well heres a little teaser video from start idle and a couple of revs ! i did get the rear brake line hooked up and adapted to the body, also finished up a few things so all i need now is a shifter and exhaust done to get the last main things done and get my fuel pump issue lined out so i can drive it !

turn your volume down so you can hear the cam better, sorry its so muffled !

here are a few pictures of the car as of right now. i got the exhaust put on it and love it. 3" x pipe into 2.5" super turbo mufflers with turn downs. installed my wide band and have the idle fuel mixture spot on. i have the car drivable but the c6 is shifting very strange.

Your coupe is looking good !
Are you using Turbo Coupe rear axles? I see you have the brakes.

How have your 1.5 inch k-frame spacers worked out for you ?
Also, how much hood clearance do you have under the stock hood?

I bought a 91 coupe Saturday so I have to start on mine soon. Very Happy

so sorry for the late response, for some reason i'm not getting notifications !

the spacers work good, it did make using the stock steering shaft impossible i have pretty good clearance. i have a torker 2 intake with holley 750 drop base air cleaner and still have over an inch of clearance, i can put my old school 125 holley nitrous plate on it and its 1" thick and still have room to close the hood ! and yes i'm using the turbo coupe axles ! man i love your midnight blue coupe...... i had a 93 hatch and wished it was a coupe. my 91 is getting some fresh silver paint maybe next month !

well i took the car to the dump today and weighed it ! ended up being 3260lbs with me in it and i'm 195lbs so its about 3065lbs. not bad considering its still pretty much stock. the only things removed from the car are sway bars rear seat and sound deadener insulation and misc airbag sensors !

i just wanted to let you guys know that i have been having fuel problems and the carb has never acted right since day one. i went to the track 2 weeks ago and had fuel pressure problems, come to find out my tank was rusted and the more i drove it the more rust was stopping up every piece in my fuel system, i have since then put in a new fuel tank installed a bulkhead fitting in the bottom of the slosh tank and flushed my line and cleaned out the fuel pump reg and carb, and bought an 850 to try ! the carb has never felt right when the 4bbl would come in and was very lazy. long story short the fuel pressure would drop to 1-2 psi after i left the line and went to 0 before the 1/8 every run and managed....


1st run 36 deg timing

1.82 60ft
7.87 1/8 et
90.39 mph
12.57 1/4 et
88.06 1/4 mph (let out) checking brakes we have a very short shut down !


2nd run 36 deg timing

1.83 60ft
7.90 1/8 et
90.20 mph
12.25 1/4 et
112.83 mph it about died at the end when i let off because the bowls were dry !


3rd run 32 deg timing

1.87 60ft
7.97 1/8 et
89.97 1/8 mph
12.33 1/4 et
112.46 1/4 mph still about died because of no fuel in the bowls




all in all i can't believe it ran what it did with no fuel pressure. can't wait to run it again with the fresh fuel system and the 850 dp !

sorry for not updating sooner. At the moment the car is in primer almost ready for new titanium paint,new headlights, cowl panel and window tint. since the last runs at the track i have added a 850dp, advanced the cam to +4 deg and added solid lifters to the a443 cam. It feels stronger than it did but not what i think it should be. The engine doesn't feel right and it now has a smoking problem on start up that it didn't have till after i advanced the cam, so i'm thinking it has something to do with the intake gaskets !

Post  mpinder18 on April 29th 2012, 8:52 pm

I have header problems on a 83 502 swap (hooker swap headers). I have an aftermarket k and was looking at your spacers. How much trouble was it to space the k frame?

Better hope that you didn't burn the valves I had a fuel starvation issue one my old 466 and burnt a few valves and wore out some guides, they don't like running out of fuel at 6000rpms!
