Vehicle Overview

The car has had fairly good treatment over the years. Things like belts, hoses, and sparkplug wires seem new. It has some problems with codes 33 and 34 showing. I have replaced the MAF sensor relays, but have not tested the results yet. I am putting in a detachable steering wheel using an NRG unit and wheel. Once it is running well I want to chasis dyno test it. Then instal a SuperRam with manifold, test again. It seems stupid to have a 350 cid engine but not get 400 hP out at the wheels.

Future Plans

Install Accel / Lingenfelter SuperRam air induction and Accel manifold to try for 400 HP at the wheels. Instrumentation will need to be replaced to be able to see RPM and MPH beyond the standard gages. A new larger throttle body and higher flow injectors will be required. Autocross and open track days are what interest me.
