Do buses use the same engine tin as the Porsche 914?

Not really. They are in there backwards.

The top, rear and back tin is totally different!

Mr. Bubblehead Tue Nov 22, 2005 8:46 am

OK thanks.

top tin of a 1.7 or 1.8 porsche is the same, or close enough to be useable. the upper are different on a 2.0 - spark plug holes in a different location, and most of the outer parts are completely different.

Scott is correct.

I don't believe any of the topside 914 tin is compatible with the bus. The will all require modification. The 914 shouldn't have a switched tube coming from the heaterbox on the bus passenger's side as there is space for a round one.
