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 …

Post  xschop on Wed Jun 17, 2009 10:25 am

After removing the 5.3L this weekend to repair the passenger's side rear control arm frame mount. I reinstalled the Fidanza Flywheel and Camaro pressure plate with ARP bolts and Blue Loc-tite. I had to remove the bumper because my lift wouldn't extend far enough with the chain in the middle lift-plate position. After removing the bumper, The TT driveshaft slid right into place and the adapter plate mated on the first hit! I wish that the 944 stock engine had come out this easy. It is amazing how much room is in the engine bay.....PORH

Here's a pic of what I was talking about the stock (15x35x11) 944 Pilot bearing's abillity to walk out and cause damage to the shaft tip under hard acceleration (It will go off kilter if not seated). The stock bearing would set below the plane of the flywheel face. I remedied the situation by installing a 15x35x14mm bearing that puts it axactly at the flywheel face plane in the Pilot bearing adapter that is posted here on 944 Hybrids......PORH

Xschop's 5.3 LM7 build Empty Ditto with QT BH

Post  ffmedic on Sat Jun 20, 2009 12:41 pm

I test fitted the QT BH a few days back, all the pics with narrative is in my pic album. I got the same results as you on this.(FYI the engine I am using is a LT1, though when I was working on this project with QT, they did say the BH would fit a LS1, if you have interest in the BH contact QT as I am not a 100% sure it will fit the LS1 (99% sure it will, but don't take my word on this) )

Xschop's 5.3 LM7 build Empty where to go

Post  xschop on Sat Jul 18, 2009 9:55 pm

Didn't know where to post this, but found something interesting with the 5.3L swap. To get the LS1 intake's throttle body cam to clear, you have to put on the Vette water pump, no big deal, bolts right up. However it sets 3/4" back from the truck's crank pulley. So instead of buying a Vette crank pulley and tensioner to match (which would then throw off the alternator bracket). I looked it over and 3/4" water-jacket spacers can be made to go between the Vette pump and Truck block, problem solved. I will get pics up when done with that crap. I am working on the best way to mount the Truck alternator and I'm done....Edited because I'm gonna run the 944 PS pump with the Truck alternator using an F-body bracket (modded).

Xschop's 5.3 LM7 build Empty Dual MC set-up

Post  xschop on Sat Jul 18, 2009 10:04 pm

Was also able to work out the final details of the BOLT-ON dual MC housing set-up. Will machine a few sets when I'm done doing everybody else's parts. I still am waiting on the Driver's side header to get here and double check the bottom area/interference of the Tilton housing with the header. I also sent my Moroso Pan and the pan conversion pieces along with another Moroso pan over to a friend. He also has a CNC that he uses for his welding business. If he can precision cut and then tig weld the pan exactly as I laid out, I will offer an LS oil pan for the swap....Stay tuned.

Xschop's 5.3 LM7 build Empty Lil update

Post  xschop on Wed Mar 24, 2010 4:37 pm

Brakes are plumbed, 944 PS pump bracket done, Heater lines squared away and Got the air intake dondy...Pepboys has a 4" dia. flex hose and 90 Deg T-body bend that is perfect with a 4" diameter hi flo Recharge air filter that fit right under the nose panel. (which I wrapped in 1/2 poly foam to keep any vibration noises from resonatiing)
Exhaust and wiring harness with various sensors left to go then I will be posed for take-off......Oh Yes, Got the RX7 rear caliper mod on lock-down. I ordered 86 Turbo rear rotors to match the Lexus/Boxster Rotors, then the brackets will be milled upon final design this weekend. Did some bodywork too during my week off. Very Happy

Looks good, Glad to see it coming together.
Put some kind of protection on those heater hoses right where they touch the frame, or they will be leaking in no time.

PepBoys, off the shelf $19.95, same for the expansion hose.
I will post up the Ebay link where I got the Billet PS Reservoir. I had to make an M12x1.0 plug for it because I couldn't find one at my local bolt house.

I tossed the boxes, sorry. I will try stopping by there in the next day or so. I haven't decided on the Flowmaster 3" or Magna Flow 3" from them just yet.

Freed up space in front of the passenger head where my billet PS reservoir now sits. I am keeping the pop-up light mechanism so the cone filter wouldn't work there unless it was deleted. And the mod only freed-up about $65 including the Cone filter under the nose Cool

Ok. I need to shore-up any vacuum lines needed. Since I have an 85.5 and tossed the carcoal canister (FCARB)...... IIRC, I only have the Air Vent controls on vacuum? How did everyone else hook this up?

Xschop's 5.3 LM7 build Empty Pics

Post  xschop on Tue Apr 20, 2010 11:04 am

Got some pics taken of some more small updates....

About $10 in Home Depot plumbing fittings (CPVC is the yellowish pipe) to get the 1/4" steam pipe to plumb into the 1" reservoir feed
line....[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And with the extra idler pulley on the Power Steering bracket, the reservoir hose doesn't have to be re-routed or cut...

Man, that is what I have been looking for, My local hydraulic guy looked at me like I was crazy when I asked about that kind of fittings.
Do you know which part number would be the right fitting to get the AN 6 line to seal up to the power rack?

Thanks anyways homies, I made my own banjo bolt in the shop this afternoon.
For you guys running the power rack in "Manual Mode" ,you could do like I did and face/true the inner bolt face of an M14 x 1.5 bolt and chop it short and use 1 crush washer....I made an extra in case I ever do the mod Cool

Damn Modenas, you crack me up. clown

I used 9608-06-12, 9608-06-14, 9605S-06-L10-16 and 9605S-06-L12-18 for the Hydraboost, rack and pump fittings. I reused the banjo fitting for the suction side of the pump and rack return however the last number in the part number is the metric thread size. They actually averaged $3.00 each looking at the bill and worked sweet. Those were all straight fittings however angled are available.
