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 …

BLUF: Should I reroute the fuel lines on 83 944 LS1 build? If so does anyone have ideas/experience/a picture?

I have an 83 that is deep in to engine bay prep for paint. I pre-planned, gutted, and prepped nearly all of my mounting spots for hoses and new hardware for the new engine just haven't figured out the fuel lines. It looks like the fuel lines may pass very close to my driver side exhaust/headers. I am concerned about the proximity to the heat. Should I be? Advance searching is not helping me to find this answer.

Thanks in advance for anyone who has advice!

FWIW - i adjusted the hard-lines to the right, and ran the hose on the inside of the strut tower.  I will probably end up running all new lines at some point.

This picture should give you the idea:

Hey George,
Do yourself a favor and remove that throttle body and make sure the butterfly screws are staked in. Some of that brand has had screws get loose and cause the throttle to stick way open, and some have come out completely and went into the engine. Otherwise they are decent throttle bodies.

Yep, you're not the first person to tell me that. I took the butterfly screws out a while back and used a good loctite and re-installed.

George, thanks bro. That engine bay looks great! Did you keep the fuel hard lines that run up the firewall in the stock location too?

Thanks! Yes i did re-use the original hard lines. I am also still using the original fuel pump, but i have a bosch pump ready to go in this winter. I never had fuel pressure drop, just want to get a bit more power out of this 5.3 and i think im close to the limit of the stock pump.
