|The present engine configuration of my car is an early 2.2 litre T1 engine with an A525 5 speed manual trans. The A525 is going bye bye and an A520 will soon be in it's place. This car is stock except for upgraded spark plug wires, a boost gauge out of a Shadow, & koni's out back. Other upgrades will follow. Trust me.|
||I added a boost gauge in one of the vents. The gauge I used was a square gauge that came out of a Shadow. I used a dremel to cut out the vent & trim the gauge to fit in the opening. I tapped into the dash lighting circut near the ash tray light so that the gauge was illuminated at night. I will say the print does come close to matching the other gauges. As you can see in the pictures the gauge is a little off center still. I need to get the dremel out and trim a little more away so that I get a better fit. All in good time though.|
Plans for the Car
I have also recently acquired a set of Late T1 manifolds w/1 piece intake, T1 airbox, vacuum harness, & I am working on acquiring a few other goodies I will need to convert to the later setup including a new logic module.. I think this car is going to be a blast to drive when I am done. If you want to learn more about converting an older T1 car to T2 or near status check out this page.
