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

Headliner is in, just need some more cut and trim for the t-top holes. Did notice some differences with the shape of the hardtop headliner (being cut for t-top), the map light section probably is supposed to drop down a but more, it has a small gap when it's in, and the sun visor clips are and inch off in location. Otherwise it is usable and looks good.

Also put in sound deadener for the rear and door speakers, put most of it out back so it don't sound like a tin rattle can. Sounds 500% better now!

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

Headliner cleaned up and driving lights now working. Also had to fix the rear defroster and rear wiper, found a bad solder job for a replacement fusible link. Also put in the subwoofer, can see it in between the seats, nothing speical - 10in sub with 200W Amp

Speaking of fusible links, the near future plan for those annoying bastards is a fuse panel on the drivers side strut tower and get rid of fusible links for good!

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

Alot of progress done this past weekend.

Repaired, cleaned up and semi-rebuilt a spare transmission to throw into the car (the on in it sounds sad, best take it out before something breaks).

Tore the motor down, swapped transmissions, rebuilt turbo installed and stainless turbo lines, solid poly bobble strut on transmission-to-frame, replaced a broked motor mount, new timing/power steering/alternator belts, new rad hoses/heater hoses and welded in the wideband O2 sensor bung and installed (and works!)

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

Not cleaned up, but together. I need to fix injector wiring issues that just popped up, wastegate solinoid wiring and replace fusible links with fuses. After that every square inch of wiring has been touched or replaced!



My own take on a custom vacuum block assembly. No EGR/Canister hooked up at the moment.

I've got a set of the factory fog lights and covers for my 89 ES. Brand spanking new. Bought them in 1995. Not Cheap even back then

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

Ran the car on the dyno yesterday. Couldn't get it tuned right before I went on, was running STUPID RICH, AFR at WOT 9.8:1. Ran 127HP and 177ft-lbs at 13psi. Had to drop the boost a bit because I was seeing boost creep around 5000rpm.

None the less I made more torque than any other FWD and most RWD of the day which is satisfing considering I was running far less than ideal.

Running that rich is frusterating. My fuel pressure is 55psi, stock 2.5T injectors that don't leak. I think my Stage 2 Boost Button calibration has issues, i've notice the fan doesn't kick on (because I overheated idling for 15min, but fan and relay work - tested) and all kinds of odd bugs in addition to running rich.

Blew the shit out of my muffler too, was doing 4th gear pulls on the highway for some tuning and I guess with 9.8:1 fuel gets into the muffler - BOOM

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

Have you had any luck burning your on chips yet? I would try the 89 mopar performance cal. I had a mopar performance computer in my shadow with a 2.5, small audi intercooler, stock 88 shelby lancer garrett turbo running 14psi
I ran best of 14.99 @ 93.68mph with a 2.4 60ft

I wish I had all my different setups dynoed, just have 1/4 mile numbers

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

Was that with manual boost control to get 14psi? I am planning to throw in a Mopar Performance cal chip over the weekend and see what it does, already burned the chip just gotta tear it out.

I am running a Boost Button Stage 2 cal (Set-up 2.5T Intercooled @ 14psi) ran it last summer on the worn out mitsu and no wideband.

This year I have a rebuilt Garrett T3 and wideband, getting ratios of around 9.5:1 at WOT, which kills power and blows up mufflers.
