The 165 delima

Postby InitialD93 » Fri Aug 27, 2004 12:03 pm

Well heres the deal guys... remember when my bud got that red 165 to fix up for $250. Well hes tight on cash now and wanting to get rid of it... so im thinkin ill buy it and just see what i can do with it. most likely it will get stripped and be my race/rally car if all goes as planned. Never know i mean the body is in great shape and the interior just needs a good scrub... short block however is busted so thats gona have to be fixed.

i can prolly get it for $250 or less but i just dont know if i need another alltrac laying arround especially if it dont run. But hopefully it will work out and ill have 2 beotches to bring to Pidgeon Forge next year :wink: .

Ive also got my truck project that i may sell in order to fund the 165... honestly i like the styling and feel of the 165 better than my 185... but that just the old school in me talkin :smokes:

ill keep ya posted.

in a pathetic attempt to make it run i can get a 5S block from a 92 GT for like $100... is there anyway in hell i could swap the 3s block for the 5s block just as a temproary fix. or am i gona have to find a new short block... plus will any gen short block bolt up to the 1st gen head or does it have to be a 1st gen block.

here are some pics of it

i need to know if the 1st gen head will go the other way... on a newer block. will the 5s block line up right with the 1st gen 3s head.

I just had a thought... i have a 2nd gen JDM 3SGTE head with HKS bits sitting in my garage... can i dump that on the 5S block with a new HG and bolt up the 1st gen turbo stuff to the 2nd gen head... i have a 2nd gen intake manifold also so i dont have to try to make the 1st gen one work with the 2nd gen head if they wont meet up.

i remember reading somewhere that the 2.2 block will not clear the diff on the alltrac. should check into that.

where is the car incase you do not buy it? :wink:

Hey Mike, whatever happened to that 93 you bought? Do you still have it? Or have you sold it?
Just curious.
