Cool Just finisned 914-6 GTS

Yea! We just finished this 914-6 GTS.
We had a great time building it.
It is a 73 chassis that was in great shape with zero rust and no damage.
We installed steel GT fenders and painted it Porsche 993 Cobalt Blue Metallic. We installed 911S front suspension with the alloy brakes with SST lines and a 19mm MC. It has 21mm torsion bars with a 22mm adjustable sway bar and turbo tie rods.
The rear brakes are original 6 calipers and 180 Lb rear springs
We stuffed in a Carrera 3.2L under a GT lid with a chip, headers and a high flow air filter. It put out on our chassis dyno 199 Hp and 188 TQ.
We used a 901 gearbox with the original 6 gear ratios.
It halls butt Man! It's an "A" ticket ride!
We put 7"and 8" x 15 Fuchs with 225s and 245s BFGs
Here is a few pics.

Yummy!! Looks great!

Will the air filter get a rain shield of some sort?

Thumbs up

WoW! Thanks guys!
It really is fun to drive. You can drive it easy or you can kick it and then it flies.
I am very lucky to have a job that I get to do something I love to do. I don't get to keep them. But I love building them.
I have mine, the one I'm gonna keep started now but it will be awhile till its done. Its a 71 914-6 # 430 it's gonna get all the cool stuff.

Markus33: I am gonna drive for a few weeks to make sure there are no bugs. Then it will be for sale.

Dave: Yea! We have already started making a black aluminum
rain shield that will wrap around the top side that mounts with the clamp that holds on the filter.

Kurt:It is a ***** man! As is ALL the sixes.

widebody911: Trust me the 3.2 is plenty and a 3.6 is a lot more work and doesn't fit as easy, and you have to use a 915 trans.

KobaltBlau: It has European Racing Headers 1 5/8" dia. and a stock muffler. I think it's to quite myself.

SeeYa!

Don, I sure hope I'm wrong, perhaps it's an optical illusion but, it looks to me as if the driver side front bumperette is the wrong one. It looks as if it is tilted downward more than it should. If I'm not mistaken, I think the plane of the front faces of the bumperettes are designed to be perpendicular to the ground. It don't look like that in your first image.
