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 …

No apologies needed. All these LS pans are hydroformed/stamped steel from the same damn die somewhere. The various companies just reweld, add on, etc. It has the same ports as the Moroso and every other steel pan. Are those headers 1-off from Eric? Either way you're in good hands there.

More pics, exhaust is mocked up. Just need to get the X-joint in it, final welding on the exhaust done and pick some exhaust tips...

Looks fantastic! What size pipe is that? 2.5?

Just a suggestion, With my dual setup it was a good idea to make the rear length of exhaust removeable (from the torsionbar tube to the tip). Why? Well the stub axles will not come out on the drivers side nor will the tranny drop well. Mine is setup much like yours except the muffler is the Dynomax welded dual 2.5 to single 3". Yours looks like the welded X Dynomax dual in dual out.

That's a good idea. Muffler is a dual inlet/outlet magnaflow...

definitely needs a removable rear end section. My single 3" doesnt have one except for where the headers bolt to the pipe and its a big heavy beast to move around, not to mention having to unhook the 02 sensors.

After the final weld up it'll get cut and 2 band clamps installed right before the torque tube. To much of a PITA to do it while I mock everything in place. Much easier to cut it after the fact. I'll need to do it anyway because we have to install the trans reinforcement plate.

Excellent idea Tim!! I havent got to that part yet but have had to drop the exhaust to get to the tranny with the LT.....never thought of that though. Guru point!

I was going to put a removable section on my exhaust, but it's so easy to drop the whole exhaust that there isn't much point! It's definitely worth it on a car where the exhaust goes over the axle, but on these cars it only takes a minute to drop the exhaust..

Well, the cam, valve springs, pushrods and timing chain arrived today. Finally!

The motor can go into the car permenantly now. Still waiting on the headers to get back from coating/final welding and the oil pan. Both are on their way, I was hoping they'd arrive today so Eric would have everything.

At least with the motor built and in the car the wiring harness can be done, brakes can be done, AC can be done, etc, etc...

Im not good with cam #s. What kind of power band and range are you looking at with that one?

I am trying to figure out a cam for my setup.

1700-6400rpm. This will probably put me around 385-390rwhp.

I was thinking of trying to get a 2000-7000 cam or 1800-6800. Mainly for highway driving, it will still be able to drive on regular streets too, just more power for the top end.

Update! Motor is put together and should be going in the car soon. Pics below! I went with a double roller timing chain while the engine was out too. Oil pan is finally here as well...

cfgioja - First of all, i really wouldn't spin a v8 up that high, but that's just me. You're just asking to have a rod hanging off the side of the block, and you'll need some really good cylinder heads to boot. Larger displacement engines just don't rev like the little 4-bangers (and they don't have to!).

A double roller timing chain is like two chains side-by-side (even though it's one chain). It decreases the chances of the chain jumping, and has much greater strength than a single roller.

I see what you are saying about the chain now.

As far as the rpm range. I dont plan on running at 7k all the time just have the ability to reach it if needed. I have ls6 intake, ls6 heads with double springs, short lifters for high rpm, hi tech push rods, 1.72 aluminum rockers, forged pistons, h beam rods, and high lift cam.

If you make power up to 7K no reason not to spin these motors that high. Guys do it all the time. Only thing to watch out for is early rod bolts.

Keep in mind with the double roller setups, you may have to clearance your front timing cover to get it on. A lot of people feel the double roller is unnecessary as the LS2 timing set is much stronger than the original LS1 setup, guys are using the LS2 set for big power motors without failure.
