88 Conquest "THE PILE"
« on: August 10, 2015, 07:53:24 PM »
New to SQP but not quests, I am Speedy2222 on SQC and quite a few other boards. I recently bought a house less than a mile from a major drag strip, I went once with my 87 and loved it. However i realized i needed a dedicated car. So this is quest # 6 for me, an 88 SHP. I picked it up from a member who couldn't get it to run right, but it is the perfect base for what i am wanting, which is a sleeper. Kind of hard to do with these but i feel the look and sound can pull it off, and performance would be there too if i hit my goal of 350+. 

This is going to be more of a progress/results thread and i get further into it.

The Plan:
Mx-6 2.2 turbo intake for MPI
install my Fidanza
Big turbo( currently 50 trim ebay )
larger intercooler and hard pipes
install my walbro 255
aeromotive FPR
Leave body how it is but shave and paint engine bay gloss red.
Meth?
Lots of GNT parts


So onto pics of how it sits now! Hope you enjoy this project, i know i will!

He is a gypsy. Roams Indianapolis mostly but can. Spotted around by me from time to time lol. Mostly meets and parts runs. But an occasional fuel pump swap here and there.

LOL Thanks Tye. Located on the west side of Indianapolis less than a mile from Lucas Oil Raceway. Definitely here to learn how to go fast.  I do have a microsquirt here but i am really unsure what i will need to get it to be able to work on my car.

Well I made some small amount of progress tonight. Swapped out injectors, got it to actually idle. Also installed my GNT Performance short throw. Definitely going to have to put one of those in every quest i ever own. MX-6 intake showed up yesterday, greddy turbo timer showed up, and although i won't need it soon i bought a Miller eci checker for a pretty good price, so maybe it will help me atleast figure out what's going on right NOW with some of the settings and sensors.

Welcome too the mayhem

thanks Joe!

Update: Engine is toast i believe :( . When the car starts warming up oil pressure drops, Also changed the oil and there's still alot of moisture on the dipstick. Found a guy just up the street with a speed shop that i am going to be working with on getting this thing rebuilt and back up to making some good power.

I know right, might as well do a 4g or 1jz/2jz swap now and just get it over with.

On another note met a local race shop owner and went to him for a quote on getting the machine work done on the block. $1500  :o  Needless to say i won't be using them.

That was a joke actually.

$1500 just for machine work? Did you contact Randy at EMS? he has a banner on here. Hell, Ill rebuild it for $1500ish and throw in some parts.
