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 …

Hello everyone,
I would like to first introduce myself. My name is Carl, i've been lurking around here for a short time and i must say, this community has a wealth of knowledge.
I have an 86 944t that i restored. I got it as a retirement present from the wife in hopes that i would stay busy and out of trouble.....Busy i was for 1-1/2 years in working diligently in getting this car up and running to be my Daily driver.
The car started of as white with numerous body fillers, blown head gasket, leaking fluids from all components, no A/C, no heat, no lights working, dry rotted interior, messed up shifter, bad drive shafts, unserviceable clutch, worn brakes.....OMG it truly was a project. So busy....I was, until YOU guys came along...now I'm in trouble...LS SWAP!!really? well it was son's fault for planting the seed.....
this is the before and after restoration.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I picked a complete running engine for the swap
04 Pontiac GTO $800.00, I had a deal because i helped pull it out. It came with LS6 intake already (oh yeah!!, i heard this is good?)
replaced the 241 heads with 243s for $400.00 (valves came with it and bolts)
replaced cam with torquer v2 kit. (springs, seals, pushrods) apprx $700 for the kit
went and replaced timing chain with an ls2 chain and added a chain dampener $150
installed HV oil pump (cant remember the price)
replaced cam shaft bearings, rod bearings and main bearing and piston rings apprx $150
ARP connecting rod bolts
Oil pan from TPC
replaced lifter with ls7 lifters and trays $120
head gasket, water pump gasket, timing cover and rear cover gaskets and seals, oil pan gasket[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

86 Porsche 944T LS1 swap begins Empty maybe getting ahead of myself

Hello again everyone,
i have the original wiring harness and pc for the car along with the fuse box and vats module.
i will be rebuilding the harness myself (cleaning it up a bit)
I would like to send of the computer to be programmed and checked.
is there a list somewhere what all needs to be done for the conversion programming?
I would like to run A/C and two speed fan so far....
do i need specifics on what i've done to the engine so it can have a base tune?
do i just plug and play and have the dyno shop program on the fly?
will it run without any programming enough to drive to the shop?
thanks everyone

Car looks great! Send the GM ECU off to this guy for a "mail order tune".

It's not as good as a full dyno tune, but will allow you to drive the car and work the bugs out until it's "dyno time"!

86 Porsche 944T LS1 swap begins Empty harness problem

Post  smkn951 on Thu Sep 26, 2019 7:28 pm

looking at the wiring harness......it is toally different from what is described on LT1Swap site. theres a body control module connected to it... the starter wires are on a different harness...it's just a total mess. i want to keep the a/c, 2 speed fan...but its on the bcm harness. can this be put in the ecm? theres a VSS low/ high signal on green connector pins 20/ 21, do i need these 2? theres also a VSS signal pin 50. is this the only one needed?i'm so confused...any words of advise and routes to take are greatly appreciated.
thanks

It is a lot to go thru. I am in the middle of my swap as well. This is what I have learned and please anyone correct me if I'm wrong. Pins 20/21 go to the vss(vehicle speed sensor) which is an option to add. Some dont use it, but I think most do. It is a sensor on the axle in the back of the car. It can b sourced out or u can buy a kit from tpc or renegade. The single pin 50 is for a digital speedometer. U will have to tap into the cars working for a couple wires. The key hot, the starter, and the fuel pump. If u look at the wiki manual it goes thru a lot of this stuff. Hope this helps
