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 …

It would look like I will have a clearance issue for my oil filter. I will pick one up and see but by what a see I think it will be very tight.

Spark plug wire is an issue. I think the filter will be ok though. It's very small diameter.

I had contact between a spark plug wire and header too. It burned through and caused a misfire after a couple days on track. Solution was wires that have a bend-able head so you can shape it with a curvature to clear the header, been all good since.

so last few ods and sods for the motor ordered. Once they arrive then off to the dyno and run it in. I look forward to see how much HP it will make.

So people, what have you all done to break in these ls units. What oil has been used. As these run synthetic, not a good choice for break in. I have seen a few go boom because they did not use a break in oil. Any thoughts or in site would be appreciated. My last parts have arrived and its getting close to fire up. Thank you in advance.

I use Motul break in oil on all my engine builds. I've never had an issue with it. If its a street car, I run for about 1000 miles on the break in oil then change to synthetic.
If its a race car, then usually one good weekend at the track, the full synthetic.

My engine builder said any dinosaur oil with a high zinc content will work for break-in. I used a Valvoline oil for a track day where I focused on being full throttle or off throttle, no cruising, to seat the rings. Then I switched to synthetic and my engine seems strong and happy.

i use joe gibbs break in oil and follow that up with joe gibbs hot rod oil and never have a problem with flat tappet cam engines. however just remember, all ls car engines were factory filled with mobil 1 synthetic, they never saw a drop of conventional oil, all break in is done with synthetic. the "dont break in on synthetic" is as much of a myth as not being able to change back to conventional after running synthetic.

that being said, id still break it in with joe gibbs. just remember that with break in oils they are designed for the first run in and a few heat cycles. ive used it for run in and a few light dyno pulls to seat the rings, then change it as it starts to lose its viscosity quite quickly. id your not going to the dyno, do the initial run it, maybe put 10 miles on the car (providing you dont do a bunch of heat cycles between initial run in and the first drive) then change it for hot rod oil. id run that for 500-750 miles and then change it out for synthetic

Every engine from GM and all other car makers, do a run in procedure at the factory with a special break in oil before the engine ever goes in the car. After that, it is filled with their specific synthetic oil.

As far as your break in procedures go, as long as they work for you, then its good. For me, that's a waste of time and oil. I have always run my engine break in just like I will run the engine all the rest of the time. I'll give it one good heat cycle at moderate rpm, then let it loose with all its got.
Having owned a performance engine machine shop, I did a lot of dyno testing and found this method works the best.

And by no means am I trying to start an argument or debate. I am just saying what I have learned in all my years. Everyone has their own way of doing things.

Thank you all for your input. I think break in oil run it up, then a change to synthetic. Thanks again all.

Been a while, update time, New 19 " wheels in route also My matching front Ground control struts with 440 lb springs and camber plates. Waiting on word for my rad. Waiting on stock. Next is to order my 930 to vette stubs for the trans side. Rob, once its on wheels i hope you will still do the axles. I hope to be officially firing this thing up in 30 days. I have just been gathering parts while i delt with my wife's cancer.
Besides a few new sensors, and some odds and sods i have purchased the rest. The plan mechanically is finally coming together. The body that will come once the car is on its own wheels again. Let the fun begin.
