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 …

87 944 Turbo LS conversion decision

Post  kono712 on Mon Jan 22, 2018 6:58 pm

Bought a '87' 944 Turbo with approx 13k miles, that had lots of repair/replacement that is in great condition....ran it on the local track (total of 15 laps), and on the last lap, motor had a "rod knock". After many suggestions/research, the LS conversion seems to make the most sense. I'd like to do the conversion for the sole purpose of having a dependable track car (basic track time for just fun and nothing more). Here's my question for all you "944 LS conversion" drivers.... about how much $$ should I plan on for the total project, and second, is there anyone near W. MI that would be willing to help with the project (willing to pay for your time). Thanks.

There are a ton of variables that will dictate the cost. But, a basic LS swap for a street driven car is about $15K. This can change a lot depending on the engine you decide on. Add A/C, longtube headers, etc. and it gets higher.
If you are building a track car only, Then $12k or so. Again the engine used will decide cost.

This is also assuming you are having the build done. If you do it yourself, then you save the labor costs, which is typically 50-70 hours.

yea i would say if your going to do it yourself to budget $10k. again, depends on what route you go. the cost of the engine varies so much, you can start with a cheap common cast iron truck motor for a couple hundred bucks, and spend time finding deals on an intake manifold and accessory drive and have a complete engine for under $1k, or you could get an ls2 or ls3 costing $5k used. crate motors are another option, again more money.

Like Hotrodz and sharkey state cost depends on you. I am into my LS3 for about 9k just on the mill. My build will cost me north of 25k but thats my choice on what i chose to do. wide body 997 metal and the vette Z06 six speed and a host of other goodies. it just adds up, set a plan and follow it. Enjoy the build.

I've been looking into starting a 944 ls swap Project. I don't even have the car yet. Its starting to look like finding someone half way through there own project and looking to sell is my best bet. These turbo cars are starting to get pricey.
