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 …

Hey Administrator. I have built many 010 transmissions. Mainly back in the day, However I did a complete rebuild on my '86 944 with auto before I sold it in 2010. The unit is very simple by todays standards. no electronics all hydr. The factory stall on my torque converter was 3200, way to high for me but seemed to work with the 2.5 motor. I did the rebuild and did some machine work to get additional clutches in the drums. I ordered a custom 1800 stall converter and did some other modifications to the valve body for higher oil pressure. When it was all said and done it performed a lot better , take off was quick, shifts were great, but the 4cyl just had no power. My LS1 I drive now with the 5spd is a super car by compareson. To answer the question about the TV cable or rod ,that controls line pressure as well as shift points. It must be hooked up. As far as durabilty behind a LS1? My personal opinion, it was not designed to handle that much torque. The planetary and clutch assemblys are engineered to handle about 1/2 the torque of a 700r4/4L60-E transmission. I have thought of using a corvette automatic set up with the computer controls, but wow that could get very pricey by the time you were done. I prefer automatics. Put them in drive and go.

the 010 trans works pretty good behind my sbc .it shifts really quick .once i got my tv cable set it worked great.ive had a v8 hooked to mine several years and 2 or 3 thousand miles with several dragstrip passes with no problems.i was thinking admin was running a v6 in the auto conv which should work nice.i have never ran mine without tv cable .i hooked mine up when i performed my conversion so i havnt experienced what it would do unhooked.but my experience with gm autos taught me that it has to be hooked up to operate properly.mine was rebuilt by a local guy that does racing powerglides and he performed some minor mods that seem to be working good.

That is awsome. I was wondering if any one had tried an automatic. Sounds like you have yours dialed in very well. One day I will attempt to install an overdrive automatic behind a LS1. That would be sweet. Has anyone done this that you know of. Most guys love the race car feel of a standard. I am a lazy driver that just likes to go fast. lol
