HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 5:56 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 …

1/3 Life Crisis... 1987 944 turbo ls1 conversion

Post  Murrdog9000 on Thu Feb 25, 2016 4:08 pm

Hi there, names Kevin. New member here out of upstate New York. I had been feeling bored lately as I haven't worked on cars in about 5 years so I decided that I wanted to work on something, just wasn't sure what. I consulted a close friend of mine and he turned me towards the 944's and I took a liking to them. Which led me to picking up this old girl. Once I get my garage in order I will be swapping an ls1 into her. I've got a lot to learn and research so if anyone has any specific threads or any information that I should look at, please point me in their direction.

I have a 1986 951 I dropped an LS in and my brother-in-law who has an 86 944 Turbo and a 89 944 Turbo S lives outside of Buffalo. He is on the edge of going the LS route after driving my car. It is a great conversion and there is a wealth of information on this site.

I'm very excited.... I love the car and I've been wanting something v8 and rear wheel drive so it covers all the bases. I've just been reading as much as I can, seems to be a lot of knowledgable people on here.

Would like to find out if the location near Albany works on "customer" cars. I have a LT car that needs to go back together. Bought it partially disassembled, have a replacement engine that needs to go back in. 203-415-6151. Be great if we can we talk.

Thanks man. I honestly got very lucky with this car. I know little to nothing about Porsche's. The guy I bought it off owned a shop north of albany and seemed to be a perfectionist.


update: hoping to put in an order for a motor tomorrow, after that will be the parts for the swap and then the fun begins. Twisted Evil

I'm putting a a down payment on a tuned Ls6 that made 400whp/400tq in about an hour, so it looks like this build is going to happen Very Happy My next step is to figure out what swap parts I need to buy. Hoping to start the work in a month or less bounce

Ended up going with an ls2 because the person I was supposed to buy an ls6 off decided to try to scam me. Now I'm just waiting on the swap parts from TPC Rolling Eyes

I'll be very interested in your progress. You are just a bit in front of where I am. I'm waiting for the parts from TPC but I'll pull the Turbo motor today or tomorrow. I'm going with an F-body LS1 motor so all the accessories should fit. Are you planning to keep A/C and PS?

Well, my buddy and I got the motor in and then progress slowed. We were sharing a garage with someone and things went sour. The good news is that I got my home garage fixed up and I recently got my 944 in there. Still have a lot of work to do though.

Things to do:
Brake system
Coolant system
Fuel lines
Headers/exhaust
Wiring

My buddy who has been helping me every step of the way may be moving to north Carolina so I'm not sure what Il do. Might have to search for a shop that could finish it up seeing as I'm out of my league in this build.

Il try to get some pictures up but the forum isn't letting me.
