    Mark is correct. It works fine as long as the engine isn’t at full song. When it is I’d rather listen to the engine anyways.
    I installed it for the trip from Denver to Palm Springs, Ca. I was asked to display the car in the historic area at the Parade. There are a lot of areas that have no cell service in Western Colorado and Utah. So music will be somewhat hit and miss. My taste leans towards R&B.

    I just added LED lights under the hood. They really make a difference.

    I couldn’t keep the afr in the zone. I finally figured out the efi barometric map sensor was toast. I just drove from 5 to 10,000 feet and the afr is perfect. I have fought this for 2 years. I don't know why it took so long to figure it out. I’m a happy camper.

    Chris, Really great looking car and engine. Wondering what the cost window is for a Polo 2.4 EFI engine?

    You will have to talk to Dean Polopolus. The POLO is his product. Go to www.polomotor.com. The supplier of my EFI, Electromotive, seems to be out of business. At this point I would probably go Motec/Jenvey.
    My engine with 993 parts makes 190ish hp at sea level. Maybe 160-170 here in Denver. We all loose 3% for every 1000 feet of elevation in a NA car. So maybe 125 HP at 12,500 feet. In the last 10 years some of the builders who use Dean's kits and other aftermarket custom parts are now getting 230 to 250 hp at sea level. Those engines are bumping up to 100K. If you want a budget hotrod stick with a hypo 6. I've never wanted a tribute car or what everybody else has built. In everything I do I want to make something I've never seen before. Something unique at that time. There are about 8 to 10 of these cars on the road globally today and more in the works. If I sold my car I'd have to make something else.
    I'm glad I built my car 10 years ago. It's had many upgrades over the years but the main costs, a very clean 912, and the engine were a fraction of todays cost.
    I make $100 an hour building these POLO cars. Most of the shops are around $150 plus here in Denver. Labor is a big part of the overall cost of any project these days. DIY guys who work in their own garage don't have all the overhead. When I'm working on my car I'm not making $100 and hour on someone else's car. I factor the hours I spend on my car into how much it would cost to replace it. The shops who work on my Audi and my wife's Mercedes are over $165.00 and hour. When I take those cars in I almost never leave for under $1000.00. Even doing most of the work as I did, I couldn't reproduce it for $250K. It would probably be north of $300.

    The Polomotor website seems to be a dead link. However, I recently learned there is another company offering semi-bespoke, highly upgraded 2.4L 4-cylinder engines for a 912. https://powerhausvwparts.com/shop/ol...er-carburetors There is one running around Denver, and I had the occasion to drive it last week. Very impressive for about $10,000 to $17,000 all-in.
