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 …

Did some test fitting of the new clutch master cylinder, just fits!

What orientation are guys using for the high pressure line coming out of the end of the master cylinder? Should I be aiming the 90 degree fitting down on an angle or straight across? I'll wait til I have the hydroboost setup test fitted to finalize, just curious at this point.

The inlet fitting will need to point up and back slightly to clear the HB. The outlet fitting is probably ok the way you have it. I usually turn mine in the opposite direction.

Bang in the inner fender well just a little & flip it over so the inlet is on the out side, way better if your using the hydro boost set up.

Stock master cylinder won't move enough fluid to operate the GM slave cylinder. Texas Performance Concepts has a master cylinder spec'd to work with the GM slave. It will bolt up to the stock location.

I've done them both ways. It will fit either way. I prefer not beating the fender well, but that's just me.

Found a silicone cap to plug the extra port on the coolant expansion tank. The normally aspirated tank only has the one port, but I can save a few dollars by reusing my turbo version for now and blocking this port off.

Also mounted the starter.

Test mounted the coils where the intercooler used to live. This keeps them out of the heat and frees up some space, although I'll have to buy or make custom long plug wires. Was as able to mount this way using existing holes in the car, nothing new was drilled, which is always my preference.

Installed the flywheel. Was going to do the bellhousing too and realized I don't have bellhousing bolts. Old age must be setting in.

Just out of curiosity, why did you bolt the knock sensor in that location instead of the stock location?

You'd have to ask Turn Key Engine Supply who built the motor for the original purchaser (not me). I'm not really sure why they did that. They put rubber plugs over the openings for the sensors in valley cover. I'm not really sure what the thinking was. Maybe it's easier for the custom harness they supply with the engine?

What engine are you using? And what ECU? Depending on your engine and ecu, those may not be the correct knock sensors.

that style knock sensor is used on the 58x/4x crank/cam trigger wheels that all go with the gen 4 ecm.

It's a crate engine/harness/computer package:

Similar to this spec but optioned with an aluminum block and LS1 intake:

Cool. You should be good to go then. I only asked because I've seen people trying to convert and mixing parts that didn't work together.

There are definitely some oddities with how they put together the engine.  Gen 4 location for the knock sensors, but Gen 3 location for the cam sensor through the top of the block at the back of the valley cover.  Also has a Gen 3 valley cover.  MAP only no MAF, cable throttle. It all connects nicely to the stand alone harness that came with the engine, but I do wonder why some things are the way they are.

I'm having the same issue with my stock MC. I believe I'll change to 7/8 and not 13/16 dia. I think this one is 7/8 isn't it? Thanks.

It's a CNC 7/8, don't have the part number handy but I can see if there's one on it the next time I'm working on the car.

Not much to update, had some parts come in so I'm sorting and figuring out some things. Figured I'd install the water pump so I feel like I accomplished something.

Fitted the clutch slave adapter that goes between the torque tube and the engine bell housing:

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

Did some work on the engine, installed the bellhousing without the clutch so I can confirm the drive shaft has proper insertion or if it needs adjusting before installing the clutch. Also installed the mounts and cross member and placed it on rollers to be ready to go under the car for install.

Some shots of the clearance to the pan, they make it look a little tighter than it actually is, it's a tough angle for an Iphone.

The crossmember to pan isn't really the close fit. It's the steering rack to pan that's close. You usually have to bend the metal lines on the rack for more clearance.
