VW based Porsche. In a league of its own.

What is it?

Post by hernandofire » Wed Aug 14, 2013 1:26 pm

Just purchased a trike with (supposedly) a 914/1800 engine. The only # that appears to be on the case that I can see is EA040483. I cannot find anything on line that tells me specs of this engine. Would appreciate any help on this. Thanks, Erod

Yeah some may call it overkill, but you can't have too much overkill.

Note the cases are ~universal, 1.8 P&L may have been installed on a previous rebuild.
1.7 heads would need to be opened up for the 93mm 1.8 jugs, or the jugs tops ODs could have been turned down, but unlikely.
I, for one, regularly embrace our new robot overlords, as I am the guy fixing the robots...
