until this adapter kit, there has been no way to mate the Boxster transaxles to the Subaru engines. The adapter kit including the flywheel is my own design.

Actually no, this is a budget build. You'd be suprised...

Also, it helps when you can do all the work yourself

I posted on the club site and the world site a while ago. There is definetly interest in the 914 community too. I'm also aiming at the kit car industry for people who want a mid-engine car but don't want to use the LSx engines.

I see the custom flywheel comment. I was about to ask how you rigged up the starter...actually what is that starter from? I don't recognize it.

It will use a Subie starter. The reason that starter doesn't look "quite right" is because one of the motors is missing. That starter is my mock-up starter. It's just a phase 1 starter I stole from my Legacy GT project.

Glad to see that are getting this started. I'll have to swing by the shop to check it out.

I absolutely love frankenstein swaps. This one looks very well done so far. I'll have to remember the name of this shop in case I ever get the ae86 I've been dreaming about.

I like the idea of this swap too. If I hadn't just gotten my 914 trans rebuilt, the idea of mating it up to a donor boxster 6spd sounds awesome too.

I see there are few of us from Arizona watching this one.

I finally got the exhaust finished today. I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. I still need to add two double slip joints in between the cylinder banks, some wastegate dump supports, and a couple of O2 bungs, but other than that, it's done. This first system is only 304 SS but I made sure to carefully purge everything, and all of the welds are full penetration welds rather than the standard "automotive style" welds so it will have the best possible chance of surviving. Also, the turbo is supported by a 1/4" thick plate bracket so the actual exhaust tubing isn't holding any weight other than it's own. If the 304 doesn't survive, then I will do the second set in 321 and see how long that lasts.

That shouldn't be a problem. I kept the tubing as low as possible, and it follows the same route as the stock Boxster exhaust on that side. I'm gonna do a lot of heat wrap and shielding too.
