Eric @ PMB was kind enough to pick up my primo fresh 3.0 with 3.2 heads with custom cam with 46 PMO’s blueprinted and balanced to race tolerances from Scott Kinder at Kindersport in Oakland, CA area.
The engine should be good for 240HP matted to a 901 Transmission Rebuilt 2000 Miles ago by Performance Haus in 1980 with hand polished close ratio 906 gears Late model "side shift" linkage, Adjustable 19mm front sway bar with Teflon bushings, Bilstein Carrera RS front struts, Bilstein rear shocks, Modified front early 911S brakes and PMB vented 914-6 rears. Done by the Maestro Eric himself. Lots of more goodies on the car first reworked in the 70’s. It was a project car of a guy that worked at a OC local Porsche speed shop. This has always been a California car. It has never seen salt and has no rust. This car has been at PMB for a couple of years waiting for the Engine. Number 41 is from what we know to be the 30th. 914-6 in production. I am sure I will hear something from someone that knows more. This car has not been on the road in CA since the early 80s when it would not pass smog. It had a 69S engine when I bought it.

The 911 engine is really a thing of ART, well all Porsche/VW parts when clean and polished /painted are art. The cam timing is critical. Scott sent me several pictures from the build. Eric’s work at PMB is also a work of art.
More to come!

Some of the guys have asked what is in this Engine. Scott Kinder built it for me and this is what it has inside.

1978 3.0 SC big-port base (case, crank, rods, oil pump)
Custom JE Pistons, replated Nikasil cylinders, 9.8:1
New valves, 38/37 ports (stock)
ARP head studs & rod bolts
GE40 "Mod-S" cams
PMO 46 carbs & manifolds
JWE custom curve on SC distributor to match the carbs/cams
930 tensioners, idler arms--all rebuilt
Otherwise just everything new or refinished, redone, rebuilt

Best
Scott

Very nice, Bob! But I think that engine is going to be stronger than 240 HP. It'll be really nice.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) I was thinking the same when I read the specs. Are you planning on going with one inch exhaust? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Scott (the engine builder) was up in the San Francisco and the dyno guy was in San Diego and well, we where getting impatient with the long wait so Eric said lets just get it back to my shop and we will finish the tune and the first breaking in at PMB.

We will get it on a dyno when it is done. We will let you know. The build of #41 will be a little out of order as I did a lot of work on her way before Eric picked her up to take her back to PMB for the full show quality paint job and restoration. Some of the back-story I posted on my 914World VIN info but I will put what info was in the ad when I bought #41 in December of 2007. It was on EBay and I was on a Disney Cruz and using the on board Internet to bid. I think it was $15,000.

Bob Burton

This is the info from the Ebay ad from the PO when I got the car, Dec.27th 2006
As I said this was a real 914-6 Porsche/VW hot rod built in the 70’s with some of the best stuff they could find at there shop.

This is a great project car for the right person. I bought it in 1980, and stopped driving it when it couldn't pass smog. It last ran in 1990 and has been stored under cover in my garage since 1990. Before I owned it, it was a project car of a guy that worked at a local Porsche speed shop. This has always been a California car. It has never seen salt and has no rust. Engine 2.5 L 20k Miles Aluminum case 2.2. Rods EMPI, 88 mm pistons and cylinders, Ported heads and manifolds 40 IDS Weber Carbs, CD ignition, 911S Distributor 67 911S Cams Front 914/6-GT oil cooler with GT ducting, Aeroquip Stainless Steel Lines and oil thermostat, Sport Muffler, Transmission Rebuilt 2000 Miles ago by Performance Haus, 911S copper faced clutch, Hand polished close ratio 906 gears Late model "side shift" linkage, Suspension Adjustable 19mm front sway bar with Teflon bushings, Bilstein Carrera RS front struts, adjustable perches, Bilstein rear shocks, Modified front 911S calibers with cross-drilled "S" rotors Five 15x7" BBS modular rims Magnesium centers Titanium lug nuts, 12mm torsion bars. Body
Body seams bead welded Fuel filler moved to cowl. Aircraft style cover Side markers removed European front turn assemblies, French tail light lenses Factory Convex RH mirror
Quartz Iodide headlights European 911S gages including oil level
LeCarrera steering wheel Scheel 914 seat.-------
I have had many questions about the fuel filler area. Peter Dawe of Dawe's Motorsports helped build this car at Dick Troutmans's in the late 70s. I asked Petr how this was done, below is his answer.

Hi Lloyd From what i can remember the hinge and the flush mount latch was aircraft surplus. I believe all those parts are offered thru Aircraft Spruce Co. Peter welded a shaped piece of steel under the body cowl for the gas door to sit on. He also welded a fill pipe on to the gas tank. (Only for pros to weld) Then because of the pipe bends he had to put a vent from the original fill to the neck so the tank could be filled up to the top. All this was 20 years ago but I think that’s about it. But you have to be as talented as Peter to do it right. That’s the TRICK. Thanks and happy holidays Petr Dawe

Please note that #41 was put in the garage of PO after it would not pass smog in Dec of 1985. It sat till I bought it 25 or so years later. Picture of plates for 41 plus the picture of Scheel Sport seat that I cleaned up today. My ass is too big for the Scheel.

Eric said eat salads. I eat them every day.

Hopefully some my 1-5/8 heat exchangers (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif). That will ensure it can breathe

I have the factory heat exchangers that where on the car and they are in pretty good shape. I sold the 10/69-date muffler that was on the car on ebay for $300. The PMP
Maestro E, will tune in on this input.

The stock heat exchangers will most likely be your choke point on this but will maintain great low end TQ.

I am still trying how to figure my build in order because we have only shown #41 from the point when Eric picked her up. I am going to address the before and after in a way I think I can, I will also sent E all of my pictures that I took before PMB took over. I had done a lot of work on my car. Some not so great but we spent a shit load of time scraping and wire wheeling off all the crap from the body. Removed the paint with paint remover repainted some of the suspension. My 80gal. real 5 hp compressor from a body shop helped with the air tools and the fact that I had a body shop next door to my plastics factory. I have over 100 shots before Eric got her.

A couple of shots of heat exchangers and muffler when I got the car.
