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 …

Couldn't you make an extension to move the throttle body out and tilted down some. I know there is someone one this forum that has a mill and could make something like that for you......... Smile Very Happy Smile Very Happy Smile

That took all of 5 minutes. The Vette intake with 5.3l throttle body comes right up to the firewall area perfectly and the rear area (now located in the front engine bay) CLEARS the hood line. However, If you wanted to do this, you would have to remove/modify the fan blower and cut a hole there for the air filter set-up. I think MatthewB did this with his Ford Overhead cam engine. I don't care about AC, but I want heat in the winter.
There would be another PLUS to reversing the intake....The stock 944 Throttle cable would hook right up to the throttle body.... Hmmmm Very Happy

While we are on the subject, I do recall the 944 fan blowers being high$$$. Has anyone ever put in an aftermarket blower? If this can be done relatively simple/inexpensive, I may just do this reverse intake setup....POPP

Man, there seems to be no limit here...RH sure screwed the pooch. "The 5.3L truck engine intake will not clear the 944 hood"...Where have I heard something like that before? Dey don't know us bewwy well, do dey?

Misinfo Mofo

Post  xschop on Sun Jun 28, 2009 10:04 am

The misinformation/propaganda RH puts out misleads you to wanting to put in the LS1 with their kit. The truck intake is 3" higher than the Vette intake and is a Torque producer. the Vette intake goes right on the 4.8l 5.3l and 6.0 iron blocks and fits nicely under the hood with at least 3/4" X-member drop and while maintaining 3/8 to 1/2" oil pan to xmember clearance. As far as Oil pan for the LS/LM7 engines, this $225 Moroso 20140 is the schiznit with 1.5" sump to x-member clearance. When JJ figures the Driver's side header, the sh*t will hit the fan over at Gestapovile......chirp chirp Byatches

"I think I am the first to put in the 5.3l Truck motor. The Vette intake is Swcheet. Can the Throttle body be trimmed on the forward top of it for a little more hood clearance? Thought somebody on Gestapoville mentioned that...."

Nope - I'm doing the 5.3l HO (all alloy block) swap Twisted Evil

I'm using an LS2 intake with a big 90mm TPIS throttle body. Never thought of reversing it, though, and I've already cut out a big hole in my hood. I do like the look of a hood bulge:

I had to cut a slit out of the hood to fit the throttle body, pics are over at cricketville (ill have to dig through an move everything over one day) It takes 2 mins and a dremel, not difficult to do.
The hood buldge looks fricken sweet tho pirat

#7 primary is done. Just working out the bends on #5, and will be grinding the protrusion on the block to make'em fit.

Do you think the tubes can be cut off right at the flange, then the flange set up on a mill to clean the flange?
If so, I can do this part of the Modification quickly and with precision.
Woo-hoo.....exited, but patient..... Cool

I would think so, though the only thing I might be worried about is that cutting them on the outside of the flange removes a bit of straight section before each primary does a bend. That initial straight section may help scavenge the CC and aid flow. Also, the best way to weld the primaries is on the inside of the port rather than the outside, so you couldn't use the port itself as a straight section. I'm no guru so maybe it's not enough to make a difference - just thinking.

I'm still running into some interference in #1, #7 and the top steering knuckle. The primaries are very close together - I was even thinking I might need to warp them a bit (squish them) to make them fit.

I have the 1" drop spacers so this is probably why I had good clearance when I checked them out at first. I wonder if the manual rack sits lower than this power rack? If it does then the full 1" xmember drop is not needed.....

FINALLY!!!

Sorry it took so long to get to this point. It was the #1 primary that was giving me all the problems, but I've got it licked:

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

This design meets all of my requirements:

- fits (duh)
- you don't have to remove the steering shaft
- you can access the plugs
- it uses as much of the original header as possible (in fact, all of the original parts are used)
- and it takes into consideration different vertical block locations, i.e. works just as well with a dropped crossmember than without.
- clears the brake MC
- there's even space for your header wrap, Tet!

I'll get it tacked in the next couple of days, then take all the dimensions and angles and post them to the board.

...and leaves a little more room for the #7 primary (had your wrap in mind). Otherwise, those two would be mashed together tight. Welding them would have been a real PITA.
