This is the ultimate 356/912 engine! It's the result of 12 years of testing and development by John to produce a street engine that is super durable, cool running, provides a radical improvement in the 1000 - 5500 rpm power band (right where most of us drive), and can be assembled without exotic machining, clearancing, and requires no knowledge beyond that of the average 356 mechanic. The engine width or cylinder spacing does not increase, and the stock engine tin and stock muffler fit just like original. The WR 2.1 liter kit has been designed for use with stock Solex 40P11 carbs, stock exhaust system, and stock 200mm clutch and flywheel. The new WR Cylinder Heads make for the ultimate set up, but the engine can also be built using stock 356 C/SC or 912 heads if desired.
When combined with the new WR heads this engine will produce a very conservative 145hp at approximately 6K rpm and over 145lbft of torque at 5000 rpm. With the addition of the WR Torque Boosters, the torque increases to 150lbft and the curve becomes wider and flatter. Throttle response is instant with no flat spots or running issues. Of course, up to 160hp is easily possible with carburetor and exhaust changes, but experience has shown that most 356 and 912 owners want a good power increase without sacrificing driveability and fuel mileage. The WR 2.1 liter has been designed as a complete package with that in mind.
The kit includes all the parts listed below along with complete instructions for case/head boring, assembly instructions, carb jetting, and distributor timing adjustments.:
Total Kit Price: $8,676.90
