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 …

New lt v8 swap

Post  jonb944 on Fri Aug 09, 2013 11:05 pm

I am new to the site and have been reading some forums trying to get and idea of what I wanted to do with my 951. After tearing the engine down and finding all that needed repaired It have decided to do a swap. I consider myself a good mechanic and fabricator and I have done engine swaps before but none with EFI. I have found some good information on this site and hope to get more helpful information here. I have found a 95 corvette motor with only 67xxx miles, and got everything from exhaust to computer. I was wanting information about the wiring harness at this time. I am going to pull all the wires from the loom and figure out what I need, and if I am missing anything. If anyone has a diagram or such it would be helpful. Thanks

Welcome to the board. What year 944 are you putting the Vette engine in? Wait, never preposition last. Of what year Porsche 944 do you wish to install a Vette engine?

Early year 944s are a little different but I can't really help with it.

It's a 86. I am still getting all the parts together. I have been looking for a good flywheel since the motor I purchased had an automatic. I still have to get the pressure plate and bellhousing and slave cylinder. I think the oil pan may need to be changed also, or at leasted modified.

I have a couple of questions, does the brake master cylinder booster have to be removed to or can it be replace with smaller one? I have a t-5 bell housing for my swap, is there a diagram for an adapter?

Yes you'll need to remove the brake booster.
Not sure there is a diagram for the T5 bell housing. You'll have to design you own adapter for that. There is a diagram for the C5 corvette bell housing.

How much does that affect the braking? Does the master cylinder need to be changed or will it work as is?

hydroboost

Post  gdopnt on Sun Aug 18, 2013 10:35 pm

I dont have my hydro boost changed over yet but i drive a 2007 comany van and didnt know it had hydroboost until i looked and there it was. It works well and I couldnt tell the difference between the types and it is easy to push. Non power brakes would not be fun to drive. google "2000 ford mustang  hydroboost" and it will show you the power unit and the master I paid 100 for the whole thing at the auto yard. Read in the brake mods section and you can see things also check the gallery and look over other members engine compartments.

ready to fit motor

Post  jonb944 on Mon Sep 16, 2013 12:24 am

I have everything together to start fitting the engine in the car and I was reading some of the posts and was wondering if there was any problem with running solid mounts. I know there will be some vibration.
