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 …

Drove it home tonight, very happy!

The clutch/shifter vibration at 2900-3000 rpm is completely gone.

The Audi diesel 5th gear gives me 2500 rpm at 70mph, vs the oem turbo 5th that was giving me about 3000 at 70mph.

From the pic it looks like the gear ratio is about 38:26 = 0.68 as expected, however I thought it would lower my revs more, like to 2250 or so. Oh well!

xchop's short shifter shifts so short I sometimes think I'm not in gear yet! Very solid shifting feel overall. Steering seems much more solid with the new ball joint ends. New shocks and struts feel great.

Did have a weird clunk from the right front wheel/strut area when I turned left into my driveway, I'll check to see if something is loose tomorrow.

I had this. Turned out to be the front sway bar.

thanks guys! I really love the heavy steel flywheel I went with, maybe not the best for the track but it's perfect around town. Gotta say, I'm really noticing the non-boosted brakes. Pretty sure that'll be my next project...

Clunk

Post  fliermike45 on Thu Jun 14, 2012 6:40 am

What are your lower front suspension arm ball joints like? Before I replaced mine I had a clunk because one was badly worn.

Go hydroboost you will not regret it.

Thanks Mike, I have new ball joints. [edit: Actually, they're not new]

The strut mount nut may not be tight enough.

Thanks Anthro, I pulled a lot of stuff apart on the front end, I'll go through it again.

Looks like it was right front ball joint. Left side wasn't making noise, but when I pulled it apart the plastic bushing inside was in pieces, so I replaced it as well.

Wow, what a difference. No clunks, no noise, no nothing when going over bumps, etc.
