Pauter Products

Why don't we here anything about these cylinder heads form Pauter?

Are they strictly racing without enough cooling fins for street use?

I wonder what the deal is with the square intake ports?

Anybody know a price or have experience?

I guess the statement "Type 4 Pauter racing heads ..." means pretty-much that - racing heads.

They're machined for customized intake manifolds (forced induction; FI or carbs) and exhausts systems, and high RPM use. Heat dissipation isn't a major factor, since they're probably predominantly used in drag racing applications (quarter-mile and it's over). I can imagine the valvetrain costs a small fortune also.

But than again, anything can be adapted to work on anything if you have enough time and $$$. Off the shelf bolt-on? Fagetaboutit.

Pauter's parts are VERY well made (bullet proof) and expensive since they are all limited production items. The heads are type 1 based so the exhaust ports come out the sides and not the bottom and as far as I know, no one mades an exhaust system that will work on a 914 since the engines in our cars sit backwards! The intake requires their intake manifold and electronic injection as carbs can't cut it. The last time I checked, the heads are not legal for SCCA, PCA or vintage racing but are allowed in drags and off-road. Their 3.5 liter motor (4 cylinder) with injection puts out a conservitive 350HP! I use their stroker crank, rods and rockers in my big (2.8l) four and they are great. The people there are great to deal with and I have had good luck with them. Good luck.
