welcome to the forum!!!!
Haha, thanks! With all of my projects, it seems like I always have grease under my nails.like the time lapse video on your blog. Not often you see a girl get her hands dirty.
Thanks! I'll post pics once I actually have the car in my possession. I'm hoping to have it within the next couple of weeks.Welcome to TD! We are glad to have ya. post some pics of your car if you could, we all love pics
Oh awesome, thanks for the link!ebay usually has factory service manuals for these cars. 3 books that cover a year of all the kbased cars. Here's the ones for 86.
It's for all the cars, not just the Lebaron.
Thanks! Yeah, I have to replace the turbo anyway since the car really hasn't been driven enough, so it's going to be one of those "while I'm in there" kind of things. My goal is not to modify the car a lot, but to optimize it and improve the performance a bit. The ECU was one of my planned upgrades."Welcome"
I have owned 2, still have #491 Great cars. Thumbs up!
The $150 Stage 3 ECU upgrade from your site supporting vendors will turn up the giggle and pucker factor if you're not paying close attention!
Thanks! I've coincidentally just started reading about this "super 60" kit in my research. I don't need 300hp, but then again I don't have to use all that hp, right?The Super60 Turbo is a nice upgrade. Upgrades the compressor, adds a larger exhaust housing and O2 housing in the same frame size and bolts right on. Good for 300hp. Thought they're getting harder to find.
Thanks, I'm aware of the boost limit on the ECU, which is why I want to change it. I have to see if I can go muffler-less in my state and pass inspection. Next year the car will qualify for an "antique" plate, which will make it smog and inspection-exempt, so I can do whatever I want then, anyway. So, the cork may just have to stay in place for the time being.GLHS was boost limited in the ECU to keep torque below 175 so the crappy 525 tranny didn't blow up. A MP Stage 2 ECU will get you 200hp, and the tranny will live as long as you're not power shifting it. The exhaust is the main cork as they used n/a Lbody exhaust even on the turbos.
