That's pretty good.

I'd like to test it with a better vacuum gauge to find out what's really going on.

Which intake manifold were you using and which are you using?

IIRC, my vacuum went up when I swapped my B21F intake on. The K cam dropped it 3in

B-cam and then A-cam. Same intake manifold on both engines. Same boost gauge on both. This engine has either a b or a t. Haven't opened it.

Baby got winter shoes...

Fronts BFG Momentums in 195-70-14 @ 36 psi Michelin Agillis rears 4 ply / 8 ply rating @ 50 psi.

At 25.65" Ø the tach is 2500 at 65mph with the 354's.

Rolls like a bat out of hell now, and shrugs off the potholes like a champ.

Where do you take the lumber wagon that he/she needs such winter attire?

Edit: where's the tread pic?

Wherever the road may take me without fear of potholes, or hydroplaning.

He's a stick shift.

Rear tread.

The Momentums aren't as knarly, but they roll pretty well too.

A size hard to get ahold of too. I still run 195/75 R14's here those are almost the same circumference as those 185R14's.

I have one question: What did you do with all of the wider newer door bump strip trim that this car had on page one and doesn't have on page 33? And is it available to buy?

Cute dog. Going through your build thread and it's answering a lot of my Q. Is this the stance one can expect from IPD wagon lowering springs? With a small drop like this, did you need the adjustable pandhard bar and torque rods?

btw - thanks for the window scrapers, installed one side so far and it got too hot to do the other but makes a big difference in aesthetics.

It was just OK so I sold it for $80 on here pretty quickly.

No actually that's slightly raised up on 79GT springs and old style IPD overloads on the back.

It would be silly to limit the places I can go, the obstacles I can crawl over, and the loads I can carry with 'aesthetics' / crippling of lowering springs.

Ah, ok. Looks good! I'm trying to decide to lower mine or not.. leaning to not and just replacing springs with standard ones. As I like big squishy / comfortable rides.

They don't really 'wear' out unless you consistently overload a wagon and sag the rear springs.

Well I suppose you could sag sedan rear springs too if you had enough lead in the trunk or trailer tongue weight.

That said, 240 Turbo springs are slightly stiffer, so if you happened on a set of those it might be worth the trouble of swapping them in.

The IPD belly pan is back on as well.

Photobucket

I thought there should be an air guide between the front bumper and radiator support. Now I know what they look like.

I'm so glad I've not uploaded anything there in about 10 years. Still, I have 1500 odd images to download and rehost. Looks like Redwood Chair is in even worse shape
