HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin

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 …

So since I am one of the few that put an LS1 in my 924, the engine bay is just slightly narrower, thus my intake actually is reversed, we had to remove the cabin blower motor to tunnel the intake where the battery was located.  Even with insulation in the cabin the car retains heat near your feet at lower speeds.  I'm trying to improve that by determining ways to circulate air.

One I have is an aftermarket blower and tunnel a new "chimney stack" to allow fresh air in by the wiper motor while having it capped so water is not likely to come in. However, like any vehicle, you let air in but it would be nice to have it pass through the car and escape out somewhere.  Now something like tilt out windows would be awesome, yet I have no clue how to do this.  xschop, you have any ideas?  This would sell like hot cakes in my opinion!

I'd be interested in thoughts.  Hopefully someone has come up with something to allow for better circulation and I don't have to reinvent the wheel.

sunroof eliminated. And the problem is heat build up at the front of the cabin (by the feet) at low speeds.

Maybe you could open the hatch slightly like they do on some Corvettes. (my friends 94 ZR1 does this)
