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 …

Edit: car is now available on Bring a Trailer.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I've decided to sell my 944.  It's a great car, and I loved doing the swap, and the rest of my projects on the car.  But I believe I am finished with this one, and I have some future projects in mind.  I bought this car from a friend, it sat in a barn for 6 or so years before I got it.  It is a 1984, originally Guards Red, but it has been repainted by me with a clear/base coat using the original paint code.  Brand of paint is Tamco.  I used an epoxy primer, but when I sanded the old paint down, I avoided going to bare metal, so as not to touch the galvanized panels.  This car also has a late interior swap...  After completing the paint, the old interior was really lagging.  

The car is currently in a heated garage, but with it being December in Michigan, it's not the ideal time of year to sell, I know.      

Price: NA.
Location: Farmington Hills, MI


The car has the following:

Engine:
LS3 Engine - Refreshed by local machine shop with new bearings/rings
E67 Gen IV control system - GMPP cal
New LS7 clutch
TPC basic swap kit used, with shorty headers
True dual exhaust with H pipe and C6 corvette quad tips
951 Radiator (had no trouble keeping up with Woodward Dream Cruise stop and go traffic)

Working AC, just put a NOS Delphi compressor in
F body accessory drive with Fbody powersteering pump

Brakes:
Mustang Hydroboost
Mustang Master Cylinder with Wilwood proportioning valve for the rears
Fronts are Cayenne 18Z brakes on 350mm rotors
Rears are Boxster rear calipers on stock NA rotors

Suspension
Converted to Late offset in the front
Front adjustable Koni struts
18" Hollow Spoke Turbo Twists
295/30R18 Rear
225/40R18 Front

Transmission:
FWD 01E 6 Speed imported from Germany
Conversion was done by myself, I have a small home machine shop
4340 through hardened axle shafts (stock CV joints still on the car, this is an area that could be upgraded in the future)

Exterior:
Guards Red base/clear paint job done 2 years ago.  It's not a perfect paint job, but it looks good.  There are a few dings already, and a few spots where I got a run in the clear coat.  

Interior:
Late dash
I wired and soldered all signals to the dash, and all switches
I custom machined an insert to reuse the old cable operated heater valve
Power seats from a Turbo 996
Steering wheel is worn.  I thought about replacing, but that's for the next owner, different people have different preference
No glove box unfortunately.  Because of the early HVAC system, you would have to modify one to fit
 Was never a concern for me


I am selling because I am interested in doing a 996 or 997 swap next.  It is a great car, and it could be a daily driver for someone.  The car is not perfect, but it is in good shape.  It's a driver car, that's what I wanted to build, something I would enjoy driving.  The interior swap is an upgrade (subjective of course), but fit and finish is not perfect on everything.  It is also missing the lower door pockets.  
I believe this car was in a small accident at some point.  The front passenger fender needed a little work to smooth it out, and the plastic headlight surround does not fit for some reason.  I'm not sure if it's because the cover is slightly bent, or if different years have different size covers?  Either way, all parts will be included.

Also included is a nice fitted outdoor cover.  I think it might be coverking, but I don't remember...

With the 01E, this would be an excellent car for a power adder...  I know of two other 01E swapped 944s.  One is an 800+hp drift machine, the other is a member here with an LSA.  As far as I know, my LS3 is the slowest 01E 944 out there.  It's plenty fast though!  A very fun car to drive.

Thanks! This one is from a TDI. I wanted one with the taller gear ratios for a better match to the LS3.
