Post by mutley666 » Wed Jul 18, 2012 4:00 pm

Hi all,
Nearly finished my Covin 911 replica.
It uses a VW type 3 chassis and gearbox and is Left hand drive.
New Paint and new just about everything!!
Its running a VW type 1 engine 2100cc with all the goodies inside. Megasquirt fuel Injection using a 50mm throttle body and bits from a "Mexico Fuel Injection system" Ford EDIS Ignition., Wideband 02 sensor.
Here is a youtube link,

Also some pics of before and after painting!

Oh the exhaust twin silencer is crap so I will be changing that!
I will include more pics when its all done.
Its correctly registered as a Covin on a UK plate.
I would like to sell for 10,000 euros if anyone is interested (Engine and FI system cost me 5500 euros!), Reason- I live in Spain and they wont let me Register it here!
Interested?

Yep. I sold it to a man in Montpellier.
I have a son now so no more projects for a while!!
I also built a custom exhaust/ muffler as the others could not breath enough!!!

Did a classic car show with my mate who has a VW garage.
Check out the youtube video and you will see the car finished, Its at the end of the video in more detail. You can see the custom muffler I made.
The car went like stink and pissed on my mates 911 2.7 on acceleration cause we raced each other after the show!
His is the white 73 911 in the film.
Enjoy.
