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 …

Intake woes

Post  quarterflash on Tue Sep 16, 2014 9:04 am

Trying to find a an elbow that wll fit the throttle body and mate up to the MAF etc appears to be an impossible task but the rest of you must have managed it somehow. See pics below for space.
I have looked through the LT1 forum and intakehoses.com replied to my email saying "I'm not aware of any current hose that will fit there."
Any suggestions?
I would prefer to keep the exisitng latch mechanism. Thanx,

I am using something very similar to this, bought it 10 years ago now so I am going by memory..... [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
IIRC the elbow had a 4" and 3" diameter....check to be sure.
I then shortened the length of the t-body section down. The elbow does touch the latch and hood, very very slightly. BTW, you may have to remove some of the ribs on the hood to clear the t-body/elbow.

Hi Paul, Thanks for the info. What is IIRC?
Does the elbow have an oval opening or does it stretch and squash from a round when you put the clip on?
So you removed some of the metal from the front of the throttle body so that the elbow would sit further back?
We will be cutting the fiberglass hood and inserting a bulge to clear everything.
Thankx

It is very flexible, so it can be either round or oval.

No, i only removed material from the t-body leg of the elbow....see image below, the red line is approximately where I cut.
