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 …

Good find

I am trying to choose a motor. I want all aluminum but some of those with iron block and aluminum heads make more power than the L33 I was planning. That just makes the decision that much more difficult.

Ive been looking at similar issues but I want something that will rev easily/ aluminum block/almost off the shelf parts.

I was almost set on the l33 when I saw the 4.8 lr4 (shorter stroke). Unfortunately its an iron block. Then I was thinking that I could swap a lr4 crank into a l33 and have an alum block and heads thats is rev easy. Still not sure it would work/compression ratio etc.

POAC

Post  xschop on Wed Dec 02, 2009 8:44 pm

If you don't plan on running AC, You should really consider the Iron Block. Just the AC crap and the windshield washer delete with an Odyssey lightweight battery and you are getting very close to 50/50 weight again. With Eric's glass front bumper (bye-bye to another 30 lbs) on my NA. I won't even bother messing with a glass hood. It's all good in tha hood.
What really cracks me up is when people tout the LS blocks and penny pinch every pound then turn around and install a factory flywheel that weighs a ton compared to the Fidanza wheel. That alone and you've shot yourself in the foot or stuck it in your mouth...LOL

I don't even think the 944's front bumper weighs 30lbs. It's fairly light.

the shocks alone are almost 10 lbs. Then the large rubber bumpers another 5, The alloy bumper is right about 15lbs. Turn signals?

I am definately running AC

Post  Arthropraxis on Thu Dec 03, 2009 8:30 pm

Are the aluminum blocks that much better for AC? I am fairly sure I am going to get a L33 (today), unless I can find a smokin deal on an LS.

I havent thought that far ahead-- but I am leaning toward not having the AC stuff on there....which is kinda nuts considering Im in the panhandle of Fla. But my idea is to get the car as light as possible which means different dash, seats, padding and carpet....etc.

The balance of the car is secondary for me as I want to run an engine that is rev happy not torque heavy.

Ive been researching swapping the LR4 crank into the L33 aluminum block. It seems that I would have to use the LR4 rods and pistons as well to maintain the compression ratio.

Does anyone know if Im barking up the wrong tree here?
