With Part 1 of the build page getting too long, welcome to Part 2 of the Porsche 914 -6 restoration.
We left Part 1 with the Porsche getting refitted with the wiring, pipework, brakes and suspension parts. The original part have either been cleaned up and restored or replaced with new items.
We pick it up with the engine getting rebuilt Daz who is stripping it down and is having a new cam, pistons and tune to increase the performance on this 6 cylinder lump.
Daz has now been fully rebuilt the 914 – 6 with new domed pistons for a higher compression ratio. New high lift cams, new cam shafts, shaft bearings and new timing chains. With these mods and a good tune we are hoping the engine will be good for around 150 bhp. The engine has also been cleaned and detailed.
Daz has dropped the engine off and rich has started restoring and fitting the engine ancillaries. He was also cosmetically restored the gearbox and fitted it to the engine.
It is looking super clean, Daz and Rich have done an amazing job restoring the engine. It is a shame its mid engined and you cant really see it.
