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 …

Matty, I do not! Turned out it was a flat spotted tire from my, uh, little hood mishap last summer.

Well guys, after much thought and deciding not to pull the trigger on a new daily driver, I'm tossing around a new idea for the 944 S I purchased. My current 85.5 swap is just so fun as a track rat that I think I'm going to leave it that way. Soooo, I'm considering swapping the S as a fun weekend car. What I'm considering is an LSA. Has this been done before?

I'm not too worried about hood clearance as I'd probably just get a fiberglass one made, but I am concerned about the intercooler setup and torque tube adapter. Yes, I could do an LS3 crate engine a lot cheaper, but I thought I'd just consider the idea while I have a blank slate.

intercooler setup isnt hard, its just a small radiator and an electric pump and 3/4" heater hoses. torque tube adapter will be the same as any other ls engine.

my concern would be making the transaxle survive. the lsa is 560hp untuned, add some decent headers and a tune and you can get close to 600hp. hell, your a pulley swap and tune away from 650hp. i think if your actually planning to keep a trans alive you should be doing the corvette torque tube/transaxle

Torque is the real killer of a trans, not so much horsepower. With that said, the LSA makes a lot of torque... A turbo setup making similar HP numbers, but only higher in the RPM range might be easier on the trans.

Go big, get an LT4...

Hmm, that's a good point. Not sure I want to get into a T56 swap as well. I'd almost rather find an AOR and not hole shot it. Also, upon further investigation, I can get a crate LS3 set up for 525hp for 4k less than the LSA. That might be a better route. LT4 is interesting though. I hadn't thought of that. What would the benefit of that be over the LS3?

Thanks! JP

the lt4 is a gen 5 engine. direct injected, vvt, supercharged, 650hp and 650 ft/lb.

even 525 hp ls3 is 485 ft/lb. if you drive it nicely an aor might take the abuse, but i feel at those sort of torque levels one wrong move and the tranny is gonna break.

Hi JP,
Are you in Indiana or Ohio?
I'm a noob here and noticed by the tracks that would make sense. I'm in Indy and looking for some examples locally before I go down the rabbit hole.
Thanks,
Ryan
