HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

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.

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 …

Hi guys, I've been wanting to start a thread for my build now so here goes nothing. To start let me say thanks to everyone on here as I have collected a lot of data off of this website to put this build together. Although I do no have many posts, I have been lurking these forums for about 2 years.

So the car is a one owner 1988  Guards Red 944 S with 330 000kms that has been in the family since before I was born. It sat in our heated garage from 2003 to now 2018 where its almost ready to drive. My father bought it new in 88 and drove it across North America and even brought it to Europe by ferry a few years before I was born.  In 2016 he gave me an ultimatum of "fixing" it or selling it for dirt cheap. Being a huge car enthusiast it broke my heart to think that the car I grew up in and walked past by for 15 years would end up sold... so I sold my R32 GTR and started this build. With the 15 years it sat doing nothing, I did not want to risk trying to turn it over without replacing all the pumps and belts of the stock motor. I put a price list together and decided it wasn't worth dropping all that money into such a low powered "boring" engine. At about that point in time I stumbled across these forums . . .

I will try to make this as structured as possible. Keep in mind it is a bit more than just a swap so it will be picture heavy and some pictures will be no longer relevant as I have changed the setup a couple times. I will break it up into sections of the chassis and the work that has been done so far. You will also notice many parts were refurbished and restored as I have a bit of an OCD problem What a Face All the work is done by me except for the big fabrication parts.

Goal for this car is a bad-ass weekend driver/ego destroyer with track oriented handling for the twisty mountain roads here in the Laurentian Mountains. (Canada eh!)

initial post will be updated many times as I do not have access to all my pictures as of right now

started the build by dressing the LS1 and dry fitting it into the chassis. Wasn't the easiest thing to do considering space and equipment but we made it work. Threw in a picture of the procharger I just picked up. Have to fabricate a bracket for it.

I wouldn't trust my trans to handle a real engine like that! Any worries?
