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 …

Hallo,

Im trying to find a good replacement engine for a Porsche 944.
Now I really want to stick with Porsche, I believe that a Porsche should have a Porsche engine.
And I know that a lot you will say that there is now way of pulling this off. I think that "Does not work/fit" just really means "Did not try hard enough". So please just react with suggestions and options, no "is not possible"

I Have my eye set on the front engine Porsches that are build bij Porsche nowadays. I particular like the VR6 engines that where used in the Cayenne and I believe also the Macan. How close do these engines come to fitting in the engine bay of a 944?

What other engines would you suggest when wanting to stick to Porsche engines?

Moderator, don't know if this is the correct way to do it, please move to correct place if necessary.

Probably going to be the most problematic with the electronic side of things. Are you planning on using the 944 5 speed or go with the auto box from the donor? So many electronic nannies on these new cars. Shocked

the only real way to do it would be to run an aftermarket stand alone ecu. the engine is just an air pump, as long as its not direct injected most aftermarket computers can be made to work. id assume its variable cam timing, that part can take a bit to figure out, but its perfectly do-able.

I hear what you're saying... but... there are a lot of Porsches that came from the factory without a Porsche engine. Such as that Cayenne VR6 which is actually a VW engine. The 914 and 924 engines were from VW as well. And the 924/944 gearbox was from Audi.

This isn't unusual: Fords with Volvo engines, Land Rovers with GM engines, etc. Some of the Hondas the entire car was build by Isuzu and they just stuck a bunch of letter H badges on it.

Yes! Someone has already put a VR6 in a 944. IIRC, it was posted over on Rennlist. Check there.

I hear all of you, I have been doing some more thinking about the project.
Its going to be a full custom car, not just a swap.

I want a track ready car, but it must ben daily drivable.
So the car is going to get a full custom chassis with integrated roll cage.
This way I can put in any engine a want (as long as its not to high)
Its going to have air suspension, to have a low and stiff race setting, comfortable street setting with nose lift for parking garage/speedbumps.

I want to use a Porsche Boxster rear mounted auto transmission. This because I want the steering wheel paddle transmission and so that my girlfriend can also drive the car..

Have done some quick renderings of what I would like the frame to look like..

Ambitious.
Reminds me of this project. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

If it were me, I would use the 944 tub and do a front half and back half frame....not sure a Boxster automatic is really a track day type of trans though.....girlfriends come and go, teach her to drive manual Laughing

Thanks.
That car is a big inspiration in what I want to do.
I have actually been in contact with Kelly Moss racing to get more info on there 944 build.

I know that the guys at "Motorwerks racing" use Boxster gearboxes in the track cars. Also I know that
within the local Porsche club there are plenty of Boxster owners how use there car (use pretty well) on the track. Haha yeah I know, this one is not one im going to let go though Smile
I want to have the flappy paddle gearbox though!!
