2056 E Engine for Porsche 912E cars


(price as configured)
The 1976 Porsche 912E was a one-year-only vehicle produced to be an alternative to the 911 enthusiast that wanted a cheaper and more simple vehicle. There are many stories of why Porsche did this, and basically, I don’t care why they did it! The minute I saw a 911 body with my most favorite engine from the factory, the Type 4 – I wanted one!

The first of the engines I designed is compatible with the 912Es unique fuel injection system. The German word “Einspritzung” is where the “E” in 912E originated. The EFI system on the 912 is a mixture of 914 and VW Bus “D” and “L” jet componentry and is unique in its self. This system is still intact on many 912Es and is a great system. The stock EFI system is great for driver friendliness but suffers as age starts to take effect on its parts. Some of the parts for the EFI system were only used on the 912E and are absolutely obsolete in new or used form. The engine I have developed uses the stock EFI system and maximizes it.Due to the characteristics of the factory 912 EFI system, very few modifications in Horsepower can be SAFELY made to the 912E fuel injected engine without risk of leaning the engine out and causing problems.

With the 912s weight, all that is needed is a few more ponies and an increased powerband. The wider powerband delivers better power, and increase fuel economy, as well as acceleration and top end speed.The 2056E version is an engine that has proven that with a cam change, 2mm increase in bore size, and slightly increased compression ratio that the engine can develop 12-15over the factory HP rating and still live just as long, if not longer than a stock engine AND EVEN RUN COOLER in most cases.The major difference is the broad powerband that the engine delivers its power through. This is a bigger performance upgrade than the added 10 extra ponies at the HP peak, as most driving is done at 4,000RPM or below.

The weakest part of any TIV engine is the cylinder heads, especially the stock 2.0 914 heads that came on the 912E. All our engines receive head modifications with our LE 180 cylinder heads being used as a standard upgrade. The LE180 CNC heads on the 912E flow nicely for this size engine so port work is not needed..The heads are the most important part of the 912E/914-4 engine.

If you want the ultimate “Einspritzung” engine for your 912E, without a doubt this is the one. I choose not to disclose any specs internally, they took too long to perfect and way too much trial and error testing to get right. If you choose our service for your 912E it will receive the best balance and blueprint work and will receive a thorough workout on our dyno as well.

Due to the uniqueness of the 912E powerplant, we MUST receive your complete core 912E engine to include exhaust and full fuel injection system to be able to create an engine for your car.

Pricing and Ordering

Prices for our Turn Key, complete Dyno Proven engines are posted at the top of each engine offering. Select an engine package from the navigation bar on the left side of your screen then see the pricing tab for the prices of that base engine; which most of the time even includes options. See also our Engine Wizard to create your own custom engine!

Anytime that something is “Custom built” you can typically expect to both pay more (initially) for the product and also receive more from it. There is no exception to this rule with our engines here at Aircooled Technology. Our engines are created with a Pedigree that follows them everywhere they go, all over the world.

You will not find any other Engine Builder in this industry that does business the way that we do. Here we work from a Proposal basis from very specific documents that will outline the entire build and it’s cost from the very beginning. I conduct business the old fashioned way meaning I’m point blank and I’m both fair and firm. Some customers that are accustomed to today’s modern ways of doing business are taken aback by my direct way of getting to the point and getting the job done. None of them regret spending their hard earned money with my company or having me create their engine..

Here I do not believe in fine print or grey areas in contracts or misleading people with misrepresentations of what I can do for them. I try my best to be open with the customer from the first phone call all the way till the time they drive the car for the first time.

If you want my engine I will sell it to you, not someone that gets paid a commission because he is a smooth talker. As the Founder of this company I have personally sold every aircooled engine that we have created; and that will never change.
