totally forgot about. I had bought a 914 about 10 years ago and it had an adapter plate to bolt a buick/Pontiac v6 or v8 engine into the 914. There is also a flywheel - clutch plate/disc - starter and other pieces that I need to inventory. I am pondering whether to sell it or build my own beast? If anyone is interested it let me know. Thanks, Dave 252 229 0939
