Pretty much what I was thinking. I'd love to have this for a winter beater. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for this beast eLetoR?

Picked it up for $600 with a spare 2.5 block, SRT4 head, custom cam gears and a shitload more. It was a buddies project but he moved to Arizona for a new job. Looks like I have a project now Razz

Those are fun cars.


Just an FYI, there is one sitting at Schmidts JY right now, the interior is pretty much stripped, but it does have a rear shock tower brace and the front trim stuff is intact. You might be able to get some dash pieces as well.

In all seriousness that is kind of a rare mopar gem. For their time they were pretty sporty and would give a stock 5.0, stock Camaro a real run for their money. Hard to believe, but true.

Quoted for Truth. There used to be one that cruised EW all the time that was STUPID fast. Last time I saw it was about 2 years ago or so.

The car has a 2.5 common block in it now that was rebuilt last week out of spare parts. If I can find the time and ambition, I want to put the skittle head on the 2.5. I have all the stuff to do it, just a matter of doing it.

Yeah, they are pretty rare. This one has Carrol Shelby's autograph on the visor, just a little nostalgia. I have a lot of the interior that I plan to put back into it and try to restore some of the cars lost glory. The car got pretty messed up back in 07' during a flood, it sat in 6 feet of water for a few days.

Definitely not a direct bolt up, but it can be done from what I've heard from the local turbo dodge guys.

ok sounds good if they have done it more power to them but I don't see it working from what i can tell. may as well just fab up some mounts and throw in a complete SRT combo

friend of mine stopped in last week/said he was doin this head swap on his. sounded similar to the honda lsvtec type of deal except the oil drainback needs. head stud/bolt location is supposed to be the same & oil feed is simple.
