Default Porsche 914 - 8 GTT The Build Begins

Hello 914 community,

Just wanted to let you all in on a 914 build to remember. This car was initially thought out on a napkin sketch, and has slowly been coming to life. The idea behind this project is simple, how would Porsche go about creating a 914 cup car today? Well, hopefully when the build is done, it'll meet our racing derived expectations that only a manufacturer like Porsche could (re) produce. Completion date is for SEMA '13 in November, and running, wish us luck!

Brief Technical Specs (will list more as the build progresses):
-1974 Porsche 914 fully assembled by MSDSinc.

-Cayenne V8 TT 5.0 litre, derived from 2010 Daytona Prototype engineering, built by Lozano Brothers Porting (1000 / 1100 whp)

-Porsche 996 GT2 Transmission, built by California Motorsports

Some of you may ask why, we asked why not?


Enjoy,
Matthew Schneider
www.msdsinc.com

This is the condition that we bought her in,










Don't know why I started cleaning this, it'll be replaced with new sheet metal fit for the Cayenne TT engine




Custom racing seat!








The 996 GT2 Transmission fully built by California Motorsport (CMS) for our 1000/1100 whp needs.



All about the details!



Sheridan wide body kit



Carrera GT Exhaust Tips!!!



The heart of the beast when it was first received



What the engine will 99.9% look like when finished, and yes this is the 2010 Daytona Prototype (and Cayenne V8 all motor) winning car that you were just trying to remember.



Messing around with some ideas, just pretend you see a roof



lunch time at the shop



Many more updates to follow, stay tuned!

I think one or two of my little trinkets might be inside of that gearbox.

Nice project.

Hello Rennlist - 914 community,

Here's the projects latest update. Please, excuse the picture sizes as some were taken on my phone and others on a point & shoot camera.

Here you can see the 35+ years of Germany's finest glue coming off the aluminum trim from the A pillar. Also, if anyone is looking for near perfect 914 aluminum trim pieces PM me.



These are the clear tail lights that came in from Auto Atlanta. They'll fit right in for that modern look we're going for.



Cutting out the trunk floor pans



Removing the rear view mirror from the windshield, boy was that fun....NOT!


Removing the wire harness



And completely out! Pictures don't show the work it took to get this all out in one piece justice. PM me if you're interested in this.



Several Engine pics just in from Lozano Brothers Porting. Here you can see the cylinder head porting they have done.



Here is the oil pump being fit, notice no oil pan as it is currently being CNC'd for bottom clearance.



Oil Pump side view, and no you're not trippin' out, the picture is upside down to show the engine right side up.





Here is the block with the iron sleeves fitted



This is the carbon fiber dash that will bring that race car elegance to our project, can't wait till it's finished!



What the dash will primarily look like. (Picture taken from another forum member's car).



Here is a pic from Neo914's car. This is what we need for our new headlights, if anyone knows anyone who has / makes or is willing to produce a pair please PM me.



Air intake box idea from BBI's fabricator, "The_Fabricator" of Instagram, we'll be utilizing two of these for the twin turbo set up



Throwing around some ideas for the turbos, how cool would this be!?
Photo courtesy of EuroTuner



One thing is for sure though, our welds wont look like this!


And how could I leave you without your daily afternoon dose of eye candy. This pic should really be rated NSFW, but her top is still on so I guess it's okay?

Hello community! Here is a small update, but too cool not to post!

The quality and craftsmanship that went into this Carbon Fiber dash piece is bar none the best.

I think it'll look great with the black texuede sp I got to cover the dash with for that exotic race feel.

Enjoy,















Well that's it for the carbon fiber dash for now, but I'll be sure to post more dash pics once the texuede sp arrives.

Not to leave you so soon, here are some pics of the bulbs for the tail lights:

Over 120 LEDs per bulb! (excluding the smaller ones of course)

It was purchased through a 914world.com member, Ruby914.

While not a V8, still a cool turbo set up
