Scoob gave a good list to get the car back to good reliable running condition. It is hard to resist, but before doing anything to improve performance, get it perfect in stock form. Get a handle on tuning, a power logger with a wideband is essential. Really get to know how everything works. To me it is worth the journey, so just a recommendation.Alright, I’m following along. Adding the MAF, translator, timing chain/gear, header repair, and lines/hoses. I’d be fine leaving the setup as is, but since that’s not an option I figured I’d go “warm” with the build, nothing too extreme. For instance I’m not aiming for a power level that will require a built trans and all.
Looks like my project just grew a couple grand but that’s the way the cookie crumbles. I love this thing, I want to reflect that in the build.
