I have 2 friends with them. One eventually took his off because of numerous problems, the other still has his, but his truck is constantly down. I have also seen quite a few posts on here of people having problems.SummerWolf said:LOL @ goofy guy, hopefully he'll be first in line when the track opens up!
Anyways, what turbo 2.2 are turning out to be unreliable? Name them. cause that really isn't the case....
I did a V8 swap on my 84' for 2k, and that included rebuilding the engine. I don't know what turbo kit you can find for less than 2K. And then you can compare HP.....SummerWolf said:yeah.
If you're looking for common, go to the V8 forum....get all your issues about swaps out there, we don't wanna hear about it here.
250 HP could motivate these trucks to low 14's in theory.....thats pretty quick out of a 4 banger truck that still gets 28-30 something MPG when driven conservatively....and V8 swaps cost a lot of money.....more than a turbo will...
I looked into a 97 LT1 and T56 and it was going to end up costing me over 6,000 every part I needed was in that price though, and to be emissions legal in my state I had to go with a 98+ block (but figured I could find a way to make a 97 pass) Theres a lot to think about, but take the V8/V6 swap to another forum, we hear that shit day in and day out and hardly ever does someone act on it.
Your friend had a badly tuned truck if he was only running 7 lbs and blowing head gaskets.
