The Monte Carlo came out of storage, cleaned up, and started on the first try. My battery is likely the walking dead, but will still start the car after being charged. I even drove it around the block for the first time in over 5 years. I love this car, unfortunately it's on hold until the S2000 and the home theater are done. Hopefully, by the time summer rolls around, I'll be ready to build the new engine, do the OBD2 swap, and replace the turbo. Depending on whether I do a 96 or 97 OBD2 swap, I may also be rebuilding a 4T65E-HD that I have sitting in the garage.
This is my first update of this car in a long time. I'll be pulling it out of storage in South Dakota at Thanksgiving and bringing it back to Pennsylvania to my new house. It's been a few years since it last ran, so it will definitely be an adventure. I would love to have it back on the road again next summer. I'm not sure if the engine will be built by then, but I should have the OBD2 swap completed and the DBB T67 turbo installed. I believe that I have all of the parts I need, so it's simply a matter of getting it here and then spending the time to bring it back better than it ever was before. I'm hoping for ~ 500 whp on pump gas with the new parts, but I would probably be happy with anything over 400-450 whp on 93 octane.
A little intro. The Monte has been running a turbo for 30k+ miles and 2+ years. I did the entire stereo in the S2000. I installed some of the stereo in the Monte, but Kustom Kar Audio in Boulder, CO did all of the fiberglass work for the revamp of it.
My cars and a few of their biggest mods: 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Z34 ~325 whp and ~350 lb-ft T04E 60 trim turbo @ 10 psi (T67 DBB coming soon) 18" Fittipaldi Force wheels Full suspension and 13" big brake brake mods HUGE 5.1 Clarion, Zapco, Dynaudio, Alumapro sleeper stereo
2004 Honda S2000
My Dad's car: 1974 Triumph TR6

beautiful, I want info lol where did you get the pipes fabricated. Ive been wanting to turbo forever but never had the resources or money.
Thanks. Most of the piping was done in Fort Collins and Loveland, CO.
nice whip are you done?
I still have a long way to go, but it's close. I already have all of the parts listed as coming soon (96-97 motor to be rebuilt with forged, low compression CP pistons, Pauter forged rods, Northstar throttle body, 4T65E-HD transmission, surround sound processor, 13" brakes, more), unfortunately I don't have any time to install them. Once they're in, I might swap out the subwoofers or the headunit, but it should be pretty much complete otherwise.
i know what you mean it takes time bro
nice car man, hows the turbo?
Monte looks great, the whites very clean 5*
