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).

Hey all..got extremely lucky and bought an ex RH 87 blk / blk 951 with the LS1 engine..
Needs some body and paint work in the rear due to the silly aftermarket lit turbo sign.
Wanted to get feed back on should I re-install the turbo badge or should I see if a 948 or technically a 958 badge is available..
How do people feel about this issue ?
Thanks

Personally i plan to keep the turbo badge on the back.. i am also going to keep my electronic boost gauge hooked up. It will make for a sweet vacuum gauge Laughing . I figure it will let people know what the cars roots were!

Preference really.... although in my mind the thing that made the 944 chassis a 951 was its turbo, mine no longer has one so I thought 948, 944 with a V8. Technically I could go with 958 as my engine is 5.8l......there are no rules to this, do whatever tickles your fancy. Very Happy

Didnt you guys read the rules when you signed up here? If you checked "I Agree" when signing up, you should already be aware of the following...

IC 9-19-4-1
Passenger cars originally equipped with 944 or 951 designation decal;

Sec. 1. When operated upon completion, a hybrid must so be equipped with the 948 designation no more than three (3) inches from the original stock location. Failure to comply will result in a class C infraction and ultimately, banishment from the site without formal notice.
As added by P.L.2-2008, SEC.7.

To " badge or not to badge " Empty Reason

Post  fliermike45 Fri May 11, 2012 10:10 pm

Reason you should have a 948 on the tail is to indicate what blew them away, then they go nuts trying to figure out if Porsche actually built a 948.

As for you 951 guys.....911's have a variety of model numbers, but EVERYONE calls them 911's so don't confuse the mental midgets, they never heard of a 951, in fact did it ever say that on a car???

I have 1 of those 20 badges above. I am waiting to mount it once I finish the body work and paint.

Having a turbo badge on an NA is well, pretty lame. If there's no turbo, then there should be no turbo badge. Razz

You have some valid points..maybe I should re-consider and do the 958 thing..the purists are already gonna go nuts when I lift the hood and they see the corvette fuel rail covers !! Very Happy

To " badge or not to badge " Empty Purista

Post  fliermike45 Sat May 12, 2012 12:26 pm

I have been to two PCA events and my car has been well received. I fully expected the purista to roll their eyes or similar activities. In fact my car was well appreciated, I got a lot of compliments and possibly some envy because I feel the boxster drivers are probably going to be blown away. That's the plan.

What helps I believe is the car's outer apperance, it's stock, I have not butchered the body with flared wheel arches and my wider wheels are Porsche cup 1 style. Some comments are "this is what Porsche should have done"

At least the air cooled brigade have lost their famous war cry now that all current Porsche models are watercooled.

I had the same experience at a recent concours. I had friends push me into registering for french, even though I did not clean one bit of the car. I ended up placing 2nd in my class and had a blast talking to various people.

I'm starting to think the only purist attitudes that we get are from the 944 community and that's probably mostly do to jealousy. Razz

Im very involved in the local PCA scene here and the majority of the guys and girls are awsome..they respect any non porsches that have shown up for our bi monthly drives which sometime total over 50 porsches and a few corvettes..ferrarris..bmws..my 951 is quite modified so
Im known for not having anything stock anyways Very Happy

The pca guys don't have a problem with my car. It confuses some, they hear it on track, know it isn't stock, then see the 948 badge and ask me if Porsche put the 928 motor in a 944...
