I might make a grill if I get bored, but more than likely I won't.

I'll have to check the tire size. They are the cheapest and smallest tires the used tire place had. They mostly deal in 20" plus. :roll:

195/45-15s and another 1-2" down and that would be the sexiest Arrow going. 8)

195/60-15 front
215/60-15 rear
It looks fine. :wink:

anyways, I rebuilt the carb and eliminated the egr. still have lean spikes, but they are not anywhere near as bad. they dont slam your face into the steering wheel anymore, just slight discomfort.
it seems to be at about 3-9" vacuum.
It only goes to about 16-17:1 now, instead of maxing the gauge out. Still idles super lean as well, the idle enrichment screw still doesnt do anything.
ehh, carburation... I knew I shouldn't have wasted the time/money on that thang.

I have not driven it yet. I'm waiting some epoxy to set before I can do anything. Plus it's been raining here.

Drove it today.
I figured out my fuel pumps max pressure is 4psi. That is not enough for the 7-10psi wastegate.
So I ordered a dirt cheap pump that pushes up to 14psi. E8153. Yes, it is designed for diesel, but I've read of it used on gasoline applications. It only needs to last one summer, if that.

So much turbo?!? You make it seem like a gt3788r running 30psi!
My turbo is a 12a from a Conquest. So it has the 7psi/10psi wastegate. Yes, one port for 7psi, one for 10psi.

Made me a top hat. I want to say it is 2.25" pipe. Kept poppin the coupler off.
I have the primary jet as standard, and just removed the secondary jet. Gets a mid-11 afr under boost. 7 psi for now.

Depending on how smooth this drives and how reliable it is, I might have to do it to the sedan, just for the novelty of it being old school turbo'd.

So, sell me on it :D prove to me it's reliable haha.

have you considered the overdrive unit out of a dakota? I've been thinking about it, controlled via switch. I've got the website bookmarked, I'll post it when I get to my home computer later. With overdrive I'd be willing to drive the Colt anywhere, currently I dont like winding it up passed 60mph really.

I broke 3 of the 4 hood bolts taking the hood off, the trans mount cross beam crumbled to rust chunks, but otherwise, so far so good.
I'm getting stuff cleaned up and chasing it with a few beers.
I am photoshopping some ideas for the setup.

^need to make a new intake manifold. That is pretty close to scale, and there is no way the intake will fit, and I am not going hydrobrakes.

^The hill billy that ruined my dash, gave me a reason to make a new cover with some gauge holes. I plan to install one dash speaker and a low wattage amp fed by a bluetooth reciever. Who cares if its mixed mono.

This should be fun.

I'll just make a new intake.
I have one drawn up, just need to order some bends and get some stuff cut.

I thought I was going to have enough room to remove the cas if I needed to, but there is a dang brake line in the way.
I downgraded my cams the other night, went from king kams to bc 280s. The bc 280s should net me a lot more low end power, where the king kams were more for all out drag/high rpms.
I have to decide on which ems I plan to use.
