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 …

valve cover clearance

Post  turbobob924 on Mon Feb 27, 2017 10:14 pm

Hey guys!

Im wrenching again on my Pcar and started test fitting.

I have TPC motor mounts and it seems to sit fairly high such that the driver side co8il pack will definitely not clear the brake but the vale cover it self may not?

Can anyone give me a measurement from top of firewall to top of the valve cover on the drivers side?

Or pictures of the custom coil bracket.

I also have the TCP oil pan is it already just about hits the stock steering/cross member so I dont see how the engine can sit any lower?

Looks like the back of the valve cover breather base to top of the firewall is 3 inches.


I attached a picture but dont know if it worked.

Thanks for any tips and tricks.

I see LS968 engine bay pictures.
He has the booster delete manual brake with stock 944 master setup.

I don't see how mine will fit the same way.

i posted some pictures in my gallery.

do you have the subframe spaced down? most people space the subframe down at least 1/2" to gain enough hood clearance, but its also going to change things around the master cylinder

What year is your engine? If its an early LS with the perimeter bolt valve covers, then the drivers side cover has to be modified. The later covers clear as long as you use the 1/2" spacers that TPC sells.

with 1/2 spacer everything passes but you have the grind off some throttle body fat off the top or cut ur hood support beams a little ... if you need specific pic i have the hydrobooster setup and truck valve covers and engine .

The rear two coil packs need to be relocated, perhaps stacked on the front two. You have the TPC kit? The kit is setup for spacers between the subframe and frame lowering the engine, coil packs relocated, and then the valve cover should clear the Mustang hydroboost.

thanks for the tips guys.

If you have to lower the subframe 1/2 does that require the stock steering shaft to be extended?

I will reach out to TPC about all this stuff.

I modified a stock subframe previously to clear my center sump buick engine. THis required a steering shaft extension that I was not happy with.

I was hoping to be able to use the stock steering stuff again.

I'll probably get some flack for this, but I don't modify the steering shaft like a lot of people do. Instead of using the 8mm clamping bolts on each end of the shaft, I use 6mm bolts. This allows enough movement to let the shaft fit on both ends without modifying it. I'm sure someone will say the 6mm bolts are too weak, but they only clamp the pinch part of the u-joints. There isn't any real force on the bolt itself. I've been doing it this way for a long time and have never had a failure nor even seen the bolts get loose. I do use grade 10.9 bolts too.

same here. i think its accepted that with 1/2" subframe spacers you can get away with the stock steering shaft, any more and you have to lengthen it.
