Here are the facts….
With our MassIVe DTM cooling system it is possible to remove your stock engine, in its entirety. The stock engine can be stored for originality purposes, so when you sell the car you have maintained its originality. When fitting the TIV power plant you will not need any of the stock 912 engine parts for the conversion, so your original engine can be put in safe keeping for later.
The TIV engine with the MassIVe DTM cooling system and our conversion modified flywheel will slide directly into your 912-901 gearbox. The installation also DOES NOT REQUIRE ANY CUTTING OF YOUR 912 OR MACHINING OF THE TIV ENGINE!!!
Since the 912 and the 914 that your new Raby engine was derived from both share the 901/02 transaxle from the factory, trust that the integration of the engine and transaxle will be seamless. Your 912 transaxle may benefit from gearing alterations, which we can chat about in the phone consultation you’ll be scheduling with me soon after reading this information.
When the TIV is converted with a MassIVe DTM shroud this is the end result- A reliably powerful engine! If you want one of our complete MassIVe conversion engines that can make 160BHP with a few modifications and a dose of our “attention. With the TIV added displacement does not cost reliability or longevity decreases when done the correct way with a proven recipe.
The TIV engine (of pretty much any displacement) is great in town, or on the highway, so the character of the 912 is enhanced by the addition of the “Factory Big Block” The Type IV!
Being able to have 150HP (performance,2270cc) engine that idles like stock in town and gets 30 MPG, while having a rev capability of 7,000RPM (with performance engines) is absolutely amazing. It really pushes the 912 at any speed, and power is virtually on demand with the vehicles gearing.
The installation of the engine into your vehicle is easy, it installs just like a standard 912 engine, in most cases can be done in about the same amount of time. The 912 has a larger engine bay and the engine will slip right in, with NO CLEARANCE ISSUES.
One of the best parts of our cooling system is that the engine does not look like a 356, 911, or a TI, it looks like something many people have never seen, and that will separate you at car shows and events. The MassIVe DTM has a hint of a nostalgic look, and some people will confuse it with the factory 356/912 engine. I have even had folks think that a converted engine was a 547- 4 Cammer!!! (AKA Carrera engine) and the best part is my engine makes more power than the 4 cam!
With our shroud and a TIV the engine won’t be needing much more than a wipe down, because it simply won’t be breaking any longer- It’s a Raby Engine!
So in one sentence I’ll sum it up…
Add 40-50BHP to your 912, do it easily, and do it for the same or less than rebuilding the factory engine to stock Specifications!
At Aircooled Technology we have been able to create daily driver engines based on our platform that perform at a level on the street to be driven to an Autocross event while trailering their race tires behind them only to achieve top time of the day when competing against modern Porsches and then driven home.
I Love 912s, and I Love my 912E…..make your car a 912E and do what I do with mine….Drive it 160,000 miles in eight years and only open the decklid to show off what you have got, that “THEY” don’t!
Some may lead you to believe that outfitting your Porsche with a “VW Engine” isn’t smart, but remind them that your engine is a Raby Engine, based on the engine used in the Porsche 914/4 and the Porsche 912E. If it ever was a “VW Engine” it certainly isn’t when it leaves the hands of Aircooled Technology.
