Ride Rating


Originally a 2.3L LX that I've done a 5.0L conversion to.

-Koni sport Struts and shocks
-MM front and rear control arms
-MM C/C plates
-8.8 rear axle w/Detroit TruTrac diff and 3.55 gears
-Infloor Subframe connectors
-DIY Torque Arm and panhard bar
-Modified stock k-member (raised control arm pickups)
- MM bumpsteer kit due to the above mod
-5 lug Cobra Brake kit using SN95 spindles -Magnaflow 2.5" catback
- WC T5 transmission

It had a 351W with Weiand Stealth 4bbl but I kind of destroyed it through my stupidity. Currently running a low compression (8.4 to 1) 302 w/factory 4bbl intake, 600cfm Holley w/vacuum secondaries and factory '84 iron heads aka a gutless turd (it's not that bad but there's never enough power, right?)

The plan is to repair the rust damage, build a proper replacement 351W engine for it and convert it to EFI via Megasquirt.

Behold, a wimpy C/P Car!
