HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Tue Jul 09, 2013 4:56 am by Admin

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 …

Hey guys I could use some help again. I want to re-create the Porsche throttle pedal ergonomics but I hacked out the factory firewall and throttle cable brackets. Can anyone hold some paper or cardboard along the side of their gas pedal and trace what angle it has from the floor at both idle and full throttle? I'm still using the stock pedal and where it mounts to the floor but don't know where in space to position the angle or how much it travels.

Wire harness/loom out of an 00's Buick Lesabre - which is a domestic, modern GM car with rear seat mount battery. I feel like I'm getting a relatively clean and integrated set of power dist technology plus a big chunk of body harness all in one package.

Starting to play with radiator and fan options. I found what most of you guys are running on the V8 conversions but decided to try an OEM factory solution first. Some of the photos show a Jeep radiator but I have ruled that out. I am currently designing brackets around a Ford Ranger/Explorer 4.X L radiator married up to the donor Mustang's V6 fan.

Over the past several months I have been fabbing various brackets that mount the radiator, cooling fan, horns, washer fluid bottle, ps cooler, ps fluid tank and other items.

And I have pulled the motor out one last time - to finish working on the engine bay. Then I will paint the bay and put the motor in - with a goal of trying to get it making noise by around July of this year.

Not even close to ready to drive!
I’m deep into wiring right now. Mashing harnesses from at least three different cars.

I know the feeling. Feels like my car is going to fossilize before I get it on the road again. Headers and twin turbo plumbing are holding me up. Haven't started wiring yet but have a 99 GTP harness. I hear the Monte Carlo harness is easier.

You'll get all of that sorted out. It's cool how you have that custom engine bay.

No muffler yet and probably a couple of exhaust leaks. However progress is progress!

I shot a better resolution vid of the motor running and updated the post above.

I've purchased a Ford 8.8 posi rear axle with factory 3 link and am starting to convert my 944 over to this axle. I'll be swapping the rear discs over and there will a few months of fab work ahead as I delete the mounting points for the upper 4 link and convert to a 3 link and panhard bar.

Wow almost a year without updates! Bad Sparkydog, bad!

OK the exhaust parts were converted into this:

And the 8.8 posi 3-link conversion from the 7.5 4-link is finished:

With panhard bar:

To accomplish all that I had to rewind clear back to this:

Also note a wider driveline tunnel in that last picture. That's because my GM motor is offset to the right about 2" and the Ford 8.8 rear axle is asymmetric as well.
