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).

Post  Vortec88Porsche on Wed Aug 07, 2019 11:58 am

So I am new here if my questions have been answered elsewhere. I already have the block at the machine shop get 30 over and surfaced, I'm unsure which heads I am going with yet but have a stage two cam, forged pistons, forged rods going for a 150 shot and later turbo. I also picked up a 2004 C5 transmission with 29k on it. I have cut the floor like others have said but am unsure if how far forward I need to cut? Also how to mount the transmission I have a picture of someone welding pipe between the frame and down to the trans which I am leaning towards just getting the pipe to the correct dimensions sounds like a PITA does anyone have dimensions of their brackets or other ideas? Lastly with the c5 trans and how the torque tube would raise the power-train I figure the TPC engine mounts wont work so what did you guys do? Hoping to find someone with a similar setup to pick their brain about it. Thanks

There's only been a couple people to have done this here. There's a lot a fab work involved, and I doubt anyone would record all there dimensions. The engine mounts should still work.

I just got the torque tube mounted up and with the length difference between it and the stock 944 torque tube how does that work does the motor have to be placed further back?

if you look at the location of the outputs compared to the front mounting surface of both the 944 transaxle and the corvette transaxle everything will make sense

5.3 in 1988 with C5 Trans Questions Empty Torsion Bar Housing

Post  Vortec88Porsche on Thu Oct 10, 2019 6:46 am

So I finally have a second motor I had in the shop in the car with the torque tube and trans mounted I will post pics later. Next I need to hoop the torsion bar housing and get coilovers for the rear. Can someone get me the length of the tbar from banana arm to banana car I already have it cut and didn't take that measurment?
