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.

There will be a 16 gallon fuel cell just behind the rear end assembly, fits perfect.
All the cradle assembly is welded to the frame rails and floor of the car. The cage will tie into this as well when it's done. I figured if I welded it in place that ,just maybe , I wouldn't change it! Laughing

The 2.73 is the Holy grail IMO. I think Doug calculated 1400 RPM at 70mph when it is mated to the 6 speed manual.

21 gallons for a late car, 18 for early. But I've only ever pumped 17 into my '87.

Eric; that optima road race, is that the Sand Hills Road Race? Saw a special about it on Speed and plan to do one once the car is up and running.

I guess it is, I'm going to talk to my Optima rep and neighbor that wanted me to go, Sounds like a big waste of my time now that you gave the name of it,(if this is the same race, I'm sure it is). Looks like they have no interest in drawing in new comers. I don't think I will drive from North Texas to Nebraska for a race that I can't even be in.... Shocked
Thanks for the heads up. Also looks like the speed is limited to 120 or 120 mph, how can I even stretch my legs at that? I can get to 120mph before I get to my mail box! Laughing Laughing Laughing

It doesn't look that way.
I would like to go, I just ordered a ton of parts to get my twins on the 6.0! Shocked 200?
