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 …

Yes, A Viper rear end! Nothing else held up to the power. I broke a CV bearing cage the other day. May have to find something stronger! Shocked
I thought Hot Rod needed to know about us. I received the latest addition of hot rod mag and it has a 944 with a turbo V8 stuffed in it, Not under the hood though. Cool
They did not have much info on it though, so I started looking for more and found nothing, just a place to put my car!

944hybrids HOTROD post... Empty Arrgh .. lost last post??

Post  pseudosane on Sat Jul 17, 2010 10:56 pm

OK .... I started a previous reply and somehow it either got lost or was prematurely sent. So, at the risk of duplication I'll condense this.

7-5-10 bought '88 944 N/A.
Already have a stroked '94 LT1 95% complete from a Firebird. Aluminum heads mild ported. Hot bump stick. I also have a rebuilt 700R4 built for 600HP or was it ft-lbs .. can't recall off hand.

I've been reading the posts for LT1 conversions and have also ordered the conversion manual and now am impatiently awaiting it's arrival. Just a few minutes ago saw this post and have to ask some questions.

Would the stock trans be able to hold up to a stroked LT1? (I'm getting the impression it won't) Many have recommended the TT (turbo trans?) but all in reference to fairly stock LTXs. I potentially have the two main ingredients here ... engine and trans. But the knowledge of a .. well ... new born as far as Porsches are concerned, let alone conversions.

I would appreciate your insights as to the pros and cons of the use of the stroked LT1 and / or using the 700R4 or actually any other potential trans ... with the idea that simple really is better. Very Happy. Any other suggestions are welcomed too .. as long as they don't involve universal sign language. Wink

944hybrids HOTROD post... Empty Oh man .. how rude was I?

Post  pseudosane on Sun Jul 18, 2010 7:05 am

I just re-read my post and realized I never even intro'd myself ... sorry.

My name's Doug and I'm a mechanical designer. I'm interested in cars (obviously) ... guitars and women, etc .. though admittedly 'etc.' is usually pretty limited. Oh and they're not necessarily in that order. Wink

As noted in my initial post I have a '88 944. It has some deficiencies .. odometer not working, fuel gauge is inaccurate but moderately useable and the AC is extremely weak .. will be getting that looked at soon. But I'm really wanting to learn how to do it myself. It probably needs an R134 conversion but I've got to research that. The cruise control worked when I got it .. but kicked out recently and won't hold .. so I have that to look into as well.

I have no idea of the status of the timing belt and that concerns me ... kicking back and forth whether to replace the belt or stick it out a while and see what I find out about the conversion first. Depends on what's involved in replacing the belt. I suppose I could collect my conversion items and continue driving it until I kill it .. but that just doesn't sit well with me. Any suggestions on that?

OK .. I have other questions but I will strive to go back to the original posts that sparked them to discuss. I look forward to getting to know everyone here better. Thanks!
