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 …

cool discussions and thoughts.

I will have to post some video w sound of my car once Im done rebuilding the motor.
As for torque and turbo spool. Just ask speedy about torque when I took him for a ride in my car a couple years ago. At 2500 rpm it was already over 600 at the wheels.

My new setup with 3.8 vs 4.2 buick v6 will be setup to move the torque and power further up the rpm range with higher flowing heads and smaller turbo....

Weather is still crappy hear, itching to get working and driving again!

not to mention, since it is an even-fire v6 is may be possible to get it to sound like an alfa GTV Very Happy

Looking into doing a GM 3800 swap, as one of my fraternity brothers thinks he can machine the adapter plate and fab up exhaust for me.

Does this require a RWD configured 3800?

That's the million dollar question, We tried 5 intakes and more accessory setups till we found one that fits. Your asking a question that only myself and one other guy can answer. As I told you before, we'll install it for you, but I can't give out that info right now. So please don't ask..... Shocked

I thought this was a free speech forum not controlled by a small interest group... Isn't that why you guys all left the original forum? If you won't/can't answer it there might be someone that can. I apologize for arguing with you, but I can't justify 5-7k on labor alone for a swap I'd rather do myself as a learning project.

I think I found the answer anyway.

yes this is a free speech area, I was just letting you know that the information that you are asking for is not. I have spent a lot of time and money getting this right , and we aren't just going to give that info away at this moment. If you have figured all the fitment issues out and gotten all the perfect working alignment dimensions in such a short amount of time. All I can say is your good.............
There is a lot more to it than just having someone one here tell you what bell housing and intake to use. You've still got flywheel, clutch disc, pilot bearing, headers(no factory exhaust manifolds fit), intake clearances, Extreme custom oil pan!, motor mounts, and wiring(with computer programing).
If you want to compare this forum to the old one just because I won't give away my information, I would suggest you go over there and ask the same questions, I'm thinking you'll get a lot less answers from them. Remember RH said the V6 was not a good Idea to install in our cars. Maybe it's because it takes a lot of work to build all the above mentioned stuff.
I'm not arguing I just stating facts.

Not only free speech, but everyone here also has the freedom to exercise their Miranda rights, namely the right to remain silent Very Happy
If I were Eric, (TPC) I wouldn't want Renegade Hybrids to get ahold of my tech either. That's like being pissed at Coca Cola for not divulging their secret formula.

I'm not asking him to give up his information, but he is telling me not to ask. Quite frankly, I don't really care enough to get mad about it. They're his trade secrets, I can completely understand keeping them that way, its how he makes money. I want to do the swap for myself, maybe its just bad timing since he doesn't want to divulge info OTC yet. I'm going to see what I can gather together to do it myself, but I intend to rebuild the crossmember. So my project will be completely different. I assumed that it required the RWD configuration off an F-body 3800, which looks correct judging from Vorsche's pictures. The only thing I really don't know/can't figure out is how to machine the adapter plate and pilot bearing. But I found the diagram for the ls1 adapter plate, all I have to do is transfer the 944 side onto one that fits the stock 3800 F-body bellhousing (which is I'm fairly certain what Vorsche has on his).

Being new to this forum, I'm interested in this V6 conversion. I can't seem to find any of the pics referred to in earlier posts in this thread? Have they been removed or have I just not found them yet?

Thanks!

For those interested in a V6 944, you may be in luck. I'm considering selling my 87 944S with a Buick Grand National turbo engine installed.

I have a pic but no part# for a bellhousing that will work. It detaches from a 2.2L S-10 and mates to the 4l60E trans. I will be building adapter plates for them and there are numerous engines that will swap including the GM 3800.

If you guys run across one, snatch it up.... pic on right...the left BH fits all the I4, I5, I6 GM engines Very Happy

Same.

Can't wait for a kit; or at least some info. Defiantly not skilled enough to go in empty handed.

Eric[ Texas Concepts ] said a DIY would be avaliable in the next upcoming months.
