My “Little Project,” thread is getting too long for me to easily thumb through it for information. At this point my red GT is quickly moving on from the rebuilding stage. This thread will explore
1) The completion of my Front suspension rebuild
2) The replacement of my oil pan and diagnosis of a low oil pressure problem and a loss of oil pump prime problem.
3) the installation and tuning of a single side draft 40DCOE with MIDI kit on a 2.0L. And all the problems associated with the swap.
4)Who knows what more adventures await my GT.
Here’s how my GT looks as of now:
Here’s the current specs and mods:
The Car: early 1970 Opel GT with dealer installed ARA AC
Exterior: Crappy quality, but cool custom paint job, unpainted underbody, mudflaps, lots of cool stickers
Interior: ARA AC console with working blower, factory dash with only 2 cracks, black loop carpet with red trim. 100% factory upholstery and seats. Added AFR gauge.
The Engine: 78HP at the wheels, 98lb-ft torque in 3rd gear. 2.0L 1973 Block with 1984 XR2E 2.0L Head. Ported intake with a Weber 38DGAS running slightly rich at WOT. 3lbs lighter than stock flywheel and stock 4speed transmission with Valeo clutch. 2” exhaust with header.
The Suspension: fully rebuilt rear end with poly and 1” lowering. Front suspension is currently disassembled, but will be poly and 1” lowering.
