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 …

Is that an aftermarket cam gear?
Double rollers don't stretch like singles either after long usage. Nice car Doc. Cool way to smogify some headers too. If you go dual exhaust, do you have to put dual cats?

My original chain that had almost 100k had NO noticeable stretch, that LS2 is MUCH heavier, I really doubt stretch is a concern with these chains, at least in all my reading I havent hear of any stretch issues. I actually had origonally purchased a double roller setup, and then purchased a LS2 setup and gave my roller setup to a friend.

We are using two high flow Magnaflow Spun Cats.
The LS2 chain is lighter than the double roller set up.

I was eating a sandwich and just left it in 2nd LOL. He started it too. And the 948 list of victims grows. Laughing

EDIT: sorry for getting off topic Doc. When you are up and running you'll kick yourself for not doing the swap long ago.

The LS2 timing chain is a good alternative to an aftermarket double roller...either way, the stock ls1 timing chain sucks, so upgrade it! Smile

cfgioja - As for spinning these motors to 7k...lots of people spin lots of motors really high, they just don't last long. Hondas can spin that high because their rotating assembly weighs half as much as yours. I would strongly suggest you get with a cam maker (Comp?) and tell them about your setup--they can get you steered in the right direction. The parts you have just aren't matched to a 7000 rpm engine, and i think you'll be disappointed if you try and make it into one. Hydraulic lifters don't like to go above 6500rpms...

I honestly have no idea what your talking about? Factory redline was 6700 on the 01 and later cars, here is a thread on the exact subject on ls1tech, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] these bottom ends are built strong There is no reason you can't spin them up.

Can you guy's go hijack another thread!
If you want to argue about a non relevant 7000rpms, please do it some where else. No one drives their car at 7000 rpms unless they miss a shift any way.

Not that i want to get into a pissing match with a Mod, but I thought that the point of this forum was free of commercial influence? Oh and beautiful work I am honestly envious of your job, and i am a Porsche tech, I hope to be doing similar in a few years, just need to build my shop...

Motor is permenantly installed in the bay. Most of the wiring is connected. Fuel hoses are done. Oil cooler and PS cooler are mounted, hydroboost brakes mounted.

Here are some pics of the progress so far. Today he's planning on plumbing the PS cooler, hydroboosted master cylinder, heater hoses, radiator hoses, AC lines, oil cooler and oil filter relocation, etc.

Looks Factory. Are you keeping the Cruise Control? Hood latch delete will get you a straight airflow as well. Great Work indeed.

Yep, keeping the cruise control.

Plans are to cut out the hood catch so there's room for a straight shot intake. Going to run hood pins instead...

My hood pin design is good for 150mph and cost about $20 altogether. reminds me I still need to get 1/2" x 3" length springs for the pins for hood lift assist.
So, hit 120mph on the track and set cruise? Razz

The car should be a monster when it's done. Will be tuned for 390rwhp, has a lightweight flywheel and I'm running the S2 tranny, so extremely short gearing for this motor.

I won't be surprised if I can rip the tires loose by hitting the gas in the middle of third gear...
