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 …

well sema is a couple weeks past, our 2 builds both got derailed and things are just slowing down a bit now. hoping ill have some updates soon.

a small update, i have a clutch disc on route that should work with my current spec 3+ pressure plate and fidenza flywheel. ive also got the slave cylinder that ill be using, its from a 2005-2012 mustang. all i should have to do is figure out my depth from the pressure plate to the back of the bellhousing, make a spacer/mount for the slave and it can all go together and the motor can go in the car.

finally some progress. ive finally got a clutch for the beast. the end result is i used the stage 3+ spec pressure plate i already had, got a spec 3+ disc for a 944 n/a, and with a few mods it all works together along with a fidenza flywheel. i also managed to work out the slave cylinder/release bearing. i used a slave cylinder from a 2005-2012 mustang, ive used them before in custom applications, they work very well because they have a lot of possible travel (actual travel is determined by the master cylinder) making them forgiving to set up. ive got the pedestal for it machined and bolted to the adapter plate.

ive also got the oil pan powder coated, so its ready to go on. all i need to do is make the steel line from the slave to outside the bellhousing and ill be ready to bolt it all together and cram the motor in for the final time.

had to do some more machining on my slave cylinder mount. when i measured everything when it was in pieces and calculated the installed height i somehow made a .200" error and i couldnt get the adapter onto the bellhousing. woops. of well, at least it was .200" i had to remove and not add. so its in the car to stay now. hopefully with get the majority of my parts powdercoated tomorrow and can start bolting some stuff on.

That looks like a fun swap. The reliability factor alone justifies tossing the crapasil block.

its been a lot of fun so far

got my lower rad "hose" built tonight. managed to get it sealed with no pinholes on the first shot.

also started the downpipe tonight. it looks like there is a lot of room for it, but its real tight once you start snaking 3" tubing through there.

im back at it this week. my boss decided we should take the week off, so im spending the whole time working on the car.

as of now, the exhaust is complete. the turbo manifold, turbo, downpipe, exhaust and water pump cover/thermostat housing are all in for the final time. got an air intake built, all the turbo plumbing is done.

im hoping to button up most of the mechanical stuff tomorrow. ive gotta build fuel lines, mount the fan, install the rad hose, bleed the brakes and clutch, and a couple other loose ends. hoping to start wiring it by thursday.

starting to get down to the last things. the car is now 95% wired, just need to terminate the oil pressure sensor wiring and make a battery cable to the starter. had the car powered up for the first time, ecu, dash logger, and all the gauges worked right off the bat, not a single issue. that was one good thing about waiting for parts for so long, it gave me time to really plan out the wiring harness. as it is, only 2 wires from everything i added are spliced into the factory wiring, and thats switched power and an illumination wire for the boost gauge.

tomorrow ill be finishing the wiring, making fuel lines, and hopefully bleeding brakes and the clutch. if everything goes the way im hoping, itll run before next weekend.

its ready to fire. brakes and clutch are bled (although the clutch seems to lose pressure overnight, a couple pumps and its fine), everything is full of fluid. had a bit of time to i tossed an old deck in it tonight, sounds craptastic with 4x6 speakers all around. hood is back on, although i cant close it. did some trimming of the structure and its so close, i can actually get it to latch if i force it, but its on the valve cover. still not sure what im gonna do, dont really want a z28 cowl, but anything else is gonna look goofy cause its so far forward. doing a bulge would work too. just dont know.

yea i dont mind that scoop, it could work. i started thinking about how close the turbo is to the hood and how much itll bake the paint. with that in mind i decided to go with something a little larger, even though i dont really want it. i ended up ordering a scoop from a 79-82 mustang. itll get the job done, and i think itll suit the car. its in transit right now, should have it next week.

havent gotten it running yet. having some issues with the computer, the tuner is working with microtech directly to get it sorted. the ecotec is a custom application for them, so this isnt really anything unexpected. being they are in australia, it takes a bit to get an answer. hope to have it running soon though. in the mean time i got my rear valance mounted on the car, so once the scoop is on the hood both can get painted at the same time.

didnt have a lot of time today, but we got it running. just got the fuel trimmed enough so itll fire and run. my wideband is giving me issues, and the alternator isnt charging, but it runs. gonna have to get those few things sorted before i can run it much more.

got the alternator swapped out this week, fixed the problem. i started fitting my hood scoop tonight

i decided to mount the scoop backwards to make it an extractor hood. it did look kinda cool the other way, but a little too aggressive to go with the rest of the car. i need to do some fitting to make it match the curvature of the hood, and invert the curve at the front of the scoop so it matches the front of the hood.

i started with contouring the scoop to fit the hood today. ended up taking more material out than i wanted, and ill have some glassing to do. then i cut the front edge of so i can reverse the curve to match the front edge of the hood. more glassing to do lol. hoping tomorrow ill have it all put back together and ready for some filler and body work next week. id like to get it and the rear valance in paint soon.

also got my new battery. went with an Xs power s925. its a small agm battery, still plenty of cranking amps though. used these in quite a few cars. also put in one of the battery trays my shop is starting to produce.

the battery holders are built to fit specific batteries and are not universal. right now we have them to fit popular xs power and optima batteries, as well as some stinger audio batteries and braile lithium batteries.

earlier in this thread i had info on the obx fuel rail that is marketed for the lsj and doesnt fit. i did make it fit, but the end result is i ended up with leaks around the o-rings. after an evening of frustration i ended up ripping the thing off and throwing it at the wall. ended up with the modified 03-05 l61 rail back on it. i went away from it because of firewall clearance, i just ended up hammer modding the firewall a bit, was my only real option.

ive been picking away at the car this week when ive had time. ive been helping with some fiberglass work for a friends widebody fc rx7, so havent had a ton of time. sorted out a couple engine related things, had to change the idle air control motor. got some idle tuning dialed in a little better so itll at least start and run. did some more work on my scoop as well.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

ive got it all fiberglassed back together now with the correct curve on the front. being the mustang hood is flat and my hood has a decent curve to it i had to trim the bottom edge till it decently, then glass the bottom edge back together. after that i taped the hood up and put a coat of duraglass (fiberglass reinforced body filler) on the bottom edge and bolted it together. that created a perfect fit to the hood. just need to body work the front edge and itll be ready to paint.

more exciting news, if all goes well itll be on the dyno sometime on saturday

well tuning didnt happen last weekend. the downside of having your own project car in the shop you work at is that when you try to work on it, you end up having to do actual work. oh well.

it hit the dyyno today, and things didnt go quite as planned. i started having some strange electrical gremlins after just a few pulls. water/meth controller would shut off mid pull,after sorting that out the fuel pump was giving issues. got that sorted and started losing the crank sensor signal right around 6000rpm. im going to have to go through my wiring harness, i have a couple ideas of things im going to change. still a little unsure on the signal drop out, i have a slight bit of runout in the crank trigger wheel, but i doubt its enough to do anything.

the first pull was the only clean one we got. slobber rich (mid 10 afr), 15 degrees timing, 8 lbs of boost and 7200rpm. 310 whp 245 lb/ft. i think thats a decent start
