First thing you need to do is get rid of the 525. I was running one of those blocks/springs diff. inserts. Even with the equal length and diff. insert, it would change lanes on you on street tires under full throttle in the 1st 3 gears.

I have a real posi that I will install when I get my hybrid 520/555 built.

They can be made quick for cheap. Back when my car was a beater, I was running a stock 1985 long block converted to turbo 2 with an A-520 transaxle out of a Shadow CSX-T. I ran a one piece intake with a stock turbo blowing through a factory Dodge Daytona intercooler. The only aftermarket parts I had were Mopar Performance Super 60 injectors and a K&N air filter. On about 16 pounds of boost, it would run 8.70's @ 81-82 mph (roughly 13.50's in the 1/4) all day in the 1/8th mile. That was on a pair of nearly worn out 20" slicks (23" is ideal).

I bumped it up to 25 psi and the car was a different animal. I overwound the engine bending rod #1 and rattled three pistons while showing off for a friend a week later, so I never did get to try it at the track. I started taking the car apart for the new engine and restoration.

Here's the kicker: I had around $2200 in the car including what I paid for the car itself.

I just wanted to mention...doused the carb with carb cleaner, and the car runs much better now...
and...my clutch was slipping...so, I decided the best way to clear the flywheel of rust was a nice clutch dump....

the old girl spun posi for about 10ft...lol So, I guess it is posi? Although, when its in the air, the wheels spin opposite directions...

Also...the clutch doesn't slip anymore after that...much more responsive now.

Figured I'd update this almost 1.5 years later...lol

The car is in PA now. Pulled the engine and trans for a clutch swap and insane cleaning.

About the clutch...well...it was non existant. Actually, the rivets in the clutch were almost ground all the way down. Yea.......lol

Well...took the oil pan off to replace all the gaskets in the engine and found the rod bearings had a minuscule amount of play, so, I'm getting a rebuild kit for it with new rings, bearings, head gasket, etc. I'd rather it not blow up instantly with the supercharger on top.

And...about the supercharger. Well...the original plan was to go with an Eaton M62 (62ci) supercharger off of a 3.8L v6 running at about 8 psi.

Well. Slight change of plans. I came across an Eaton M90 (90ci) on a Thunderbird Supercoupe...

so...I'm using that now. Under driven, should be running at about 8psi well in its efficiency range. As a matter a fact, the supercharger is so large for the engine and will be underdriven so much, according to Eaton, intake temps should not be much higher than 120 degrees...lol

But, it should be a beast when its back together.

While I have the engine/trans and all out, I'm planning on finishing up the sanding/primer/painting and making her as pretty as she can be...haha.

Oh, and before it left FL, I was driving it around town a little Got a temp tag through the DMV and put about 100 miles on it. Never an issue minus the clutch slipping like crazy...haha. Even got pulled over for having a headlight out Took it through the Wendys drive thru...got all kinds of looks. Actually got a lot of compliments of people saying it just looks like it has something evil about it

Oh...and did I mention it had an open Hooker long tube header on it at the time

But...most recent pictures...


On the way from FL. (Yes I miss the Ram ) Oh...and by the way...its squatting so much because it had an engine/trans, 4 steel wheels, and all my clothes/etc under the bed cover, plus the very front biased Omni which was full of stuff itself...lol

Awesome project! I loved the GLHs back in the day. My mom had a K car with the bulletproof 2.2 in it, and that thing would flat out fly. Had the speedo wrapped back around to 40-45 a few times and the thing only had an 85mph speedo. It gave up the goat at around 300k miles after being beat on by me, then my sister and then my brother.....

Looking forward to seeing where you go with this!

I've had a bunch of turbododges and N/A 2.2's:
5 dodge omnis
85 GLH na
88 Lebaron GTS turbo
88 Shelby Z T2
89 Sundance turbo
89 Plymouth Voyageur turbo
and now the 2 in my sig; my Voyageur was my funnest. Paid $50 for it, swapped in a bigger turbo, intercooler, and 3" exhaust, couple of extra injectors= spanking mustangs. Insane giggling.
