Thread: European delivery 68-69 question

    European delivery 68-69 question

    You guys in Europe tend to get "the goods" before we get them here...or at least you did back then. Is it possible that Porsche built some 2.0 MFI engines in late 68? Is it possible that they were available in euro 68 as Porsche transitioned from the SWB chassis to the LWB chassis, and the engines transitioned from Webers to MFI? Maybe something came out of the "werks" area? No I don't have a mystery engine or chassis...seeking provenance, but I do have some ideas on a potential SWB "build", and I'd like to find some things out before I decide what direction to head.

    I figure you guys in Europe probably already know the answer to these silly questions...

    Anybody on the board have MFI in a SWB car?

    Nobody? Hmmm...
    High butterfy 2.5 SS in a SWB car... sounds like fun.
    This one probably ought to be done on a 911 chassis me thinks.
