Always exciting conjuring up a new project at EV West. This straight little Porsche 914 is getting a subframe and a Tesla Model 3 motor. It will be a major update, since this car came to us already converted to electric! Twelve lead-acid car batteries was a lot of weight to drag around before lithium chemistries became widely available. This will be fun.

Can EV heater box relocated under the dash of a ‘79 VW Bay-window Adventurewagen Bus. Sideways was the best result. Running HV any long distance from the contactor box requires extra TLC. Now it blasts!

Great progress. Both rear Tesla battery boxes packed, cabled, wired, sealed and installed. Front of boxes rest on the redesigned crossbeam, and the back of each box hangs from the rear trunk floor. Amphenol high voltage connectors will route to the other boxes and controller, and the IP rated barrel connector is used for BMS monitoring.

Dilithium BMS configured inside the access panel for the VW Bus Tesla Six-Pack battery box. The EV West BMS PCB connector boards make wiring the cell tap and thermistor leads much easier, and way more dependable. Tip of the hat to @j5_jonny5 for the great design work.

This is the full pack of seven Tesla Model S modules, boxes stuffed, cabled up, and prewired for BMS connections. The two boxes on the floor will straddle the HyPer9 motor amidships. At 5.3kWh per module, this 37kW pack will deliver at least 130 miles range.

Thus ends another Bonneville Speed Week for our crew. Two attempts at an electric streamliner shakedown run produced two shredded drive belts. This Tesla motor doesn’t care what load you give it. It will spin no matter what. Although great intel for the next attempt, and now back to the lab.

Custom shelf installation for the Antigravity 12V Restart lithium battery. There is plenty of space for EV components in the former fuel bay, and decent elbow room to access them. The weakest link in an EV always seems to be the 12V battery. Not in this build!

What's up Marc. Been a long time Want to electrify my 1964 W100 power wagon
Why is Tesla buying back Roadsters?
This might be of interest...
I assume this group is California-heavy, but Portland has a lot of EV lovers, too, and I'm one of them. I've happily driven a 2014 500e since I leased it, new, in July of 2014, and now I have an opportunity to purchase a nicely done EV 914 (one of my favorite automobiles, in terms of looks, for as long as I can remember). Do you know of anyone in Portland who might be qualified to help me, if I were to need any kind of service to the batteries, motor, or the rest of the drive train?
