i came up at the tail end of the muscle car era.clss of 76.luckily there were still tons of 67-71 stangs,camaros,mopars ect for cheap!but man o man durring the late 70 and most of the 80 cars were o so borring!a 1976 corvette sting ray with a l 48 350 put out a dismal 160 hp.the newly introduced 78 mazda RX7 with 100 hp rotary would walk those mid/late 70 vettes not to meantion what a 77-78 datsun(nissan) 280 would imbarrans er qr w

The only thing good that came out of the early 80's was the buick GSX what a power house for a v6 turbo that thing blew away all comers of the early and late 80's and late 70's cars

That was more middle-late 80's but yea Grand Nats were one of the best back then!

And they can still kick but today in a straight line.

I've done all the work on it myself except for the paint and aligning the front end.

340 balanced and blue printed
11-1 Arias pistons
etc.

Fiberglass hood and front fenders,had bumpers to but got tired of them this year and bought newly chromed ones on ebay

Narrowed rear end 430 gears

Cars was originally a all drum brake car now has tubular upper control arms and disc's off a 74 dart and 11 inch rear drums off of a Chrysler newyorker.I also replaced the master cylinder with a plastic one from an 80 model dodge and added an adjustable proportioning valve

Had the car since 1981 and change something every year

SVO's were 5-lug stock. :) I plan on getting it running right and pretty fast before I really turn my attentions to the exterior, but it's in the long-distance plan for sure.

I'm not sure on 0-60MPH or top speed, but my pantsometer says low 4's, and 160MPH (based on gearing). I've whooped up all kinds of cars in it.

Here is my Mach 1. I'm the 2nd and the 5th (and final) owner of this one. Bought it the first time in 1977 and again in 1989. Finished it in 1994. Haven't really drove it much over the past few years.

I have a 54 Chevy PU since I was 16, oh man 31 years:sad: I'll get a pic of it. It's been sitting for a few years and I have some plans for it, it already has a sb 350 and auto trans and I consider it more of a Hot Rod than my Z but it will have to do for now.

:supergrin: [/B]

That LT5 sure was a strange collaboration. Imagine Chevrolet, Lotus, and Mercruiser (IIRC) coming together for that one. Have driven a few of the ZR-1 Corvettes, one that had a documented 415HP to the ground, very nice. At least 160 mph, IMO, had a stock ZR-1 to 135 before I knew it. Was having issues with the secondary intake runner plates and between watching the road, the scan tool, and stepping into it to get the plates actuated I forgot to look at the speedo:shocked: .

Finding any kind of parts is a nightmare. I had to replace the serpentine belt, it cost me $75 and a few days of waiting. The GM Parts Dist. Centers don't even stock them.

Other than that, it's cool. I love shutting off the ASR and stomping the piss out of it. :supergrin:

Not bad. My buddy just picked up a '91 RS 5spd that he's going to gut, cage and make into a NASA roadracing car, so I'll probably be learning a little about the "dark side" here in a little while. ;)

thirdgen.org is going to be his best friend. :thumbsup:

The body of mine has about 150k on it and the engine has about 60k on it (I bought it at 89K miles and the engine blew at 93K). :rofl: Fun car for sure.......especially in the rain. :supergrin: But honestly although it can be quick with the TPI it isn't "fast" by any means compared to 90% of the cars in this thread.

Asha'man
09-07-2006, 23:23
He's already on thirdgen, I think his sn is Evil86Saleen. He's had some third gens before he got into Fox Stangs, so he kinda knows what he's doing, but it's always a learning curve. I'm pretty sure he'll eventually be taking out the TPI for the CMC spec carb, which is a Holley 650 (DP?).

I think my SVO is faster, actually. ;)

Before you look at the picture, here are some of the things that have been done:
Motor- Early 80's 350 s/b, line bored, decked, bored .030 over, w/ 400 crank shaft, Comp cam, pistons, rods, comp cams valve train w/ 2.02/1.60 stainless valves, Elderbrock Performer RPM heads, 72cc chambers, ported and polished, Elderbrock intake, ported, motor balanced. (Yeah, I'm forgetting some stuff). The block was powder coated black, the heads powder coated clear, the intake powder coated silver (there was a screw up, this was the best fix), The valve covers are billet specialties, Heart Beat of America, as is the intake cover. These pieces were handed paint red, white and blue, then powder coated clear.
Exhaust- 2 3/4" duals, with Hooker ceramic coated headers, dual flowmasters, Stainless tips. Transmission is a 400 turbo from a suburban, built w/ a shift kit to handle 400 plus HP. Rear end housing is stock 10 bolt, with 28 spline axles from an S-10 p/u, and a posi-traction center section from a Camaro. Drive shaft made for the el Camino, with heavy duty universal joints. A new brake system, discs front/drum rear. Only parts not replace were the metal lines which run front to rear. I could continue, but I suspect I have already lost some of you. The elky is ready for the appearance stuff, soon as money lets me get to it. Oh yeah, I forgot. The computer programs - where you list the parts and it predicts the horse power & torque - estimates 450 hp/ 440 torque. Yes, it does run nicely!

That's a helluva sleeper right there. Were I you, I would get some real-world dyno and track numbers rather than quoting what the horsepower calculators spit out, but it sounds fairly potent either way.

BTW it's "Edelbrock". ;)

grayelky
09-08-2006, 21:31
The dyno thing is on the list. The wife's job got sent to India last December. The daily commute was a bi***, so she got laid off, and is still looking for a replacement. Besides, the motor only has about 700 miles on it. I have 2 pages of stuff that has been done, along with a stack of receipts and about 300-500 pictures documenting the rebuild process. One of my boys wants it painted and fixed up nice, the other wants it left like it is. Like you, he said something about a "sleeper". What about a "before" shot of teh engine?

One day, maybe I will actually spell "Edelbrock" correct the first time. I doubt it, but maybe.:upeyes:
