New From Western MA

Postby Lincoln5oh » Tue Apr 04, 2017 7:18 pm

Hi there! I've owned my 86 LSC since 2012. I'm the 3rd owner, the original owner had it up until about 6 months before. It was %100 original except a strutmasters coil conversion. Since then I've made a handful of modifications and a few passes down the 1/4 mile. So far I've done Mac 1 5/8 shorty headers and full 2.5" exhaust with an O/R H pipe and super 44s leading to factory turndowns at the bumper. That's probably my favorite mod so far because it looks completely factory but it's 2.5". I've also rebuilt the Trac Lok with the carbon fiber clutch kit. Performed a 3G alternator swap. Installed an explorer intake manifold and 75mm TB and solid spacer (no egr or smog) but it has recently doveloped a bad vacuum leak after getting very hot staging at the track. Still managed a 15.9 @87 spinning for 30-40 ft (2.6 60' instead of my usual 2.2x) Since then it has been put away for winter. My best so far was 15.567@88.9. With just the h pipe and cat back and 16* of timing.Works in progress consists of stock 87-92 block studded with an e303 cam and moroso oil pan. Unsure on heads yet. Also a t5 swap and a 150 shot wet kit. Eventually I'd like a set of 190cc 11r Heads with a stock cam and a pro charger. Keep stock drivablility and gobs of power when needed. Overall I'm very excited to me a member here!

Welcome from down here in good old North Cackalacky (NC). As you will no doubt learn, the 86 heads are a choke point for mods, severely restricting benefits from most of what you have done. You need to move these descriptive changes you've done down into the Tech section under "Modifications". Again, Welcome Aboard!
