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 guys - new to the forum

Short Intro:
My name is Dieter, 33 years of age and from Belgium. Cars and racing are my reason for living. I've got 4 cars (today) and last month was able to buy a house with a nice warehouse where i can store them and make a nice workshop/man cave.

I work a deskjob in the metalworking machinery sector and basically learned all my automotive skills either by simple trial and error, through forums and also people sharing their skills at techmeets.

And now we arrive to the reason for registering here, i want to change the trackday car to a drift car.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

But the 4 cylinder turbo ecu car was getting on my nerves because in order to get it right one has to put an enormous amount of time and money into it. Take a motor which makes 170 hp and then trying to add another 130 hp makes for a lot of headaches and reliability is definitely reduced. So i want to move to a chevy small block.

I've looked through the forum and wiki page but for a newbie like me it's not all too clear how this conversion works and what is needed so a couple of questions to start off:
- which 944 gearbox would be best suited for a leisure driftcar?
- in terms of bellhousing i gather the C5 is the way to go?
- does the LS conversion organic clutch also work for the LT1?

Welcome.
The Turbo transaxle is accepted as being stronger, 1st & 2nd gears, than early 944 versions; the later 944S transaxles have the same main shaft as the turbo unit, 1st & 2nd gears. I doubt the factory LSD would live a long life drifting. A Guard unit would be my choice.
The C5 BH is a good choice but the SFI rated Quciktime housing is a better one.
The 11" clutch disc you mention would require a flywheel and pressure plate of a suitable size, made for an LT1 engine.
