Hey Members ... I'm not sure what engine to go with ... I have two engines one may have 2,0 heads .. Not sure thou ... but was looking to either make a good one out of the two or just look for something else .. I would like something with torque and snapy ..
I was told from the PO that the engine was a 2.0 with dual 44 webbers .. The engine is in the car complete BUT not running and seized .. But I dont think it's a 2.0 .. The other engine is a 1.7 but all in pieces in a box .. So I think my options is to look for another eng to put in the car and maybe swap the carbs if they will work out and aren't too much carb for the engine .. I'm New to the 914 4cyl world .. All my other cars were 911s and a 944.. thanks for all the opinons ..i'm enjoying reading the feedback ... THANKS

The best engine option is a factory 914 2.0 engine with factory fuel injection, the next a factory 914 2.0 engine with dual 40 weber carbs. 44 carbs are only for racing where you have your foot in it and are driving around red line constantly

Doc, are the jets that come with Webers ok or do you recommend larger or smaller jets. I read about John Wyer’s mechanic installing new Webers without checking the jets and burning several pistons. C

no way he would burn pistons. The 40s when purchased out of the box work great on stock or even slightly big bore engines when driven normally.

Obviously for constant high rpm racing or high high altitude adjustments to the idle main and chokes need to be made
