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 have an additional cost if I go this route, I'll have to sell my scissors lift and get a two post lift What a Face 

I thought the two cars were essentially identical in weight? Anyway, probably comes down to personal preference. And how fat your wallet is!

Diff is in the weight of the fiberglass roof vs. the cayman roof. I prefer the look of the cayman but the boxster S, either intact or w/out engine, is significantly less $$$$$.

Ya, a quick google puts high mileage Cayman S's in the low $20's and similar Boxter S's in the low $teens, although the Caymans are 4-5 years newer.

I want to see an engine like Franky III in a Box….that would be a corvette killer!

The answer might be coming soon to a thread near you! Stay tuned!

Edit: ANOTHER Corvette Killer!

Psst! Hey buddy can you spare an engine?

If I do this, it will be a bigger engine that what is in Franky III Shocked

The good news is that I have 3 people lined up to buy my scissor lift Very Happy

Eric, did you get this off the ground? A local guy has a box that is starting the notorious IMS rattle.
I still vote for an LV3 swap when they become available.

Got a local guy that has a box with IMS syndrome and I may pick it up for a swap. I was thinking the new GM v6 LFX for my next 944 swap due to it's simple exhaust, so why not a box.
Question is what are exact dimensions on an 2.7 box engine?

I see 2.7 boxter engines sitting on pallets and garage floors for sale on ebay, maybe one of those guys can measure one up for you?

Really interested in this swap, btw. The LFX is a hot little engine.

I would have to get the box at a steal, but I planned on putting this engine in a 944. No headers needed Very Happy
