Re: [T3] Squares Next motor

The 2.0 914 heads were only used on the 914 and the 912E, and were apparently
redesigned by Porsche.  They're quite different from the 2.0 Bus heads, with a
different spark plug location, and a different chamber shape.  There were still
produced by VW, but never used by VW.

They made quite a few more than just two versions of many parts.  There were
several cases and at least four different heads, and that was jus the 914.  The
912E had still more parts unique to it (including a gearbox ONLY used on that
car, of which only 1400 examples were made).
