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 …

They started off as Chevy II headers. Passenger side didn't need much work, chopped the pipes before the bend where the collector would level out, about 7" shorter. Drivers side had to be disassembled completely and pieced back together. I paid attention to good sparkplug boot clearance, similar lengths of tubes, steering clearance and will also keep the oil filter in the stock location. For the turned collector I bought a "Nelson" short 3" 90 and cut it in half. I have about $120 into them including paint but not including wire and gas.

Oil pan turned out GREAT! I want to add a baffle yet for braking oil control yet..and a drain plug!

I was actually thinking of doing a Y pipe into some of the 5" tube I have, fab a simple resonator or small glasspack and then 3 1/2" to the back. Muffler I was thinking about splitting the 5" tubing in half and adding a 4" strip to make a 3 1/2" in, 5" X 9" X 18" body dual 2 1/2" out muffler. More time than disposable income I guess! I actually used Thrush 3" in/out welded mufflers on the airboat I built and did the 3" pipe into a single short 5" tailpipe. It is pretty quiet all things considered! (489 BBC)

These RHS Pro Torquer heads have slots milled into the heads to act as guide plates just like Small block Ford used late 60's and 70's. I would machine the slots out and use guideplates however alignment is close to perfect. At any rate we are talking 1" difference between position of slot in head and where guideplates would be.

Camshaft broke in! Sounds great,
No leaks, engine almost ready to go in. Hydrovac work this weekend... PS pump will be original Porsche using original pulleys! To simple!

Proper clutch assy? Centerforce has great information on their web site. Chevy has a type 2 bolt pattern... Some Mopars also use a type 2 bolt pattern. Mopars typically use a Borg and beck pressure plate. After checking the tables I decided on a 10.5" clutch set for a 1977-1987 Dodge Ramcharger with a 318. I expected to receive a Borg and beck style pressure plate but when I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised to find one with a Diaphragm pressure plate! I just ordered a stock Fenco for $180.00 new and will have a leftover release bearing and pilot bearings but...

Have you test fit it on your car? The hydro's that I have installed needed to be angled up to give clearance and keep the master cylinder level. just MO

Pilot bearing... 6302 2rs bearing and a strip of .025" shim stock $12.00

When you do your test fit double check the input shaft and see how far it goes into your pilot bearing. Looks like your bearing is a little deep in the crack. Better to be safe than sorry!

thanks, I'll measure it up with the bellhousing to make sure. Your right about the hydroboost angle, I knew it was tilted one direction or another! Embarassed took about 4 tries to get location and angles right anyways.. Smile
Lookin good now! Very Happy

Pulled bearing .100".. Much better! Thanks again!!! Very Happy

Well the release bearing support in the manual wont work with the pressure plate I picked.. Crying or Very sad
Chevy pressure plate that much lower? The clutch I picked has a finger height of approx. 2.1" That puts the Richmond retainer about .6" to high with the Ram 78125 hydraulic release, cant even bolt the bell-housing on.. Is a Chevy pressure plate really only 1.5" finger height bolted on? Well anyways I had to fab a release bearing support. Worked out pretty nice!

Hey Admin! You wanted pics or measurement of carbed SBC? Well here is a pic. at any rate. The Holley rear float bowl is level with the fenders with the strait edge at the air horn. Intake is an Edelbrock EPS.

Well with my power steering pully choice and free puller fan, I ended up doing the removable front crossmember and relocating the radiator forward. great Idea... Much nicer! Actually I'm thinking I'll change that a bit as well... Embarassed Just flipping it over so the crossmember is hidden behind the bumper. Only 2"x3" angle I had kicking around was 1/4" so It's stiff enough and I don't see any reason not to get more room and better airflow yet? I'ts coming along... crank trigger and Megasquirt should be here next week.

If you will/can keep us up to date on the Meg squirt, I have been thinking of doing one myself. I would like to know how much of a PTA it is.

Very Happy Sweet car! I'm glad we did it as it was worth it big time! First race was only a RX8, I was already in 4th doing about 35 mph when I saw him come by my back bumper so it was just 4th gear roll on for me and just walked away from him (he was in his power band) to 80 and then let him go by. Turned around at the end of the freeway and did a 0-100 mph run and 20 hours later the grin is still on my face! Thanks for the help forum members!

Megasquirt is cool! If you can build a Hybrid 944 you can do Megasquirt. I didn't want the issues of assembling my own processor so bought an assembled and tested unit for this first one. You really have to look for your own info on the websites and forum however it seems to work great for as little time I have actually spent tuning it. I'm sure I can unlock some more power once I tweak the timing curve. I'm running Megasquirt 2 Extra code on MS2 processor and it will work your LS coil packs however I ran Ford Edis ignition in mine.

So...
'86 944 with 350 Chevy with modified LT1 intake with Ford injectors, Megasquirt 2 Extra controller and Ford Edis distributorless ignition system with an Astro Hydroboost, Quicktime bellhousing, Ram hydraulic release bearing, Ramcharger clutch assy. Very Happy Very Happy
