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 …

Using GM "F body" PS pump and Hydroboost, is original reservoir OK?

Post  grobb284 on Sun Jun 10, 2012 3:13 pm

For those with the LS1 conversion, using the GM "F body" PS pump. and also hydroboost, did you continue to use the GM plastic integral reservoir, or go to a remote PS reservoir?

Anyone using the Trans Am PS cooler?

Pictures are always nice.

PS Pump

Post  fliermike45 on Sun Jun 10, 2012 5:41 pm

I used a Turn One PS Pump which is an uprated GM pump and appears to use the stock reservoir. According to the experts the stock GM pump cannot generate sufficient pressure for the Porsche steering rack. I have not changed the reservoir with the addition of Hydroboost. I moved the stock PS cooler from the pax side to the driver's side.

Picture taken before adding the Hydroboost.

I've used factory GM pumps with the plastic res, and a cooler and have had no real complaints.

TonyG would boil the power steering fluid when he used the factory F body pump, even with a cooler on the track.

If the car is just a street car I'm sure it'll be fine, otherwise get the Turn1 pump. I have a Turn1 on my car with a cooler and I've never had an issue on the street or the track.
