    Well progress was pretty slow as the racing season was busy in November and having to work 6 days a week. Got off work around 1 PM today so got a little more work done:

    Cut the exhaust off, the cat should get me between $30-$50 back on my initial investment.:29:

    Also been working on my Dakota heart, a 5.9 with R/T heads, Comp cam, and a 750 Demon carburetor and getting some Hooker headers after Christmas. Putting a 727 and an 8" converter behind it.:eyebrows:

    This is a Modification I agree with, years ago I got to drive a Shelby Horizon Turbo ( I thought all these little Nopars were junk at the time) and I have to admit....Holly Sh** I was impresed. You sir will/do have that sleeper(y)

    Oh yeah....just that infamous blown head gasket....allways in the same spot weather it be a Turbo, EFI, carburated or in a lawn mower (Just kidding:cheers:) . 9.5 x out of 10 blown in the EXACAT same spot.

    None the less they did go like...*********:bouncy:


    EDIT, let me add to this...IMO they are prone to head gasget faiure, and CV joints failure but MAN I Would Love one like this because you WOULD blow the minds of alot of drivers when it comes to this combo in a wagon but you have to expect the fact nothing lasts fore ever. I'd love to drive a Tubo wago like this for a time, the ultimate Under Dog!!

    Thanks for the kind words. I made a lot of progress last Saturday, none of it really picture worthy. This is my third "built by me" turbo Mopar. The first being a Plymouth Horizon which was never factory turbo'd but was the sister car to The GLH-T Omni's. The second was a 93 Shadow convertible which has donated a lot of parts to this one. I'm hoping Sunday I can get to my storage unit and get my injector harness and alternator harness to finish that part iof the install. I need to install the coil, shorten the light harness since it came from a turbo minivan its a little longer than I need. Also need to lengthen the wiper and washer pump harness. I'm going to run all new aluminum fuel lines and then redo the brake lines.

    Ok I don't get down to this section alot. Hell I was just summoned down here yesterday. But my question is shouldn't this thread be up in the general wagon discussions area? Seems a shame to build sucha cool build way down at the bottom like this. Keep up the good work and keep us informed.

    I 3rd that emotion! Maybe Cappy was being too humble... It should be front and center up there.

    LOL, thanks guys. I just wasn't sure where to put it. On my other forum we have a project logs section that these builds get posted. Tell me who to ask and I'll PM them.
