I bought this in Dec. '05 to replace my totalled 91 sunbird. What a great replacement this has turned out to be. the wreck was a blessing in a good disguise.....

I got this car for 900 bucks. what a steal, eh? it has run a best of -

15.99 @ 83mph in the 1/4 mile *old news*
14.99 @ 92mph
14.84 @ 92mph
14.71 @ 94mph

Dyno'd 191hp @ 5600RPMs and 202 ft/lbs @ 4500RPMs, which pushed it to a 14.71 pass @ 94.54 mph. Ran that with a 2.07 60 foot time on BFG drag radials.

The built motor is IN, with much trouble and compromise.... but it is in, and it runs, and it drives :D it's got the lope, hehehe. vids (still) on the way).

Dyno'd it again a couple weeks ago with the good motor, 224whp and 219ft/lbs, still needs some tuning, it has some small driveablility issues on the street, but i've been driving it for about 3-4 weeks now with no major issues. got rained out + an ignition issue when i went to the track after the dyno, so i need to get out there again, 2 weeks tops for that....


3400 V6 est. 200hp 220lb/ft
HM-282 5 speed manual transmission
2940lbs with me in it : )

I've got it down with a stock 3400, ran a 14.71 @ 94.54 on BFG drag radials, but that's all out the window now, i have to completely re-learn to race this car with the new motor in it..... cam + ported heads and intakes = crazy wheelspin
