Aside from the 88TC mill and the T5 swap none.
Its a 10psi mild daily driver. Its still 50X faster than the NA 2.3 auto I chucked out of it.
I need to keep it dependable so it'll stay mild. I have the 70 Fairlane for the fun stuff
Yes, the 2.3 NA is very
slow!!! One of the great things about turbo engines is that many 'upgrades' increase hp #'s, but don't affect the drivability. Intercooler upgrade, turbo upgrade, ect won't affect your 'parking lot manners'. When I sold my car, I had it set to run 28 psi on pump gas (the long block was 100% stock ---> lots of restriction). The guy I sold it to upgraded the injectors (I had it setup with a fifth injector), put MegaSquirt on it, and some drag radials and ran 12.30 on his first visit to the track with the car. Remember, it had a 100% stock long block w/ 100k+ miles.
Nice truck In The background there
Yes, that was another college vehicle
. That truck was 110% Redneck, but my girlfriend (now my wife) loved it as much as I did. Half the grill was black, half the grill was silver. One mirror was chrome, one mirror was black. It had one semi-sized mud flap, but the other was missing...
When I was in college, I lived in an ethnically and financially diverse (PC?) neighborhood. I stood out like a sore thumb
Interestingly, that truck was a 3/4 ton shortbed. At some point, somebody put the short bed on it and sectioned the frame.
Have a good day!
