I saw that reporduction shroud sit on top of a 3.6 liter 911 engine missing two cylinders just a few weeks ago, sitting right next to an original engine with the origianl shroud, and the copy could not be closer to the origianl. I asked about the cost and I was told maybe 7k. I can't wait to find out how many years I'll have to scrimp and save to have it.

Dempwolf,

Where did you see that 4 cylinder 911 engine?
Something like that has 2 important things: \"looks\" and \"revs\"...

Roland there is a Spyder devotee right here in southern CA who is banging away on a Spyder Buck (that he made) creating his own aluminum Spyder body. He had both engines there as described previously and the reproduction of the original shroud.

4 Cylinder 911 Motor - Carrera Fan Shroud

Postby MD » Wed Oct 18, 2006 8:16 pm

Hello...This reply is in regards to the recent inquiries about the 4 cylinder 911 motor project that we are currently in development on. This exciting and very special motor will feature power and reliability elements of the latest air cooled 911 design in 2.0 litre and 2.4 litre variants. Our design package will closely resemble that of the original 1950-60's Porsche Spyder-Carrera 4 cam motor. We chose the all metal Carrera fan shroud, as well as other componants produced by Mr. Kuzu, because of his accuracy to factory design, detail and construction that our completed motor will similarly offer. Prototype I is well underway and is projected to be tested by mid year 2007. We will keep this List updated as we continue with our progress. Thank you for your interest. =Michael Doyle= Ventura, CA
