HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

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).

Beautiful job !

Is that an ABS Power Brake electric power master I see?

And you flipped the throttle body…did that help clear the hood?

You appear to like speed density. Is there a reason?

Speed density? There's a MAF in the curve of the intake tube. Blade style.
TB is flipped, made the hood closing possible Very Happy
Yes , it does have ABS electric brake booster. Much cleaner install than the Hydro that I normally use.

Looks fantastic! Between the great weather and seeing really nice swaps like this is such a great motivator to finish my car sooner rather than later! Its such a bummer driving my Jeep or having my friends pick me up for the local car show visits Sad

Be careful with the ABS Systems Eric. Mine leaks from under the master. Only been on the car for 2 years.

Adnin:

Did you need to mod the that oil pan vey much?

The photo that shows the mod area (added flat piece) doesn't look like it changed anything but then again I can't see everything in the photo nor do I know what pan you used.

Not asking to devulage any secrets Very Happy but it sure would be a comfort to know there is a slick fit pan out there for a 944 Smile

Nicely done!!!!

Great Job Admin, I'm in California and after reading about the EROD motors and seeing your conversion, even though the motor is a bit pricey. I'm thinking that might be the way to go.
I see your running headers, A no-no here in CA. Mad Did you try the install with the exhaust manifolds that came withe the motor?

hi factory manifolds dont work with the steering shaft unless they are moded. There are a few on this site that have had the manifolds shaved to a new angle to make them work.
