Well , My motor is making noise AGAIN !!! Sounded like a lifter so I changed them.. Noise still there.. Put different roller rocker arms , Noise still there..Forget that motor !! Getting a 350 cheap from a friend.. Changing the head gaskets and putting on head studs .. Spraying it with a 150 shot.. THEN over this winter selling my 94 T/A.. Buying a LQ9 long block.. Building it for a turbo..Blow through carb.. Greg Jr friend has a shop down here and will build me a custom turbo setup.. I will post pic's when we start the build...

I know this is an old thread but I love this car. It reminds me of the 82 I had after I put the SS nose and deck lid on it. I'll be watching for that build.
