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 …

or, this should cool....
I found a Griffin radiator that is being used by the 1/4 guys. the fit is excellent in the stock location and the rad is all aluminum with the inlet and outlet on the correct sides for the LSx conversion.

I think you'll find the price very competitive with a stock (plastic) turbo unit. This one is also 3" thick and fits without cutting anything.

Where would the expansion tank go though? (or how would you plumb back to it in its original location?)

The one I selected has a threaded port on the driver's side top corner. It is small but should serve as a connection for the stock expansion tank.

Why is the one without the filler neck so much more expensive????

The one without the filler neck is a different style. The one w/o filler neck is a cross-flow whereas the other is a scirroco style. Also, the w/o filler has 1-1/2" tubes whereas the other is only 1". Thats all I see as to why one is more expensive other than that demand may be lower for the w/o filler neck model.

But probably the tube size is what makes the other so much more expensive. (??)

As a contrast, another model of griffin's is one with 1-1/4" tubes and 2.5" thick and is 530 dollars! So im not so sure.

clearing up a few things...

Post  968gene on Mon Dec 07, 2009 9:57 am

I spoke to Griffin and they agreed the radiator I have will more than do the job. Mine is also a Scirocco style. I had to trim the retaining tabs (bottom, both sides) about 0.5". I am using rubber isolators to bolt the rad down and I have a 1.5x1/8" aluminum strap and a teflon spacer to hold the top in place. This is a "plug and play" as an all aluminum radiator can get for the money.

Here is what we did on mine.

Moved the radiator forward 4 inches. Did this by replacing the cross member with the one Eric builds. Cleaned up the area under the hood nose. removed the filler cap and constructed a remote filler. Built a frame to hold the radiator. From the pics you can see how much room we were able to get for the fans and such.

To create the space we got rid of the hood latch and went with hood pins. Here some pics of what we did. We were able to use the following radiator from Summit. $159.
Part Number: SUM-380645
Radiator Style: Crossflow
Overall Width (in): 23.875 in.
Overall Height (in): 16.000 in.
Overall Thickness (in): 1.750 in.
Row Quantity: Single-row
Radiator Finish: Natural
Radiator Material: Aluminum
Transmission Cooler: No
Inlet Location: Upper driver side
Inlet Size: 1 3/4 in.
Outlet Location: Lower passenger side
Outlet Size: 1 3/4 in.
Core Height (in): 16.000 in.
Core Width (in): 20.750 in.

Do you still have a high point for the air to bleed into?... after the initial fill and during the life of the fill the entrained air needs to be bled out.
