Knowing what engine you have in your 914 can be invaluable. Many 914s have had engine swaps over the years - a 1.7 can easily become a 2.0. The problem arises when the 2.0 comes from a VW Bus which is not a suitable sub for a Porsche 914 2.0 engine. Use the chart below to know what you're buying...or what you've got. Engine swaps that turn a four cylinder 914 into a six cylinder 914 are also common and easily detected by checking the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). All original 914-6 models should have a VIN veginning with the digits "914". The four cylinder cars have the beginning three digits indicating the they a a "four" and the model year....as in a VIN beginning with 472 being a 1972 four cylinder car.
