Ron Light just talked to me on the phone and explained it was a very quick car. I'll believe the HP claim after i drive it. I do believe it runs nice having spoken to multiple people that have driven the 914 2.0 it lived in prior.

John Forbes Owner of the very reputable Black Forrest Racing in NC, looks after the Bahia Red 914 2.0 that now has a flat six engine installed in it.

John drove this 914 plenty before the Fat Performance motor was removed and told me it ran real smooth and idled nice.

Also a great guy named Brian who runs a Porsche shop across the parking lot from Black Forrest Racing drove it and said it was quick and that the cam really comes on around 5000 rpm. He said he had that 914 2.0 doing 120 mph very quickly.
