The 911 tech forum point of view. 912's are a unappreciated gem.

This is a great effort, I have been putting off pulling the trigger on purchasing one of these engines for my Bastard 912 until I finish up another project. I will stay tuned. Again great job!!

Go to the 912 Registry then to their 912 Renegade forum. Make sure you start at the top of the thread. There are a few links.

I have never understood why you would want to do this type of engine but I take my hat off to some one who does.

I don't know if it's the cost that puts me off or the fact that for the same money I could get a 911 motor or a very hot type 4

Interesting thread for sure. Good luck with it all I am sure it's going to be a blast..

My current saving plan is for a Twin spark 616 motor so far I have all but the crank, rods I want. 160bhp loads of torque. but changing the plan to go up to 1900cc

Marc,

It will save on trying to find those expensive and hard to get 912 engine parts.

I agree getting 616 parts is becoming a joke I am so glad I didn't lissen to my wife and just bought all the parts I could at the time I didn't have the money

so I have all the parts I need for the twin plugg and the crank will be a non 616 and the rods infact are carrello rods again none 616 parts

P/C will not be Porsche and the disy is going to be in fact Electronic and not mechanical in anyway. it's a shame to bugger up a nice pair of heads 60k genuine miles heads but that's why i wanted them as they are a perfect pair to do the project. Sending them off soon to have the plugs drilled.. ekk!! engine case I have a few of those so I have picked the best one out of the 3.

Crank I have to call Andy Prill up again as had a proto type crank in the making last time I spoke to him at his place designed for twin plugging..

so it's all in all going to be about 4k so far. but that I am sure will rise alot more as I progress !! alot more gulp

Marc,

I built a complete new 616 engine. It was not a rebuilt. Every part in the engine was new OEM including the case and the heads. I also replaced everything in the transaxle. Luckily I had a good friend that had most of the parts in his stash bins or knew where to get them. The only things that was rebuilt was the Webers and the Distributor. However, all of the internals (crank, rods, and pistons) are forged. It ended up costing over 16K US. However, it was worth it. I have a car that drove like it just left the factory with only 24K original km. For the last 9 years all I had to do is changed the oil, oil filters, and adjust the carburetors once due to the change of adding alcohol to the gasoline. If you do it right. You will have a engine that will last for years. Unless you have it on the racetrack every weekend. It's only money.

I still have the original engine on the shelf. However, the case has a crack by the oil cooler.

I spoke to Dean Polopolus and Richard Clewett yesterday. They spent the afternoon together playing with and tuning tne 912P car. They seemed to be very pleased with the results. I asked them what the car might need. They said bigger brakes!
I'm looking forward to getting behind the wheel again at the end of September.
I hope to show the car in LA on 9-25 before I head up to Cambria,Ca for a 912 event.

The 912P will be in Excellence this month. The article was done by Randy Wells. You can see his work at Randy Wells : Writer / Director of Photography Automotive, Porsche, Racing and Travel / Video & Music Reviews Seattle. Dean has been driving my car for a couple weeks now. He is really getting to know the car. I think he wants one. He said the car is FAST and really balanced weight wise. He had it up to 110 and said passing others is well, easy. The car could probably go 130+ but the front end I'm guessing would feel very light. I've seen around 100 to 105 so far. I did drive it across Wyoming at 85-95mph for several hours and got 33mpg. I've never driven it at sea level. The lowest I've had the car is 4000 feet in the SLC area. The only current issue is it has a oil leak in the bell housing area so I have to put a pan under it. Dean doesn't have enough time to fix it before Cambria so I'll live with it till I take the car back to him after the event. I'm really looking forward to meeting a bunch of you in Cambria. I'll be in Costa Mesa the evening of the 25th, later that week in Carpinteria,(I might go by North Hollywood Speedo to see Kevin or TRE on the way up), Cambria, Carpinteria and Costa Mesa again before I drive the car back to Dean in Temecula on the 2nd and fly out of San Diego. I'm still working on the San Deigo Airport to Temecula and back a week later part. If you are in the area send me a PM, email me, cpomares@wwdb.org, and I'll tell you where I'll be.
All the best, Chris

PS- I've had several people email about the seat hinges. I'm still working on it. I'll have a website up seeking input soon.

I thought you might find this interesting. Dyno, engine placement, and a look at a 4 and a 6 in engine bays.

Dean will be sending my engine mount back in about a week. We are going to make a jig for it here in Colorado. After the Excellence article interest has perked up. We will be sending a engine mount and POLO engine to Hong Kong. Doug will be building one in Kansas City. And a 912E is being completed in Europe. That will be 4 so far. This is getting to be great fun.
I hope to have the car at the Phoenix swap in March in LA and the Dana Point 356 event in July. If I have the time we will fabricate custom heat exchanges for the headers between the 2 events.
2013 is looking up.

Seat Recliners

Pictures of my recliners polished and nickeled or chromed in maybe 3 or 4 weeks. I hope to have them on my car at the Phoenix Swap in March.
