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 …

__Z__'s 5.3 944

Post by __Z__ on Thu Nov 21, 2013 11:23 am

I would like to mention I cannot take all credit for this build. My best friend since I was 2 recently purchased his parents house, and offered me his garage to build the car as he wants to learn more about building himself. So him and I have been working on it all together. Always nice to have a helping hand.


Car purchased

We decided on a 5.3 (after kicking around other ideas), initially I wasnt going to go FI, but with header costs for our build being over a grand, and knowing eventually we would want more power, just said screw it might as well.

Did some trading and got a 05 5.3 with under 100k on it (supposedly). It came with everything minus a harness. Some of it had already been disassembled.

Started ripping her down some more for block cleaning and painting.

Sprayed

While I really like the smooth valve covers, with my past experience of imcompletion, I decided to reuse the oem valve covers, and just keep the oem coil bracket locations. I am going to however have a set of bungs welded on for breathers

Ive already ordered a LS6 cam, as well as a dbc throttle body.

Plan to order the remainder list of parts needed in the next few weeks.

LS6 Lifters
Comp 918 Valve Springs
LS9 MLS Head Gaskets
LS2 Timing Chain Set
LS2 Oil Pump
ARP Head Bolt Set
Rod Bolt Set (Still unsure on a brand)
Moroso 20140 Oil Pan
7.425 Push Rods

I also picked these up simply because they were at a price I couldnt pass up.

Also, my fuel rail kit is on route. I text the guy, his name is Wayne, super nice guy.

He also asked what intake I would be using it with, he has custom intake brackets, even for truck intakes, hooked me up with polished rails, black fittings, black/red fuel crossover line, and a integrated fuel pressure gauges.
