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 …

Quite a few street drives over the last month, new temp sensor is reading well on the gauge so hopefully the first one was just faulty. Couple more scheduled track days to go this season, first real frost hit the grass this morning, hoping it’s not too early a winter.

A few engine bay pictures, ran a fresh fuel hose to the rail which let me use a hose end to get rid of the blue coupler I had used before, the one blue fitting was bugging my OCD.

Well, last track day of the season was Saturday, then we got that snow on Sunday, and then my fresh rims and tires arrived, so I guess I’ll have to wait til spring to try them out!

Had a few wet track days this year which was unfortunate, but did allow me to slow things down and feel out the new engine setup and get used to things. Saturday was cool, but dry! Was able to finally push a bit harder. The car is so fast now, it's really a bizarre sensation, I'm sitting in the same car, the handling and brakes are the same, but the gas pedal is totally different. And it's not like just upping turbo power on the stock engine, the power delivery and character of the engine is so different.

I’ve run a staggered setup of 8” front and 10” rear for years, but as my driving has gotten quicker I feel like I’m lacking some front end grip. Moving to this setup of 10” all round should give me some more front bite and allow me to swap wheels between front and back between track days to even out wear.

Thanks for the chat earlier today, been skimming thru your thread all evening!!

So is that the same tire/wheel you had on the rear, just now you have a matching set the front? I will be very interested to hear how it goes next year. I am a big fan of matching all 4 corners for rotation purposes.

No, totally different rims from my staggered setup Larry. I was running 993 narrow body hollow spokes before this setup.

Nice!  Which offset did you got with on the wheels?  Very interested to hear your results and if you have any clearance issues.  They look great.  
Go test them, those sleds look like they would be great for floating along in the snow!

Square! I agree. Those Enkei 18s look good on your car. Nice and light too.

I run 17x9 ET55 all around.

Bit of a winter update. Replaced my front orange indicator lenses with some clear lenses. Also realigned my rear bumper so it sits straight, has been bugging me for years. No pictures of that stuff, sort of boring cosmetic stuff.

Replaced my stock rubber steering rack bushings with some stiffer delrin blue ones:

I also installed a fuel pressure gauge, so that meant reorganizing the gauge layout on the centre console:

I had to lengthen the fuel line going to the rail to account for the sensor fitting (brass fitting with wire coming out of it).

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

I also upgraded my fuel pump from the stock 944 Turbo unit (blue) to a Bosch 044 pump. For the 044 I ditched the banjo style check valve that comes with the pump and used a -06 Quantum check valve instead, this let me use a free flow AN fitting coming out of the pump.

While I had things apart I replaced the fuel filter/regulator and used better fittings than the black clip on ones. I read the clip on ones may leak, I didn’t have any issues but better safe than sorry.

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

Also noticed the filter/regulator that came out had a huge dent in it. No idea how I missed that when installing it, I was pretty tired rushing to get it out last spring, but I’m sure I would have noticed that. There’s nothing that could have dented it where it’s mounted, no movement in the mount. It’s possible a stone or marble on the track could have bounced up and hit it (it’s mounted above the half shaft) but seems unlikely.

I just bought a bosch 044 too. From what I've read they're known to melt stock wiring or cause a huge voltage drop, so be sure to upgrade the wiring to the fuel pump. I used 8guage wiring (probably overkill).

Alright, now time for a more interesting update. The biggest thing you’ll hear from 944 people when you tell them you’re going to LS swap is “you’re going to add too much weight and ruin the balance of the car”.

I had a chance to corner scale my car again, and here’s the results:

In 2016 before the LS2 swap my car weighed 2942 lbs.

In 2019 after the LS2 swap my car weighed 2935 lbs.

Other changes since the “before” 2016 weight include a fibreglass hood (weight savings), Enkei rims instead of 993 Hollow Spokes (weight savings), 265 width front tires instead of 235 front tires (weight gain) and 996 GT3 front calipers and 330mm Cayenne rotors (weight gain). Both measurements were taken with a 1/2 tank of gas. So it’s pretty much a wash, no weight gained!

Finished up a couple track days already this season. Picked up a lot of grip from fresh tires (AD08R) and the wider front rims (265 up from 235). LS2 continues to impress and also gets interesting reactions from folks at the track.
