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 …

Passenger footwell

Post  Plucky948 on Mon Dec 03, 2018 9:56 am

Looking for pics or ideas on how folks have mounted the GM ecu and fuse box in the passenger footwell. Right now I have a wood board with ecu and fuse box drilled into it. Has anyone reuswed the factory metal motronic klr dme frame to fit the GM ecu underneath? I was thinking of placing it exactly where motronics were but the connectors seem to be too deep. Has anyone shimmed the metal mount bracket and placed the fuse box in top right of passenger footwell to get Max space? I did not want to lose the glove box for fuse box space.

Thanks

Plucky - Assuming you are doing a 85.1 and older vehicle? I too tried in a 85.1 and older vehicle. The first issue I had was fishing the red/blue connectors through the firewall hole (PITA). Once I got it on the other side, the ECU was much larger than I expected. I did leave it on the floor for a bit unsecured (not a great Idea - agree)

I even made some aluminum brackets to try and hang it, no success. There was no room and it hung down to low. Just a quick note: GM performance makes a bracket: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I finally mounted mine over by the battery. Not the best location, but it worked. I notched a hole where the firewall seals to the hood for wiring. Also, I ended up using a EFI Source Megasquirt system (originally had GM box, and it too was located in same place.).

I am looking to relocate my battery to the rear eventually. When I do, I will probably move the ECU again, but no energy or funds at this time.

Take some pictures for your final solution, I noticed the older 944's do not have as many "How to's as new ones.

Vehicle is an 86 turbo. Right now the only thing between a passenger foot and ecu is a piece of carpet, the ecu, and a wood board under it. Just wanted to see if the ecu and connectors actually fit under old bracket before taking the wood board out. It's a temporary solution, this is the phase of tucking in everything that is a "why was that a good idea again"? Lol.

Thanks, so it does fit. I guess most put the fusebox in glove box or engine compartment. I might try putting it in top right of passenger footwell.

ECU and Fusebox for LS3 in Footwell of 86 944 Turbo

Post  Porsche951toLS3 Yesterday at 1:41 pm

I too have an 86 944 Turbo, now with an LS3.  I put the ECU BEHIND the metal and wood of the footwell with the board over it all and it fits just right.  You have to work with it, but it will work.  There are a couple of sharp metal areas down there which I put a cut piece of rubber hose to protect any wiring near it.  The leftover fuse box solution for me was to remove the unused porsche altitude sensor (picture attached) located in the footwell up and to the right.  Remove it and you can now PUSH the fuse box right up there where the sensor was and it will hold nicely pressure fitted and out of the way.  You cant see it unless you put your head down there.  It also allows you to have easy access if you need to check fuses.  Please note my sexy legs in the picture with shorts during Tucson winters.
