Hello everyone, just wanted to introduce myself.

My name is Mats, I'm 41 years old and live in Sweden, I'm a CAD engineer/designer by trade and work for a local manufacuring company.

In my spare time in the last three years I've restored and modified a 1974 Porsche 914. Stock it came with an aircooled 4 cylinder 1970 cc engine that ran on D-jetronic injection achieving a scary 95 horsepower. I've had the engine built, bored and stroked to a 2276 cc engine with higher compression. I've converted it to ITB's and individual LS2 coils. The ecu is a MaxxEcu from Swedish Maxxtuning. The ecu inputs are a 36-1 crank trigger wheel and a custom distributor replacement sensor that enables full sequential injection.

The fuel system is all new lines, a Bosch fuel pump and an adjustable FPR set to 3 Bar. I've also fitted the fuel system with an E85 sensor to give me the possibility to run the car on E85 if I want too. Injectors are Bosch 350 cc/min brown ones from a Saab 9-5 Aero.

I hope to start the engine up before the end of 2016 and hopefully get it tuned on a local company well ahead april and then enjoy the short Swedish summer.

I bought the starter pack as a christmas gift for myself and look forward to learning more about EFI tuning.

Hi Mats,

Welcome to HPA. That is a lovely looking 914, I don't suppose you'd fancy sharing more pictures and progress in a build thread on the forum?

Done. :)

Very nice car , and nice christmas gift also !
