    If you haven't taken the time to watch the utube video at the top of the thread I highly encourage you to do so.
    Also check out the 912 Renegades forum at the 912 Regristry.

    Wowzer it is an impressive motor, but is that what it costs! Can buy you buy it in kit form though? Does that make a saving?

    As I understand, Dean sells the custom case, custom crankshaft, custom cams, and a few other parts like fan shround and distributor gear. You then need to source everything else from a 911. You then mill down the cam carriers and plug some oil galleries, mill the valve covers, then take apart the oil pump and mill it down. Then you need ignition and fuel injection- the EFI ITBs are cool and high performance. Then you get to put it all together, but not just like rebuilding a 911 engine. You are making this engine work for the first time like an outright constructor.
