Yeah, at some point someone talked sense into me and I sold that 912 engine.

The "original" 2332cc VW engine that was in it before is being freshened up, made a bit more street-able and going back in.
It's at Paradise now getting a set of 044 CNC Super Pro heads, IDA intakes match ported, dropping the compression to 9:1 range, and swapping the FK89 cam for something milder and easierfor daily driver status instead of drag race status.
Since I sold the wrapped 911 shroud set up, I'm going a different route this time. The whole engine compartment will have a new look to it when I'm done.

In the meantime, I managed to get the rebuilt (repaired) trans back from Rancho. I had them do the 3.44 R&P as well as the .77 4th gear. It works so well in my buses I figured, why not.

So I got that installed and got the car back to a roller status.



Just in time for that BD to show up and take all of my extra time....  Roll Eyes

Too many irons in the fire means nothing gets done...

The new 2332cc engine for this is in longblock form now. Waiting on carbs and intakes to be powder coated then it will get a run on the dyno at Paradise.
Once it's back to my place I'll try to get it finished up and back in the car.

Waiting for install, but I had to take a peek in the crate. 12/2016



Numbers on the dyno "to the ground" 176 HP / 167 Torque

Still, way more than I need, but as Jason says, it's "reliable HP now"
