Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

Yeah thats interesting. I always have an eye out for a 2.2/2.5 to arrive at the Pull a part near me. They charge so cheap it isn't even funny, 35 for a head. That way if my head gasket were to go and crack the head I wouldn't have to send it off and be stranded, I'd just get the used one shaved if need be and what not.

Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

Little update, the tore down motor is still factory bore, I was worried because the guy I bought it from said he thinks it was rebuilt and may have been 0.40 over. Picked up an 88 TBI cam, working on lining up the head light lids, i have big issues with the way they line up to raise and lower. Next step I guess is dig alittle into cleaning up the engine bay electrical.

Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

Nodda lil update, big change in plans due to change in life lol, putting it back together and getting her on the road to enjoy for the summer, determined the engine in it isn't in too bad of condition and with a tune up should be reliable, thought turbo shot and burning oil but seems like it's the vacuum lines & PCV & intake/intercooler piping needing a severe overhaul. Pics of the work soon.

Got her safety inspected!

Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

hey
I am a fellow '89 Daytona owner in Sackville, NB. My car is a daily driver that has been my labour of love putting it together. I am on the hunt for some trim and misc. parts if you have any (can send list). I also have a '90 Daytona parts car that has a few things left on it. email me if interested: [email protected]
thanks, Sandy

Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

Well she is on the road, not restored but it looks good enough to show, threw it back together and cleaned it up a bit, put half of the decal kit on and a coat of wax. Blast to drive with the tops out!! Pics when I get a chance, looking to hit some shows with it this summer since there are none of these around here

Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

Had some concerns about the SMEC not getting cooled due to use of a cone intake air filter, car came with the cone otherwise I would had left it stock, anyways... heat certainley reduces electronics life, therefore I need cooling.

It's simple, but I have seen many talk about or do this, this is my take that came out quite nicely.

Turbo 1 plastic piece that bolts on the throttle body, hose that goes with it and a PC style 12VDC electric fan, some screws, 2.5"ish hose clamps and wiring shit.

The bolt holes on the TB plastic line up perfectly with the fan, and the opening is just the right size. Mounted the fan to that, cut the intake hose just short enought to fit the TB plastic and go onto the computer mouth (lucky they are the same size). Mounted that and got the switched ignition 12VDC from the single blue wire on the Fan relay, and ground from the bolt that holds the fan/starter relays on.

I find this is actually effective. Why? Well after some driving and coming to a stop and idling, the fan is pulling hot air out of/through the SMEC. Best keep her cool!!





Keep in mind the engine bay is strictly functional :)

I did the same thing when I had installed a CAI on my Duster back when it had a 3.0L

Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

while looking.. Ever considered just running the BOV through the computer? Always sucking cold freash air under vac from out side the engine compartment. Would also send the sound out the car too.

Had a custom shift knob made by my recently retired boss, 5 different exotic wood, can't remember a single one of them. The gorgeous custom "Daytona Shelby" Shift insert by DartGTS340
