please read this, more detailed and updated. lmk if you have anymore ?'s, be glad to helpHi, I also have a Daytona and am wanting to lighten it as much as I can, I noticed you have gotten your car extremely light, I was shooting for 2500 lbs. for mine but you've seem to have blown that away, any ideas you can share with me to help drop a bunch of weight, I've gutted the rear of the car and have gotten rid of everything unneeded, also plan on cutting out the spare tire tub, any help would be much appreciated, thanks Brandon
I still run a pcv system on all my cars, have to get that moisture out of the motor.Thanks for the link to that other thread, definitely more detailed, I do have one question, its a little off the weight topic though, but you seem to know you stuff and have some good connections, what's your opinion on the pcv system, and do you run one or did you delete it, I know you run a dohc motor but I'm still interested in what you think about the pcv system and/or deleting it for an old 8 valve motor, thanks Brandon
Before we get started with all of the t3 conversion stuff why do you want to convert it over?Im looking for advice ....
Im planning on doing a T3 swap of my own I have the motor and I just bought the candidate car its a 1985.5 XT laser has the voice alert system. ( I also have a Black 1986 Turbo Z C/S I could use) I have the T3 motor and transmission as well as the engine wire harness and computer. I know I have to modify the T3 engine bay harness to work with the 1st gen body harness of the car and I have a general Idea of what I need to do to accomplish that. what I need help with are the finer details like what year engine mounts and transmission mounts to put in the car or weather or not I need T3 throttle body specific cables AC lines and from what year as well as anything else I may be missing. all advice appreciated
