🔧 BUILD Boostie’s 1987 Notchback

General Information

I will hop on board in the build section here as I have been a member of TCG and big follower of sloppy on FB over the years.

Quick run down of my turd that I built completely out of my garage.

Basic SS2 don’t bs me style build for the engine on E85
Shiny Borg turbo
Th400 with PTC converter
Holley Terminator setup with 7” dash
Bunch of Low Dollar sensors and SEP injectors
On board air setup for boost control/airing tires
Lots of fancy un-needed suspension

Just got the car running recently but looking forward to this coming year. So far I’ve been doing the tuning on my own but may throw it on the dyno eventually

Life has gotten in the way but I have been slowly knocking tasks off.

Flex fuel setup from motion installed and working good on the Holley

Motion chute mount and Stoud chute. I wanted a more clean looking chute handle inside the car so I fabbed up some brackets to make the e-brake landless my chute lever.

Also swapped out the waste gate springs to a big higher to make street driving more fun and have been working on dialing in the tune through the Holley. 8psi on the street is pretty fun and the car sounds wild when spooled. Need to get the front end re-aligned since I pulled everything apart and new rear tires mounted but should be able to make some shake down passes here soon!
