I built up a V8 914 several years ago.
The car was reliable and easy to drive and went like stink when I mashed the loud pedal. It also handled very well. in faxt it did everything well.
but I didn't like the car.

I've had 4 Porsches and managed to fall in love with everyone of them except the v8 car. I couldn't wait to sell it.
It just didn't have the charm of the others.

If you need an engine and can't afford a good turbo motor, just buy a 3.0 or 3.2 liter and stick in there.
You will be changing your turbo to a turbo look, but won't have to hack up the car and mess with the resale value too much.
If you pump alot on money into a V8 conversion you will be lucky to get 25% of it back when you sell.
