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 …

What is the easiest V8 to transplant?

Post  ThomasJoseph315 on Mon Jun 16, 2014 12:08 am

Not sure if there is an easy answer for this, but what engine would be the easiest?

My guess would be a carbureted small block chevy. Not much electrical stuff to make that engine run. You only need to custom fabricate engine mounts and a hood scoop(not sure there is enough space for the carb). All other parts can be purchased, if you don't want to spend time fabricating them yourself.

The small block is quite heavy, I would switch to aluminium heads and intake manifold.

As far as I know, the major changes came in 1986, when the centerbolt valve covers came. The cylinder heads were changed, for better flow I believe, and the seal behind the flywheel was changed into a one-piece. SBC guys can probably tell you more.

Yes you are correct. In 86 gm also changed the angle of the intake bolts. Pre 86 intake doesn't fit post 86 heads or vice versa. People have modified lt1 intakes to fit pre 86 but it's unnecessary. Heads post 86 also received new bolt holes on the front for accessory brackets to include full serpentine setup.

V8 transplants

Post  Jim7 on Tue Jul 22, 2014 6:37 pm

IMHO non are easy so it comes down to the objective of the change. If you want a 1/4 mile beast then this is the wrong platform. On the other hand if you want to enhance the already amazing R/T 944 platform an LS alloy lump is the thing. Then with 450 ft'pds torque and 400+hp you'd need to match the motor with the chassis. So it comes down to how you want to use the machine. If it's to impress ur friends on the streets thats easy but if you want to demolish 911s and Vett's on track you need to go further. As my friend said 'Speed costs money'.
