So, I got off work this afternoon and started to go checkout my new toy.
My fancy interior.
Where she will be sitting for awhile.
Doesn't look like I saved her from a scrap yard here!
Oh yea, I also found this in a box in the trunk:
Anybody know where these go?
SO, with all that said and done. I know this engine is BAD... After looking in the engine bay it looks like the motor can come right out the top. Thank goodness this engine cradle doesnt have to come out the bottom like the Fiero. Taking the ass end of a car 5ft in the air to get that iron block out is a bear!
If you checkout my first post I have a few mods laying around the shed.
I believe the cam is nearly identical to this: http://www.compcams.com/Cam_Specs/CamDetails.aspx?csid=1075&sb=2
Can I run this cam with stock springs, retainers and pushrods?
Should I replace anything internal in the Bonneville engine? anything I need/should checkout internal before I just pop and swap? timing chain,dampener, water pump? or are they good for another 200k miles?
I would like to make this a sporty yet comfortable daily driver. I'm not in a hurry to get this done. I currently have 7 cars in my yard. I need to get rid of a couple before I get too in depth with this new project.
I just put in my order at INTENSE for 180* stat, timing chain, auto lite 104's, new supercharger fluid.
I should be selling the minivan this next week. As soon as I get rid of it I will start taking out that other motor. I told myself I wasnt going to get into another project till I got rid of at least one of the many cars I have in the yard now. Ahem....
1979 Mercury Capri with a 302, 5speed.. Looks just like a foxbody mustang.

2001 Dodge Caravan 255K miles... !! ICE COLD AC !!
and of course the 3 dead fiero's my brothers been toying with, and my new love... baby blue rivi.
My yard looks like a used car lot to say the least...Thanks for all the warm welcomes!
