I thought that Regal hood looked familiar. Sorry to hear that. What a difference a couple of weeks makes.

I'm with Dan on this one. You can probably top-swap it twice with the SC parts you have laying around, which leaves more money for gaskets and beer.

Nah...I've done the SC thing. I've had NA Regals before and they are fine. If anything..it might go turbo.

LOL, and soon his trans will be feeling it.

FWIW I'd be going low boost if I did. Just something to add a little zip and not a full out build. Trans has the intense input shaft, but dual chains on 2.93 stock ratio.

If I remember right, I put a 1" chain, I think. Or was it a 7/8" I don't recall anymore. I think he'* running 16 to 19 pounds of boost. Only way I would do something like that is a track car, drop it in a Fiero and not daily drive.

If he got it new it was 7/8 and likely stretched to hell already.

I'd be going baby snail.
