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 …

Hey guys, i've got an 87 944 NA, with an auto, anyone know the HP rating on these things? would hate to rebuild it with stock parts instead of upgrading just to find out it wont hold the power. thanks in advance.

the 087 transmission isnt very strong. its used in vw vans, audis and of coarse the 944. as far as i can find, the most power put through these things was in the 944 n/a, so in theory you have the strongest factory unit already. apparently the audi 5000 turbo could have had an automatic, but from what i read it ran less boost than a manual, so id assume its no better than what you have.

i have been through an 087 from a vw van many years ago, and from what i remember of it, a v8 is going to obliterate it.

if you want to run an automatic you have a couple options, a 928 trans and torque tube, a corvette trans and torque tube, or cut the tunnel out and run a trans bolted to the engine and put a diff in the back.

Thank you for the info! so a 928 Auto is essentially a Direct swap, as long as i have the torque tube, but are the splines the same? i have a clutch in mine based on the splines of the 944 in order to keep the torque tube turning, would i need a different clutch to act as my adapter? this might make it easier if its the same as my 944 torque tube needs bearings. performance parts for the 928 trans? Im sure the stuff is expensive. if its too expensive i may be better off finding a C5 trans, but i figure that will be alot more work than what i planned, Hate to swap the hubs and all, but I would if i had to.

After Brief Research, the only viable swap isnt a 928, but a 968. The C5 Trans swap interests me more though, i will see what i can come up with, id personally rather have the C5 cause i know a 4l60 can take the power of an ls1.

the 928 trans or the corvette setup isnt easy by any means, its a lot of fab work that needs to be done to the car. have a look in the 924 section of this forum, a member is building one with a corvette drivetrain, itll give you a sense of how much work is needed.

if i was going with the corvette trans i wouldnt be going with a 4l60e, id go for a 6l80. the 4l60e will hold the power alright, but the large ratio spread makes it a little undesirable. if you are beating on it lots it will eventually fail, they arent the strongest trans out there. the 6l80 in the flip side has much better gear ratio spread, and is much stronger.

the 968 setup would be closer to a bolt in affair, and it will be stronger, but i doubt its gonna last. its also going to get interesting trying to control it, to my knowledge its fully electronic trans and would require the 968's trans controller, and that will somehow have to interface with the gm ecm to provide engine data to it for everything to work properly. this is going to turn into an electronics nightmare.

so one option is simpler mechanically, but heavy on electronics while the other is a ton of fab work but computer wise basicly plug and play.

Understood, I will weigh my options, much appriciated.
