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 …

Planning on it, my wife is a potter and there is a nice size kiln taking up part of my garage. She has already given the go ahead to bake them Very Happy

Did the LS1 to LS6 valley pan swap tonight. Didn't realize until I started putting it back together that I had the pre 2001 steam vents, so they had to be modified to make it work. Now to add two catch cans and I should not have much oil burn.

Yeah, wish I'd known about this before the motor went into the car. It would've taken zero time to do the swap with the engine on the stand.

I'm not really looking forward to doing it now...

Used the wife's kiln to cure the ceramic header paint.

Nice headers. Are they modified S&P versions?

Not sure, they were done locally using jigs made years ago by Tom E. IIRC the renegade headers are based on the originals that Tom did.

A friend came over and we worked on the electrical today, added 4 relays and a power distribution box. We should be able to finish most of the wiring tomorrow.

Did more on the electrical yesterday, just need to finish under the dash at this point. Throttle cable is installed, had to trim it down to make it fit properly but it is working properly (WOT no problem). Brakes lines have been made and installed on DMC. Oiling system has been mocked up and the remaining hardware will be he Wed. Should be able to start the car this weekend!

I take it that it's not going to be a daily driver. At any rate getting rid of the factory DME relay is a must LOL. Nice work.

It's great you're representing the 948 crowd. What are you doing for brakes?
Also you should change the thread title to "Seriously Doing the Swap" Very Happy

I like the Turbo nose, but from every post I've seen it seems to restrict airflow. The reason I decided to keep the NA nose and chop out the plastic cross bar.

I don't run the Turbo nose, I have the GT racing fiberglass front end.

That even looks more restrictive. May have been OK for the ill-designed 4 banger, but the airflow has to increase. I'm still running the NA radiator. I dropped about 15-20 degrees when I chopped mine out....

Actually the system that I have set up works very well for cooling. The opening is approx 30% of the radiator area and is well boxed so that once air enters it must go through the radiator. The venting on the hood allows greater flow through the radiator as well by keeping pressure from building under the hood. I did quite a bit of reading on cooling systems when I was building my supercharged 968 engine (which a one point made 350 rwhp) and the setup that I have was taken from the Corky Bell book on supercharging. I'll soon know if it will work (the 951 radiator may be the limiting factor, not the air flow through it). The SC system that I had in the car produced a massive amount of heat and the system was working, not to mention that there was an intercooler sitting in front of the radiator as well. With the new set up, there will be an oil cooler in the intake area, but that should not impede airflow as much as my intercooler did.

Why are you getting rid of the supercharger if it worked so well? Because of the heat in the charger head itself or the engine temp heat? What's ironic is now that I have the 160 degree T-stat installed, I run 175 down the hiway and fans always come on around town (104 degree outside temps for the past few weeks). And when I had no T-stat I would run 160 degrees down the hiway and the fans would rarely kick on around town.

The charger head was overheating and killing internal bearings. It was a new charger and I was the first one racing it. After killing the SC for the second time the company said it would no longer warranty the product for racing. I immediately sold the two 968 engines sitting in my garage to fund the LS build.

Took care of the coil pack issue this weekend as well. I'll be placing coil pack number 5 and 7 on top of 1 and 3. I'm using longer bolts and nylon spacers to keep the packs from touching (ordered from McMaster this morning). Bought some coil wire and made two longer spark plug wires, so I think I'm good to go.

Speaking of wallets, are you going to make the short shifter? Mine is shot and I need to order something asap!

Yes I already ordered the material for all new construction shifters so I won't need yours on exchange. I've even updated the design to use HMA spacers. Will be a couple more weeks as I am getting close to finishing all the new CNC'd Wilwood-Cayenne kits....

Finished installing all the fuel lines, throttle cable, and coil packs. I placed coil pack 5 and 7 on top of 1 and 3, using a nylon spacer. Coils sit about a cm apart and are held in place well. I also got my new shift linkage from xschop and installed it (looks great and is much better built that what I've used in the past). Pics below.

What throttle cable are you using? Looks a lot shorter than mine...
