Finally got it on a lift and I’m pretty happy with most of what I see. The floors/frame are immaculate. Rear spring wtf lmao. What better excuse to do Viking coil overs on all 4 corners.

I knew going in I’d be upgrading the fuel system. I’m not a fan of external pumps on street cars. Currently has an external 255 so I ordered up a whole new aeromotive tank with their 340 pump setup.

After that I plan on getting it retuned and see if I can turn it up a bit more. Previous owner claimed 543rwhp.

I cant tell you how many cars I threw those spacers in the springs. When your young and broke, you do whats needed to make it work.
Didnt expect it on this car though.

Exactly my thoughts lmao. The springs say belltech. I wonder if it’s just old.

Cant donk a Malibu, G Body or Box Chevy. Donks are 71-76 Caprices/Impalas.
Big rims on an old school car doesnt make it a donk.

Are you having the neighbors take a look at the tuning?

Do they have a dyno?
Yes and yes. That’s why I ordered the bigger pump and tank first. Car should be able to make more power once it gets enough fuel. A 255 is too small for this car.
