Taking it apart to see what I've got. Has 2.0 Porsche designed heads, valves look big but I want to confirm all this and the actual displacement. I also want to hone the cylinder walls for good measure. Looks nice and clean so far. This motor was built 10 years ago at least so it needs detailing and freshening, but i bought it very well. New [after a core credit of $1000] they run around $12000 for 160 BHP and go up from there.

The shroud is red gel coat finished but has been painted black. It has some big chips and a few small cracks which i want to address properly with fiberglass and then paint it properly. Then detail the rest of the engine. It had an oil cooler mouted in the frunk of the 914 2.0 which i need to replace but will install up in the fender in R fashion. I'd like to do 2, one in each fender and install an Accusump.

The serial number on the case begins with a G, all Type 4 cases are the same but that means this one was originally in a Bus.

I'm thinking i need to add some Hippie aestetic details. Maybe 7 dancing bears in place of the PORSCHE script on the engine lid.
