If you have about $2400 to do it right, the B16 is a good swap even in its stock form. Even better, put it in a 86-87 Rex. There's more fabrication involved, but it's an even lighter car. My hatch is...

914 sitting on a flatbed trailer in Chatsworth

It's blue, it looks like a 75 in need of some major love. That, or ready for parting out.

It's parked in a big empty lot at the corner of Variel & Plummer.
Anyone know who owns it?

Wanna sell...

Thanks for weighing in on this... but the job is nearly done.
I'm sidelined right now because of a dented injector housing in my left intake mani, but that will hopefully get cured this week.
