So I started out here feeling around what I could do to a 2.6 auto after putting it on the dyno and was quickly convinced to go m104 swap and standalone. Unfortunately, I have no interest in motor swapping with an automatic. Fortunately, I found an 84 eight valve with a 5 speed and jumped on it. Here we go...
Anyone have any input on the spoiler. It's a Zender but I haven't seen many of this style. I'll have to get a better picture.
I bought it not running and the guy didn't know why just that no fuel was getting to the distributor. Got it running that same day. He wired in a new fuel pump backwards... HA
Shipped over a set of BBS RX 17 inch wheels with what's left of some sticky NT01 Nitto tires from turb0mik3 on this forum. Thanks again.
Also bought and installed the H&R Touring Cup Kit and lost the chrome. Here's a before and after.
The 2.6 lingers in the background there. That one has a broken radiator bracket mount. It's a 93 and the whole thing's totally rusted through. When it finally gave way the radiator dropped and dragged the lower radiator hose into contact with one of the pulleys which sliced a hole through it. I managed to find a replacement that day though, not from the dealer.
I can't imagine this helped at all...
That one's going to hang in the pits for a while. I still need to give the blue benz a good wax job. Every horizontal surface is faded but according to a test spot I did, it should clean up nicely. I also need to find a solution for the skirts which are in rough shape around the jack points.
