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 …

Engine options

Post  Admin on Sun Aug 09, 2009 9:09 pm

What other engine would be worth while putting in place of the stock motor? Like a turbo or super charged V6. I have done a lot of research on the LS1 and everyone seems to think it is to long for the car. What do you think?

VQ35. I was getting close to putting one in before I found the 5.3l deal.

That guy does really nice work, I just wonder what the cost would be and the benefits would be. Nissan's are expensive to work on. My wife drives one!

The VQ35 is a s***ty motor. Friend of mine has had to do 2 timing chain tensioners twice. It seem to always be the one tensioning the 2 cams together. It's a nightmare of a job. You might as well put the 2.5l motor into the boxster. If any swap, Subaru WRX STI.

Some people have said in posts that you can get a boxster for less than $4k with a bad motor... and apparently there are quite a few issues with the original motors. I would defiantly like to see one that cheap local.

you could do a VR6, I know there is a fellow doing one of those conversions and it looks pretty fun, there are lots of resources for slapping a GIGANTIC turbo or a MODERATELY SIZED (emphasis fail) super charger on those, you can get into all kinds of fun stuff like water air inter coolers and ITBs. Tuning can be achieved cheaply as well

There arent a lot of problems with those motors, the early ones had sleeve issues that was apparent in the first 20k and Porsche would pony up and replace the engine, even out of warranty. Only other consistant failure i have seen is the intermediate shaft busting but Porsche is still helping out the owners if they mainatained the vehicle. It would be a pretty cool setup, the new 987 with the DFI have a ton of power, but with Torque and a lighter early 986 car... ohhhh baby that would be a rocket.

Has anyone done a Honda S2000. There should be plenty of room left over for a turbo. I have seen them coming down in price recently.

I am a noob here to this Forum (first post) BUT just had my 02 Boxster S engine fail from IMS problems. Wanted to look for MORE POWER. Don't care where it comes from….LSx, Subie, Honda, etc. - just love the handling of my car. With more ponies it would be a dream!

HELP! I have a giant paperweight now.

Right...but this Forum has been doing it for quite a while…and better it seems. Just looking for options. I know about them….looks good on paper (or video) but I hear the application is a little less than expected.

You guys have been stuffing HUGE engines in TINY engine bays for some time. Have been gleaning info for a while. I KNOW there are more people that have done this than RH, the Audi V-8 guy, and the Subie guy (although he is about the release a "kit" - that will save a 100 lbs. and thousands of RH's asking price).

Keep up the good work….nice Forum!

I'm looking for a new daily driver and have been thinking about either a boxster S or Cayman S conversion. Probably would not get started till spring, so am in the beginning stages of my homework.

A Cayman S conversion would really get my blood flowing.

I've spent some time googling around, but I haven't come up with much evidence of anyone completing one yet. Have you?

A couple of months ago I was at Barber Motorsports instructing. I had someone run up to me in the pits and say "wow, that hybrid is fast, who did it?" Of course it was Scott from Renegade and we had a very good talk about hybrids. He said his boxster kit works fine for the cayman but suggested doing the boxster s instead. Biggest reasons was the cost of buying the shell and the fact that it would be lighter than the cayman (using his fiberglass boxster top).

I have an additional cost if I go this route, I'll have to sell my scissors lift and get a two post lift What a Face
