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's age vs. refusal to accept and understand new technologies. That's all it really comes down to.

    I still want the phone number to these places selling 5.3L's for $100.... i searched car-part.com and the cheapest i found across Canada was $600


    Hey man! I thought you disappeared! When I first decided to do the swap; I realized how overpriced every engine was in Canada. I was going to use a truck engine; then I found a complete low KM LT1 from a Camaro with all the wiring, accesories, msd distributor, msd ignition and hypertech power programer for 1000$ on KIJIJI.ca. I would just keep your eye out for something on there. The wiring really isn't a big deal, I was able to do it in one weekend. Just take your time and triple check everything you do. My car should be ready in the beginning of the summer. If I get it so it's drivable, I can stop by since your only 20mins from me. I can't wait to drive it!

    Hey man,

    Nope havent dissapeared... just got married and bought a house over the winter.... Trying to get back on track with this project.

    I'm ALWAYS on Kijiji looking but the BEST deal i found was an LS1 with LS6 intake for $1500.

    I definitely want to see your car once its done.

    You found an LS1 with an LS6 intake for 1500 and you did NOT jump on it?

    I just check Kijiji and Bargain finder, usedEdmonton.ca from time to time. I don't really need another engine at this time either although there have been some decent deals in the last 6 months. I still have a BBC block sitting on the shelf I would like to put together for my boats so I could end up with a spare (the weakest engine) however can't justify just yet. That was a good deal.. $300 and he started filling my truck with other stuff he wanted to get rid of. I''m $400 up on that deal and still have the block, 1 set of heads and some other parts! Doesn't cost me anything to look... However I have projects to finish!

    The SBC I put in my 944 was $250 and was fresh! Guy did a trip to Kamloops and back, cracked an exhaust seat, got ticked off and put in a new 383 and 700R4 into his '68 camaro. I sold the tall valve covers and Edelbrock intake for $180.

    I'm seriously concidering going carb to keep cost/wiring down.

    I know a cowl/scoop would have to be added to the hood.

    Let's see whats out there.

    Thanks
    hod rod magazine did a test here a while back of a comparison between fuel injected and carbed ls1 on a engine dyno a if i remember right the carb motor made some serious power like 530 hp it was in febuary 2005 issue of hot rod it lists the part numbers and whats needed for the swap ive thought about trying it out myself .by the way i have a carbed sbc making at least 500 hp in my 86 and i drive it all the time gas milage not bad on the highway but around town it sucks it down.i just got my speedo working again so ill check my milage and post.im using a 6in harwood scoop from jegs .i love my carb its simple and haslle free and makes gobs of power with my big roller cam.and i have nos.i used it once and went sidways for 100 feet before i shut it down inches from a large ditch

    there is just no way to make more power with carbs, over injection, atomization, control etc is just SO much better. of course if you let the average joe yank that is very good at carbs, but crap at efi, map them both.. then.. well. yeah.

    where did i make any comparison between the two in my statement and not the average joe knows how to tune a carb or a fuel injected setup .i didnt plan on getting into a debate over the two. any average joe knows fuel injections efficency is far supierior to a carb .but the carbs economical factor and simplicity can make it easier for the average joe to install in a project.and in the hands of a proper carb tuner such as my self can make some serious power that is affordable.fuel injection is starting to get more economicaly affordable for the average joe but the carb is still cheaper and can make alot of power in the right hands.i have a supercharged 2011 camaro with fuel injection and its incredible.insane scary fast.but so is my nos assited carbed 944 .all i was doing was answering the original post carbed ls1 has anyone done it.as for a carbed motor making more power than fuel injection its been done and proven on a dyno.go check out some alcohol sprint car motors with carbs.its an argument that your debating with out any facts .fuel injections fuel saving benifits are far superior to a carb but comparing power output is open to debate .on another post of course as you are veering off the original post then.. well...yeah

    if you go into my gallery or look at my profile pic you can see my hood scoop.they have different heights you can get and got mine from jegs .i use the 6in with elderbrock intake and elderbrock carb and pro flo elderbrock air cleaner and have enough room to shut hood and provide adequete air flo.the carb ls setup will probaly be about the same height as a sbc like im using.im getting mine redi to paint right now .i used a stock hood and rivited fiberglass scoop to the hood.my hood is hinged and use hood pins on front.i am bonding the hood scoop with body panel glue and rivets to give it a pernament bond with out cracking.the glue is a two part epoxy called fusion and makes a pernament bond.then i am going to smooth it on top with body filler.the scoop in my opinion looks pretty good on the car and still gives you a fairly good field of vision out the windshield and the price is right.i already had a stock hood or i would have purchased a flat fiberglass hood and added the scoop.another plus to the hood scoop it adds a place for underhood air temprature reduction.as its hard to direct air flow from underneath the car due to the low ground clearance and areodynamics.a problem with a lot of low to the ground sports cars.

    Ls1 carb

    Post  luginbuhlj on Thu Dec 08, 2011 11:20 am

    The carb kit makes 80 more hp than stock ls1 set up.. its been proven and the cost to do it has fallen considerably in the last year. I just got an ls1 for $400 w/o the harness or ecu so its in my best interest to go with a carb set up. the extra 1k bucks I saved Ill have one badass unique motor in my 944. Ill be uploading pictures in following weeks Cool

    Something to think about though... the 1000 you think you're saving is going to have to be put into paint and body work if you go with a carb.
