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 …

Thought i'd share something i found. I noticed one of the other exhausts on the board used the same piece, but i thought it was pretty handy.

Flowmaster makes a 2.5 -> 3.5 "Y" that looks to flow pretty nicely (PN: Y250350). I re-did the front half of my exhaust with it and i think it turned out very clean. Earlier i had just welded the 2x 2.5" pipes into the 3.5" pipe and it was not nearly as clean.

So i used:
2x 1/2" thick 3" flange (get them on ebay...won't ever deform!)
2x 3" -> 2.5" reducers welded to the back side of the flanges
1x 2.5" 180* + 45* pipe for the mandrel bends: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (these are cheaper on ebay)
1x 90* 3.5"
1x 3.5" center in, center out SpinTech (really like this muffler, and it was one of the few made in 3.5" when i bought it, but it seems there are others now)
...and however much 3.5" pipe

Here's a shot of my latest re-do.

Anyways, more than one way to do this but i thought i'd share.

Whoops meant to put one up. This one is my friend driving so he took it a little easy:

I keep meaning to get a video of the idle, it sounds quite nasty. I have usually owned cars with dual exhaust but i have no complaints about the way this car sounds.

Thanks! Smile

They're hollow Turbo Twists. I had to swap to an '86T rear hub to fit them but they are a light and cheap 18" wheel (because they don't fit much except widebody 996T's).

Is your car running a stock cam? I'm just curious because I've been looking for a setup that gets that kinda of sound.

My cam is 224*/.575" on a 113LSA. It's not stock but it's also not very wild.
