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 …

Hood clearance

Post  msmoorenburg on Mon Aug 31, 2009 10:08 am

Here are a few pictures of my hood clearance without shims on the xmember. I plan to put a hood scoop on the car when I find one I like, But my question is has anyone run the lt1 setup without shims and just modding the hood rib. After the rib is removed I believe I will have about a 1/4 inch of clearance for motor movement. And comments?

I am having a hard time seeing how much room is there. What intake and TB is that?

I have done several with little or no mods to the hood ribs, and have NEVER shimmed a cross member on LTx or LSx conversions. Major deal is the height of your motor mount uprights and of course oil pan clearance. As stated in another thread check the condition of your trans mount first, then look at motor mounts.

I never did anything! No xmember spacers or cutting/notching. It just fit nicely. The TB boot touched the brace but I think all of them do.

Just get some silly putty and see how much clearance there is. If less than 1/4 inch, I would be surprised.

But then again, all 944's are a bit different and ALL have been crashed. Mad Theres no exception....and if youre the original owner....the factory pre-crashed it for ya!

""And Comments?""

Are you missing a socket extension from your tool cabinet? Laughing

What pan are you using?

Laughing thats where I keep my extensions too.
Gonna have to check out my transmission mount, I used spacers AND notched the hood to get my LS in, the motor mounts put the pan pretty close to the xmember, I just dont see how the motor could fit wihtout all that stuff.. unless my trans mount is completely screwed.

though the factory installed front end collision probably used forces little understood by modern science to torque my frame just right.

Anyone running a solid tranny mount?
It can be modded further to bring the rear of the tranny up and front motor down some more even from stock. I crawled under to take a look this weekend. It will be on my hit list soon.

I just ground down the ribs and it's been fine with my LT1 (I used the old RH full kit).

Edit: I used regular mounts and no spacers... just the grind of the hood.

originally i had a big hood scoop...turned out i didn't really need one, i just took two little notches out of the hood ribs and the hood closed perfectly, i could actually close it without notching the hood, but i didn't want it rubbing and putting stress on stuff. I'm running home made mounts and modded stock oil pan, no shims
