That stupid welded rear diff is coming out. I have a 3.31 with speedo plug for elec. I kinda like it lowered .....mainly for the fact that I don't want to rip apart a working suspension

I need to pop in a later electronic speedo into my early cluster so I can use the pickup in my rear end.

this car is the #OCWHORE

but unlike all these hacksters im gonna put it back together right..

why you not posting progress of that m46 swap?????

and come get your ratchet before I start using it on this car

btw, the 80 gle you saw will be giving its life for the 75, the whole black interior with the black sunroof headliner too

black gt commandos, black multi-x wheels, a Yakima rack with the old school bunny ear bike attatchments, the fully welded 2 1/4" exhaust from the donor wagon along with the wagon diff.

I have 2 turbo options for the 2.2lh im putting in. I have the 13 from the 780 and a really clean garret from a b21ft..keep in mind I rarely rev my car over 4500rpm, so what would be a better choice. I will probably have a boost controlled v-band for when I really need to punch it up the hills so im not worried about the smaller exhaust.


I have a ridiculous hoard of parts cars that I can finally proudly put into a car worth saving..a smog freee 75

edit; I actually cant remember what turbo is in the 780 now that I think about it

I want them for this car. I have an early fog light setup for it. But I kinda like quad square flat hood setups too.

If not I can use those for the Benz.

Progress on the trans swap is on hold tell after thanksgiving. Cant get enough days off to slam it out. Plus I want to do it right the first time. Cant wait to see this car come together and yes you have plenty of donor car and parts. Need that ratchet and maybe that leather shift boot cover.
