Re: What is an average cost for a Z26?

Depends on what you’re looking for.

Rust free? Well maintained? Clean body/paint?

Typically clean cars go for around $2-3k.

You didn’t happen to live in Michigan when you ordered yours did you?

Re: Indy pace car graphics and repair manual

How much for the graphics? Is it the full set or just the door decals and the dash plaque?

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

New mounts (92-96 style) welded in - not my best work but not terrible considering the engine was still in the car. I’ll get pictures once everything is cleaned up and painted.

Started pulling apart the Cavalier trans to get the guts out for a case swap.

Torsen love!

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

You and me both... I bought a 92 3.1 Beretta trans thinking it was an internal slave, sight unseen (it had 45K on it and was cheapish). When I got it, I got the trans pictured above with the green circle, and it had one of the 92+ mounts on it still. This tells me that 93 was the only year V6 Berett...

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

It’s the diff and upgraded internals - supposedly strengthened to handle 900 HP.

I want to use the Cav trans as it uses the internal slave.

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

It’s always something... So I got the transmission out of the Alero and looked it over closely; hmm, how are those 5spd mounts supposed to bolt to it? The trans is from a 94 Cavalier, which doesn’t have provisions for the front 5spd mount in the casting. The rear mount bosses are there, but only 1 o...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

So for some reason the bulbs I bought were already sticking out straight from the bulb instead of the 90 degree swing that the stock bulbs had, which is why I didn't remember any issue.

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

I'll look on my car, but I don't remember having that issue. I may have noticed it when I cut the header panel and made appropriate cuts to compensate for it.

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

Thanks for the tip; I’ll probably use them next time around as right now I’m just putting everything together, if it needs paint, I’m using what I have in the garage instead of powdercoating/ceramic coating to save time and costs.

I’ll get things done the way I want when I build the forged block.

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

Didn’t get as much done on the Z as I wanted to, but I got work done on the Alero that I need the trans out of, so I guess it’s a step in the right direction.

I did get the coil overs fully assembled and torqued down, and laid out a few of the parts I hope to get onto the car next weekend...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

Get a new motor mount, then get the polyurethane insert from here: http://www.rksport.com/product-p/rk-507.htm

That should help with your situation!

Did moving the strut shaft have any impact on its rebound?

Re: Not your average Z26... a resurrection

Awesome. It looks like you found off-the-shelf parts for everything except the top plate that bolts in to the strut tower? Is the threaded sleeve just a slip fit over the strut housing tube, or is it secured somehow? Just curious, it's a sweet setup. I'll get P/N's and links to everything I ordered...
