did you put those wore out GT seats in while the car was down? I really need to get out there sometime. I quit my job and am working overnights again, but I need to plan something. The 245 is still down with rear suspension needs, but this motivates to get it together.

No i put them in the 242turbo then i sold it.

Sucks your working nights, bet your always tired or always wired eh?

And i figured the alt prob out thanks to Mike and Doug K and Nick.

UPDATE!

I finally got to drive the car around the block. She runs pretty good considering there is no map sensor or coolant temp sensor hooked up. Needs tunning for boost bad.

Stuff Kyle needs!
-5 ohm resistor
-a good map sensor
-a thermastat
-soldering skills

Also the down pipe is loose from the turbo.

Hey, at least you got to drive it. Does perfect power not come with a MAP sensor? Do you think you can have it ready by next weekend? Keep at it man, good to see your making some progress

**UPDATE**

The 244 runs.
Perfect power is gone, and back came lh 2.4.
its now sporting a 60/63 T3 with CFI injectors, a 960 AMM and almost 300 miles to a tank, with 15lbs of boost.

The bad: The AW70 is finally ready to give up the ghost and the alternator is held on with a bungee cord.
but it did run a 15.2 in the 1/4 and make it to a volvo meet and back.

More to come later

**** yeah!!! that's awesome to hear! I know you really wanted PP to work, but it's good to see that car still with you and running again. After the first of the year I'll be able to not be at work all the damn time. We need to hit the tampa yard for tranny for you and get **** crackin! I was just thinkin the other day about the first time I ever drove your car, I was laughing hysterically because of how slow it was, good to see it's going in the other direction now.

I am so jealous of your gas mileage. Now, sell perfectpoop to someone quick! Pass the curse.

Update, the car is still alive, just not too healthy.

The engine is running on 3 cyl with low compression across the board, the aw 70 started slipping in and out of gear and started making a death whine, and has belched up most of its atf.

New game plan:

A 93/94 B230f or ft mated to a T5 worldclass transmission, out of a foxbody mustang.

So far all i have, is the transmission, still on the hunt for an engine.

i plan on using a e-bay t3/t4

more to come

Thanks! Its close to all stock on the outside however, I was inspired by a car built by a guy on here named Ralph, who has a 84 242. He removed the trim and welded up the holes, i plan on doing the same. Also Im a sucker for BBS wheels, so they will get refinished. Other then that the outside of the car will not change. I'm more excited about whats going to happen under the hood

Default out with the old

Did some work today.






Now I just need to wash the engine bay and repaint some of it. Also you can see the shiny red block on the engine stand against the wall. I need to send it to a machine shop that they can bore the engine out.
