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 …

I found this at another forum and after purchasing it, I wanted to share my results.  Instead of pulling everything off of the firewall and putting that really cool large plate up for cracked or broken Firewalls, I found a guy who sells a brace that simply attaches to the (2) bolts on your clutch master cylinder and braces everything against the shock tower.  Very easy to install and I was amazed at the results.  I also understand that his new version will allow the brake vacuum assist to still fit if you are using it.

Problems solved for me.
1.  My brakes now feel solid.
2.  My clutch (a harder to push stage 2)now engages and disengages like it is supposed to.
3.  When my pedals are pressed everything feels stiff and the mushy feel went away.

Ok.......below is the copy/paste from where I bought it and the pictures speak for themselves.  I just want others to know this was a big fix for me and maybe it could be an option for you.  I was charged 103.00 total with shipping.  I am interested in people's questions.  I installed mine with a touch of silcone added where it touches the shock tower.  I did not need to add a screw to secure it to the tower.  NOTE:  I do not have a cracked or broken firewall, but I could see flex before this fix.

The guy I bought it from was Alan...........his email address is: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
____________________________________
THIS IS THE COPY/PASTE FROM THE ORIGINAL POST
Thought I'd post this up in case any of you high HP 951 guys with heavy clutches need one. I designed this for my v8 swap as a preventative measure (don't have any cracks yet, but I've heard it's just a matter of time).

If you haven't heard of the firewall cracking problem, here's my understanding... some cars (mostly ones with heavier clutches fitted) have developed cracks in the firewall around the clutch master cylinder due to the extra force exerted. I've seen a whole lot of crazy looking solutions to this that look only marginally effective. I wanted something cleaner looking and more of a bolt-on than weld-in.

Anyone who's interested in trying one, let me know. I am waiting on the fabricator's quotes right now. Figured I'd start with just a couple first to test fit them in a couple cars I'm working on. They will be laser cut from 13 gauge steel, press broken, welded seams, and then powder coated. I'm guessing they will cost about $150 each in quantity? **UPDATE** Price is $99 + shipping **

The basic idea is that it goes between the firewall and the MC, and the other end wedges up against the very sturdy strut tower. Optionally, a couple holes could be drilled to bolt it to the strut tower or through the wheel well. **UPDATE: After test fitting the prototypes, I do not believe that any drilling into the strut tower or wheel well will be necessary. The bracket feels very secure in its position against the strut tower. I plan to install it with just a layer of silicone between the bracket and the strut tower to prevent any marring of the surface from vibration during driving.**

I realize this is an old thread but - I'm new to this forum and I am taking over a 948 build..... learning a lot here online!

Did you ever get these fabricated?

I would like to purchase one if you did.
