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 …

Why are you against dropping 1/2"?


Lowering the engine will not solve the issue, it will still hit the valve cover. This is a DMC that I sourced from Tom E and he suggested moving the location. I believe that it only needs to be moved over 1/2" to fit and Tom did not think that would be an issue with his setup.

That's why I went thru the trouble of designing my own Bracket for the Tilton/Wilwood Dual MC mount. You will have pushrod problems if you dont move the pushrod over at the pedal AND put a 9-10 degree angle on it.

Who is this Tom person I keep seeing in this thread? Are we asssumed to know who this person is? Laughing

I guess we need to see pictures of the MC, the pushrod and the pedal to make any further comments. But regardless, putting such a tremendous load on a pushrod of stock size at an angle (looks like 5-6°) will bend the rod....and you can guess what that may cause after awhile of cycling.

Ill wait for pictures of your equipment.

I thought that everyone in the hybrid world new Egan Shocked

Thinking about it, I am opposed to dropping the cross member. Why because what you are really doing is raising the nose of the car. This will result in my splitter being raised off the ground even more and the rear will need to be raised to keep the same rake.

Actually you are only changing bump-steer a little when you drop the X-member.

What does the pivot mechanism look like inside? If it has a heim joint, turn them at a 90 degree angle towards the driver's side and add washers on the bottom 2 base bolts till you get a 10 degree angle. If those are wilwoods you can get remote reservoir lines/reservoirs.

Yes, it is a heim joint. We are currently moving the whole thing up, which puts the push rod straighter. I will also angle the bottom of the mount if necessary to get a straight push.

These are AP units, not Wilwood.

Where did you find AP's? I was looking for some because they had a MC with horizontal mounting flanges for the clutch MC.

I got the whole DMC from Tom, so I did not source them, sorry.

We did some cutting and welding and the DMC is setup and working. See below.

Two more packages arrived today, mostly braided hose and fitting for the remote oil filter/cooler and fuel system. Other than the Canton adapter, I believe everything is here. Unfortunately, I will not get much done on the car this weekend as I'll be at Barber Motorsports instructing for our local PCA DE (yea, I'll have fun). Wish I could solve the Canton adapter issue, I fear that will be my downfall in making the early July race Sad

The Driver's tow hook can be modded easily with a drill bit Very Happy
The oil filter fits right in the flow path if you remove the driver's fog light...FYI

I had not considered that area, do you have it covered? I ask because on the track that area gets pelted with track boogers and debris! Do you have any photos of how you ran the lines?

I removed that long ago, too much weight Shocked Also a bit to low for my liking, but I was looking in that general area. I do not have lights or anything in the area were the drivers side headlight was. I was thinking of mounting it to the frame rail, that will also make running the lines to the cooler fairly easy.

I got a external filter adapter with a 3rd port that I will be using for the Accusump line. I need to keep that as close to the engine in port as feasible.

I have pics in my build thread! You can easily reinstall the wheel liner! And there is tons of clearance on my lines.

To be honest, I don't feel comfortable running the lines through the wheel well area as you have done. With 275's up front on early offset a-arms my tires can hit the wheel well at full lock. Plus, I will not be installing a wheel liner. I think the area where the drivers side headlight normally sits is the ticket, since that area is empty and is close to where the oil cooler will be placed.

Didn't get as much done as I had hoped this weekend with family in town. I did get time to run the abs wiring and get the clutch set up. The later looked promising till I realized that the master cylinder was leaking into the car Sad I then drained the system and pulled the master. Opened it up and found that the rear seal was bad, there was a nice chunk that had broken off. Will call Wilwood tomorrow and get a replacement.

I'm going to place my drives side coil pack on the frame rail, what plugs work best from that location (guessing that I'll need at least 12")?

I made a L-bracket for one end and connected the other end to my dual MC mount. I used MDS spark plug wires and they worked fine. You could probably make 2 L-brackets and it would work the same. If you need longer wires the truck wires are longer.

The oil pan adapter finally arrived and decided to do a bit of porting for better oil flow.

Clutch is up an working so transmission can go back in Cool

Painted the headers tonight with a diy ceramic coating. It turned out great, hope is holds up and helps.

If you can find someway of baking those headers, the coating should last longer. The can probably mentions something to that extent.
