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 …

87 racecar partout

Post  watsondk on Mon Sep 23, 2013 9:06 pm

Hey all, I recently came across a barn find of sorts, its an 87 NA that had been stripped and converted for track duty. The previous owner passed away a while ago so I wasn't able to find out much about the car when I purchased. Prices are best offer, PM me something reasonable and we'll work something out.

I'll lead with what I know:

Ground control front coilovers-yellow konis and 450 lb/in springs
Yellow Koni rear dampers-unsure about rear torsion bar, will have to take apart before I know
944 Turbo swaybars 18mm rear 24 mm front (I may use this suspension and sell current, see below)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Non LSD trans, not sure what code, will know once I drop the drivetrain
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Running 2.5 NA engine-missing front timing belt cover but fired right up after swapping starters and dme relay

Long tube 944 NA headers
3" header back exhaust-would be good for a V8 swap if you connect via Y-pipe, might work if you're local

944 Turbo Brembo Brakes-not sure of year, car is an 87 so I believe they are NOT the 86 turbo setup. Calipers will clean up really well, not sure what brake pads, rotors are rusted from sitting may clean up with use(???). I may use these and sell my current setup (see below)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

18" 911 wheels-painted black some curb rash before AND after painting-3 tires have minimal life 1 rear tire is corded, looking to sell local

4-post hood pin setup with bracing, slick setup not sure who made but frees up the hood latch area while providing support for header panel
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Momo steering wheel hub w/ripoff wheel (not the setup shown in pic)
Lightweight door cards
Modified sunroof panel, four latches to remove instead of sunroof mechanism
Drivers sideview mirror-, unsure of motors condition
Front and rear fiberglass/plastic clips
Assortment of switches, relays, etc...let me know if you need minor parts and I'll see if I have it.

For those who don't know, I'm the one who purchased xschop's 948:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Potentially for sale depending on offers:

Lexus LS430 Front/RX7 rear brake setup, all caliper adapters/hardware, calipers, brake pads, front rotors. This setup works great and I have no problem locking them up even with my manual dual MC setup.

Late struts adapted for early damper inserts and coilovers with 300 lb/in springs

front brakes and struts seen in xschop's pics on these pages:

Is that some sort of brace on the transaxle?

Jp, ill send you an email.

Zeus, yes it is. Inside has a rod end that bolts to the trans using one of the transmission flange bolts, other end is female threaded, you drill a hole in the rear tire well and run a bolt into the brace using large fender washers to brace the sheetmetal. I swapped it onto my ride, seems to help getting into second and third under hard accel as the trans doesnt move around as much. Im undecided on whether ill keep it. Im afraid the solid mount to the trans will fatigue the aluminum and damage the tire well. Maybe a version with poly bushings would work???

transaxle mount

Post  Gutterboy on Fri Sep 27, 2013 11:14 pm

isn't xschop's polyurethane billet the easiest and best semi-solid mount for a fix on solidifying the movement of the transaxle? he gives you polyurethane bushings to keep it just soft enough to remove any vibration that a solid mount would pose.

Alternatively you could re-use your old transaxle mount hangar and do the ???? mod where you tape the hangar up and pour it full of polyurethane something compound. sorry, read all that info 2 months ago and don't remember the specifics. should be enough to go on for advanced searches on the forum though.

My car does have the poly mounts, even with them there is enough movement to make the 1-2 shift difficult on harder launches.

An update on whats available.
Fuel pump, hatch lock and releases, sun visors have sold. Carpet and door cards are pending.
Ground control coilovers and lexus front brakes are pending

am i missing something here?

Post  Gutterboy on Sat Sep 28, 2013 3:03 pm

i thought launches would kill a transaxle no matter whether you had a turbo transaxle or not.

better axles and semi-solid mount like xschop's will keep you from blowing cv joints, but if you have good wide tires isn't the turbo transaxle the weakpoint if you do launches under even stock ls1 power?

i would love to know if i could get away with aggressive hops off the line if it didn't mean i am somewhat compromising the reliability of my street build.

Personally I launch by letting the clutch slip just a bit while on the brake to preload drivetrain. As I takeoff I roll onto the throttle, I believe the issue is when you try to do a clutch dump especially at high rpm and with lots of tire. Some of the guys with built 5.7's and 6.2's could probably give more info on trans durability.

Now that you guys mention it I actually have a spare xschop trans mount. Its available for sale as well.

Dash is badly cracked, unless you need it for a core probably not worth much.

Ok thanks. How about the clock, looking for one for a core. Accordion rubber behind the steering column collar. Dash vents.
