HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 1:56 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 …

Are you planning to permanently install the wideband?

If you are, you don't need to wait for pro to start tuning. You could just wire it into your EGR or A/C pressure input.

Well, the power steering is in. What a pain. Between oil pan clearance, intermediate shaft coupling, and the steel lines on the rack, fitting that thing wasn't exactly fun. The high pressure side of the system is all all connected, now I just have to run my return lines and add my cooler up front. I'll be glad when the hydroboost is 100% finished.

Monday I received my rear trans cover back from the machine shop to accommodate the reinforcement plate. They did a nice job and turnaround was really quick. Buttoned the trans back up last night and now I'm waiting for the silicone gasket material to finishing curing before I put it back in tonight and fill it up for the second time.

After all of the above is wrapped up, then it's on to the turbo radiator support and plumbing the cooling system. Oh, and mounting my remote oil filter. Still not sure where I want to put it. Those items shouldn't be too bad but if this project has taught me anything, initial plans are apt to change quickly...

The build continues. I've made some decent progress over the last few weeks and if all continues to go well, it shouldn't be long until I can fire this thing up for the first time!

Recently completed items:

-Transaxle with reinforcement plate is back in and leaks have been fixed
-Hydroboost/power steering is completely plumbed
-Power steering cooler mounted
-Rebuilt calipers are installed and brakes are bled
-Clutch is bled
-Throttle cable installed
-Remote oil filter mounted and plumbed
-Turbo radiator support installed
-Radiator & fans installed and plumbed
-Steam vent tapped into water pump
-Oil catch can installed and PCV system plumbed
-Spark plugs and wires installed
-Fuel rail plumbed to hard line
-Hood trimmed for throttle body clearance
-LS wiring harness stripped and thinned

On the agenda:

-Test fit harness then wrap with new loom
-Interconnections between LS and 944 (fans, fuel pump, tach, VSS, CEL, starter, etc)
-Mount PCM, relays, and fuse block
-Batttery, starter, and alternator wiring
-Finalize air intake

Further down the road:

-Fab exhaust
-Install wideband
-Base tune

I tried fitting a full 4" air intake but after installing the hood I realized it wasn't going to fit since I'm keeping the hood latch and headlight bar. I've ordered the same parts but this time around everything will be 3.5". It'll still be tight but I think it'll fit.

Well, first startup was last night and...it's alive! Couldn't believe how quickly it fired up on the first crank. Disregard the weird tick/firing noise, ended up having my camshaft position sensor connector wires swapped and now it sounds absolutely perfect. Oil pressure looked really good too, between 3 and 4 bar.

Next it's on to fabricating the exhaust and getting my wideband and o2 sensors in. Almost too bad that I have to put exhaust on it, the sound of these engines with a cam and open headers is intoxicating!

Exhaust time! Towed it to my fabricator over the weekend and he started on it yesterday. He's thinking he'll be done tonight and ready for me to pick it up. Then it's tuning time!

Sweet, nice and simple. I had to ditch that little cross brace for space for my y-pipe as well. Mine's very similar and has held up well. Tune will be on a chassis dyno? Good luck!

Thanks Rich. Drove it home last night and it sounded great. Nice and quiet while cruising around but once you get on it, it comes to life. Exactly what I was going for.

Further back in this thread I was having issues getting the cross-member and engine in place to where I could bolt it up. You mentioned things getting in a bind/out of alignment and causing vibrations. On my drive home I had some pretty bad vibrations that directly increased with rpm. I was too busy watching everything else I forgot to test if it did it with the clutch in or not.

What were your vibrations like?

Glad you like the exhaust. I suggest you get under there and make sure none of it is touching the floor of the car. That can cause intermittent vibrations as it expands with heat. And I do still suggest loosening and re-tightening all the motor mount and adapter plate fasteners to make sure everything is situated happily now that you've driven it some.

The latter is what improved my vibrations issues. It wasn't bad, but if you put your hand on the roll cage at idle you could feel that the whole car was shaking. Made kind of an unpleasant, constant VRRR... inside the car. After a couple warm-up, loosen and re-tighten cycles it was much better.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the input Rich. Did my first round of street logging and tuning today, wow...this thing is quick!

I tested with the clutch in/out and the vibrations persist with the driveline disconnected. Really hoping it's not pressure plate or flywheel related considering how closely it follows the RPM. Also wondering if I'm just not used to such solid motor mounts?

The exhaust is a good idea and I'll be sure to check for contact when I'm under it tomorrow but it looked pretty good when I inspected it on the lift. Did notice my oil pan might be touching my power steering rack ever so slightly. Need to fix that ASAP.

Hopefully I'll have some good news to report back tomorrow. I hate hate hate vibrations!
