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 …

Yep, Custom chop saw and DOM pipe with the old welder! geek

I made them myself, I have built many driver shafts and other drive line parts that are still holding up after many years of hard abuse. I chose the Viper rear end because it was cheap. I was looking for a vette rear end and someone suggested that I leave them for the vette guys as they were hard to come by sometimes, so I located a brand new unit with the ring gear up grades for $325.00 and it was local.
No I did not ask where it came from!

There is a 87 turbo with a ls1 on C/L in LA area. He's looking for 14.5K. The price has come down from 15k. It has been on there for quite a while. There dosent seem to be a big demand to purchase one of these. I have considered buying this car but would miss out on the fun, excitement, blood, sweat, and tears it would take to build it. But I would like to know what the average cost of building one would be. I have an 83 NA but would go the turbo route from all that I have read. Thanks.

I have 12k (Thats for the conversion the upgrades amount to another $5000 +-) into mine and thats including the car, however my car was an 83. A turbo car and LS motor demand a premium,(probably going to cost you 15-20k and the pleasure of dealing with the Cali Smog beurocrazy) that car is a good deal for all the work done. Yes, I have also seen the craigslist add.

BTW, if it's not raining, there is a Porsche meet (sorta) at a place called EASY in Emeryville on the 3rd Sat of this month (not this Saturday but next) and I will be there with my 944. There are not that many 944's that show up (usually 2-3).

I have about $15k into mine, including purchase and all the stuff i sold off it. The Turbo cars do have a higher initial cost, but the motor stuff sells at a premium so you can probably negate most of the differences...

As with most custom cars, i wouldn't expect to be able to sell it for anywhere near what i have into it. It's a money pit Smile

The thing im worried about is im based in the UK so might struggle to do a lot of people are doing with the traction issue. I can get the LS2 engine no problem and can get someone to fit it but need to know what / where to get other parts and how to deal with the traction issue as easily as possible.

With sticky tires and the v8, revving up and dumping the clutch to get a good 0-60 time in this car, i would expect either my CV axles to snap or the transmission to explode.

These cars make great autocross and roadracing cars, and mine is a great daily driver on top of that, but IMO if you're looking for 0-60/0-100-0/ or a quarter mile car, you're probably looking in the wrong place.

If you want a car to drop an LS motor into that's cheap, RWD, and good for drag racing, i'd go for an RX-7 instead. You'll be able to run the T56 and whatever rear axle you want, and you can beat on it all day long....

I realize that the transaxle and CV's are the weak point of this car, but would this happen with a stock LS1 using a turbo transmission with the reinforcement plate? If so, how easy do you have to go on these things? Sounds like most of you are talking seriously upgraded motors, right? Very Happy
