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 …

Rear caliper choice for LS430 setup

Post  jpkinerk on Sun Mar 06, 2016 7:51 pm

Every once and awhile I see people talking about running RX7 rear calipers with their LS430 front calipers. I've been running stock 944 turbo rear calipers with my LS430 calipers, using a BMW hydroboost and 5/35 proportioning valve. It seems fairly well-balanced, but I don't know what I don't know. Ya know?

As long as you are balanced then you are good to go. The RX7 calps have a little larger pad and piston area. I've been in on two hybrids with them. One with balance bar which was pretty good for manual brakes, but the hydroboost and the combo was astounding.

the original swap was used with fd rx7 calipers (93-95 in north america), however for a short time i used fc turbo calipers. they are the same basic design, same piston size, same pad size and same bolt pattern, the fd calipers just look a little better. the rx7 caliper swap was designed to be used with 86 944 turbo rotors for 86 and earlier cars, and 87+ turbo rotors for 87+ cars.
