    Introduction!

    Iíll apologize in advance if this doesnít belong here, but hello! Iíve always hovered around the turbo dodge scene, but I finally pulled the trigger on this Ď85 Dodge 600 convertible! Love it and willing to wrench on it. Seems the car needs a head gasket (smelling coolant in exhaust, keeps pushing air and consuming coolant). Regardless it runs and drives great. Bought it from a guy that is pretty well invested in these cars, Brad P. (lives in Indiana). He sent me the link to the forum, so here I am. I donít own a computer, so doing this on my phone is a pain....Iím trying to figure out my plan of attack on this thing....itíll be head gasket, send the head off to get checked, maybe ported and polished? (opinions encouraged). Probably a timing belt while Iím in there. Then Brad had mentioned mopar performance injectors, 2.5Ē exhaust and swing valve will really bring up the performance. It already has (I think) the Ď86 map sensor and computer...Not looking to set the world on fire with this thing, not racing or anything, just want a bit more pep and not have to reinvent the wheel in doing so. Thanks in advance! Cheers!

    Welcome to the site! A MP computer with bigger exhaust would probably be the hot ticket after you get everything in order.

    A 86 ECU will not run with 85 distributor. If you do use a 86 ECU and 86 distributor with a 85 engine, you'll loose power due to cylinder head design.

    Welcome. If you are using an Android, there is a app called Tapatalk that works very well. It is much easier than trying to use a web browser on your phone for this forum.

    Welcome to the group, and good luck with your project!

    It sure is way easier to add pics with Tapatalk.
    Its one of the only apps I found it worth buying up to the Pro key. I use an older version though, for the interface I liked better.
