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 …

New guy w/ noob questions

Post  Schuepbach on Fri Apr 01, 2011 9:49 pm

So I've been attempting to do this swap for the past year or so. Having been stalled twice by moving to different towns, a subaru which didn't like its pistons, and the never ending search of parts, it seems I can start seeing light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm nearly done rebuilding my ls motor which means the fun part of installing it is coming up. I'm currently using the RH kit as a guy had it locally for a good price. Looking over their instructions they recommend installing the engine from the bottom up. It would be alot easier for me to go from the top in but wanted to know if there were con's to doing it this way.

Also I was looking at my intake manifold and noticed that the fuel rails have the fuel input on the drivers side, but obviously the fuel lines are on the passenger side. Is there an easy work around for this(turn the rails around) or just extend the fuel pressurized line across the engine bay?

Hopefully I'll have this thing running sooner than later, my garage is currently a massive storage unit down here in Houston.

I always go from the top myself. I install it without the headers or waterpump installed. If you dont want to take the waterpump off, its a tough way to install it. If its already off, its no problem. The brake master cylinder and steering linkage should be removed as well.

Absolutely, just flip it.

I need to replace the ps rack anyway, so it will come off. Should I remove the whole steering shaft or just disconnect it from the rack so i can move it around? The MC and vacuum booster are already off, i was thinking of putting the mc back on before I dropped the motor in, but I'll put it in afterwards.

The steering shaft will have to pass through the header primaries 3 and 5 or 5 and 7 so it has to be removed regardless. So mark it (if you want to) and remove it completely for now. As for the MC, you got the right idea. Sounds like you have a good grasp on the conversion!

Thanks again, I have a good idea of how to do the swap, just want to the get the details down before i'm 90% in and realize I have to take the motor back out Laughing

Did you guys generally upgrade the fuel pump as well or is the oem one fine?

Im still on my stock pump. Used it for the stock engine, the LT1 engine and now the LS3. I will eventually have to replace it and when I do, it will probably be the bosch 044. But, the stock works just fine.
