Have been looking for a GLH for a while. This one was right around the corner from my Dads house. The prior owners had removed the N/A engine and dropped in a Turbo II and A-555 tranny from an 87 Shelby Z. Also rewired it to 88 electronics. Another project that needs some more goods to finish off. Looking for that nice 350/400 formula for a nice street machine.
1985 Dodge Omni (Red)
Stock 87 Turbo II with stock rotating assembly, stock head and 2pc intake, stock injectors and fuel system. Runs a Stage 3 SMEC from FWD Performance. Airbox was removed with some Frankenstein upper piping, BOV is spliced into the lower intercooler hose. The 2pc intake is stock with no porting. The prior owner had the 52mm TB on it, but didn't open up the mouth to accept it, so put a OEM unit back on it until I can open it up. Running the factor intercooler. The prior owner has inserted a vacuum block mounted on the firewall. The OEM Garrett Turbo. May pull it this winter and give it the beans. I've been trying to do as much research I can to get a good combo together, and avoid the mistakes made on the Shelby Z (which really just needs me to get back to basics, with fuel-air-spark balanced).
Has some pod gauges, a flat bottom Grant steering wheel, some gauge pods. Some transplanted seats from a Horizon. Shadow shifter with cables doing the work.
Also fairly stock. Prior owner wired in a 3rd brake light and some LED signals. I've got a Turbo Hood waiting to go in. A lady was nice enough to crease my rear driver side door...the nice and straight door...figures. Need to do some body work and finish off with some paint.
Jeep Grand Cherokee OEM CD/Tape deck with some nice speakers.
Stock, with the exception of Horizon rear taillights.
Stock exhaust manifold. Full 3-inch exhaust with Magnaflow muffler - high flow CAT, with a 2.5" swing valve.
KYB struts...with Eibach springs on the front...rears are still stock (they are in the box and need to be put on). Rear disc breaks from the 87 Shelby Z, and the larger sway bar up front. Working on getting the fronts switched over to KH 60mm with the correct Master Cylinder, and with FWD SS braided flex line.
Wheel and Tire
Running with 6.5" crab wheels from a Turbo/Shelby Z with 195/55's.
