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 …

just curious, on the manual brake setup. How much of a difference does using the wilwood master have on the performance of the brakes compared to just running a stock master?

Im not sure. Havent run the car yet to see. But, to guess, I would assume I would not feel any difference. Theres just not enough difference between the two MC's to really get a solid "wow" from my foot. Laughing Im running 993TT w/CD rotors and coolers up front and 944 turbos in the rear and with the stock MC, it was pretty good. We'll see!

FIRST START!

Post  944-LT1 on Sat Oct 02, 2010 2:54 pm

Heres my first start. I cant believe how easy modifying the LS3 wiring harnesses is! Everything works great.

Had the computer tuned by Steve at TunedbyFrost.com. I have to say....He's the best/fastest out there!

thought it would be cool to run it with flames shooting out the side. It looks great though. I wont have mine that clean when I am done. I am just trying to get the engine in there and get it running for now.

trouble shooting an electrical short circuit

Post  944convert on Sun Oct 03, 2010 7:53 am

Darned German wiring!!

If you have a short circuit that keeps popping a fuse, find someway to replace the blown fuse with a spare 12v bulb.

The bulb will light up whenever power is applied until the short is located and removed.

It will save a lot of fuses and should keep you from melting any wiring.

LS3

Post  kevin924kevin on Thu Mar 24, 2011 6:29 pm

Hello 944LT1,The car looks GREAT. hows it coming? Just a little late info, i am going to put the LS3 in my 924. From everything i have read including the install manwell, the motor is stand alone if you bought the e-rod kit. This kit comes complete,( legal in all 50 states ) it should be 9 wire hook up. You remove your gas pedal and install a few screws to mount the new one. It tells you where the peddle must be located to function properly. The e-rod motor comes stock at 430hp, according to GM these motors are actually 10% stronger, so another 43hp. I am going with the LS3 and the stage two cam, from factory.( two years warranty) It starts at 480hp, so 10% more means 528hp at the motor.Add headers and a good tuning and you are around 550 plus. I have a freind with chevy 2 (nova) he has this motor in his car. After a few tweaks and nice pipes it dynoed at 557hp STOCK. One scary car,did i mention STOCK. Now in my case, car weighs 2650lb, not sure about the nova. These motors are power houses. In my opinion, you really dont need any more STOCK HP. What does you car weight? I look forward to seeing more photos of you car.

Everything is done. I made my own long tube headers......which is a difficult job to say the least. Laughing

I will post some pictures a bit later.

Sweet!.. what clutch did you end up choosing?

Also did you stick with the electronic throttle body? I think if i went with an LS3 i would personally go with a cable driven, was never a fan of the drive by wire on my friends M3, but maybe its gotten better.

Ive been talking to a buddy of mine getting ready to swap in an L92 and ive been thinking about these LS3 crate engines. I was looking at the hot cam version available which gives an extra 50bhp for like $300 extra. I was thinking 'man, that is a no brainer.. 480bhp/475ft-lbs'. But then it got me thinking if that was too much power.... i think 300whp with my stock 2.5L is fast enough, i cant even imagine ~400whp! All i can think about is having some serious traction issues!

Im using the LS7 clutch. Im also using the DBW pedal as well. It was too easy to hook up not to use it. I had the computer tuned by frost and with the midlength headers, he estimated 380-390 rwhp. I decided against the midlength headers and built longtube headers with 30" primaries and 3" by 3" collectors. I also am building a straight intake, running a Meziere electric water pump and am only running an alternator. So I think im going to be at the 400 rwhp range conservatively. I was thinking of a cam but will hold off to see if the car/me can handle it.

Right now Im working on the fuel system and interior. Cameras always need batteries and I never have any. Laughing

I took a Porsche disc to my clutch shop. They removed the rivets and clutch lining and replaced it with a Luk lining. I was going to use a disc like from the mopar one but the guy at the clutch shop said he could do it.

I think I paid him something around 180? Not sure because he also balanced my flywheel.

Well.....The wildwood MC developed a leak that's directly above the header and I'm scared of fire (remember expuppy?).

Anyway, hopefully in short time I can have it replaced and get a video!
