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 …

Selling my 1986 Porsche 951 LS1 :(

Post  Luke714 on Wed Nov 15, 2017 8:11 am

$15,000

This is a sad day for me, but it’s finally time to get rid of my long time “fun” car and move onto new projects and chapters of life. I’m hoping that this car can find a home where it will bring as many smiles to the new owner as it did to me.

All the modification details are below. In 2010 I installed a second generation LS1 V8 from a 2004 Pontiac GTO. I’ve been driving the car regularly in the summers, and have put on approximately 20k on the swap with very few issues. I’ve recently had it on a track once and it was an absolute blast, other than that I’ve used it for autocross off and on. I’ve never been a very skilled driver, but I’m sure with the right person behind the wheel it could be a monster. The car is in the neighborhood of 3000 lb, and has 340 WHEEL horsepower (measured), making it quite quick. I’ve also gone through the whole suspension in order to bring the rest of the car up to speed with the additional power.

I bought the original car in 2009 with 84k on it and in rough shape, the engine swap and extensive suspension work has brought the car back into its performance prime. Please see below for all the goodies. Everyone has different tastes when it comes to modifying a car, and whoever the buyer is I’m sure you will make the car your own, but what I can say is that this swap has been installed for long enough and has had enough miles put on it to be sure that the bugs have been worked out. My good friend and I recently drove the car from Boston to Madison WI and back with plenty of side trips along the way (~1,800 miles) and a track day in the middle, the car was fine the whole time. I’ve never driven the car in the snow, and the whole car is rust free.

I’m asking $15,000 and would ask that only serious buyers inquire, just send me a PM and I’ll get back to you in the evening after work. For more information I've made a public Facebook page for the car that you can find a link to below. I am in the Boston/Northeast area. I believe that is an excellent price for a car that has this much power, and has been shaken down this thoroughly. These cars are a pleasure to work on and a pleasure to drive.

No car is perfect, and in the interest of transparency I want to make the buyer aware of certain issues: The paint is not perfect (see photos), the dash is cracked (like so many other 944’s out there), there's a tiny bit of curb rash on one wheel, I have not installed AC (the evaporator is still in the dash, so it could be installed without too much trouble), the odometer is not currently working, and like many German cars not all the interior electronics are perfectly functional. The radio, windows, wipers, lights, and mirrors all work fine though. Additionally, while I find this a major advantage and a fun aspect of the car, some people may find the manual steering, brakes, and clutch to be too heavy for their taste. Be warned that this is a visceral car to drive and demands serious respect when behind the wheel.

This was the original forum that helped me with the conversion, you can still find my build thread on here, but unfortunately Photobucket singlehandedly messed that all up, and I'm not paying them $33 bucks a month for their image hosting...

I've made a Facebook page with lots of information:

Nice list of modifications.  What all would need to be done to hook up the AC?  Just adapter lines from the GM to Porsche?

Hi, thanks! I don't want to lead you wrong and tell you it would be a quick job. The evaporator is still there, as are the connections to it, but you would still have to install the compressor and condenser. Being in Maine I never was able to check this one off my list.

Hello,

I've had time to clean the car up for the spring and do the regular maintenance so I've started advertising it again for the spring! Currently using it as my daily driver, and having a ton of fun Smile Posted on craigslist now, but you can also send me a PM.

Hello all,

The car is SOLD. Thank you all for being such great support during the build 8 years ago! I plan to keep the Facebook page I made for the car active so that other swappers can look. There's a complete ledger with all the parts listed: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
