    It's a great engine. I have had 3 of them including the prototype. Emory has continued to improve them (though the prototype sounds the coolest!)

    My next POLO car?
    Here is a car built a couple miles from my house. I'd love to put a POLO in it. If it was built out of titanium (we've talked about it) I could get it down to about 1300 or 1400 pounds. Fuchs, Boxster Brembo's, GTS seats, 912 gauges, etc. All I can think of is what it would be like to drive a car with my engine that's 6 to 800 pounds lighter. 6 to 7 pounds per horsepower. Now that would be a fun car to drive in the high mountains of Colorado.

    I took the alternator out to have it checked. Rated at 50 amps but produced 60 amps. With fuel injection and the lights on I probably need more like 75 amps. I'll deal with that this winter along with a couple other projects. I took a few pictures. At 8000 miles the engine is dry as Mohave bones! This engine is unreal. Wait till you see the other 912 POLO engines coming down the line. I talked to Dean for about a hour the other evening. A couple of 60 something guys just jacked about what we're doing. 1 in KC, 1 in Spain, 3 in CA, 1 in Asia. One of which is like a 2.8 with a monster cam, BIG ports, etc. My car is FAST, it will be killer. I can't wait for all of us to get together in a year or two for a drive. Over the next year or so I'll have some neat additions for my car. Life is truly very good.

    I put a pan under the oil cooler today so the air wouldn't escape under the cooler. When I drove it home it was 85 degrees and 18% humidity. Oil temp stayed about 195 right where the front cooler thermostat comes on. My guess is it's worth 10 degrees as I usually see 205 to 210 in those conditions.

    Rob,
    I'm afraid each car is just enough different that it would require a custom fit. Maybe someone could make a slightly oversize plastic one that each person could trim. Or create the software that customers could use with their 3D printers. I will leave that to the software writers. But thanks for the compliment.

    A opportunity not related to Porsche's has come my way so the car is on the market. I can be reached at cspomares@gmail.com to answer questions or to attain my phone number.. The price has been reduced quite a bit from 185 to 135. I will be selling it at a loss. The POLO engine is now about 40K and the engine management another 10k. So just the engine would be about 50k to duplicate in another car. The list of tasteful custom touches is almost endless.
    If you don't know about this car go to www.PompoloDesign.com.

    The engine for the next 912 with a POLO

    It has Ti rods, CMW heads, LN cylinders. Dean and the customer are looking for 240 hp. This Polo has 78mm stroke, 105mm bore (approximately 2.7 ltrs), 54mm intake valves, and 43.5mm exhausts.
