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 …

thats what im looking for is major air flow but to also do away with stock bumper and to give it a smoother look then i can start bodywork so i can paint factory front bumper is a major air restriction.once i get this airflow issue resolved then i can move on to brake systym upgrade with dual master setup from xshop

I am pretty sure that it is just for 951. I have a question into them about it now regarding something else but I'll ask if it works for both. I believe it should.

You could use the 924 Carrera GTS nose.

The curve of the 951 Valance is different than the 944 NA model.

You can, several vendors out there, the nose panel from the 924 turbo like in V8Carerragts fits the NA, I have one that will go on mine, eventually. Most likely will change the front nose/spoiler too, after MD inspection, we only have to go through that once in the entire time you own the car.

thanks everyone for all your input and suggestions ive been scouring the web looking at several different options .ive found out when doin the v8 conversion the cooling systym and the way the 944 gets airflow to the radiator and the way it gets it out have been one of the most important considerations in doing the conversion.as we all know heat is one of the biggest downfalls of any vehicle when making performance enhancing upgrades.you have to make it run efficiently before it is dependable enough for any type of use.whether racing or street duty.i have my 944 almost dialed in and was wanting to make it look as good as possible when i get ready to paint while taking in consideration on fuctionality of the cooling systym.it has been about a 10 year experiment with my 944 on what works and what doesnt.and im still learning lol

I went with an EVO II replacement nose and fabbed custom headlights and ditched the buckets, the motors and linkage. You can see it at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Let me know if you need details.

You know its funny I was just looking at your website today. I had already wanted to do the same as yourself regarding the front valance/headlight panel. Id like to do a headlight delete and run HID's in the factory foglight holes. A freind of mine kinda talked me out of it saying he's seen where some guy had the same front valance with the hole cut on the middle and once he got up to speed on track it just ripped right off. My buddy has also broken several fog light lenses and warned about this too.
So heres my question what have you done (if anything) to reinforce the front valance? Is your air filter behind/inside it? Also do you like your headlight setup? regrets? anything you'd do different? It looks like your car is mostly a track car?? I do plan to track mine quite a bit but it will spend more time driving on the street, will it all hold up ok up there? I was considering doing headlight buckets but id MUCH rather do something like yours...input please.
BTW, nice vids & nice car ya got there. Im off to the garage now, im motivated! haha

New Nose

Post  fliermike45 on Fri Nov 11, 2011 7:32 pm

Here are some pics of my new nose, I had to get rid of that ugly front bumper.

Behind the nose is a TPC crossmember brace that bolts to the original shock mounts and braces the frame rails after I removed the sheet metal unit.

The Header panel is a steel panel I found on Ebay, someone did a nice job cutting out the slot. The lower nose panel is from IFC Racing, the headlight buckets are also from TPC. Expanded mesh powder coated black fits behind the panels. Aviation SCAT hose will hook up to the cooling vents and be directed at the brake assemblies.
