    I loved my 4 eyed 86gt. Then I gave it to my dad and he did the 93 swap front and back. Its just boring now. looks good dont get me wrong but I liked it a lot better before. Best thing was no one I ever knew had one this nice. If I would have choose to change it though it would have been 93 gt rear and a capri front with spoiler. Here is where the 86 fog lights went.

    I'm so glad I started this thread :drool:

    That thing is SICK. Can you please explain what you mean by the following: "No radiator completely dry block/heads"

    I feel like an idiot but I didn't know that was possible. :shrug:

    I know when guys drag race snowmobiles they dont use coolant. They come back and hook it up to a cooler full of ice and water and let it cycle through..Is that what you do?

    Nevermind what everyone else thinks. Build what you want, that is a beautiful starting point.

    To many people with too many ideas never work out. I would love to own that coupe, make sure you do something good with it. I can't believe you get that for $400. I will give you $500 and a 12 pack of your choice, LOL.

    No, I feel like an idiot for not bothering to respond when somebody asks me a question. (I completely forgot I had these pics in here)

    On an alcohol car, it is hard to actually keep the engine at operating temp (160-180 degrees) because of the cooling effect of ramming alcohol into an engine at 30 P.S.I. of boost. W/ two 150lb/hr injectors per cylinder flowing enough alcohol to go through 3-4 GALS of alcohol per 1/8th mi run, the motor NEVER reached 180 degrees even after a full pass. and coming back down the return road actually cooled it even further.

    So,...no need for a radiator, AND certainly no need for water in the block.

    Ahh I see. Thanks for the reply, Mike. I hadn't considered the cooling effect of alcohol.

    86 gt

    Thanks, I really like the car. I paid $7000 for it (in Calgary, Canada). I could not resist as it is in such good shape for 25 years old. Never seen snow, it does not have a block heater. I find everyone wants to race me, from trucks to stationwagon.

    cheers
