Chopped!

Postby 2nejunkie » Thu Jan 19, 2012 1:10 pm

Just a quick PS of the top and wheels. I would like to find a place to make 18s of the stock 16s.

Where the hell have you been?

How are you going to lower the seats? There is not much head room in these cars anyway. Just asking.

I am yet to start the tear down, But I think I should be able to lower the seats 3/4 to 1". I am still reading up on glass cutting.

Engine (stock) runs fine on small turbo 60 A/R compressor. I think it may be time to start thinking V8 or the ol' Z34 OHC 3.4 I think they are twin dual but I dont remember. I had a 91 3.4 in the Lumina Z34. Stock 225HP.
I am looking to go for the "Rat Rod" look.

so your going to rip out a 180hp quad 4, in favor of a swap that will cost you tons of time and a chunk of change, you know w41 cams, cai, header, 7400rpm chip, and a few other small things will put your quad in like the 210 range and probably not even cost you $1,000.

yep, they also said rwd wasnt doable, awd isnt doable, 3500 seemed like a far fetched idea at one point, 3800's werent doable... anything can be done with $$$ and time.
