Re: 1986 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z T3 DOHC Tuned at FwdPerformance
A little history...
I bought this car in 1999 for $500 from the backlot of a kia dealership.
1986 dodge daytona turbo z c/s. Originally a white ext maroon int, turbo i, 5 speed manual trans car. After blowing a hole in the a525 trans housing, trans was upgraded to a heavy duty a568 getrag unit and a spirit r/t stock clutch, boost was also increased to 14psi from the stock 9psi. Car ran very well for about a year. The boost and aggressive driving finally took its toll on the original engine(had 125k on it).
Upgraded to a t2 motor from a 88 shelby z and a new turbo from tu. Car ran like a dream.
After that i bought a spirit r/t. That was it, so much easier to make power with the dohc motor. It had a stock 1991 dohc motor with a custom cal.(set at 20psi), 20 inj., and 3" mb exhaust. This was installed as a test fit/function before paint work was done.
