Default My 86' Monte Carlo SS

Hey there,

It'* been about two or three years since I have been by this website. I "had" a 1998 Bonneville SSEi, but ended up crashing it about a year ago. In any case I have a new bad boy which is my Monte Carlo SS, I hope you like it!

Love those cars...

Is that a Ramjet Small Block?

I know they used the 305 Tuned Port Injection High Output, but don't remember them using a 350...

Is that the original motor?

That car looks freaking great... I miss those cars

jr, I think they used a 350 in 86 or 87. Not sure but there was a 350 option.

EDIT: My mistake. There was no option for a 350 between 83 and 88.

Nice car,

Jr is right, the motor is not original...at least not in that configuration. Rochester E4MC was the standard induction... I could swear that TBI was also available at the end of production, but Multi-port fuel injection was not (though there are plenty of Monte Carlo'* running around with TPI manifolds "borrowed" from F-Bodies and Vettes.)

Still, whoever swapped did a nice job of it. I've never seen an LT1 style intake that sits that high..looks like an extension to the plenum was added to it...kinda like GM'* crate 502 Ram-Jet motor.

Very sharp looking car! I know someone who had a white one about the same vintage (+/- one year). His had the T-Roof. I like that body style much better than the new ones.
