stormy's 1996 GSX
Here is my newest addition to the yard :) i traded an 86/90 Mustang GT for it (the 90 GT had become one with a telephone pole so all but the drivers door was swapped to the 86 GT shell)
My buddy had the car for three years and sadly hadnt been able to put a single mile on it. he tells me it has no injector pulse... as it sits this eclipse has just over 200k miles on it!
after i charged the battery i gave it a crank, my first impression was no compression lol. Adding a bit of starting fluid made no change to the random small pop coming from the exhaust. Next was a t-belt intallation verification, happily it was right but that doesnt mean it wasnt at one time... on to a compression test, reslults below
so where is it all going???? putting air in the cylinders revealed a lack of rings. The motor is supposed to be new (well, 3 yrs old but no miles) so i litterally wonder if there are rings in there! on the plus side, the fresh head (valves were found to be bent last year) is still good but i question why they were bad in the first place on a fresh motor...
Anyway, this is how it sits till i get around to pulling the motor.
not a fan of the white painted interior, thankfully good original parts are in the car
lots of good stuff on the car, 3" cat back, cams, intake, fmic, 16g, short shifter, aftermarket header, a set of gauges to hook up and a NEO safc
