HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

lt1 engine this weekend

Post  shwinny on Thu Oct 28, 2010 7:02 am

I have finally found a good lt1 enginge out of a 1994 comaro with 118k miles with everything for 600$.

I am kind of confused out the wiring of the engine to the car. I am not worried about emmisions because the car is an antique now and will not go through emissions. I am not very good at wiring but i can figure out some but not sure on how to apply it to the 944. I know you guys have some experience so maybe a little insight on how what needs to be done to make it plug into or splice it in to the 944.

I will be bringing the engine to a local engine builder to have a day spa to freshen it up a little. so if i start reading and understanding now about the wiring maybe i wont be so worried about it.

I have a modded harness setting on the shelf waiting to be shipped!
Plus I have every piece that you need for the swap.

I thought harnesses were overpriced, until I started doing my own. There is a lot of time/labor invested in doing it right. Doesn't help that I have never done one before but I saw one builder quote he had about 16 man hours into a basic harness without the relay/fuse boxes.

I now am the proud owner of a 1994 camaro lt1 engine with the harness and ecu. Where are the numbers on these lt1 so i can look it up. It has aluminum heads and never been taken apart or modded. It has the harness still pluged into all the sensors and injectors. I scored it for 650$. Now i just need to get this pescky 2.5L out and the lt1 to the engine builder for a freshen up.

Should i keep the wire harness from the 944 or can that go with the head. I am not concerned with emissions becouse it will be to old to do emissions. So how will that be with the wireing. I really just want the essentials to have a well running lt1.

Looks like you and I are going to be doing the same swap. I'm not going to be running emissions either. I don't think you have to keep the 944 harness but I do think it makes it easier. I'd hold onto it for right now, you can sell it later if you don't need it.

Just hang on to it for a bit. When the car is running, then get rid of it. Off the top of my head, you will only need to keep the boot at the firewall and maybe the starter harness.

Congrats!

Corvette forums, ebay (use as search string: "ls1 bellhousing" "corvette bellhousing"), and other type forums. Gm part number 12554980

You should be able to find a nice used one for around 150 but they are getting scarce.

current score. I just scored a full throw out bearing assembly with the resivior and ram for 100$ from a c5 corvette and a 12551118 c5 bellhousing for 50$ locally. I am in the process of getting the flywheel/pp/and clutch. I am kind of confused on what flywheel to get. I want to get a good one but now blow my pocket away. I know i need a 1in 23 spline clutch which i found on summit racing. What about the Pressure plate and flywheel. I really dont want to spend 400$ for a flywheel and 200$ for a Pressure plate. Any suggestions

i got my flywheel from jegs and was about 100 bucks with shiping make sure and order 1 for 86 or newer with your lt1as they have a smaller bolt circle on crankshaft flange than the earlier sbc.look for 11 inch 168 tooth w/1piece seal.on your pressure plate i got one at local parts store with a clutch disk that i didnt use.as they come in kits and are not that bad of price in kit form.make sure you use 10.5 in pressure plate and clutch disk .they will bolt to 11 inch flywheel as most of the ones like the one i metioned that jegs has with dual bolt pattern for 10.5 or 11 inch pressure plate.just make sure you use 10.5 inch pressure plate because 11 inch pressure plate wont clear c5 bellhousing on sbc aplication.

Only draw back I can see is that its gonna require an aftermarket starter = $.

if used with 168 tooth 12 inch flywheel a factory gm starter will work just as long as one is used for a application that came with a manual trans.i got my starter from autozone and orderd for 75 vette with manual trans.gm starters for sbc have two different sized nose cones on them .the ones for automatic are larger and wont fit into the bellhousing.ones for manual trans apps are smaller.make sure and use 10.5 inch pressure plate and clutch disc or you will break your bellhousing like i did.i got my flywheel from jegs which was the cheaper one listed and it works just fine.pressure plate i got was brand new ac delco unit which works just fine also.lt1 and early sbc both have alot of simularitys except the crankshaft bolt patern for flwheel which is smaller bolt pattern.so make sure and get theflywheel for 86 and later.12 inch 168 tooth for 1 piece rear seal.it should have dual bolt pattern for 2 different pressure plates.10.5 and 11 inch.just make sure you use 10.5 inch clutch disk and pressure plate.

how do those parts sound. I will be getting those in the next week. I just want to verify they will work for my setup. I put in the gm part# for the flywheel and 2 came up. One for 302$ and another for 75$ thats a huge diffrence in price. I plan on going with the 10.5 clutch and pressure plate. i think those part # are for 10.5 in PP and clutch.
