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 …

102mm FAST intake...can it fit.

102mm FAST intake...can it fit.

Post  bp944 on Mon Jul 19, 2010 2:04 pm

I just bought a 102mm FAST setup for a really good deal ($950 for TB, intake, and fuel rails) and its all brand new. How can I make this fit? Is it possible to lower the engine with a manual steering rack? Do I just go with a different hood? I was also wondering about doing a ram intake with a gt hood scoop from lindsay racing would that actually work?

.....I think I may have reached quota for post for the week. Sorry.

I guess my first question is, what are your horsepower goals? The stock '01-02 stuff can support ~450 wheel horsepower, are you planning to go above that?

As far as making it fit, i can't say. I can say that you won't be able to get the motor any lower without hitting the rack & pinion, so you'll have to use thicker spacers between the frame and the crossmember to get the extra clearance (which causes its own headaches, like bump-steer and suspension stuff). In front of the motor you'll definitely need to ditch the hood latch (because you'll want a 4" elbow) and probably the headlight stuff too.

Edit: and holy crap, you got the 102mm! I was just thinking 90mm for all of this.
I think that will seriously kill your low-rpm power unless you're running big cubic inches or forced induction (like 7.0L+ and 600+hp). Personally i would just re-sell and put the profit towards something like a nice set of cylinder heads.

I know its not the part I should be really buying but it was a really good deal and my car doesn't look like its going to be built due to a bunch of delays cuz I got scammed off a block. So...I'm just going to build a serious engine. So far it looks like I'll be running 383 stroker with solid roller cam (a quite mild cam), solid lifters, J2K shaft rockers, and 59cc patriot heads. I like the idea of over-engineering an engine hence the mild cam. I keep on running across really good deals on parts that are way above what I need, poor me. This recession seems to be treating me quite well
Is there a simple fix for the 102mm? Is there a fiberglass hood that will fit instead? I just saw the 102 was the same price as the I thought what the hell, why not. It will also run brilliantly in the really high rpms since the sky's just about the limit with those J2K rockers.
So 450rwhp is the magic number for problems? I'm going to be getting near to 500hp but I'm wondering about getting a cam that produces a really flat curve. Does the AOR transmission has trouble at 450? Is there anyway to get it slightly beefier. I might just have to downgrade because I'm not going to be able to resist opening it up at some point.
