Discussion groups and BBSs

Pelican Parts 914 BBS    Great BBS with terrific technical help.
914 Club  A more recent addition to the 914 community, much like the Pelican Parts BBS
Lotus Europa Mailing List    A Yahoo user group.  Different than a BBS, not as slick but with a very dedicated and generous membership that is always willing to help. 
Shoptalk Forums  VW and Type 4 Engine building.  Some serious expertise here, very helpful.

Useful Sites

europa workshop manual
Tire and Wheel upgrade Calculator    Great resource for selecting the right size tires, links to tirerack for product review and pricing.

James' Full on Synchro Rebuild      An excellent explanation of Porsche gearbox troubleshooting and rebuild work.

Porsche Gear Ratios    A very useful table for determining what's what in the box.

Vendors I have used and can recommend.

Pelican Parts  Competitively priced source in California for Porsche parts.  I buy from them when I can to help support their fantastic BBS.
Pierce Manifolds  Great source for Weber Carb parts and Expertise.  Weber parts lists and diagrams on their site.
California Import Parts  Good source in Canada for VW parts used in a 914, inexpensive, easy online ordering, don't expect service, that isn't their thing.  
Aircooled.net  John is really helpful and his prices are quite fair, specializing in VW.

Triad Performance   Dave is a very decent guy to deal with, and makes a very nice muffler for the 914.
