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.

Looks like you need to move your hydroboost over some. Try slotting the holes on the adapter plate. Depending on how far you need to move it, you may have to modify the linkage to the brake pedal as well.
You could even try shifting the motor over some. Did you use crossmember spacers?
I think most of these end up being around 3/8 to a 1/4" away from the hydroboost. Its close....

Had the same issue with my conversion. I had a machine shop modify the aluminum valve cover by cutting down a section in the back where the hydro boost sits. Of course they welded the aluminum to give it a shaved look in that back section and removed the piece that was sticking up on the valve cover. Still a tight fit but it worked.

That’s exactly what I ended up doing I was able to find somebody that had the exact same issue as you and I up in Canada and he sold me the modified driver side valve cover with a billet aluminum flat cap over the old pcv valve.
