Hey fiero goons. Im building my 87 GT my dad gave to me a few years ago. Its your plain old 87 gt model with a faded spoiler and silver ground effects. 145k miles, runs great, 5 speed car.
Going to be boosting it, with a intercooled setup, probably a 60mm turbo t3/t4 with a DSM style in/out on one side intercooler i will mount in the trunk, Ill cut the trunk to allow air to pass probably.
bigger injectors, and some other odds and ends will go along with it, going to straightpipe the car from the turbo back (got collector plates)
All this will be done this winter before I paint the car, going to paint it factory color, along with a new wingless decklid.
Expect pics soon, the car is sitting in the shop collecting dust as it has been for the past 5 years, starts up great every month or so, gonna pull it out and detail it in a week or so, gotta move my dads 92 mark vii lsc out of the garage first
Going to keep all this to a below $2000 - $2300 budget, and do it right/clean, im a mechanic in the auto and diesel field so i know sort of what im doing
dont know a ton about the L44 or any 60 degree v6 for that matter so im a complete NOOB and please dont be afraid to correct me!
I need input from guys that have done these builds, backwoodsfiero, for example, dont know if ya'll remember that build, it was a blue GT with a boosted/built 2.8, theres videos of it on youtube. car had 2-step and everything.
