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 …

Radiator / Expansion Tank / Hoses

Post  Bluemach1 on Mon Mar 15, 2010 10:23 pm

I am trying to sort out what I need for using the 951 radiator.

1) Do I need to swap the 951 expansion tank with an N/A?
2) What hoses do I use? Can I use the GM F-Body or ????

I am seriously looking at this Radiator: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
and running the stock dual fans. What do you think?


Thanks for your thoughts on this.

If you've already got a 951 radiator, i'd say to stick with that until an upgrade becomes necessary. Mine's been working fine for 10k miles now...

That was my original plan but the one that is in there just started leaking along a seam.

The one from Wizard is expensive but it is two row and all aluminum. Should do a nice job.... Not sold yet but thinking about it...

Still need guidance on hoses and the expansion tank. Any throughts?

I don't remember on the hoses, but it's been discussed...

As for reservoir, i sold my Turbo one (they're worth more) and bought an N/A one in better condition, and still came out ahead Smile

Expansion tank

Post  fliermike45 on Tue Mar 16, 2010 1:09 pm

I see in a LS1 cooling schematic that one of the heater lines is plumbed though a T that is at the base of the expansion tank. Is this a regular T or does it have some fancy valving inside?

Mine is just a regular brass T, not sure how everyone else did theirs. It's really just a steam vent for the motor and the radiator. Once all the air is purged from the system it doesn't do a whole lot.

Do you have a NA car or Turbo? If you have an NA, get the lower radiator support from a turbo, makes for a factory look, worked perfectly for me, all the plactic bits bolted back up. There's been lots of discussions on multi-row versus single-row radiators. The LS engines seem to work just fine with the turbo radiator, which is single row. I'm using a Griffin all aluminum turbo replacement, not cheap, but about what a new stock turbo radiator costs, with the benefit of being all aluminum. Lots of cheaper options out there, with a little modification to make them fit.

What are the differences between the n/a and turbo rad?

The turbo radiatior is thicker, almost twice as thick and a little taller. The NA lower radiator bracket is flat, the turbo is U shaped, to accommodate for the difference in height.
