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 …

Well, my stock turbo motor miserably failed a leakdown test today

Post  docwyte on Thu Jul 29, 2010 12:17 am

10%, 20%, 30%, 10% blow by coming out the dipstick tube. So something in the block isn't happy.

Looks like an LS1 may be happening very soon.

My goals are working stock cruise control, A/C, hydro boosted brakes, 360-365rwhp out of the LS1.

I currently have a wideband A/F, oil temp gauge and factory voltmeter, oil pressure gauges. I'll be removing my boost gauge and replacing it with what? Fuel pressure gauge? Water temp gauge?

What are the costs involved in getting this swap done, excluding motor costs?

If your looking for a turn key solution I know RH was in the 15k range that was a few years back when I toured the shop. When I went to Texas performance his price was quoted for the amount of work done ,and wow you will get your money worth. (the quote price was for a friend who backed out to buy a M3 his 944 is still sittin) If you were to do it yourself the price depends on your setup. I personally have 2200 in my setup, but its a lt1 and I did alot of trading and swapping to get there. I'm hoping to have mine finished before fall, I still have clutch master,brakes,cooling system,and some small wiring left to go.

Yeah, I just don't have that much free time to work on the car, between family, running my business and my military obligations....

I'm interested in doing it myself, but I really haven't been able to enjoy this car since I bought it 5-6 months ago. I want to drive it, not have to try to finish it myself and not be able to enjoy it for at least another 6 months.
