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 …

TPI swap with T-5 bellhousing?

Post  Y_B_A_FOOL on Fri Oct 05, 2012 2:21 pm

Hello!

I would like to put my Camaro into my friend's Porsche Razz My car is a 1990 Camaro has a 350tpi with a t-5. I would like to use everything I can from my car so we can cut down on the swap cost. I have been trying to find info on using my bellhousing but I have not been very successful. All I found was this "Another option is the stock GM SBC bellhousing, and fabrication of an adapter plate system developed by 944Hybrids Forum members" on one of the 50 pages I have read today. I assume "stock" means I can use my bellhousing? My main concern is will there be a clearance issues with the chassis and/or if my bellhousing is too deep and the input shaft will be too short. I know I will need a different spline clutch, adapter plate for the bellhousing, an adapter for the pilot bearing, and a solution for the master cylinder/brake boost clearance issue. Any input is appreciated, links would be amazing! Cool

Also, I think you would have clearance issues with the TPI intake. So plan on a hood scoop too.

Yea, I hoping there will only be an issue in the front. I think this would look alright. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

You should read a little more, If you haven't looked under the car. You need to. The transmission is in the rear, As I'm sure your aware.......
To install the T5 behind the TBI motor will require a complete rear end rebuild to install an axle or at least some sort of third member. Also you will need to modify the floor pan around the bell housing area for clearance. Trust me it is not the easy way to go. It's a lot of work and a lot of money as well. I know cause I have done it . twice.......
Yes you can make the adapter plate needed for the swap , but you will need a good machinist and some time as well.
Lastly the TBI will not clear the hood, you will have to have some sort of hood scoop.
