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 member with a new build

Post  Jmoore on Thu Apr 07, 2016 1:01 pm

Hello all, as the title of the thread states, I am a new member to the site and will be building a v8 track car with some of my buddies. The car we are building is an 86 944 N/A that we are going to strip completely and build from there. We haven't decided on LTx or LSx just yet as availability of these engines for a fair price in our area is a concern.

I'm located in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. I'm fairly concerned about brakes on this car more than anything else (namely price). I know of the turbo big brake upgrade and the wilwood four piston caliper conversion, are there any other feasible options that would be good?

Go into the brake section ,Read through some of the build threads. Their is a lot of really great knowledge and very smart people hear. Everything you need is at your finger tips.

We got down to tearing down the car this weekend, but stuck to interior, I.E. wiring harness, dash, seats, carpeting, the works. Found a little loose change rolling around and a very extensive wiring mess for a sound system. It had multiple relays in different locations that I couldn't even comprehend as to what they were trying to do with it. Plenty of stuff to sell on eBay but not a lot of stuff I can reuse. I'm working on figuring out how to make a mold of the original dash out of fiberglass of something of the sort, as much weight savings as I can get

We're still looking for an engine do drop into the car, well really we're still searching for just about everything, as well as hopefully recruiting another friend who can weld (properly)

i remember seeing some fiberglass race dashes for a 944 somewhere. might have been ebay. might be worth a look, would end up being cheaper and easier than building a mold just to pop one dash out.

Yeah, if you want to save time and just buy a race dash, ebay or GT Racing have fiberglass ones for $175-$250. Or you could fab one out of aluminum sheet. Good luck with your build.

I was thinking of making a few dash's from the mold, maybe a few full sized and a few half dash's and selling them (I have a lot of free time and like making things with my hands) of course all of it depends on how the first one turned out. Nothing is certain just yet but everything is possible. We have narrowed down the engine to either a 4.8 or 5.3 ls (One nearby for $650 with everything included, wiring harness, accessories, etc.). I'm still working on tearing all the crappy kindling that was the insulation and the small nicknacks here and there
