Drove it 25 miles today.

The engine pulls from 1500 to 6500. With only 25 miles I haven't run it to 7200 yet. It is very different than a 6. It doesn't come on to cam so to speak. It just pulls right out of the hole all the way up. And thats with 1.75 inch headers and 50mm throttle bodies. I was worried I would't have much bottom end torque. It has plenty. Quite fast for a 912. I'm sure it's not as fast as a big 6. I think it could probally stay with the 2.2 to 2.4 cars. At maybe 2090 to 2110 lbs it doesn't have to work very hard. That's at 5000 to 6000 feet here in the Denver area. At sea level it would be even stronger.

I had the pleasure of meeting Chris and his wife ( and the car & engine) in person.

Great folks and a terrific project.

One of the cleanest long hoods I've ever seen.

Here are a few more pics

Cool gauges!
What kind of injection are you using?
I am putting a Polo in a 356 that I just bought!

Thanks,
Dave

Fuel injection

The engine has full engine mangement. I had it installed by Richard Clewett. It has a Electromotive Tec-GT ecu. One of Richard's crank fire triggers, and 4 TWM 50mm throttle bodies. It runs 1 3/4 inch stainless headers. The engine comes to life at about 2500rpm. As I've only put about 500 miles on it and it hasn't seen a dyno yet the programing isn't done yet.

Hi Chris,

We talked about the car briefly at European Collectibles' open house last March.
Great to see it altogether.

If you ever have it in LA, there's lots of Pelicans who'd like to take a look.

Btw, what's the shop the car was in? Looked fantastic.

Craig

The shop in Denver

Craig,
The shop is Racekraft & Design. It's run by Brad Burry. You should be able to find them on the internet.
I talked to Jeff Trask at European Collectables the other day. Nice guy.
Chris

Updated pictures

Seats and rear shelf are in. I hope to get the custom engine tin in next week.
Suspension bushings, SC t bars and a ECU tune to come. I've been studing the Electromotive Tec-Gt ECU manual I downloaded off of Richard Clewett's web site. Hopefully when I'm done I'll understand what he's trying to tell me 1000 miles away in Colorado.

Engine compartment tin installed.

Underside has heat reflective material. It's nice to take it for a drive and not suck up muffler heat and road dust. Now I can detail the engine.

ID Plate

I added a ID plate. DP902-1. Dean Polopolus built, 902 body, and the 1st 902 to get a POLO engine. There might be more in the future, but there can only be 1 #1.

Great stuff, any ideas on how much it weighs? and the hp? I'm sure if people saw those numbers they'd be jealous.

I'm not sure at this time. The car weighed 2084 pounds with the orginal engine. My guess now would be 2125 ish. Heavier engine and SS muffler. Lighter starter and mag case transmission. I've been colecting front suspension pieces. When I get all the parts the car will have the front suspension upgraded and front/rear bushings replaced and the car aligned. I'll have it weighed at that time.
My engine is 2/3rds of a 993 engine. 993 heads, 100mm bore and 76.4 stroke= 2400cc's. As far as HP I could only guess. I need to get Richard Clewett out here to Colorado to tune the ECU and dyno it. Almost all these engines have a short 356 type of exhaust and have carbs and distributors. Mine has full engine management and a 911 type exhaust. So I don't really know the HP yet. A wild guess at sea level would be 175 to 200. At 5000 feet here in Denver, 150 to 175. I'm running 4 50mm throttle bodies and 1 3/4 header tubes yet this engine makes good torque all the way down to 2500-3000 rpm. It seems to come on cam about 4000 rpm and goes to 7200 in a hurry. As a POLO engine has never been done this way only time will tell.

Car is getting tuned and dynoed 4-21 by Richard Clewett.

I'll try and do one of these in the Colorado High Country this summer. This guy has a 53 356 with a 901 5speed and a 2.6 Polo engine if I have my information correct.
