HI - I'm visiting from the 944 board - I've seen a little bit about 914 conversions made to incorporate a chevy small block V8 engine(yikes!), and I'm wondering if anybody knows how the engine would be mounted, i.e. is it mounted sideways (with the "v" visible from the side) or is it mounted "normally" with the "v" running front to back?

And if it is mounted sideways, how in the world is the drive line connected?

PART OF THIS ARANGEMENT IS THE CHEVY IS SET UP TO HAVE THE
TRANSMISSION MOUNTED DIRECTLY TO THE MOTOR . THE PORSCHE HAS THE TRANNY AT THE OTHER END OF THE CAR . THE CONVERSION INVOLVES
A SPECIAL CLUTCH DISC FOR THE CHEVY CLUTCH THAT HAS PORSCHE SPLINES
AND A TORQUE TUBE ADAPTER . THERE ARE MANY OTHER SMALL PROBLEMS .
I HAVE BEEN HELPING A FRIEND DO THIS TO A 928 USING AN LT1
CORVETTE ENGINE . WE HAVE MADE MOST OF THE PARTS OURSELVS .
DOUG FOUND A SOURCE FOR THE CLUTCH DISC THAT IS NOT TOO EXPENSIVE .
THE KIT IS GOOD BUT WAAAY TOO EXPENSIVE .

Chev v-8 in a 914 makes a real car outta it...easy conversion for the cost of a slug 2.0 rebuild

chevy in a 914 fits end for end and actually much nicer and cleaner then a stock 914 oil leaker
