Porsche 914, 914/6 & 916 Engine Specifications

Under the Hood... Make that "Engine Lid"

The table below depicts the factory engine specification and power numbers for the various Porsche 914, 914/6 and 916 models. Torque and horsepower numbers have been converted to U.S. measurement units using the currently accepted SAE Net standard. Porsche 914 Driver's Manuals, Service Manuals and other factory documentation from which this data was gathered use a variety of measurement units (Metric HP and kilopond-meters) and standards (SAE Gross and/or DIN), thereby preventing accurate comparison. Briefly described, SAE Net measurements are taken at the flywheel with standard accessory load factored in the calculation.

Note that non-U.S. specification 1973-1976 Porsche 914 2.0L cars were equipped with flat-headed pistons (as opposed to the dished U.S. spec pistons) resulting in an 8.0 : 1 compression ratio and correspondingly higher power numbers. Our apologies for the lack of non-U.S. specification 1.8L ("AN" engine) power numbers; we'll fill in that gap once we obtain factory data.
