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 …

Hello, Gentlemen.

Post  rawr on Tue Sep 11, 2012 6:43 am

I've recently acquired an 85 early NA for a burly sum of one thousand dollars. The old car had a removed head from a timing belt issue, rotted interior from a leaky sunroof and overall the beater is in a general state of disarray. I've wanted a 944 for a very long time.

The plan for the car is to swap in a 5.3 and boost it with a holset. I'm also flirting with putting in a later 2jzge with variable valve timing so I don't have to do a lot of work to get around the break booster issue.


My goal is to get this swap done with as little money into it as possible, and by little I mean sub 3.5k for everything including purchase price of the car.

I'll most likely post pictures later today, but the car isn't much to look at at the moment. D:

I've done a lot of stuff, but it looks like I've done almost nothing. elephant


Car had full interior, just working on doing the little $#** until I get it planned out more.


Can you resize pictures on forum motion? I used a width command to scale, but the forum didn't recognize the image afterwords.

Welcome

First of all welcome to the forum. And welcome to an extreme addiction. Looks like you have made a good start on it but, I honestly think you may have to expand your budget of $2,500.....these conversions get very pricey but, are well worth it in the end. If you can fab a lot of parts on your own ie motor mounts, adapter plates, etc....you should be close to that budget. If not, just take your time and expand your budget to do it right. I'm about $9,000 in (including the cost of my LS1) and only about 60% complete although 95% percent of the major parts have already been purchased. Anyway....not trying to burst you budget bubble. You will find a wealth of info on this site. There are some AWESOME people here. Very Happy

I agree 2,500 for the project will be hard to hit, but I'm attempting most of the fab work myself. Making things is one of the reasons I like working on cars Smile. A friend of mine is machining the adaptor. The mounts, oil pan, drain, manifolds etc ill take care of and that's a large chunk of the change. I picked up some free ls1 parts from a friend of mine building an ls1 triumph ( drool). The suspension will blow my budget completely so I'm not counting that in the project Smile

Nice. Yea having somebody build you a conversion kit is very helpful. Free LS1 parts are always awesome! Shocked
