914 with 2.4 engine

I was looking at a early 914 in very nice condition. The owner had taken the 1.7 and "bored" it to a 2.4. The car ran and drove very nicely, but I was wondering if there are any tolerance issues or reliability issues with this type of "enhancement". (1.7 to 2.4)

Must be a 78x103 motor which uses steel cylinders. They tend to warp after 30k miles and start to leak oil.

Find out what crank was used and what rods were used when it was assembled. If it is what is known as a "short rod" motor then the rods can break at high RPMs (6k or so). If it was a forged crank and after market forged rods then it should be strong. Also ask if it has a cam with type 1 lifters as that is done sometimes when building hotrodded engines. Good luck

78X103 would be a 2.6 liter.

Actually, cast iron 103s are lucky to see past a dyno session or 10,000 miles without a head leak starting!
