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 …

Looks great! A few questions....

How far did the rack mounts/rack drop?

Is this dimension different on a LSx specific x-member?

What changes between LT and LS x-member?

How much? Ballpark? PM please.

and completely unrelated but interesting:
Earlier you said something about bolting up a Camaro rear end in yours...I thought you had/have a Viper rear? Post I missed somewhere?

I dropped the rack about an inch, that is the reason for the bump steer kit. I'll PM you about the differences.

Yes I did have a Viper rear end, I trashed the CV's so I'm done with that! Evil or Very Mad

I have now built and fitted a 2002 Camaro rear end, It has 3:42 gears, a limited slip and large rear disk brakes.Haven't measured the disk yet. I have made it a complete bolt in setup and should have it complete by the end of next week.

This is the kind of set-up I plan to use if my transaxle doesn't hold up.

I strongly considered the Jag rear end, But like I said. I have all ready broken Cv's ,I know the Jag has u joint, and I just didn't want any more problems. Not taking any chances.....

question....

If you have a cut oil pan (like me) but still need to get the engine lower (for hood clearance) but don't want to drop the crossmember, will this accomplish this? is it possible to make the new crossmember with slightly lowered motor mount uprights? or could you assemble everything except the motor mount uprights so that they can be placed at the optimum height for people like me? Cool

thanks!

Tubular Cross member

Post  porschyn on Sun Feb 14, 2010 7:52 pm

This is a very interesting development. Changing my direction completely from previous approach. Thank you for developing this cross member.

Just few questions: Do I need a custom header still with this setup? Will I be able to use a header setup without any mod? If possible, do anyone have the part numbers for the header?

Ethan,
The cross member puts the motor in the happy spot so the hood clears and you can use a stock, unmodified oil pan. They won't be sold unless they are a complete setup. I will sell the bump steer kit separate for you guys that have lowered your stock cross member and need a little fix'n in the steering department.

right, i knew that was the idea...but you should see the clearance issues i have...they're a lot greater than you'd expect...when i measured the amount of space i needed from the fender lines (by laying a piece of wood across the engine bay resting on the top edges of the fenders) the boards showed i needed 2-3 extra inches....of course some of that will be taken up by the curve of the hood...but do you really think that the kit will give me that much extra room (have you seen the box i had to build to temporarily house the engine so i could close the hood?)

Don't get me wrong, i'm not trying to prove you wrong on this...i just have a feeling that i might have an issue with hood clearance even with your kit...i would love to be proven wrong though, so maybe i'll just have to buy one this summer!!!

You have to remember no mater what, with the old style up right you have to space the cross member down as much as 1" with the LT1. That is why I built this cross member. I hated having to space down the cross member. There were just to many pieces that you have to have just to bolt in a motor. Now, no spacer, no bulky cross member, and no separate uprights. Just 4 cross member bolts and you are ready for you motor! I built the cross member with the motor sitting in the proper spot for hood clearance and pan clearance.

Will do, I am working on the production jig this week, so they'll be ready to sell in about 2 weeks. I have the bump steer parts on their way and should have everything ready soon.

Post  samsdad on Mon Mar 01, 2010 11:10 pm

Put my name in for a possible purchase. Any idea how much? I'm on a really tight budget but I think I can make an exception for the cross member.

My car is getting a 5.3 ls truck motor. I am pulling the Porsche motor this weekend. The sooner I can make a decision about the motor mounts the better. I need to have the engine sitting in the car within a couple of weeks.
