Well if you are looking for a 914 long block with the dome pistons. Good luck the are NLA.
The only 1.7 pistons are dished for a bus and Cofab brand.
Is your car FI or Carbed?

My stock1.7 FI is going under the knife next week. I am having my rebuild with new Mahle Pistons done for a little less than $1500. The pistons take up most of the $$$. $1100 with out the pistons. Thats everything.... Also being rebuild by 30 year air cooled verterans. Not to mention they are matching the internet parts prices, well, most of them.

I also failed to mention the engine is out of the car. That saves a lot of money too.
