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 …

Hello all, I am thinking of using my 930 transaxle and mount a turbo honda engine on the tail of the car. I wonder if there is enough room back there? I know there are guys getting 800 or so horsepower without much torque with the honda engines and I feel that if mounted on the rear, we could eliminate the weight of the heavy torque tube etc. Anyone ever heard of this? Any pics out there?

Anyway, I love the board!!

Also, anyone ever try using a procharger one the LSx conversions. I know there is a guy that was using the magnacharger and opted away from the procharger. Just wondering if it was because of fit or etc. I dont mind cutting holes in the fiberglass hood. hehe

Thanks again and great board.

There is room back there. I always thought it would be cool to stick the LS4 Grand prix Drivetrain back there. You'll have to build a firewall behind your seat. Wouldn't be too difficult.

Pretty sure nobody has done that, but don't let that stop you. It would definitely transform the neutral handling of these cars in a very bad way. The torque tube really only weighs 60lbs or so.

No idea why he used a magnacharger vs. a procharger, other than the typical roots vs. centrifugal supercharger dilemma (bottom end vs. top end power).

You would want to put bigger brakes on the rear cause you'll have a 944 that handles like an improved 911.
I would live to see a mid engine 944. It would be an off-the-line jewel.

The only way that I can see being able to make a shift mechanism is to mount the transmission as it was in the 911 with the bell housing toward the rear of the car and the motor at the very rear. I would imagine that it would hook better but we would also not have that understeer that we are always fighting with. I just dont think that I could make a shift mechanism if I were to make it mid-engined.

I have also seen some 4.3 aluminum bowtie blocks over the years too. With the fan and water pump, Im not sure how short the overall length from bellhousing to fan would be. Could we get away with running a really good radiator up in the front and a really good electric fan to help keep things cool? That with the fuel cell near the crossmember to balance things a bit, the car would certainly be loose but maybe a really stiff swaybar in the front etc etc and some other magic to make it handle. I only wonder because some of those 997 cup cars are soooooooo darn quick with their rear engines.

Thanks for the input and keep 'em coming!!
