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 …

It's been a long time. My 948 is still kicking but I blew a head gasket from a blown water pump... I'm seriously considering letting it go. I starts fine and runs but, I just don't want to deal with a head gasket and I'm getting too old for a car so damn awesome and fast.

This a youtube video of it from 2006:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I welded my own 3" stainless exhaust from two 2.5" stainless header down-pipes. Has a nice big stainless truck catalytic converter on it as well. Has a straight through glass-packed exhaust (stainless as well). I put in the Cadillac ignition system and sealed the Optispark. It's an '83 with a 1986.5 Turbo limited slip transaxle with a cooler. It has the '83 N/A 5th gear for good highway cruising. Gears polished and hardened. It's crazy fast. I used the Renegade Hybrids kit. Renegade also reprogrammed the ECU for better power. It's solid. I updated the torsion bars to some higher strength (forgot mm size). I lowered it a little. Used Renegade lower springs for the front. I did so many things. Has new 911 power seats (one in the car, the other on a shelf) Has an Oil cooler, new water pump, power steering cooler (yes, I put power steering in).

I'll be back. Just throwing this out here. Was a great ride but need to use my time for other things now.

It's been garaged since 1999. I live in Connecticut. I've had it since about 1995/6.

Always used synthetic Mobil 1 and WIX oil filters. I also put in a big external Ford truck filter system (stainless wrapped oil lines). When the water pump blew, the engine oil got too thin and the ECU shut the engine down. Called AAA. Was too late for the head gasket though. I didn't know that until after I replaced the water pump. Thus, it works fine, it just eventually blows the coolant out of the system because of a pressure leak out of one of the cylinders into the cooling system. Who knows, may need new heads.

...and it passes emissions in CT every time with flying colors.

The Cadillac ignition system I put in has one coil pack per 2 cylinders on the LT1 versus the LT1's stock single coil.
