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 …

Oh, they don't scare me off, I could fix them if I had the time and parts. It's just that putting $2k+ worth of parts in to a 140hp engine that has 250k km on it already just doesn't seem worth it, when I could put a few more thousand in and have something better in pretty much every sense.

And that entire list isn't true! I worked at a dealership garage for half a year, so I have some experience. I have a shop with tools...it's just not very convenient, and I don't have money...but I have my parent's! lol

I want to do this, and it will be challenge, but that's what makes it worth it, right?

You can start now. You don't need an engine hoist to remove the engine, just redline it in the driveway without oil till the block is blown into pieces. Mine was missing half the side of the block, 2 rods and shattered oil pan.....ain't that right Modenas? Razz

Well okay...
Putting a v8 in is only going to make it better in one sense (power). It's still going to handle like a soggy 80's car, and the brakes will go from suck to SUCK. Plus with the gearing of the n/a trans (assuming it lasts), you're going to be burning a lot of gas and going nowhere.

Why not just take the $7k and buy a nice running 951? Or a Mustang/Camaro? $7k will buy you a lot of decent cars, and you won't even have to spend your entire summer getting them running!

As much as I hate to admit it, I think you might be right. I did some quick checking, and there's a guy an hour from here selling a '91 944 S2 with 51,000 kms on it (he specifies km's, but then says the odo is in miles....so not 100% sure) and he want's $8500 for it... sounds pretty good to me. And if I want to do an engine swap down the road when I'm out of university and have money, this would make an excellent donor car :p

Apparently it's a euro VIN....not sure if that has any sneaky problems with it though...

EDIT: Discussing it with my mom, she seems fairly open to the idea, and here's the link to the add if anyone is curious...BUT I TOTALLY CALL DIBS!!! [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

NICE car! The 3.0L's are much improved over the 2.5L n/a's....and like you said, if you decide you still want to do a V8 later, you can sell the 3.0L stuff and the S2 trans for some of what the v8 swap will cost!

The S2's have the Turbo body, brakes, suspension... They're a whole different car from what you've got.

Check around for a 968 if you absolutely must have a Porsche. They occasionally dip down into your price range. There's a lot of stuff for sale on rennlist too!
