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 …

Oil Pressure sender adapter

Post  Tim on Mon Jan 20, 2014 5:18 pm

I did a search, but I'm having trouble figuring out if anyone is actually using the stock Porsche sender and how they adapted it to the LS1 head.
I went to several parts stores and hardware stores and can't find anything.
If anyone knows where to find an adapter please let me know!

Thanks, Rich. You're always there when I need you! haha.
This is the option I was looking at if I couldn't keep my stock sending unit.
Just went ahead and purchased the parts you mentioned in your build thread.
Now, who needs a stock 951 sender?  lol!

Don't want to hijack your post but I was wondering if the stock LS1 oil pressure sending unit will work with an aftermarket gauge or is it just used for an idiot light. I have a two gauge A-pillar mount and was planning on going with an oil pressure gauge and a oil temp gauge and not worry about hooking up the factory Porsche gauge.

Not sure if it will work aftermarket gauges , but it is not need for the motor to run. The factory sender goes straight to the gauge cluster in the factory car.

I hope to be running by the end of the weekend. Just awaiting parts now. We'll see how that sender/adapter combo works for me.

If you want to use the factory sending unit, here's how I do it.

Post  Admin on Sat Jan 25, 2014 8:52 am

I first take the stock LS1 oil pressure sensor and remove all the plastic from the top and inside, Then drill and tap it for 1/8" NPT (national pipe thread) This makes a cheap but effective adapter.

Then you can install a 1.5" nipple and a 90* fitting on top of that for clearance around the intake manifold.

Then take the factory Porsche oil pressure sender and carefully ( I stress carefully) drill and tap the end of the sensor. You have about 1/2" of depth that you can drill and tap without causing any damage. Take your time , it easy to drill , the metal is very soft. Make sure that you clean the metal shavings out with cleaner and a lot of air.

Now carefully install it and your done!

Another secret leaked

Post  Gutterboy on Sat Jan 25, 2014 9:47 am

Damn your good at what you do Eric.

Thanks for the informative "how to" and the pictures on how you acheived this.

Probably won't learn all your secrets but this one certainly helps.

Stack that on the to do list for my build!  Laughing

I went with this, which was recommended by others. A little fiddling and it fit.

Yes that will work ,but you probably spent $60 plus or better compared to twenty minutes of work and $5 worth of parts Shocked 
Last one of the VDO sending units that I bough from summit was $58 , did you find them cheaper?

Old thread

Post  simon123 on Fri Jan 31, 2014 8:07 am

This is from one of my earlier posts.

Here is the Street Performance Oil pressure adaptor.
This version allows you to use the existing device that's behind the intake manifold and also use a
1/8" sensor that's specified in Sloan's manual.

Mine was $40.50 from Summit. I needed one anyway since the original got crushed and the "good used" one I bought was bad. I'm also in a different boat than you are. The oil pressure sender fitting on my engine was already 1/8" NPT.

We welded a spark plug anti-fouler to the original adapter to make the Porsche one work before we found out it was bad. If you have a steel fitting that fits the hole in the LSx, you could do that instead of tapping the sender. Anything I can do to use wear items and sensors as they are out of the box, I'll do.

Also, we're an Auto Meter dealer.  Cool

You got me there. It is definitely more than $6 or $7.
However, I will talk to VDO and see what I may be able to get a bulk quantity of them for, in case other guys may be interested.

I just bought a VDO 360 009 sending unit on Amazon for $30.  They had them for as cheap as $18.00 but the delivery was shown to be weeks, for $30 I got 2 day delivery.  Guess I am just impatient.
