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 …

Huge score today on a set of heads!

Post  docwyte on Fri Oct 29, 2010 10:13 pm

Picked up a set of CNC ported 243 heads today locally for stupid cheap dough! They're built by Wegner's Motorsport, cost a cool $2500 new. Shocked

They need a little clean up work, but a local head rebuilder quoted me $200 for a full clean/valve job on em. This shop builds motors for Bonneville, so hopefully they know what they're doing.

Guy I got these heads from was making 420rwhp with em, I'd like a 30 rwhp gain...

I'll have my 241 heads up for sale as soon as I swap these on if anyone is interested...

how much does a port and polish usually cost. My 243 heads I picked up had been rebuilt w/ dual springs installed and stock porting for 450.00

We have a set of 243's professionally ported and built by Frankenstein Racing Heads for sale. They just came off of a built LS motor that the owner of FRH owns and are being replaced by bigger and better Trick Flows that have been reworked. The heads have sodium filled stems and the proper springs with retainers for some serious horse power. We are asking $850 plus shipping if anyone is interested. That's nearly the cost of the port job alone............... Shocked

Dropped the heads off at the machine shop this morning. They're going to do a valve job and deck em for me.

All in all I'll have these like new for less than 1/3 of the cost!

Eric, do I have to remove the hydroboost MC to get the drivers side head off?

Here is a set from Sacramento (california) craigslist for $500. Looks like you would still have to do the machine work though.

Yes, You might get away with just removing the master cylinder.

From the backing plate? Or totally disconnecting all the brake lines and PS lines?

No, you should not need to brake the lines loose. You just need to remove the two nuts that hold the master to the hydro boost unit. Pull the master towards the front of the car about an 1 1/2" to 2" and you should be able to lay it to the side just enough to get the valve cover loose and out. Then the rockers should be easy to get off. The heads have bolts, not studs, so once all the bolts are out you should only need to lift the head about an 1" and you can slide it forward and out. Make sure you drain the block thoroughly so no water gets into the motor.
Good luck and wear gloves you'll thank me after you almost bust a few knuckles Laughing Laughing Laughing

Are the head bolts one time use only stretch bolts?

So I'm going to need new valve cover gaskets, head gaskets and what else?

Bolt will need to be replaced, valve cover gasket should be able to be reused. New head gaskets of course.

I would replace the head bolts with ARP ones, they dont stretch when torqued like the stock ones, and you can reuse them if you have any engine problems later.
