Default Project: 1995 Touring Sedan

As the Touring Sedan stopped production in 1993, I always wondered what a 95 Touring Sedan would have been like. 1994 saw the introduction of the far superior dashboard on the 98/88 and the L36 came out in 1995, of course.
Now, as I have a 1995 98, and a trashed 1993 Touring Sedan parts car, I thought it might be fun to build the worlds only 1995 Touring Sedan.
Major differences in the TS:
- HD Tranny 3.06 gear
- FE3 suspension with 16 inch wheels
- Speed adjustable steering
- Super duper Lear Siegler buckets
- Console with floor shift
- Black trim replacing chrome
- Full instrumentation
- Body Colour grille
- TS badges etc.

I think I got them all.
Now, the suspension changeover is pretty easy. Wheels also. Lear Siegler seats are a bolt in, with the caveat that I might have to do some wiring. Not sure how the console will fit. Trim I can transfer over easily also. Body colour grille can be had off of the LSS.

The harder stuff: 3.06 gear will wait until a future tranny rebuild.
Speed sensitive steering - This will require some research. New rack definately. Gotta wire it into the computer somehow.
Full insrumentation- I have the 3 dial analog right now. The four dial (with Tach) from the LSS should be a drop in EXCEPT for the fact that I have an analog odometer and trip odometer off to the right, while the four dial has digital odometer and trip odometer below the Speedo. Not sure where they get the feed for the Odo from.

Wanna do some basic performance mods to the L36 anyway (LIM porting, freerer exhaust and intake, etc).

I don't wanna do anything too radical as this is my daily driver. But I am thinking it will make for a fun project.

What are you asking? Or is this just a statement that belongs in General Chat?

Looking for input or comments. Maybe someone has tried what I am thinking of. Figured as this is a modification post, Performance and Brainstorming what be more appropriate than General.

3.06 isn't a HD gearset. It'* the same gear ratio and differential all the L36'* get. (or 3.05 in later years).

The rack isn't different on speed-sensitive steering. The difference is the pump. Do a search on RPO code T2V on this Forum. I have it on both cars. And each of my cars has a different rack ratio.

Thanks Will!
All my research has shown that the 1995 98 had the 2.84 unless you went supercharged (which almost no one did apparently). So that difference should have been listed in 2 lines, first being the HD tranny, second the 3.06 ratio.
Looks like there is no knowing what rack I would have. Gonna take a pic of the build label on the TS.
I thought it also showed both FE3 and F41.....

It can't show both FE3 and F41. You can't have two suspension codes like that.

Want to know what rack you have? Count the number of turns from lock to lock. Compare that to an SSEi and an SE on this Forum.

If you change your gear ratio, you'll need a custom PCM. Your shifts won't be at the right RPM'*.
