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 …

Wanted to post the latest in the conversion.

1987 Turbo, Corvette LS1 2000, RH Kit (Bell housing, Headers), Eric's customs work (everything else)
Conversion time 18mo. (My fault, 1st year was my time, then I had Eric's help, then we did it the way we wanted to to, no hurry up to get it running, lots of planning and redo's until we got it).

Current status - Running, in the first of a few weeks shake down.

LS1 - 2000 Corvette
5 Speed Turbo Transmission with 5th gear swap
Air Shocks on the rear
Moved battery to Rear Passenger wheel well

Created space in front of engine bay by:
Custom Headlight buckets - removed pop up
Custom Radiator mount, move radiator up 4" towards front of car for space and to use larger Radiator
Moved washer bottle to old battery location
Removed hood latch and put in hood pins (would not use this brand if we did it again)
Used original 944 fans

Brakes - Porsche Turbo calipers with Ford Hydroboost 99 Mustang GT
P/S pump - Kept blowing the Corvette unit so went with Turn 1 unit.
New P/S pump cooler
Power Steering - rebuilt unit from Zimm's

A/C After market Pump on F-Body bracket

Seats from 2003 996 - both sides full power

Wheels from 2003 Boxter

PCM Programming from PCM for Less (Brad)

replaced fuse box, discovered internal corrosion was causing electrical issues

Exhaust - Headers into 3" pipe to Dynomax Performance 17769 - Dynomax Super Turbo Muffler Very quiet stealthy ride.

Todo:

Class sunroof
Interior upgrade - rear seats to match front, custom console
Stereo and speakers
Fix power mirrors
Redo Door panels
Install sound proofing
custom rear hatch cover
paint - (when wife free's up more allowance)

I plan to do a more detailed write up on the parts and effort we put into this (Kent and Eric) we learned a lot on the way here and want to share.

So how does she drive.....Holy S*&6 batman, this is better than I ever thought. Words cannot describe just how quick, fast, smooth, it does answer the question of what happens when you marry HP to Torque.

here are the pics.

because they are a PITA and for the price they have chipped the edges of the black finish. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Kent/Eric,
How well is the ford hydroboost working? What front rotors and calipers are you using?

so far, very nice.

Using stock 944 turbo calipers and rotors.

I really takes a bite, if you look at the turbo pad size and compare it to the other options, it is only 17% smaller than the lexus option. We tried the manual brake option and it only took one ride to give up on that option, now she stops on a dime.

Great work. Your gallery is one of the most complete builds I've seen, showing even the "mundane" problems/solutions.

Glad to hear it turned out well! Wish I had the $$$ for some of your upgrades!

Hey, just reread the post...

What up with "air shocks in rear"?

Stopped the rear end squat. I had these made for my car, but my car is not on the road as of yet and Kent needed them more right now than I did, So he now has them.
