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 …

So, after a long hiatus. I finally got to continue to where I left off.

Post  aixgelo78 on Sun Nov 27, 2011 10:06 pm

So after the Sloan debacle and how that went down. That put me into a dead stop until I was able to source some of the parts missing/never returned.

Quick recap.
88 turbo S
2000 LS1(camaro)
interior was maroon, now mostly black

Every move I made, I was faced with things that hindered me, such as:
stolen harnesses, needed to buy a new one
steering shaft needed to be extended
the headers needed to be modified for steering shaft where it should have not been
needed to learn how to make brake lines
mounting the radiator
fuel pump didnt fit right(walbro)
radiator hose PITA
the VSS sensor kit needed to be modified and then relocated




This is another reason for the delay. A little of a surprise, she is 7mo now.

Congratulations, they will both change your life and they both get more expensive to maintain the older they get.
I don't know where he found the correct radiator hose. I used a splices by jagsthatrun.com between the factory hoses from the LS1 and the Porsche hose for the upper and lower radiator hoses.

Thank you for the warm welcome guys.

The car is fairly easy to work on, it's just doing it for the first time is the hard part. I took a couple of weeks off of work because I had the time and worked on the car and watched the baby(she got sick over thanksgiving).

To add a little bit to the collective.

I used a Griffin Radiator as suggested in the manual. For the passenger side, stock LS1 thermostat to radiator, I used an Advance Autoparts hose 71321. It had to be cut significantly because I only needed the center 6-7in out of the whole 18in.

For the driver's side, I used several pieces to make it do what I wanted. out of the waterpump, I used an Advance Autoparts 71994 then trimmed it to a 1.5" to .75" to 1.5" T from Jag's, then a silicone 1.5" to 1.5" 90 to a 1.5" to 3/8npt to 1.75" T from Jag's, then to an Advance Autoparts 72357. Do you follow or is it confusing?

Chris

The 3/8NPT T was used for the coolant temp sensor. I didn't like the idea of the adapter on the side of the head because I feel like it would have air pockets stuck in that area.

My sister lives in laurel, pretty close to the mall.(may's...ect)

I go to Maryland and Virginia 2-3 times a year to visit some family, but I don't think my wife would allow me to take the a family of four in the Porsche.

She is Alive!!!!!

not too much drama:
i forgot to tighten the fuel line to the rail, fixed that quickly and got my fire extinguisher out. didn't want anything to happen even before I get to drive it.

I kept on priming, took about 40 seconds worth of cranking before oil came out. I was checking for oil at the fuel filter. maybe a coincidence, but I put about 1/8th of a quart down the oil pressure sensor hole. After that it primed quickly

When I first started the engine, I loosely tightened the oil filter, with the oil pressure, it blew out about 2 quarts in 5 seconds. had a mess to clean up.

So far I only have about 2 minutes of run time total. Sounds like I have a miss, but I know I have an aggressive cam, so I still need to finish up a few things. 02 sensors are not even connected yet.

still have idle issues, but I think it still needs to "learn"

enough reading, heres the link:

Mine idled fairly rough without the MAF and IAT sensors hooked up. Today was the first day the O2, MAF and IAT sensors were hooked up and it ran so much more smooth. How are you going to route your intake? Congratulations, it feels good like the light at the end of the tunnel.

I have no clue on what I can do on the intake yet, but that's comforting that it "sounds" normal to you guys. I really do not want to use hood pins, but it looks like i might have to for the intake.

I am now motivated again about the car. but this part of the build is nickle and diming me. I am happy to join the club.

I did my intake off to the drivers side and it fits well, just finished today. I used a 4 to 3.5 inch 90 degree intake elbow, a 3.5 inch OD aluminum connector, a piece of the original GTO intake and a K&N filter. If you want to go that way I can get you more details.
If you think you have a miss feel the headers. The one that has a miss should be cold. If they are all hot, it is probably the sensors not being hooked up and running rich.

If you don't mind posting a picture at your earliest convenience, that would be cool. Although I really like the idea of routing it under the header panel.

As for the miss, thats a good tip! I just need to be careful not to burn myself.

Congrats! For my intake I went straight ahead with it, K&N air filter from an F body intake kit right underneath the header panel where the intercooler used to be.
