D'Ingianni Porsche 916

  Engine Transplant

Acquisition * Donors * Body Modifications * First Debut * Transplant * Starting Over * Tricks

The power plant for the D'Ingianni Porsche 916 is a transplanted 1985 3.2 Liter 911 engine with only 50K original miles before the overhaul.

Wes Hildreth of H&H Enterprises in Plano, TX is responsible for building the engine and transmission.  I left the 6-cylinder rebuild to a real pro with numerous conversions under his belt.



A custom designed air conditioner compressor mount was designed by Wes Hildreth.


Standard 914-6 sheet metal is used.
