My new ride

I Just picked up a 94 S/C with 104k on it. Body is perfect but it needs head gaskets. I am gonna do the whole motor and should be down for the first meet this spring! I will post picks when i get some. Hope everyone is doing good and i hope to see you soon!!

Looks good Robert!

I noticed in the pictures that 15 inch rims are on the car. Do you have the 16 inch SC rims?

No. the guy I bought the car from only had the 15's and some cobra r's that he sold. I have the 18's from my 95 to put on there and i will keep my eye out for a set of s/c rims

So how far do you want to go with this motor. Camshaft is the key. None available I see that are anything but ancient philosophies. Of course, what would one expect for ancient cars. So what are the heads you bought? Maybe a glimmer here.

They are factory heads but they have been gasket match ported and polished and enlarged chambers. The guy said he was running 13's with them so they must flow pretty good. He had a cam and some other crap in it too. I am just gonna get it together for now and probably i will take my tax returns next spring and dump 3 or 4k into a monster. I would like to see low 13's next year. But this year I will still smoke some honda's ( on the track of course )

Update!!

I spent a few hours under the hood today. I got the heads, intake plentum, exhaust manifolds timing cover, tensioner pulleys, and oil lines bolted on. now it is little crap like injectors, wireing, belts and hoses. hopefully I can hear her run tomorrow!? Things are definately different under the hood of an S/C.
