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 …

Hello All   👋

New to the forum, but not new to Porsches. In regards to a 944 forum though; I've had an 87' 944S for many years now. Originally wanted to swap an LS into it but ended up keeping it stock and wanting to preserve it.


Fast forward to today:

I recently I purchased a running and driving 88' 944S (twin spec to my 87' but paint has been changed at some point in its life) that was a barn find for $500 or so. Pulled from a barn on horse ranch. The body and everything is in really good condition but the interior was shot because the previous owner left the windows down and... yeah.. nasty and rusty interior around barn animals and trees. I originally purchased the vehicle for the engine and to be essentially a parts car for my 87' should I ever need anything.


A few months after that I ended up getting an amazing price on a 6.2L Gen 5 L86 (Same engine as LT1, just with different intake manifold for more torque.) So my plans changed for the new car. Still plan on keeping the engine for the 87', but now gutting out the barn find and trying to decide how far I take it on the race car spectrum (read: how much money to sink into it  Laughing )

I searched and searched but couldn't find anyone who had done this swap, or is currently doing this swap. No clue if I'm the first one, or perhaps there's a few others who are in the same stages as I am. Given that there's no info online, there was a lot of research on my end and working with various companies to figure out parts. I've gotten most things pieced together now and i'm currently in the process of pulling the Porsche engine.


I won't really know if things pieced together will work or not until I test fit the LT. Once it's in, there will be a lot more to figure out i'm sure.


Well, now that the intro is out of the way, I will post photos and updates. Hopefully my journey can help anyone else who will be tackling the LTx swap.

Good luck. I put on an oil cooler and power steering fluid cooler on my LT1 944. With limited space, it's good to try and keep things cool.
