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 …

One more here.

Being one of the "first" inverstors (more than a year ago) on the C5 adapter plate project I know I should rant but I know he is on a dificult place right now. I believe he had his best intentions at heart and simply things went wrong for him. We all take chances in this board by sending money or parts to other members all the time.

I do hope things turn around for him, everyone gets their promised parts, greg gets his reputation
restored and I get my investment returned.

When I ordered my parts from Greg, he was great and delivered them to me about a month after ordering them (that was back in may).

We all have respect for Gregg and to what he contributed to this community. From his manual to his hard parts, a lot of those guys (Admin, xschop) had made it easier for us to do this swap and give us an alternative to RH. But, at what point do we draw the line?

Our/My parts were ordered waaay before his comming out of financial issues. Solid promisses were made to when it would be delivered. Thousands of dollars of parts have been collecting dust for months. Now, I and others are having to shell out $$$ for parts they already paid for once before. Making us do drastic measures.

Like I said before, he now has my money and my engine harnesses, I would like my harnesses back. There is no excuse in the world on why he could not send it back to me....and send xschop's harness as well for that matter.

After reading this I don't think I will be ordering anything from him. He's not the only casualty of the Credit crunch. His book would have been useful too. Any chance to get the broken pdf links fixed on here?

I to am owed parts, he did supply the bulk of my initial order but the pax side engine mount does not fit with an a/c compressor.
He promised to fix this.
He also owes me a transmission stiffner plate and rotor centering rings.
I'm held up without the mount.

I was in the same spot. I had to bite the bullet and install the motor with the other mount and remove the ac compressor. I was promised a replacement, and I even offered to pay for it so he doesnt have to "loose" money on the deal. That was 6 months ago.

Today, I mounted the master clutch cylinder and the brake master cylinder. What a PITA to get the studs out of the clutch cylinder and drill them out. I needed to dent the inner fender well to get the banjo fitting in, so its removable. That was the hardest part of the job. Still need to mount the push rod for the brake, but ill save it for next time.

What is the cleanest way to do the brake lines? any part numbers or special fittings?

Terminate it in the trash can, unless you are going back to your four banger. It was part of the evap system on the Porsche motor. The line that runs across the fire walls goes back to the tank as a vent line and the other side goes to the charcoal canister under the finder.

Am I right to assume you can just run a in pipe across that vacuum line section from the vent to the canister so the T joint is removed and your canister is hooked to your tank vent still?

So... Im starting a bulid, should I not order parts from Greg? I dont want to be waiting for things.

Post  zeusrotty on Mon Sep 20, 2010 12:38 am

Nor do I want my money out there without a definitive agreed upon time frame. And if not Greg, where do I go for parts? Also, Id like to buy a manual, but can I trust him to actually send me one if I pay for it?

Eric (admin) runs texas performance concepts. He has alot of the parts you need and he is pretty good about time frames. I have not had an issue yet from him. Then of course you can go a little more expensive and go Renegade brand. But I realized after doing that they out source alot of their products and you have to pay middle man fees for them.

Ill tell you this much, my order was placed in November of 09. I still have unfulfilled parts, I had to buy my own replacement parts. He has my 951 harness as well as my LS1 harness. I have made several requests for them to be returned. He has not. He has done ZERO since my posting and half a dozen members already came forward about their missing parts.

It is nice to have all the info in one place. All of the info you need is on this site or the Wiki. you could start an indexed book of relevant posts to create your own manual. I was doing just that before the manual was made.

Seems like it would be easier to just buy the book.

Besides everyone says its valuable information.

The part designs in the manual are wrong too, alot of them are missing information or just have the wrong measurements. The best thing is to do what they are saying and keep a log of pages to form the book, the conversion is pretty much straight forward, the biggest thing is getting the parts needed and the rest mostly falls into place.

Bash, bash, bash away...Tell ya what zeusrotty, I'll ship you one to review...If you think it's worth the money, pay for it. If not, burn it. PM your mailing address. I don't care what you guys think or say, because without my input, this "Romper Room" forum wouldn't be what it is today. Run it all in the ground boys. I really don't care anymore.

And yes, your Grandma is getting old...

wasnt bashing on you greg, just have problems with alot of the drawings. I have made attempts to get the right specs from you politely and had to go other places to get what I needed.

I understand that this thing wouldnt be anywhere close to what it is today without your input. In my experience with the manual I cant get parts made to the right specs unless I take my car to the machine shop and have them tinker with the specs until they fill in all the blanks.

Not trying to piss on your boots or anything. Your instructions are good and now days alot of them are on the sites themselves. The main reason I got the book was for the tech specs. Just trying to help a fellow converter from getting hung up in alot of technicalities and hopefully help his mod go smooth.
