1975 914-4 TO 6 3.2L CONVERSION & RESTORATION

 
This 1975 914-4 was converted to a 914-6 with a 3.2L DME motronic engine, 901 5 speed trans with Wavetrac ATB diff, sport headers & exhaust, backdated bumpers, upgraded suspension & brakes, and a hidden front oil cooler. 
The end result is a slick, understated classic with nearly triple the stock power!

Stripped down, the engine bay needed to be perfected before anything new could go in.
We blanket the car in 3M, specially designed to protect the body and paint from welding sparks.

Meanwhile, the 3.2L DME is nearly ready in the engine room. 
This engine received a complete overhaul, rebuilt to like new condition, then improved even further. 
The 914 will now have a reliable source of 230+ hp!

gcoon front bumper

The 3.2L engine utilizes our front oil cooler kit, but the client wanted that part to be low key. So in addition to backdated bumpers, a unique design was implemented to the front end.

A match made in heaven. The 3.2L awaits installation. It's mated to a 901 5-speed transaxle, with Wavetrac ATB differential.
