Going to weld the diff when I put the new engine in. If I don't like it after that I'll do something about it.

Looks like a ton of progress! I can't believe you're going to have that monster in the 244! Time to apply for a tire sponsor!

I'll be running my smaller one, I think it's a 19mm. I will also put the front in soon too probably. The 25 is great for kicking the rear out, but I already don't think it will be that hard with the 25MM. And if I go any stiffer on the rear springs ( I think they are 250's, with the shorter Bils Sports) it will become even more apparent that the rear is slidey.


And on another note, NICE progress!

I'm running no rear bar now with 25mm front. I'm going to try a 19mm in there

car is fantastic as always, smith... kinda getting tired of saying it. :P

how nice your car is keeps me motivated to keep working so i can try to get mine at least somewhat close...

Well, picked up a new engine for this car this weekend as most of you know. If not, you will recognize it soon enough. Needs a few little odds and ends, like an air filter that flew out of the back of the truck!

Needs to be broken in, so 1,000 miles or so. Planning to do this on LH 2.2 and then switch to ECMlink or MS.

Also bought a T5 trans. Need the driveshaft, ds adapter, and a shifter. Going to look into the electric speedo with it.

I have heard the pro 5.0's are pretty smooth shifting wise.

Hmmmm, the next level . . .



Order a bunch of parts to get this thing running ASAP!

And some cosmetic changes. Got rid of the cracked trim under the windows. The 3M pin stripe remover wheel worked great. Also am going back to coffinhood. Don't care to shell out $250 for a flathood grille right now.



Thanks for the help this weekend Gabe & Tom! Good times.

Had a blast working on this car this weekend! A couple pictures for the purpose of documentation... late into the evening, when we were all quite tired

Let's just say the UPS man will be sick of pulling in my driveway. Parts incoming! Can't work on it this weekend but next weekend should get some work done.

Tom, please recommend a set of rims for this car, 17 or 18. I like your style. Say 5x120 but I don't want to restrict you.

I'll do something thinking on it. I usually look at stuff for either 242 or 245, so I'll do some looking at 244's. What works well for each body is a littttttle bit different.

if its me, you know it's gonna be 5x120. i assume this isnt a big hurry, right?

Joel, I will be up north otherwise I would be there. . . well maybe I would be working on this car instead! But yeah. . .

Tom, get what you're saying. I think this is going to become a hurry sooner rather than later. Those 205s are not going to be what I want. Granted I have a 1k mile break in to suffer through.


Was thinking about a remote oil cooler set up today. Something like summit sells, but then could I mount the 240 turbo oil cooler sandwich plate to the remote filter base with a longer nipple and then have lines to the oil cooler?

I was thinking more along the lines of... before the car drives vs. once the car is driving

about oil cooler stuff in conjunction with remote filter....

that seems pretty logical to me... only thing that comes to mind that would be an issue would be clearance around the holset. you would likely need to use 90deg ends on the remote filter base to clear the turbo
