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 …

Introduction post

Post  UK952 on Mon Nov 01, 2010 6:59 am

Hi,
I have owned a 1990 Turbo for about 10 years and 100k miles - slowly modded up to around 350BHP. The engine is blowing lots of smoke and has a very scored number 3 cylinder and is now back down to around 320BHP
As I tend to do a lot of road miles and a few trackdays a year, the thought of a brand new crate V8 is very appealing - And I intend to keep this car for ever so happy to spend some further money on it.
I am running leda suspension, big blacks, recent CV's, plus it has the LSD box with cooler.
I was thinking LS2 but with some further research it seems the heads/breathing is better on the LS3, and as I intend to keep it a long time and for a lot of miles will probably stay stock.

Being in the UK it is RHD, so it will be interesting to see what additional issues this throws up, looking at the moroso sump pics I take it the mod is to clear the steering/cross member - I am hoping I can just reverse this and there will be no internal fouling.

We have a different brake clutch set up, our clutch master is on the other (our drivers) side from the brake booster. The brake booster and master is operated by a bar transferring the pedal movement to the other side, this may mean our brake master cylinder set up is the same as a LHD drive car - will find out!

The cross members are also quite different between a LHD and RHD, but I believe the engine mounts are the same so hoepfully the fixings and positions will be too.

No doubt there will be loads of questions to follow!

Can you post some pictures of the brake setup? I have been looking for some. The steering linkage is the big problem with headers on the LHD cars. You would have to get creative with the tube routing.

Will get some pics later, car is stored at a friends place at the moment. Fortunately he has a tig welder and a lift so I am hoping he will be able to suitably modify whichever headers I end up with, and assist with creating the exhaust.

Welcome!
Your car sounds like a great swap candidate, keep us posted!
No question that the LS3 (or LS7, or LS9 Smile ) is better than the LS2 and LS1, it just depends what your budget looks like and how much power you'd like.

Am I likely to have issues with the drive by wire throttle with the LS3 or should it be straight forward -anyone done one yet?

Others have done it. Skywalker did I think. Look up his build thread.

It's been done (not by me personally), but from what i hear it's straight forward. Just make sure you get a pedal! Drive by wire requires a special pedal.

Basically all you need is the pedal, the Throttle Control Module (TCM), and the cable between the TCM and pedal - of course you also need a harness that supports a DBW setup. It sounds intimidating, but like 944-LT1 says, "It's a snap!" Highly recommended configuration so you don't have to worry about throttle cable and all that.

All I needed, in addition to the pedal and computer of course, was a throttle pedal connector/pigtail ($16) which wasnt included in the engine harness. With that and the factory schematic....its a snap!

Heres the pinout for the throttle pedal connector and the X1 connector at the ECU. Basically, look at the circuit number i.e. 1162 is light blue at the connector....then connect that wire to pin 32 of the X1 connector at the ECU. Thats pretty much all there is to it....besides mouting the damn thing.

Throttle

Post  fliermike45 on Wed Nov 03, 2010 11:29 pm

My 2 cents worth:
I purchased an engine from a Vette, it had an electric throttle body (TB).
I purchased an electric pedal on Ebay. later I talked to SSP Wiring about modifying
my loom, they told me that I needed a TPM (which was expensive) so I decided to
go with a cable TB and SSP re-programmed the ECU for this amongst other options.
SSP supplied a cable TB and gave me a credit for the electric TB and pedal.

That was a concern to me when I first bought my engine but found out that the LS2 and LS3 engines (rather, their computers) did away with the external TAC modules. Its all integrated into the computers now. Cool

You can find TAC modules on Ebay for $100, or your local boneyard for less. Piece 'o cake!

I just highlight and copy the text I want to quote, paste it into the reply box and then highlight the text again and press the quote button.

I bet theres a faster/easier way but its just habit now. Laughing

lots of Q's

Post  UK952 on Sat Mar 12, 2011 6:03 pm

Getting closer to making a start, I have discovered the cross members look quite different on a RHD car which is making me a bit nervous, but the engine mounts were the same so these points at least should be the same.
Still thinking LS3 is the way to go, but given my location leaning towards a new motor rather than from a breakers yard, want it to be reliable,
Are all the sump options modified on one side to clear the steering shaft - obviously my steering is going to be on the other side so the mod will need to be mirrored (probably). Will this foul the oil pick up?

This looks usefull [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Will get some emails off to xschop and texasperformance in the next few days.

in addition to TPC conversion kit + C5 bellhousing

Do you use the GM factory compressor for AC?
GM alternator

Factory starter?

from looking around the forum aftermarket Power steering pump.

Oh one other thing - If I buy a vette LS3 motor will the intake, pulley set up, etc. be suitable? or will I have to make a load of changes?
