Yeah i can't wait for it to be finished. You could check it out in it's current condition if you wanted. Might work on it this weekend.

Shoot just realized who you were! Man our project can't compare to the work you've done for your RS220 project. I'd like to check that out one day.

Update:
Purchased wheel adapters that convert the bolt pattern from 4x130 to 4x100. Wheels we have chosen to go with are a genuine set of 16x7 Volk Te37 in Bronze. Purchased 4 new rotors for all 4 corners. Gonna build a GT engine lid:

But we're marbles to your boulders of power your cars gonna churn out! LOL! One of these days after we get the car running we'll eventually go big boy power and step up to an EJ20T or EJ25T And then our power to weight ratio would really rock! We hope to drop our car down to sub-2k lb range. Minus driver and fully filled with fluids.

Oh we already go the spacer adaptors, i think we paid around $40/each corner.

Just found this. My brother-in-law had an orange 914 till last Spring. It was in incredible shape and if I didn't have too many cars already I would have picked it up. Very clean and very fun to drive. It's only fault was it needed more power, which it appears you guys managed to solve.

Since I don't know jack about Subaru engine codes, did you get a 4 or 6 cyl? I know plenty of people swapping the 3.0 H6's into Syncro Vanagons so as soon as I saw the thread title I assumed the same. I can't see most of your photos since I'm at work and many photo sites are blocked, hence the possibly "dumb" questions.

It's a 2.2 liter 4 cylinder. I think it would be pretty sweet to see an ej25, or an ej22g would be amazing. Either way, post more pictures!
