Anyone here got a super coupe?

  1. I'm thinking about getting an 88 super coupe from a friend that he has blown the head gaskets on. I'm wondering how much more involved it would be changing those than on a 302. I've done two head gasket jobs on my 92lx but have never messed with a 3.8, let alone one that's supercharged. Anyone that has done it please tell me how involved it is and what other parts I will need to complete the job.


  2. its rear wheel drive, about as big a pain in the butt as a efi 302. Main thing , Is the head gasket all he screwd up? Heads, pistons/rings. Best to have a valve job done (which includes pressure check, magnuflux) on the heads, i believe the head bolts are torque tight, so you will need a set of those, and obviously a complete gasket set (upper,lower,v-covers, h'g's, etc) best of luck, hopefully didnt screw up anthing like a head or a ring!
  3. They didn't make Supercoupes in 88. They started with the new mn12 body. The fox body Thunderbirds offered a Turbocoupe which had a 4 cyl 2.3 Turbo.
