The Renegade Hybrids 914 Chevy V8 conversions have been around for 25+ years and hundreds of cars have been successfully converted. More recently the 914 LS series V8 kit was born using the late model, all aluminum, GM engines and even more 914’s have made it to Super-Car status. Then, in response for an even lighter and more economical engine alternative, Renegade went back to a flat four designed engine with a very modern twist, and developed the EJ series Subaru conversion kit! To the few that doubted the performance of the V8 in this fantastic little mid-engine platform, our response is clear! “If you can’t beat 'em, join 'em!”
With donor engines choices from 120HP to a tune-able 450HP, impressive reliability and fuel economy, low center of gravity, and a HUGE aftermarket support industry, the ‘Subie’ flat four EJ series engines, have found a new home with a distant cousin, the 914!
