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 …

The quality of these panels definitely show. Pictures do not do them justice! Fortunately Mike likes the cold, so you'll see much progress on this before the spring!

Very Happy
Mike, those will do some Mickey Thomsons proud. Custom width wheels or just spaced out?

here is the interim solution until I learn enough about tuning this engine

Mike,

Any update on your intake solution?

Dan

This is a few 4 inch to 3.5 inch silicone adapters, and the original 3.5 inch MAF fits nicely to the SLP Blackwing air cleaner. The engine runs well with this setup, but there is always room for improvement!

Currently just spaced, 8.5 x 18 inch front rims, and 8 x 10 out back. I have one inch spacers for the fronts and two inchers for the rears. Once the body work and paint are done I may think about some custom wheels like Skywalker. After the wallet recovers from Xmas! Shocked

No progress on the intake, will get back to that when the weather is warmer and the body panels are done. I have a few minor changes to the exhaust that I want to get sorted before playing with the intake again.

I am enjoying the change from working on the brakes to the body panels. Seeing a big visual change is a great motivator!

zeusrotty,
Those are my wide body parts, this is the first set that I have let leave the shop. This is one of two sets in existence . You won't see these any where but here, and here! Cool

Mike is slightly distracted, with that one task we all dread: Home maintenance! He should be back with updates shortly!

I have been away due to work travel and dreaded issues with the house as Skywalker said. Here's some pics of the front at the end of the year. Pics of the rear from today, and a few from the front today with wider spacers. Still too cold for me to bond these on, and I will post the backside of the rear flares to show trim detail next time I take them off. Not a whole lot of trimming to do, thanks Admin!

Ok, here's some pics of the rear flare, comparing stock, rear flare with no spacer, 2 inch spacer, I will add more detail of the install, including what I cut off the fenders. This is not a difficult install, I will have shots of a 4 inch spacer in a few weeks when they come in. Ultimately, I will have custom rims made, so I will have no spacers (spacers are NOT a problem if properly engineered!) My rear tires are currently 265s on 18 x 10 inch rims. I am planning on 335 Toyo R888s 18 inch x 12 rims for the rears, 265 or 275 on 9 inch for the front. Tires and rims in the pics are new, and will go up for sale soon. Smile

Those 265s used to look pretty wide!

Those fender flares really look good. It will be awesome with the fat tires back there. What exhaust tip is that?

The exhaust tip is a magnaflow 5 inch oval Stainless Steel with baffles, pricey at 125 or so, but I like it!

That is the one I have been looking at but haven't been able to find a picture of it installed. I will order it now.

Fronts with 2 inch spacer

Post by 87-944S on Sun Jan 29, 2012 9:58 am

Here is one more pic of the rear flare, and few pics of the front tires spaced out two inches. They now fill the fenders perfectly.

Is the stock N/A front spoiler wide enough to meet the fenders?

Wide enough yes, but a small extention is needed, take a look at one of the front fender pics and you can see what I mean.

Not your Daddy's spacers!

Post by 87-944S on Wed Feb 15, 2012 7:06 pm

These arrived today, 4 inch spacers for the rear.

These will allow me to get a good idea of how everything will look and fit. These are hub and wheel centric, made in the USA. Very Happy

I got them from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] they will make any size up to 5 inches wide for Porsche.

Custom Rims

Post by 87-944S on Wed Feb 22, 2012 8:15 pm

Ok, so, here is what I am planning on for custom rims that will fill out those sweet flares!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Toyo R888s in 335 30 18 on 12 inch rims for the rear, 265 35 18 on 9 inch rims for the front. They can also do custom engraving for the center caps. Skywalker suggested the Hybrids crest, going to see if they can do that. Otherwise a 948 script will work! I haven't decided on a spoke color, open to suggestions. Very Happy

Oh mama...those are super awesome! Center caps with "944-LT1" would look good on your car. Polished spokes an option?

Yep, polished is the default, brushed satin, colors, chrome, etc. Leaning towards brushed satin for the spoke surfaces.

Rear tires!

Post by 87-944S on Sun Feb 26, 2012 8:09 pm

My Toyo R888s in 335X30X18 for the rear came in!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here they are compared to the 235s on my SUV. Shocked

Can't wait to see how they look with the flares!

I think I saw USDA Prime stamped on the inner lip! Laughing The fronts will be 255s,I know these are way overkill, but what the heck. Rob, I think I may need a set of those cool chromoly axles! Cool
