  1. Thanks for the help! I have an 87 and have not had to put any new brake parts on it yet. Was wondering how much of a challenge it is, with the exception of the front rotors. I guess you're saying the flex hoses listed on RockAuto are too short and won't work?
  2. N9TE - thanks for the reply! Will see if others can chime in on what parts are hard to find for the ABS equipped cars, other than the front rotors....
  3. Hi All, Stupid question perhaps, but are the front rotors on an ABS equipped car the only difficult to obtain brake parts (I'm talking flex hoses, rotors and pads)? I see flex hoses, pads and rear rotors listed on RockAuto for 87 and 88 Turbo cars and am wanting to purchase, but was wondering if their listings were accurate, and they apply to this car. Also, I saw that "early" 944 front calipers are the same as the 505 ABS calipers. Is there any more specific info on which years of calipers are the same, or a part number so this could be looked into? Thanks for a
  4. V-M - thanks for the reply, sorry for taking so long to give you a shout out...
  5. Hi, I am looking to build up an N9TE engine that previously had a cracked head. We had the crank measured and these are the readings that were taken (inches): 2.2347 (56.7614 mm) 2.2348 (56.7639 mm) 2.2348 (56.7639 mm) 2.2346 (56.7588 mm) 2.2348 (56.7639 mm) Here are the main bearing tolerances from the N9TE engine manual: If I am planning to build an engine with custom turbo, injectors, intercooler, ECU, etc. and could make upwards of 250 hp or more, what would be the recommendation with regard to the clearances for the main bearings
  6. Hi All , e-mailed Arias, they came back with $175 for each piston with hardware ($700 for the set). I also e-mailed the person in Maine with the wagon - it was about $130 for each piston 16 years ago from Arias...
  7. Rabin, V-M, Thanks for the information, will pass that along to my brother to see what he thinks about going the SAAB/Volvo route... I see a Turbo wagon was just posted to Craigslist in Falmouth, ME with Arias forged pistons. Will give them a call to see what the going rate for pistons is from them these days. Will follow up with additional info... Prices I was quoting were US $, as
  8. Hi - that price was just for the parts from JE... My brother just got another quote from Mahle, $250/piston with a minimum order of 8. I'll give him another call to see what overbore size they were using.
  9. Hi Apologies for not posting back to the thread, but FINALLY got word back from the machine shop. They quoted $750 USD for the forged pistons, ring pack and pins (using JE). Is this reasonable for this engine? Was hoping for something in the $500 range since this is a 4 cylinder, not an 8!
  10. Hi All, I am still looking in to rebuilding an engine out of an '87 505 Turbo parts car I have. Seems I would need to get oversized pistons, so the machine shop is looking in to the pricing for .020 over pistons and a decent ring pack to go with. Just thought I would throw this out there to see if there's any interest in a possible group buy... I should have pricing and other details tomorrow, so I'll pass those along as I get them. Cheers, Jonathan
  11. All that chrome trip is really going to pop against that beautiful dark blue paint! Congratulations on a VERY significant milestone!
  12. Rabin - thanks for the further info, good to know!
  13. Bill - Thanks for your help, I must have read the original post in a hurry, and I thought the P code was the Torsen...
  14. Hi, was looking at this old thread which supplies the differential codes, and the P code means the car is equipped with a Torsen differential. I searched through the forum posts and couldn't really tell if all 505 Turbos (ABS and non-ABS) were equipped with these diffs. Can anyone comment? I took a pic of the code (I hope!) on my differential (86 505 Turbo 5 speed), it is EPBM - the second letter, P, indicates my car has the Torsen diff. Is that correct?
