    Why

    The patches are from Porsche. There are 2 numbers on the sku tag. MAP10400208 and WSR8090102S710

    Why put this engine in a 912. Because. Also it's a 4 not a 6. It hasn't been done it before. 30 plus people have already put one in a 356. It weighs about 100 lbs less and has about 6 inches less engine overhang than a 911. If I wanted a 6, I would have bought a 911 for a lot less. 911's are awesome cars. But I wanted to do something different. People have asked me my whole life why I do what I do. I have never felt the need to fit in. I have always asked why didn't someone do this before, in just about everything I've ever done. This car makes perfect sence to me. It will probally weigh around 2150 lbs up from 2078. It should make 2.4 E or S hp and torque with new car smoothness with full engine management. Be lighter in the butt end, and handle very nice. And at least for a short period of time, it will be the only one in the world.

    Play these utubes. Close you eyes and listen. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. 911's have a wonderful sound. But for me the POLO engines sound is worth the price of admission.

    Uh, I was asking why did the previous poster say you need to turn the engine mount bar around. I think he thought about the 911's engine bay motor mounts.

    Chris- Remember that it's going in a 912. The motor mounts
    are forward of the 911 location.

    I have a friend who has a Polo motor in his highly modified 356 Speedster....It is in a word...incredible...2.4L 4 cyl. 48 IDA webers...the intake sound is almost as loud as the exhaust...and together the soundi will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

    Sorry for the long explaination. I didn't see the previous statement and you already know why as you know Craig Smith and his son.
    But for some that might wonder why. Now they know. There are many ways to put these cars together and I enjoy reading about what others do. Each persons idea for their Porsche is just as valid. I tip my cap to all who have Porsche on the brain.

    Sorry that was a rather stupid remark of me. I was thinking about the 911 mounts but the 912 mounts are already placed forward. I didn´t say anything then.

    Personally, I think it makes MORE sense to put the Polo in a 912.....Bravo!
    Hope to see it in the metal at RR.
