1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS
1988 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Super Sport
Head to Head
I bought this car 10 years ago. It was nice inside, but kind of a rat outside. The first thing I did was change the 14" wheels to 15". I pulled the 305 and installed a 350 about 6 or 7 years ago. I swapped out the peg leg 2:41 rear with a 3:73 Posi. The body was completely redone about 3 years ago and painted a stock color in base coat, clearcoat. I have added modifications over the years, little by little. The latest addition was the 16" ZQ8 wheels and Firestone tires. Like all "hobby cars", it will never be done. There is always something to be done that makes it just a bit unique.
About “The SS”
This car is my baby, she gets what she wants all the time LOL.
My wife was actually the one that always wanted an SS as a friend of her family had one years ago and she always wanted one.
We bought this car with the stock engine in it and it didn't take long for me to take care of that.
I did the TPI swap on this car myself with a custom engine harness and chip. When I did the TPI swap I added a stock L-98 350 roller cam nad lifters to the stock engine to add a few ponies to the car.
While doing the TPI swap I also converted to a serpentine belt setup which switched the alternator and AC compressor side to side which meant finding AC lines which would allow me to keep the AC.
I know I don't need the cowl induction hood with the TPI, but the hood was on the car when we got it and I love the way it looks on the car.
