How To LS Swap A Porsche 944 – Part 71


but in the meantime we’re going to use
our new porsche lug nuts which are
conical fancy okay yeah I know right
here lose you so stupid and go go go go
go go go go go go it’s a race it’s a
race it’s a race to race it’s a race and
you’re losing you’re losing
Hello, and welcome back to Speed Freak
Garage, home of PowerSports on YouTube!
so our goal today is to actually get the
car on the ground so there’s four to do
items we’re gonna connect their fuel
return line real quick so we don’t have
to worry about it dragging around then
we’re gonna do the steering rack that
should be straight forward should be and
then the skid plate half-ass yes so do
the return line real quick scary as hell
to cut this thing just because if I cut
it too short oh man
not good so what I want to do is I want
to like give it some wiggle room that
way it’s not in a binder all right but
I’d also don’t want it rubbing on this
right so I’m thinking like that maybe a
little tighter like that two times mark
isn’t very good yeah I’m thinking like
that maybe a little tighter cuz it’s
gonna be
I don’t really have Oh kind of stuck
yeah it’s not gonna there you go
don’t cut my finger off okay what
they’re beautiful
okay then hopefully this hose clamps the
right size find out I forgot to bring
the dish soap
wow that metal is really flexible I’m an
idiot
god damn it hey just undo the hose clamp
yeah shouldn’t ya making sure it’s on ah
see that’s gonna how am I gonna keep I
guess I could zip tie that to the in
inlet hose later cuz I’m the last thing
I want is a touching this sure it’s
instead of unscrewing fuck let’s throw
that one away then Chinese Chinese shit
yep there goes coulda saved herself a
lot of time if I had just not been a
retard though yeah exactly I think that
was the very beginning of our problems
the fact that I chose a German car oh I
admit it a fucking huge mistake to
choose a German car in general any
German car but now I can’t get the hose
clamp to start
let it go okay
fuck yeah I can’t see shit when all this
hose clamp might be too big for this
that other one was too small I don’t
think so
are you fine see right about there man
is kind of scary how fucking cheap and
flexible the wall of the car is
how tight should I get it no it’s just a
return line so doesn’t have to be like
crazy I don’t know that’s that’s digging
in about halfway I’d say that’s pretty
good yeah I guess worst case it blows
off and we gotta clean up the mess mmm I
wouldn’t think you’d catch on fire
unless it somehow goes over the
transaxle to the exhaust that’s his boot
bye-bye brakes yeah roached time for new
brakes then scale the vehicle yeah okay
all right it’s during wreck yeah
steering acts been hiding over here for
a while
okay so wait what is this
tough fuck oh this is this is the bolt I
use to get new bolts from McMaster get
some industrial grade bolts perfect and
I actually had forgot I’d done that so
when I got an extra box of bolts I was
like what the fuck is going on and I
remembered and I was like oh 13 of
course mm-hmm freshly charged battery I
think this is just going into aluminum
so we have to be a little careful so
this one’s trash now okay and then these
one is for passenger ones for driver oh
I see yeah there’s
just one of the concerns I have as far
as a manual is there’s only one thrust
and the other ones only a locator so
we’ll see how that works out off-road if
it’ll hold up or if I’ll have to get
polyurethane but the guy that the
machine shop said that he didn’t
recommend polyurethane because it would
be so tight that it would actually break
this so I’m glad I’m glad I told him I
was building a rally car I never would
have known that
and then probably would have broke it
okay so bushing is on correct yeah
doesn’t fit fuck
it doesn’t fit it doesn’t fit on either
side I wonder this because it’s maybe
have to stretch it I don’t know that’s a
little concerning though that one fits
why doesn’t this one fit fuck
I’ll have to deal with that later but
you think it’s just caught in the gotcha
gotcha look at the mechanic Harry we can
take it out of this box now my
assumption is once we Center this we’re
gonna have to adjust cuz I think there’s
an adjuster in here oh it snows it’s
only hotter only this yeah this is
permanent permanent correct okay so yeah
these are free I mean obviously we’ll
have to get it a lot well I guess you
could probably do the alignment huh it’s
like I’m fucking riding in this thing
I’m aligned it yeah all right you ready
it should be brand new well it’s like
yeah it’ll be fine at least it’s in
that’s why I bought a full assembly from
him because he wanted the core I was
like look man I don’t want to send you
the core it’s fucking trash I was like I
just want to fresh new new ins new you
know you know everything so that’s what
he did good guy a really good guy
oh great now it’s tight okay here’s been
that nut back a little bit there we go
okay all right ready go ahead put her up
there so that goes up that’s kind of
doesn’t want to go
does not want to go oh I see hold on
it’s got like a is that not clearing the
oh no it’s not clear we just have to
fuck tell me it’s right where the oil
lines are do you want to unzip tie the
oil lines so we can get our it’s like
well how many of a shaft mm-hmm pretty
good god damn it here up and over
yeah I don’t even know if that’ll clear
good damn it
holy shit yeah there’s no fucking way
unless we go down either way we’re gonna
have to cut that I do the right yeah
yeah well let’s cut them off anyway
we’re gonna have to cut them off watch
ahead
I mean I’d rather not have an oil cooler
at all but everybody’s telling me I’d
overheat within about 30 minutes that
full-throttle so much head I don’t want
to risk it alone I know this isn’t gonna
cut easy at least it shouldn’t yeah
that’s what I thought it’s not gonna
cooperate now see what I’m saying to go
down beside it though unzip type of that
yeah I do see what you’re saying
I think that’s never your best bet yeah
thank God we put a heat shield on it
yeah I don’t know if I’m gonna be able
to cut this maybe you have to come back
with some more fiberglass wrap though to
keep it from rubbing the last thing I
need is an oil fire ooh okay so what are
you thinking like that well oh shit man
how did these other guys do it because
I’m not the only one who has used an oil
cooler so that’s gotta be hella what
about up and over this sit in your real
close your exhaust and also I don’t know
where that shaft goes sir is that shaft
come through these yeah
you know if you play my death there’s a
lot of times where you don’t want to rub
on shift
yeah Hiro what can you hold this for me
he’ll stand on a rolling chair that’s
the heads great safety I’m not gonna be
able to get down that way that’s for
sure you should just let me up there I
forgot the seat still I’m mounted
yeah do you want me to run up there no I
got it I got it
you don’t think the shafts directional
oh shit wrong wrong end
Oh hold on it’s got to go on a very
specific direction two fucking wheels
turned oh no god dammit that’s cuz I
thought we were gonna cut it off fuck
shit I’m gonna have to go get the keys
it would be nice just not to have to
fuck with the oil cooler because then I
wouldn’t have to deal with all the
fucking extra work that goes with it oh
well I’ll have to figure it out huh okay
that’s an I’ll have to get the keys
coming down oh fuck this one and put it
on the opposite side for it to get the
right Bend well where are we coming down
with it though because they’re
completely in the wrong I’d like to kind
of do this kind of make an ass with them
because they’re actually to come right
here it’s really close to the manifold
we really don’t have another option you
know wait why can’t I still think we
should bring way above yeah like way way
way up I don’t know come through the top
I don’t know if that’s gonna work how
about this how about this why don’t we
take these off and then we’ll put the
rack in and then put our lines in can we
get them off with out taking the
manifold off yeah surely I don’t know
probably with the rack off we might have
to like half-assed not iraq figure out
where these need to go take the rack out
tighten them up because I can get to him
from right here oh it’s sighs no I don’t
they were big I think they’re in
nineteen think they’re bigger than them
could be 22s if they’re a n I got a one
inch right here I don’t think you’re
gonna be able to fit that or you need to
fit it though oh yeah yeah twenty-two
and a crescent wrench a short crescent
wrench what bigger than an inch
well what the hell we must have used a
crescent wrench then you’re gonna be
able to we take the manifold off we can
take this whole block off but that’s a
pain and a dick yeah that’s a 20-7 or a
ninja now sixteen geez well that was it
just moved just moved it wasn’t even
tight didn’t look are we gonna do take
the oil cooler block off I can get it
off and just won’t be able to get it
back on because we won’t be able to
torque it yeah I got this fancy my week
to shower and then do deeper well I
don’t know what’s I don’t remember what
the size was not a six apparently
couldn’t be a five that wouldn’t make
sense
– five could be a fine though it makes
sense
it’s fuck
yeah what
Oh
mmm
yeah tell me about it
like everything for shows from the
simple install to your complex install
yeah yeah you’re right this is too
shallow well not on this side though
luckily can you
Hey
and the other side we can get with the
normal ratchet though yeah
fuck
you know I’ll never get get that torqued
back up with the manifold in the way
that sucks because I really did not want
to take the manifold off again how much
of a pain in the dick it is
oh it’s up on the lift arm on the
driver’s side because I was working on
the seats
yep
get a bag for this for the oil cooler
fuck I never really thought about that
fucking steering rack being in the way
we couldn’t try to and we could try to
run the car without the oil cooler it
would get the car done and probably a
month ahead of time but I don’t know it
would really last we’d probably have to
go back and redo it anyway it’s too bad
you can’t like run the oil cooler
I think up and over I don’t see any
other way to do it honestly and we
probably have to get another 45 degree
fitting
where are you going with them yeah we’d
have to get another 45 degree fitting
yeah yeah why cuz look this one’s a 90
think it’d make a big difference we get
a
I have more fittings either laying
around here somewhere
see it doesn’t even want to sit right
like that well it’s because we had it
pressed against the wall well that work
yeah I think that’ll work we just need
to get a 45 degree fitting cuz right now
you’re putting too much pressure on the
line see what I mean I think you
underestimate what we had on it already
because we had it pressed like that so
that way of us against I know but I’m
talking about I have more fittings
Brandon it would only take a few minutes
I mean we’re not gonna do it right now
we need to focus on getting the car to
the shop but so you want to leave it
here for test fitting crisis no just
take it completely out
caught on something just have to take
the exhaust off in order to get it
installed I wouldn’t even be twerking it
hmm I wouldn t be twerking I’ll be
taking that wrench to 100% what’s worst
thing can happen to know make a little
bit of oil
well yeah you over tighten it and then
it pulls the threads out and then the
whole engine block shot or heard it
where did you put it oh you’re crazy
okay
okay all right steering rack oh wait no
hold on we got to unlock the unlock the
okay yeah I need to get myself up there
huh bullshit just about did the splits
okay there we go all right
okay try this again so the little rubber
things are like tapered to go in the
there you go you don’t want to put that
one in there yet though it’s basically
can you get to the right now no it’s got
to go a specific way I see it got it
yeah
see the flat spot and I just barely
clear those manifolds
what’s going on
going through or what size of that
gotcha yeah god damn that’s close
let’s just kind of crossed in there now
that’s it’s crossed
can you janaka’s so we’re gonna knock
the bottom in a little there you go
that’s that’s good that should be chewy
sure just shitty threads now there it
goes
doesn’t want to doesn’t want to close
much gap not much
Hampton suck in every time yeah
it’s about 60 foot pounds right there is
that one closed up yep got to hold the
back with a wrench there’s a little
wiggle room up top yeah I mean it may be
let me grab the right wrench you think
13
I mean if it’s if the pin is in the Pens
in right do it
yeah I get what you’re saying but custom
rack on a car that’s been supposedly
looks like it’s been wrecked yeah these
aren’t this isn’t a 13 I’m a can you
hand me a 10 and I need a way longer
extension or twelve shit sorry I tried
twelve well both twelve
yeah it’s twelve
and can I get the big extension thank
you sir
what the fuck are you kidding me sink
you’re right
ya know I’m so confused thirteen
fuckstick here I don’t know what the
hell is going on don’t ask me and don’t
ask I don’t know
how I’m gonna hold the damn thing though
like that I guess okay here you go
let her eat let me know if you I need to
rotate it or anything assuming these go
down depends on which way they’re
tapered Oh them bow it’s got to go down
I mean look at the angle No
no you’re right though I could
technically go either way actually
because the suspensions drooped yeah but
the problem is okay we need to see which
way the taper is and these should tell
us
okay well judging by this huh cuz I’m
there’s a washer or something there hmm
don’t remember any I think that’s from
the nut coming off there’s no way it
comes from the top because it’s tapered
alright let’s see if I can get it to go
in this way yeah that’s good this way
nice – where does I say this it won’t go
in the other way right you might as well
might as well torque it down how do you
even torque a castle nut though cuz
that’s what I meant that’s what I meant
here bring that another Oh doesn’t say
bring it over here so I can size it
so I got my wire off with my fingers I
guess I’m stronger than you this means I
use my fingers more okay not focus that
well oh man
the hole isn’t in the right spot what do
I do oh boy
just need to rotate it a little bit
perfect new problem what put it in from
the other side or just bend it I’ll let
you handle that how about that let’s do
that do you know the way got all the
bushings in this car
fucking god-awful Kate back on safety
mode to start
perfect okay and fun there works
I don’t know what you do with it oh I
third wake for this job yeah more don’t
you know it was like oh no I didn’t
realize he he was supposed to include
new cotter pins god damn
what about wire tie I have wire tie I
don’t know if that’s strong enough you
just use the wire tie what’s wrong with
that
no whoo it’s kind of fucked up it’ll be
fine
just bend it bend it good so it doesn’t
like you know
damn it is fucked up though huh ooh
that’s interesting
oh it’s all that grease and shit in
there like vacuum yeah that’s not good
we need to do something about that right
oh I don’t know what to do about it
there we go take the boot off and the
boot yeah I mean that’s good Wow come on
okay
is it me or should there be zip ties
around all this boot to keep it on yeah
good luck with that no I’m not gonna be
able to get it back on okay I give up
I’ll let you do that little zip tie the
other one no yeah they’re not tired at
all
do it
I don’t know why that wasn’t yeah
how does that one sit okay I really
can’t even tighten the zip tie that
tight I think it’s more just a backup no
I should go in the groove like that
right oh that’s all yeah yeah
well wait do it do it the other way 180
the way it’s tucked back in the back
here James
okay
yep nice
I wonder how on the lined and/or
uncentered the fucking steering hub is
how bad is it
yeah oh man are we even gonna be able to
get it on a trailer this one has a
completely different than the other one
yeah yeah well let’s do that off-camera
let’s yeah I’ll do that on camera
everything else okay so Brandon got it
aligned so the skid plate the mounts are
first so this mount goes Oh hmm problem
is I don’t know if it’s gonna clear the
radiator we’ll find out the hard way
yeah tell me about it
all the bolts and shit are here
so was it the same guy okay yeah yeah
Wow
no even know this is gonna
how deep did he do that
need to find better bolts than this here
you can go ahead I would put this back
one on first Brandon that one will
definitely fit no idea no clue
damn that’s the right bolt I don’t know
if I have a
of course it won’t how convenient
oops
don’t worry about washers that it
gore-tex gonna have to completely redo
it anyway to space it out for the new
oil pan and stuff I mean I would just
hand tight it I wouldn’t even snug it
great I got to drill out this
step drill go
see this bolt head is probably a hmm oh
yeah fun fun
jairs came back and
nope
no still fuck I don’t even think the
bolt head will fit in there
he’s fucking kidding me give me a break
I don’t know if I can get that bolt head
to fit maybe
I wouldn’t I wouldn’t tighten them in we
might have to take it back out and put
spacers in it
fuck
god damn it I don’t have the right bolts
fucking bolts aren’t gonna fit they mean
that the tube is smaller than the
fucking bolt head really stupid shit
that would never hold up to an impact
I’m just gonna have to drill them out
and go get different bolts that don’t
have a flange head and they should just
barely fit well they’ll have to be I
guess Allen heads so I can actually get
okay swag and things really dull cuz I
had to use it to drill a bunch of holes
when we built the shop yeah for the
antenna for the oh you were there for
that god what am i nightmare okay she
probably isn’t gonna fit I’m not sure
just yet what doesn’t fit like I thought
well yeah I mean it’s so fucking wrong
sighs now that it’s gonna probably gonna
have to be completely remade probably
have to go get spacers and space it out
for the time being one turn the camera
off so I can vacuum okay so apparently
Porsche is special and one of the bolts
is an m12 by 1.5 which is a non-standard
yeah it’s fucked ardent so I have to
order the bolts on mcmaster and that’s
just for a temporary test fit so I have
to waste money just to test fit the
goddamn thing but in the meantime we’re
going to use our new Porsche lug nuts
which are conical fancy all right here
lose you so stupid
three four five
6:7 or pie crust eight probably nine ten
and go go go go go go go go go go it’s a
race it’s a race it’s a race to race
it’s a race and you’re losing you’re
losing it’s cuz I don’t have to stand a
chance I need a driver I need a driver
ooh there uh 19 Kiki Kiki what are you
accusing me of cheating
hey I’m winning this race man the one
race I get to win what what what I do
what wait did I put the tires on the
wrong nah they don’t have sides cleaning
your basically done cheeky son of a
bitch
no no no did you put the grab the center
cap for that one I can’t believe I lost
a race a race after cheating it’s over
here right here what day there you go
it’s a good one wait did they give me
extras nice
probably need air grants it not too much
air because they’ll probably fucking
explode in the more air the easier it’ll
be to get on the tire though or get on
the trailer get on the tire what you
know what I meant
how much clearances there did that oh
that one’s cross ready oh boy do I need
to get a tap and drill they send me a
bad nut no fuck
take the wheel back off and get a tap
there’s a mood bad I see something in
there just
okay I’ve got two extra nuts put them
with the rest of the lug nuts huh sucks
we can’t even put it on the fucking
ground okay all right let’s do our exit
here thank you guys for watching and
we’ll see you next time
