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 …

    Has anyone done a dry sump setup? I assume that takes a lot of modification? Due to a scam that I finally worked through the full car project is a no-go. So this summer will be a massive engine build and then next summer I'll start working on the car. I might as well build a pretty kick A$$ engine.

    I have done a dry sump both on the LT1 and LS2 in a 944 Chassis. Unless it is a full on race car it don’t make much since on the street. Major problem is finding room for the bits and pieces for the system. In a race car with a gutted interior pretty easy. Street car, its going to be a struggle. There is a factory dry sump for the Corvette's that if you could find all the do dads used that may be a little less impact to the ole pocketbook.

    For the sake of conversation you can figure around $4000 to $5000 in a dry sump system. Considering the cheap oil pumps like the Moroso's are in the $1100 range, just the pump, no drive system, no mounts, no plumbing.

    Don’t get me wrong a dry sump system defiantly shows some testicular fortitude when building, and definitely has the coolness factor. However unless you are a very contending racer I would think the money could be spent elsewhere in engine upgrades. But by all means if you got the fab skills go for it! Besides fitting a dry sump system in a space restricted platform will always help you invent new curse words!

    If i were going to spend that kind of cash for a dry sump, i think i'd just pick up an LS7 that comes stock with one. $5k dry sump + $3k engine = $8k you could have spent on an LS7 Smile

    5 grand......imagination time is over. That's more than the price of the build for my whole engine....by a LONG shot.

    If you've got a lot of time to kill but not a lot of money, learning to port the cylinder heads would be a good way to get some free horsepower (or lose some, depending on how much you learn!).
