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 …

Very cool Matt might review it. I posted in support over on RL... But I would like to see a comparison with a stock engined car, perhaps a similarly setup street/track turbo. Where it'd get interesting is the LS conversion doesn't add weight or change the gearbox, two things Matt picked on with the RX-7.

The video with that RX7 is what got me started following The Smoking Tire!

I am surprised with how many guys are in SoCal that no one else was interested in providing a similarly modded turbo.

Anyhow i forgot to mention, the date for the feature is set for mid April so i figure any video will probably surface in May or June.

Well if he wants to come to the East coast I have 1 of each, provided I get the LS car finished soon
! I have twin 86 turbo cars, both red with black interiors. One has a 99 LS1 the other is an 84K all original car right down to the Fuchs wheels.
We refer to them as his and hers....

Finally had the opportunity to get another auto-x in. Had a great time, no issues at all with the car despite me beating on it pretty hard. I had an instructor the first few runs to get signed off for this region, his car is a n/a 944. He was loving the power with the LS  Laughing . Of all the cars i owned, i have no remorse bouncing off the rev limiter with the LS..  Twisted Evil

I finished about mid pack i think. I am giving up the most time at corner entry, still trying to get comfortable with the stopping power on tap. I routinely over brake then have to sorta coast into the faster turns. Still absolutely amazed how much grip the car has, between the 1:50-2:00 section was a blast. No issues putting the power down. AOR limited slip and 275 width Falken RT615k's  cheers . Just need to get some more seat time in.

And the other LS swapped 944 was here also! This one was built on an early 944 chassis, i think an '84. Engine is an LS2 that is basically all stock. He is a good driver, routinely in the top 10 overall.

Aww, good old Qualcomm stadium (or The Murph what I remember it as). This video makes me feel old, I did my first autox there in 1990 my sophomore year of HS with my modded '80 VW Scirocco. That was the first, and last, wrong wheel drive car I ever purchased. Wink

BTW, good driving! Car looks and sounds great on the track! Twisted Evil

After 13 years or so i am not longer a 944 owner Embarassed

The sale of the car went pretty well, i had three very interested parties from across the US in the span of a week. It was the first one that reached out to me though that ended up purchasing the car. I did get a little nervous as i didnt have anyone contact me about the car until about a week in!

While i will miss the car, i got my asking price which i thought was fair considering the time and $ that went into this car over the years.

The car will be heading back to the east coast, PA to be exact. The new owner intends to use it as a DE car, so i am sure it will be back to turning laps at Pocono Raceway.

It wasnt, ill leave it to the owner to introduce himself if he wants. I am not sure where he heard about the car as it was posted on Pelican, Rennlist, here and also was featured on BringATrailer. I did refer him to this forum though.

Congrats on the sale! Do still ping me and John when you're in town. His car is looking good and almost up and running. Mine is still romping around strong as an ox.

Cheers!

Here is the other project. I just wish engine stuff for these was as cheap as the LSx, ill probably need to do a rebuild on the engine sooner rather than later and was looking at upping the displacement to 3.4L. The piston and cylinder set is $5k  Shocked  Shocked  Shocked

Maybe i should look into another LS swap...  Twisted Evil

I would never swap a mid to late 80's carrera, they're too cool the way they are.
Plus they're worth a lot. An early 996 is perfect for a swap.
996's are coming down in price, find one with IMS bearing issues.
And the 996 has decades of suspension advancement that will much better handle
the power of an LS swap.

Problem is lots of people think the 996 looks pretty ugly...

I was really thinking about doing a 911 ls swap. I almost "won" a stripped out 1982 roller for $6,500 on ebay for the project... when I was relieved that I got outbidded in the final minutes I knew it wasn't the right project for me Embarassed 

Jon your car looks nice. If you have the money i say go for it! Has anyone seen a clean ls swapped carrera and what it goes for? I would be curious as to what it does to the value....

I was just kidding about engine swap, the only would i would consider would be a 3.6L from a 964 or 993 but that is big $! Obviously i have nothing against sticking a V8 into something but the flat-6 really is part of the heart and soul of the 911 so i think it kills the overall experience.

A LS1 swapped '86 911 sold on BringATrailer recently for about $42k, thats right in line with what a good condition '86 would normally go for.

That's a shocking amount of money for a swapped car.

Yours needs a whale tail! It's not a 911 without a whale tail...

From the pelican link, I'd argue that the car was almost fully refurbished (restored?) as part of the swap. That is a detail that I'm not sure everyone understands when they hear of car like this with a "swap". Its not just the engine swap, in a well built car it is all the other work that goes into the project with needed repairs, upgrades and cosmetics.

That is a lovely colour combo, wheels are appropriate too. What are the specs, any future mods?

948, color is Granite Green Metallic. Its a really nice color and looks grey most of the time unless in direct sunlight where you see the greenish hue to it. A nice change up over the typical black, red or silver. It is fairly high mileage, 165k miles on it currently. Its a good thing because i dont feel bad about putting miles on it. Engine was rebuilt, but due to some issues with the motronic it was running super lean. Leak down and compression were good but going through 1qt every 6-700 miles. So i bet the valve guides are toast from having run lean for so long. I am planning on doing a full split case rebuild, mostly because doing just the heads i am probably 1/3 of the way 'while your in there' already. I am leaning towards upping the displacement to 3.4L which is surprisingly not much more than just buying new 3.2L pistons and cylinders. I really dont trust the rebuild that was done by the shop the previous owner used, so this will give me some peace of mind. Ill build an LS1 all day but i am going to defer to a shop for this engine build, thankfully SoCal is the mecca for all things aircooled so plenty of good places to choose from. I am going to have the work done by the guy that builds some of the engines for the Singer 911's Smile.

As for the plans for the car, i mostly want to do sort of a restomod on it. Ive done a lot of work to refresh a bunch of things on the car that were worn out. The last major things to do other than the engine are to redo the entire suspension and to retrofit the a/c with some better components. I got the 'mod it to hell' phase out of me with the 944, so i plan to keep this one reasonable. May go up to 17" replica Fuch's for better tire selection but other than that i want to keep it mostly original looking. Ultimately i just want to make it into a nice weekend and canyon car. I do want to do maybe 1 or 2 track days a year with it and the same with autocross; just to get a feel for how the 911 drives at the limit. I wont make the mistake of building a track car for the street again.. Very Happy.
