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.

PS cooling

Post  majormojo on Thu Aug 01, 2013 11:37 am

Is the Porsche PS cooling unit generally adequate, or should I look at changing over to radiator style? Car will be used for some street driving, mostly to drive to/from track days or autocross events.

Do you have the Turn1 PS pump? If not, GET ONE. You absolutely need one for track/auto-x driving.

I have a radiator style PS cooler matched with my Turn 1 pump, no problems on track...

It's probably around 4" tall and 8-10" long, maybe an 1" thick

$30 bucks from Summit, definitely more cooling surface than the stock coils. Did you mount it in the same location?

Nope, mine is mounted behind the drivers fog light. Bear in mind I've removed my fog lights and have ducted from them to the oil cooler on one side and the ps cooler on the other side

Good info, thanks. I was hoping to re-use the truck PS pump that came with my engine. Looks like I might need to re-think that. I like the idea of using the fog light openings to duct oil/ps coolers.

I wouldn't reuse that stock GM PS pump unless the car will strictly be used on the street.

In auto-x or track driving you'll boil the PS fluid with it.

Good stuff. Is the oil cooler the same dimensions as the ps cooler?

Nope, the oil cooler is a Mocal 11x7x3 if I remember correctly. It's the largest one that would fit there...
