thanks for the warm welcome. the car is a 76 912E, which came with the same engine as a 914. because of this, dimensions are similar to that of the vw T1, only parts are easier to come by, and there is alot more performance stuff available. we've been able to make a few test runs to see how things work, and it's a bit different. in 1st gear, it won't make more than 5 psi, period. however, in the other gears, once it reaches about 4500 rpm, the boost needle jumps to about 17 psi, and you better hold on. the gentleman that aided us with what rods, cam, tubing sizes, etc; said on 10 psi it should make around 250 hp. that being said, i would say it was pushing out over 300 at 17 psi. fortunately, the 912E weighs in at around 2100 lbs, about half a ton lighter than the 930 i believe, that put out similar power figures. once we get things worked out, i'll keep everyone posted on how it does.
