I would want 5 bolt so I could get bigger vented brakes if my car had a 2.7 in it.
Hey, that's exactly what I did with my narrow body conversion that has a 2.7 MFI RS engine in it.
I put 914-6 GT calipers in the rear and alloy S calipers up front with both ends getting vented rotors.

Cool -6 conversion values

A -6 conversion is valued in its execution. The conversion market is the more emotional market. A -6 conversion designed to mimic a GT is like a 911 made into an RS clone. At least it has a "real" counterpart one might compare to. Everything else? well, comes down to buyer and seller.

Jurgen Roth - our local German collector-broker-exporter-expert says the current $$$ market is strictly interested in pristine condition and "originality & numbers matching" -

we can read the same consensus in almost every car magazine & after-auctions blog nowadays

-4 conversions simply can't compete in that atmosphere

- one might buy this $50K conversion 914World.com - The largest online 914 community!

and almost never drive it & maybe 10 yrs hence it might be worth original cost - so long as there is no economic recession and we aging -6 cult cognoscenti do not check out of the hobby - if we regularly drive it, the elements will take a toll & it's just another used car & value as above: "... well, comes down to buyer and seller"

imho any aircooled 911 is a 'way safer "investment" bet if one has $50K to drop on a toy

Two data points.

A friend bought a 3.2 conversion about 18 months ago, done nicely, for $40k and sold a couple of months ago for $35k.

I just bought a 2.2 conversion for $27.5k. Needs ~$2k in detail stuff.
