Porsche 914 Racecar

Here is a cool video of the car on the dyno for the first time. It took me exactly 4 months to go from the 911 2.7L engine to this Subaru engine.

Recently rebuilt the fuel system using a JAZ pro-mod drag racing tank.

Placing the tank in the stock location not only allowed an elevative position in relation to the fuel pump, it also allow me to fab up a new firewall to separate the radiator heat from the fuel system.
