    What are you talking about with coilers and camber plates. I've looked everywhere for stuff like that for my CSX and Sundance.

    So, who all is making it out to SDAC with their car? #42 should be there.

    Up in the air between my CSX and my 87 Shelby Z. I need to reseal the end of the trans on the CSX, it's leaking pretty bad when driving.

    Re: The Shelby CSX-VNT Owner's Thread

    Unfortunately, I need some information on Shelby specific parts for insurance purposes. Does anyone know of a place which might have an NOS engine bay wiring harness? How about the side GFX? Who has one piece VCs anymore? Any of the Shelby oil caps left anywhere? If not, I'm trying to compile a list of ebay auctions and ads. I'm afraid this isn't going to be fun.

    Pretty much any suspension modification puts you into SMF.

    I have some of the door pieces but not the actual ground effects. The oil caps were from Positive Impressions,I think. The stock cap was just black plastic over a metal base.

    Thanks for the reply. I know I'll need the belt moulding and gfx, but I'm hoping that I don't need any of the stuff higher on the door. The oil cap I have on the car is one of the old Shelby catalog pieces. It will need replaced also.

    Thanks a ton. If I had to guess, I'm thinking that I'll be collecting a bunch of TM and TD ads along with ebay ads for this.

    I need the right side moulding.

    Re: The Shelby CSX-VNT Owner's Thread

    Another thing I need to know is how Shelby modified the harness etc. for the VNT conversion. I'm assuming that they just cut off the connector for the power board and reterminated the ends for the 60 way? Then they just ran the new wires for the extra solenoids and this was all using a stock TI Shadow harness?

    To be clear, do you need the part of the ground effects at the bottom of the door (like in the second picture here: http://www.turbo-mopar.com/forums/sh...l=1#post729595)? Or only the part of the ground effects like in the first picture of that post? Or both?

    I do have a pair of the parts for the bottom of the door, and I think I might have belt molding.

    I don't think Shelby installed the VNT. I am nearly certain he got a batch of cars with the VNT installed (as an advanced intro) from the factory. It would not have been economically feasible for him to change out the engine and wiring harness. He would have had to get smog certification also, in that case.

    Re: The Shelby CSX-VNT Owner's Thread

    I think I remember reading somewhere that he got the harnesses complete from Chrysler as an early delivery of the soon to be 90 Shadow VNT. So I don't think it's anything spliced. And I've never noticed anything that l looks spliced on the 89's I've worked on.

    I must have missed what happened and why you need this info. I went back a page on this thread and didn't see anything either.

    I have several sets of the side ground effects and the door inserts. They're not really for sale, but I can put a price on them if that will help you with what you are looking for.

    Yep, it appears I was mistaken. According to the Shelby Registry, Shelby was sent TII Dodge Shadows which he converted to TiV by adding the VNT turbo and wiring harness.
