I'm new to the forum and would like to share my 1982 GT project. I actually built this car 2 years ago with very little help and a very tight budget.
- 466 with flat tops
- stock d3 heads
- torker2 intake/850 holley
- generic .520 lift cam
- manual c4 transmission, pa 4000 convertor
- 9" rear with 3.50 gears
- team z rear control arms
- my own motor mounts
- dynatech header kit

Goal was to keep it looking kinda stealthy under the stock hood. It was a success...plus on some shakedown 1/4 mile passes, I was rewarded with numerous 12.0 @ 110 mph time slips with 1.65 60'.

You gotta show us how you got it all under that hood, even with that little "wart" of a scoop! Would love to see some pics.

Will do, but there's no show car bling under the hood...I forgot to add that I made 2" k-member spacers to make everything fit just right.

Even with the mild build and iron heads, I still managed a 1.65 60' with a little air under the front tires.

Nice ride. Never apologize for what it looks like under the hood......pretty don't make fast!
With that MPH, there's high 11s in there. Good luck.

Thanks!
I figured there were high 11's in it, but as it turns out, the transmission was slowly going away...as of right now it's roached!

C4 transmission rebuild

Got up the nerve to do my 1st transmission rebuild...car is all back together and has a few miles on it. So far, all is well!
Modifications include;
- Broader Performance transbrake valvebody,
- Broader Performance modified 6 disk forward drum/clutch pack, and 6 disk intermediate drum/clutch pack with oil modification
- PA hardened input shaft
There are still a few mods that need to be done, but this should handle my current power level and some of the engine mods that I plan in the near future.
