Hello to everyone
Hello to all, some of you here already know me. I'm Gonneville'* brother, Sean. I've been dragged along to a few meets, so I know a few of you. He'* been twisting my arm to register, I guess he got tired of me trolling under his log-in!
I'm currently the owner of a 93 Plymouth Duster, it'* running a 3.0L V6 and a 5-speed tranny. The brakes and swaybar are sourced from a 91 Shelby Daytona, and I've done a few other mods to it. Larger throttle body, massively ported intake plenum (11lbs before porting, 8.2 after!!!), 8.5mm wires, and I bumped the timing by 3* advance for more power.
Future plans call for a total rebuild of a spare motor, it'll be running 8:1 pistons in a block bored to 3.25L. I'm using the M62 from Brian'* old Bonneville, with a custom fabbed bracket to position it behind the stock Mopar plenum location. It'll be blowing through either a Saab or Volvo intercooler. Injectors are sourced from Ford Motorsports, 30pph'ers. I'm also using a set of Mitsu Diamante cams (the Mopar 3.0 is sourced from Mitsu, used in just about everything both companies made, and oddly enough, it'* sort of still around. The engine family ranges from a JDM 2.0L supercharged model, to the 2.5 in the Mopar cloud cars, to the 3.0 versions in all the early 90s Mopars, to the 24-valve motors in the Eclipse and Stratus, to the DOHC Twin Turbo motor in the Stealth/3kGT, to the 3.5/3.8 in the Montero, and even the new Eclipse 3.8 MIVEC motor uses the same basic block architecture. Some Hyundai Sonatas got the older version, and the current 2.7 in the Tiburon is related. The motor also got used in forklifts with a propane carb, and there are marine applications as well.
Brian keeps trying to convert me to GM, so I'll just note that my Duster is currently wearing a set of 16in Beretta GTZ rims. :P
