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 …

sbc swap in a 1981 924

Post  924sbc406 on Mon Oct 09, 2017 1:31 pm

sbc406 swaping into a 1981 924. needing some help. without buying a kit, what aftermarket or factory parts can i modify to install the 406 into the 924? I'm planing on using a 1986 944 transaxle and torque tube. I read that people use c5 bellhousings and make adapters. I can make the motor mounts and fab many other parts. Its a manual rack, will a stock oil pan clear? The car is a 4 lug, what's the best way to do a brake upgrade and less costly. Does anybody have any parts for sale to make the swap?

texas performance concepts makes a lot of the swap parts. they have the c5 bellhousing adapter you need to bolt the engine to the torque tube. unless you have a machine shop at your disposal i wouldnt recommend trying to make that yourself, tollerances need to be bang on.

stock oil pans wont clear the steering rack, you need a pan thats shallow at the front with a rear sump.

Thank you,  Would you suggest using the 944 transaxle  or go with a 8.8 and using a t5 trans? The 406 is a mild build somewhere around 400hp, And going to be a weekend street car.

a 944 turbo transaxle will take that sort of power providing your not trying to do burnouts all the time. cutting the car up to put a solid axle and a trans on the back of the motor is quite the undertaking. you have to lose the factory heater system for one, and your pretty much redoing the tunnel and floor from firewall to behind the back seats.
