Nothing was wrong with the original engine. I came across a short block for $150 and I decided to rebuild something a little more powerful. I thought about building a 383 but for the additional cost I didn’t think it was worth it. I had a professional shop build the short block for me out of Taylorsville, NC. They had built several engines for me before without any failures. We retain the stock crank and polished it. As the list stated we went with a 6” forged rod with Wiesco forged pistons. The rotating assembly is balanced so you can take this engine to 6,500 rpm’s with no problem. I contacted Advanced Induction to build me a set of CNC’d heads with a matching camshaft and intake. The engine combination has the best of everything you want for a street engine. Do some homework and you will see that I only used quality parts. I would say that this engine has 12,000 miles on it since it’s rebuild.Transmission • T56 - 6 Speed – Rebuilt 4,000 miles ago • Rebuilt by D & D Performance • Steel Shift Forks and Dog Legs • Best of everything • RAM HD Clutch/ Pressure Plate Setup • Pro 5.0 Short Throw ShifterThe Formula originally came with a automatic but I converted to a 6 speed, Shifting gears is a lot more fun! I found a core and had it shipped to D & D performance in Michigan. They went through and replaced the weak parts with aftermarket race quality parts as shown in the list above. I have not had any issues with the transmission. Now since the car was an automatic putting the car into reverse takes a little more effort. The reverse lockout solenoid stays locked and does not release. It does take a little effort to push the shifter lockout solenoid into reverse. It’s not a big deal! My daughter can do it! The solenoid has a bypass feature so encase it goes out you still can get it into reverse. The solenoid is electric so it could be wired up to a release switch if needed.Rear End • Stock Rear End Housing • 3:73 Ratio Gears • Auburn Posi-Unit • Moser Hardened Axles • TA Performance Aluminum Cover/GriddleThe rear end still uses the stock housing with upgraded 3:73 gears, axles and support cover. It does not make any noise what so ever. The Auburn posi-unit is the stock unit. That is an SLP WS6 and SS option only.Exhaust • “Jet-Hot” Ceramic Coated Headers • Custom 3” Y-Pipe Ceramic Coated (NO CATS) • “Borla” Exhaust System Ceramic Coated (Adjustable) • Complete Header / Exhaust System is Ceramic Coated by “Air Borne Coatings”The exhaust system is stainless steel but it is also completely ceramic coated. It also DOESN'T have CATS. So you will need to check your local laws regarding inspections. Right now it has O2 simulators installed so it will pass inspection. You could easily install CATS if needed. This car sounds awesome! Serious CAM lope! You will not be disappointed with the way it sounds. It is loud but since it is a Borla exhaust system it is adjustable.Suspension • “RaceCraft” Tubular Front K-Member • “Spohn Performance” Front Tubular Upper & Lower Adjustable Control Arms • “Random Technologies” Adjustable Torque Arm • “SLP” Drive Shaft Safety Loop • “Elderbrock” Adjustable ISA Coil Over Front Shocks • “Eibach” Pro-Kit Rear Lowering Springs • “Hotchkis” Sway Bar Kit, 1 7/16" Front, 1" Rear • “Hothckis” Rear Control Arms • “Hotchkis” Adjustable Pan Hard Rod • “Hotchkis” Sub Frame Connectors • “Hotchkis” Strut Tower Brace • “Energy Suspension” Sway Bar Bushings & Links in RED • “KYB” Rear Shocks • All parts powder coated in Black and RedAs you can see there not much left to do to the suspension. Car drives like it is on rails….
