Bruce, your setup shouldn't make the engine run hotter, it should help get more heat into the cabin when the engine is at idle. The only possible problems I can see with it are if any of the hoses block the cooling air going into the engine's fan. Or get caught in the fan!!

Barber Dave, no pics as I said. And the images we have in the "914 parts diagrams" section of this site don't really show that much of the heater stuff. You can look there, but realize that it only shows about half of the bits.

Dave Blackburn, I'm pretty sure you hooked up the cables for the "heat directing flaps" incorrectly. I hear they are a major hassle to do right...

I am going to see if I can take some pics this week, but don't hold your breath!!
