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 everyone,

I am a new member and would love some input on the LS1 transformations. I have a 89 944 turbo s Track car. I just had the engine rebuilt for a fortune 8 hours ago and a have a rod Knock already. I really want to move into a more reliable engine.

Thanks,

Dave

I lost interest on my build more than a few times, but the end result was definitely worth it.

Just be very realistic about the time and cost it will take to get the car completed (running) and everything sorted out.

Up to last month i had 4 cars and considered selling it to downsize a number of times but i just cant bring myself to do it. Once you turn the first lap after working out all the bugs i really felt all the trouble (and money) i went through was completely worth it.

From a reliability standpoint, the LS can last a very long time. And coming from the 944T you will be amazed at how cheap parts are.

I've had axle and motor mount troubles, but the LS1 engine has been rock solid. Clutch and brake master are tricky to get right in the conversion. Love mine too!

I haven't had any clutch or drivetrain issues. I've had some motor mount issues which I feel were caused by inferior parts/design.

The motor has been rock solid, most of my issues have been trying to keep the water temps under control. Most of that has to do with my race environment, between the altitude and ambient temps, plus the fact I still run A/C.

Brakes can be a tougher nut to crack, hopefully an adapter for the stock 951 master cylinder to work with the Ford hydroboost is forthcoming. Otherwise I'd run either the hydroboost from an early '80's BMW or the 965, both will allow the reuse of the stock 951 master cylinder.

The car is alot of fun to drive, still very balanced and motor is rock solid, easy to get ridiculous power from reliably.
