Picked up a center console from a friend so now I have a matching interior

The car it came out of was totaled and you can't tell how nasty it was when I got it but...

I also got a good headliner that came out of the same car. It came out of a 89 so it has the swivel map light so I need to drill a couple holes to mount it so there isn't a gaping hole in the front of the headliner lol.

I ditched the stop FPR and installed an adjustable FPR and pressure gauge yesterday......it seems to run smoother now. I did notice that it picks up a little more above 5k.

I set the fuel pressure at 43 with the vac line off so it drops to about 35-38ish..I don't remember exactly...

Well I decided to ditch the mechanical oil pressure gauge that I had out on the cowl today and picked up a stock sending unit so my gauge in the cluster works....

I got tired of the sun light reflecting off of it at times and blinding the **** out of me....then last night after I got my tach light working again I was getting annoyed by having an extra lit gauge on 3 different sides of me...tach on the right, oil pressure in the middle and my temp gauge to my left..

Well everyone I am happy to announce that the 93 made it on the 1200 miles across the country with no issues under its own power! I got a best of 24.7mpg so I am pretty happy with how it turned out.

Now that I am back in Indiana the weather is about to the point where it is time to park the car for the winter and cover it up..... This is the one thing I wasn't looking forward to with this move lol. I probably won't park it for good until the ice hits so once they start throwing down the salt and sand it done for the winter.

There really isn't much else to do with the rebuild now that I have a complete car....the interior is complete, it is now has a good running EFI motor, and its definitely reliable..The wife even tried getting me to let her drive it to the store yesterday and she would NEVER ride in it lol....that was a definite NO

Anyway, like I said the car can't get rebuilt from the dead much more so I am now gonna stop posting updates on this thread but I will leave it open for the rest to reply!!

Thanks for the support everyone!!!

Great story your car came out of the grave and looks good and reliable ! I wish I had the skills to do all the things you did to that car....

Thanks.

I didn't have to replace any of the wiring. The front end had been fixed before I got the car and every thing worked but I had to go REDO their body/frame work. Since you don't have a working knowledge of the wiring you need to replace the whole harness.

good **** man. I think the 1,200 mile trip, and all the daily driving is a good cap to this entire build, show's your work is reliable.

Wish mine would stay together for more then 750 miles

Stop? ****.....thats why the car has been built! lol The car has been smashed and tweaked multiple times so I am going to hammer on it more and more till it can't take no more! lol It will end up having a road racing cage in it....or at least the start of one....

The next motor to go into this car will be a EFI 351w so its gonna get hit even harder than it does now lol.....



I guess I can't blame it on how hard I beat on the car but it wasn't there until after I got back here.....I didn't beat on it on the trip up but on the way to and from a local club meet I beat the holy hell out of it screwing with oatburner and another local friend of ours.....

Snatching 3rd gear from 5th at 70+mph (4500-5500rpm depending on the cruising speed....5500 is fine bc the motor pulls to 6k) puts alot of strain on the car, more than most of the peoples on here, not because my motor has alot of power because that's not the case, its the fact (at least this its my reasoning) that I run a 3 link suspension instead of the stock 4 link and with that geometry change my springs are not as stiff as they should be. So my car twists and moves around a little more than it should.

IDK just rationalizing why the ripple, tweak, distortion....what ever you want to call it is there.... If I remember I will ****** a couple pics of it later

Well I installed a B cam earlier this summer.....bought some slicks and ran a 13.20 bogging off the line...started building a ram air setup for it....fixed the dented cowl from the hood coming up....had to get new tires.....ummm.......installed 2.5 tips....and the biggest of all....





developed a nice loud knock a couple days ago....thought it was valvetrain at first but everything is tight...its not a wrist pin....so unfortunately it sounds like a rod in the back 4 cylinders is knocking....

Lol yup...well I got about 30,000 miles out of a bottom end I had $175 in.....the damn thing has 2 mismatched rods and pistons in it anyway lol. 6 are HO setup and 2 are from a 70's engine. 2 of the HO stuff was screwed up when I put the motor together... I just bought a crank kit so I can't complain too much...with how much I have been on this damn thing lol

Just hope I didn't trash the crank lol. That would be nice to still be able to use...


COME ON 351w!!!!!....now....whos got some money I can borrow???? lol
