I guess my first questions are...
What are the minimum mods recommended to go to a 2.7" pulley and what belt to use with it, or do I just change to an oversized tensioner.
I'd also like to put a 180 stat in it but I have no idea of part numbers or if they are the same as a Series II 3800.
Is there a way to keep stock exhaust to accomplish this and is there a U-bend on this car like the GTP'*?
What is everyone'* recommendations to get me an easy low to mid 14'*?
Your reccommended pulley size would be 2.5", or the stock pulley off a 92 or 93. Pulley Boys has them, and they're keyed, not press-on. Supporting mods would be tubular intake with cone filter, 180 stat, and a hi-flow cat and muffler. Keep the stock piping and resonator (mandrel bent stainless). Crossflow Camaro/Firebird muffler is best. Same stat as a Series 2, get the rubber seal and paper outlet gasket. I suggest drilling at least 2 1/16" holes in the rim. Keep the stock belt and use the oversized tensioner pulley from either ZZP, Pulley Boys, or INTENSE. There is no U-bend. Welcome to an H body.
