also, its not as bad as it looks...the paint makes it look hideous (besides the simple fact of the ugliness of the car
), but, once its painted and the interior is put back together (maybe a day to do that), it'll look like a nice car (for an omni...lol).
Engine wise, its sound now...running cool, running well, but, not fast enough for me...so, again with the junkyard parts.....the Eaton M62 supercharger is off of a GM 3800 V6, and is going to be pretty easy to be made to work.
But, the supercharger combined with the better flowing turbo head, hooker long tube header, and 3" exhaust, it should be around 175hp I'm hoping, which was the same as the GLHSs...but...thats being optimistic.
then again, it started with 110hp...ish...it feels like it has that much though, being it actually runs pretty good, and is suprising it has as much power as it does for what it is...
header = 10hp
head = 10hp
exhaust = 10hp so, about 140 now...
then the supercharger, which should add anywhere from 40-50% more power, so, 45% of 140 is about 63hp...so...203hp overall.
Now, thats all rough estimates, but, if that is anywhere near right (which, I think I'm being generous on some things and underestimating others)...but, that would be more than enough for a 2000lb car...lol.
I mean, the 175hp turbo/intercooled GLHSs on street tires were running 14.5 seconds....slicks knocked them down almost a whole second. Thats not bad for a FWD 4 banger
Okay...I'm done with my novel
