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).

Mounting plate

Post  kevin924kevin on Fri Nov 07, 2014 12:31 pm

So i have a friend at a machine shop and they are going to make my mounting plate for the firewall and hydroboost. Question, does the angle matter if it sits out from the firewall or can it be reset into the firewall space ie the factory opening. I had a file shipped to me by one of our members for the same plate everyone uses. What is the perfect angle, i think i will just duplicate my old cereal bowl angle that porsche did, our do i need any mods?

From what I've read from other topics is the angle is 12°.

Went with 12 degrees on my plate. I welded the raised portion shut once i was satisfied with the angle.

The hydroboost was probably one of the most tedius parts of my swap, i spent many hours under the dash mocking everything up. Tightening the nut on the hydroboost also was a major PITA.

Techno- looks good. Just like the one I have. The main nut does suck. If used large vise grabs to tighten mine. Just gotta make sure it's straight when you mount everything. Test fit the brake clevis before tightening to fire wall because you may have to adjust it.

I ended up buying the "special tool" for the nut, makes life soooooo much easier. Found it on Ebay for $40, expensive, but a huge time saver.

Just googled the 'tool'... that would have saved alot of grief.

If you check out the results, the wrench type i dont think would work with the way the nut sits in the recessed section of the mounting plate (atleast on the way my mounting plate was made). Looks like another guy milled a socket which would work great. Check out this thread..

Wish i had that socket when i did mine, i used the largest pair of channel locks i have with a cheater pipe and damn near ripped my vice off the table untightening and tightening that nut.

Lucky you with the vise I didn't even have one. Vise grips and some blood sweat and tears got that job done.

I have the socket tool, no way to get a wrench on mine as the mounting plate has a large recess. I can remove/tighten the nut with the HB unit attached to the firewall. This is a must for my setup as there is not enough room to remove/install the HB firewall plate as one unit.

Do you guys mounts the boost to the plate then install on the fire wall? Or mount plate to firewall then install booster ( my engine is install and I don't have much room for that) or you drop the x member and install it as a unit with the plate? I'm having a hard time under the dash to torq the booster nut.......

I found it easier to mount booster to the plate first then mount to firewall

Ya i installed mine no problem. Easier to have a buddy hold it up while you put the nuts on from inside. Easiest way I found was to just take the driver seat out so you have room to get under the dash. Pull the carpet back as much as you can and us small rachet
