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 …

Still pulling away like a freight train supercharged 944 LS1

Post  Michael B. on Fri Feb 16, 2018 3:14 pm

Hey gents. I want to step in here & say you guys keep at it. Any of you that are still tinkering, or on the fence about a 944 Hybrid ~ get out there & make it happen.

I am over 10 years now with mine - and its still what some call their favorite car that I have.

I have a lot of fun in this car, sneaking up on unsuspecting "fast" car owners and then playing with them like a cat-toy. You cant beat that feeling of debauchery you get. Go FINISH YOUR CAR (or make plans to start one).  It can be a lot of work, but its worth the efforts.

Do yourself a favor & join in the fun.

You know way back when a guy was selling those hoods. Nice clean bulge that gave me a start towards what I needed to fit the blower pulley. I cut it up & added more clearance then viola, my hood was born.

Better than good quality, excellent hinge & latch areas. Pretty solid fit too.

Vids? Hell yes, 10 years of 'em: What a Face

The real question... 10 years with a blown LS1, still on the same 951 gearbox?

Yes sir. Back in the day I rem-polished the internals, installed a Quaife with axles from a German tank (GKN racing axles). Its still in place - in one piece - and I use it as such. I just don't drive it like I hate it.

That's confidence inspiring! My LS3 has an NA transaxle still... Definitely needs a 951 transaxle soon.

Can you tell me the compression of your motor. How much boost are you pushing?

Stock 2002 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 LS1, which I believe is 10.0:1. I started with only 6lbs of boost and left it that way for years (road racing mainly). But then (years ago) I swapped the pulley to a smaller size & brought the boost up over 10PSI now (half-mile events mainly).

It does not seem to care. But again, I don't beat on it like a loon.

Thank you. From what I have read the concensus is max 13 psi. At that compression. They said for long term running with great reliability stay at 8 to 10 a's a good safe area. This info is from varoius magazine tests that i read on line about boosting a LS 3 .Did you notice a big difference when you uped the boost to 10

A 951 transaxle can be ruined with far less HP. I let a friend drive my car an he spun third gear on the pinion shaft. My car has around 350 RWTQ much less than Michael B's. He was sidestepping the clutch and shifting very aggressively. So, don't drive like an idiot an the transaxle will be fine.

The car Dynoed at 550 prior to the small pulley, I may have added fifty more with the change. It nearly overwhelms the chassis at 400 honestly (sideways at any speed right?), so anything up there over 500 is just for giggles. It was a bunch of power before the small pulley, an it is just more bunches after.

Its noticeable to me sure, but anyone else would say its just more sideways.

Can I have a Amen!

I have had pals drive my stuff and beat on my cars thinking they are "the man." I don't let that happen anymore.

I now say to them "Hey, driving this car at 75% is more car than you have ever had before, you don't need to get every little bit out of it." 75% of it is plenty 'ya know? Its that or I keep 'em out of it.

Oh absolutely, it's amazing how being off by a couple hundred RPM and dropping the clutch can add more than a couple hundred ft-lbs of inertia torque!
