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 …

Oil and steering cooler options

Post  rooster on Fri May 11, 2012 1:33 pm

I'm trying to sort out how to best set up an oil cooler and power steering cooler and need some input before I order parts.
For those who have an oil cooler; how large a cooler do you have? Care to share a part number? Also are the tube/fin types sufficent or do I need to pony up for the sandwich plate type? There are tons of coolers on Summit and a bunch of trans cooler options too. Is there any reason why a trans cooler would not work as an oil cooler? oil is oil no? Finally, I see a few guys have run an oil thermostat, is this essential or only for colder climates where the oil might not get up to temp. I live in the midwest and plan to use the car in the spring and summer only, 85% lapping days and 15% street.

On to P/S - Since I plan to track the car and run Hydroboost I picked up a Turn1 pump and have been told to add a cooler for the P/S fluid or it will boil. Has anyone used the stock 951 oil cooler as a P/S cooler? I have a local source for custom lines so I should be able to get it plumbed up. Does anyone see a problem with this idea? It's just sitting there and I'd prefer to recycle instead of buying more parts....... damn this project is snowballing. Shocked

Thanks for the help.

I can tell you that I bought a trans cooler from Flexalite and use it as a power steering cooler. It was only 35.00 and easy to plumb and install.

Search "cxracing oil cooler" on ebay. Inexpensive, yet pretty good quality. I believe I have the 25 row on my track car and it works well. In the past I bought a few intercoolers from them and the quality is surprising for the price. No issues to date.

Cooler

I have a turn one pump also, I transfered the stock oil cooler from pax to driver side and plumbed it into the PS return line. I'm in the process of adding Hydroboost and hope this cooler setup will be sufficient for both syatems.

Thanks for the help folks. I've got an oil cooler on order and I'll try and plumb up the stock 951 oil cooler to the P/S lines.

One of these days I'll start my own build tread, I'm at the point where the real work begins - finally!

Here's mine:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The thermostat is to make sure that the cooler is not subjected to the initial pressure surge when the oil is cold, and thereafter to gradually introduce hot oil into the cooler and control the temp. Make sure the pressure rating for the cooler is up to the task. Not sure if the pressure rating for a tranny cooler is high enough for an oil system.

Do you need an oil cooler on an LS2 for the track?

It'd be a very good idea.
