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 …

Introduction and few questions from noob

Post  dougs951s on Sun May 21, 2017 9:26 pm

Hey guys, my name is Doug. I am a long time 944 addict and currently own an 86' NA and a heavily modified 86' 951 with a big turbo, megasquirt, coilovers, ect. I just bought a 1986 944 with a 99% complete LT4 swap. This is what I know about that car so far:

The engine and ecu/electronics are from a 96 camaro, so this is an OBDII equipped 2 bolt main block. The PO said he believed the car was built with a Renegade kit. It has what appears to be an LT4 intake and possibly LT4 heads as well, 1.6 aluminum roller rockers, a pretty big sounding cam of unknown specs, and black pushrods which might not be stock. It also has LS7 lifters, an MSD ignition, BBK throttle body, and some unknown headers + full 3" exhaust. I have no idea how many miles are on it, but it sounds extremely healthy. Right now, my tach and speedo work, but the coolant temperature gauge does not. I am not sure what the best way to get it working is. The stock 944 coolant temp gauge is an M12x1.5 thread, and the LT1 sensor is 3/8" NPT. I can not find a male 3/8" NPT to female M12 adapter anywhere.

Secondly, the car keeps throwing accessory belts because the PO bent the alternator mounting bracket. Right now its setup with no AC, but does have PS. I plan to delete the PS and to get one of the brackets that mounts the alternator down low on the passenger side of the block. I will be using the wilwood manual master cylinder for braking.

Thirdly, I am interested in getting my hands on one of the firewall reinforcement brackets that wedge up against the driver side shock tower; where do I send my money?

Lastly I am interested in tuning the motor as I have lots of experience tuning 944 NA and turbo engines on stand alone ecu's and have also done Subaru and motorcycle tuning. Is it as easy as getting software and hooking my laptop up to the OBD port? I know the optispark is the weakness on the LTx motors; and I've been told I can delete it and move to an LSx type coil setup that is more reliable? Can anyone comment on that more? Looking forward to getting to know the car over the next few days. Thanks everyone!

Thanks for the nice offer Barry, I'll keep that in mind if I have any questions. Just to be clear, this is a running and driving car that just needs some minor sorting. That link you sent me is not the brace I'm looking for, what I am interested in is the brace that presses up against the driver side shock tower. Some of you will probably know what I'm talking about.

So since I've had the car; I've deleted the power steering, headlight washer, and popup headlight system. I like my 944's in bare bones, no frills flavor. I am now interested in deleting the LT1 accessory bracket and running an alternator only bracket. Any recommendations for the best one?

im not sure if anyone makes that brace to sell. manual brake conversions vary so much that one off the shelf part isnt going to fit all cars. that being said, many people build one out of the old 2.5l alternator or power steering tensioners
