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 …

**this setup is for sale if anyone is interested. Asking $700 OBO to get back what I have in it (parts+machining). Less than 100 miles on everything. I realized this was overkill for how I use my car. ***


tldr; Budget big brakes for early NA with off the shelf parts and minimum machining...and it fits inside 15" wheels.
Caliper is 2lbs lighter than stock NA caliper; rotor is 5.5lbs heavier - net gain of only 3.5 lbs for about 26% more brake torque.

For a given brake line pressure this combo should make more brake torque than 951 brakes and be comparable to "Big Reds".

--   2009+ Dodge Caravan 302mm brake rotor modified to fit the back of the early 944 NA hub (open up center hole and drill 5x126 pattern). 28mm thick vs 20 for stock NA.
--   2004 Pontiac GTO brake caliper (twin-piston 42mm floater) already has the 76mm bolt spacing to bolt up to the 944 spindle.
---------- Need to elongate the holes less than 1/8" to pull the caliper radially inwards to clear the 15" wheel barrel (not necessary with 16" wheels).
---------- Needs 1mm spacer washer between caliper and spindle to center over the rotor.
--   C5 Corvette brake pads fit the GTO calipers and perfectly match the radius of the rotors
--   This GTO caliper will work on a late NA as well with an 87+ 951 rotor but you might need to machine the caliper more to adjust the caliper centerline over the rotor.

Once the front is sorted I do intend to figure an upgrade for the rear as well to fix the F/R bias, hoping to find another near-bolt-on caliper for that too. Have some options noted but I haven't bought any of them yet to check.
