What do you lot think, clean enough for a 22 year old Ford?

pyramid 09-02-2014 08:18 PM

Colonel Sanders 09-02-2014 08:28 PM

:lol: Yeah but it looks nice for heel toe double clutch downshifting :cool: Which btw is extremely easy to do in Saturn SLs.

Those 3800 series engines are fucking go-getters. They take so much damn abuse. Nice find for under 5K. Looks clean!

I think you're thinking of the GM supercharged 3.8 (aka 3800 Series II Supercharged etc.) This was Ford's answer to that engine, although only the Ford one got put into something RWD and available with stick. Hence instantly making it the only one worth a damn :D

This 3.8 SC in 89-93 cars was rated at 210hp @ 4000rpm and 315lbs ft @ 2600rpm. Basically it's like a freaking diesel from the factory in terms of power band. The optimum shift point is around 4800rpm, it's ridiculous. On the other hand it has metric shit-tons of torque. It's pretty easy to see like 350-370 toarks to the wheels with bolt on mods. Getting them to "breathe" higher up takes a lot more work though, e.g. ported heads, bigger cam, etc.

Unfortunately they were also known to blow headgaskets. It's almost a sure thing that a stock one will eventually blow a head gasket. Thankfully I won't have to worry about that on this car though.

Anyhoo... He'll be sending me photos as he progresses in the build so I can post them here. Holy shit, actual content?!?!?!

[QUOTE=lollersk8s;25375905]lol wtf

everyone uses fobs now but I guess it could conceivably come in handy

I was at trader joes the other day and this chick locked herself out of her car :lol: so for people like that? Also kids, ie go get a juice box out of the minivan but dno't lose the keys.....[/QUOTE]
We have a fob as well but the keypad does come in quite handy. I use it WAY more than I expected.

Examples:
* Outside in yard, need sunglasses, I can use the keypad to get them.
* At the beach/event/etc, I can lock the keys in the car instead of taking them with me.
* Wife has the keys, I can still get in.
* A few times the wife and I have traveled we end up on strange schedules, I leave the car at the airport and she can pick it up after returning from a flight.

Sounds like my old L98

Pretty great for a tow truck :p but in a y body it's kind of retarded so if I kept it long enough I'd have gone Lt1 intake or something.

That actually seems pretty cool. I always hate bringing my keys and then worrying about them getting wet or lost.
