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 …

I can fishtail when dropping from 4th to 3rd. I'm sure you will get squirrely in that thing. The S2 tranny is an NA tranny with supposedly stronger R&P, but 1st gear is also useless but for a drive-thru at Sonic or Mickey D's.

Yep, the S2 trans is the same as the 951 S tranny with the hardened gears and shafts. It has an LSD, but doesn't have the tranny cooler. I'd like to add that, but finding the LSD drive gear is difficult and is NLA new...

make one.
If you can learn to feather the clutch in 2nd gear launch on the S2 tranny, it has an overall ratio of 7.98 as compared to the NA (8.29) so It is pushing it on the clutch shutter factor as the NA tranny 2nd ratio is borderline.

Ah, I'm not a machinist like you or Eric. Far beyond my skill and tool set to make one unfortunately.

i am waiting to see how your hydro boost goes together. I have the main hardware for it, just have to wait for the plate Eric is designing. He said he will get it setup after doing your car. So hopefully it goes well.

I like the bumper grills for the brake coolers. That is a nice touch, I am going to have to "borrow" that idea from you. What brake cooler setup are you running? i checked it out the other week when I came down but it was not put together completely.

Also I noticed you have a five point harness setup, How did you go about attaching the harness to the car? I couldnt see how it did with the carpet in the car.

Yeah, the grills are for the oil cooler and PS cooler. The ducts I had before Eric will reuse for the brake cooling plates.

Those are the Broadfoot plates, slide in behind the hub and replace the stock rotor splash guards.

I have 6 point harnesses installed, so they use a 2 point sub strap.

I have eyelets welded to the bottom of the floor pan underneath the seats, with reinforcement plates welded to the bottom of the car. Same thing for the inner lap belt mount.

ok I wasnt sure, I know some people jsut bolt their harness to the car, but I would rather weld it. I will have to get that done. I did like how you car was laid out though, I like the turbo door trim strips

Yep, a lot of people bolt them to the car using a fender washer. I'm just not comfortable with that, hence all the welding and reinforcement. All those areas are just single sided steel and are pretty weak.

That's also why my rollbar is welded to the structural areas of the car vs being a bolt in that mounts to the wheel wells/floor of the car...

More progress. Oil lines between the oil cooler, pan and filter relocation are done. Exhaust is completely done. You can also see the scoops used for the brake cooling ducts.

How does your cooler get air flow laying on its side like that? Also did you or eric make those brake ducts? those fiberglass pieces look good.

The air is forced through the cooler from the shrouded air inlet in the bumper. The air has to go through the oil cooler, it has no way around it!

Check out the pics on the previous page. They show the shrouding Eric made that forces the air coming in from the fog light holes through the oil cooler.

Those fiberglass ducts I had before. They were in the fog light holes, but weren't really ducting anything. Now they directly duct the brakes.

I hope I'll be able to hurt a lot of feelings on the track! Razz

Docwyte,

I see now, at first I was not sure what I was seeing. I never thought about removing the foglights and doing that. Man, you and Eric have a crazy project going. Makes me wish I had the money to have him build it for me.

He told me that you are going to run the hydro boost setup too. Are you goign to run a cooler different than the stock power steering cooler?

Who did your powersteering lines from the Turn One pump to the rack?

Also, did you get custom lines for the AC with the GM pressure switch?

Nice Eric.

Can you get a couple up close shots around the intake tubing going through the front cross brace? I would like to see what kind of modifications are needed to get it to work properly so I can have an idea of what I am doing.

Looks good, I can see what you said about all the hoses there. Thats with smog pump and all that, right?

If you were running no emissions, with a hydroboost, cruise control, heater and a/c would that clean up some of the wires alittle?
