Hi Paul,
All good here thank you. Just refubing an Apartment that I bought for my mother in law. Since we lost the old man she has been stuggling, so I managed to find an assisted living place just around the corner from me. I does need a full refit however. So, off the metal bashing tools and onto the DIY ones for a month or so. Gill will be a lot less stressed worrying about the old girl Razz

Then back to the 914!!!!!

Shame about Nick. I was looking to blow a good few Dollars on the engine and gearbox with him. He even said how he liked the idea Dont know
I was thinking 2.4 with individual throttle bodies and stand alone ECU with moddied heads and cams..........

Plan B, along with a few others is a reference thread so I am sure it will hit a million sometime in future as new owners find their way to your thread & we all keep going back to it to look up the finer details.

Chief, I have been in to see Nick a few times over the past few weeks as he finished my engine rebuild and to discuss a new project. He is extremely busy due to an upcoming relocation (only a couple of miles up the road) so is booking 12 to 18 months for an engine build. I will be going up to see him later today so pm if I can be of help.

Hi Mondrian,

Thank you, I'm pleased you have found Plan B useful and the many other really excellent threads. They are relevant because of all the questions and contributions from the Forum members who can learn from our mistakes and hopefully, successes.

Nick has had a little scare but he's ok and he's back firing on all 6 cylinders so it might be worth having another go Chief.

Tell us more about your project Mondrian! Dance Tap

The 964 project is almost finished, its the usual full respray, brakes/suspension upgrade & engine rebuild. New project is a 73 but not sure which direction I will head to yet so just considering various options.
