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 …

New to the 944

Post  944james on Fri May 22, 2015 11:52 am

Okay so I just bought an 85 944 for around $450. Current 2.5l gets fuel but no spark, turns over but no start. Thus the cheep price. The interior is shot paint is faded. Thus again the cheep price. Plan is to put an 5.3 Alum block and not sure what else unless I can source a cheep LS1 here in okieland. Cant wait to start pulling the 2.5 and building the LS. Any and all support is much appreciated.

I'm not sure what the market is like down there for the 5.3, but to find a reasonably priced L33 (aluminum block) drop-out with all the goodies like the throttle pedal (drive by wire), ECU, wring harness and all the accessories, I had to stalk car-part.com and craigslist for close to year. I eventually managed a fairly low mile engine with everything for about $1,400 delivered.

If I had been impatient or wanted to buy everything piece by piece, buying an LS1 short or long block would have only added about $500 to my engine cost. As it is, I'm still not sure my L33 will be significantly less expensive than a well bought LS1 after I finish purchasing new accessories, engine mounts, flywheel & clutch, and intake parts. I'm still deciding how I'm going to approach accessories, but I may even end up replacing my water pump as part of the conversion.

With so much being changed, the real benefit to me from the drop-out is the electronics. The ECU can be flashed and I'll have the right sensors for my harness, along with the matching drive by wire pedal .. assuming I stay DBW. I haven't decided if I'm going to convert back to a manual throttle pedal yet. I'll probably make that decision after the engine is mounted in the car and I have the accessories sorted.
