: Baggin an 84 coupe
03-07-05, 03:27 AM
anyone got info on baggin an 84 coupe, front and rear? i got some for free to use til i get my hydros... also, anyone in the area got any 15 inch Chrome 100 spokes? anyone know anything about fixing the damn blower motor. anyone got any tips on fixing the wiper linkage... or hey, how bout the water pump. the car sat for 10 years, so im sure this is only the beginning of my problems. i will come back with more later.

also, i have heard the 4100 is total shit, so how easy would it be to drop a 71 camaro 350 in it, switch her to a carb, and all that fun stuff... until then, what kinda power is the 4100 making? and what trans does it have, 700r4?

if it runs good keep the 4100 till it blows up and throw an olds 350 or a big block caddy in it. I think the 4100 is like 130 hp and 200 ft/lbs torque....tranny should be a 200r4 i think

damn, that thing goes pretty good for 130 horses. are the big block caddys pretty easy to find, or what?

The big block Caddys are still fairly easy to find. They're cheap too. They came in 368, 425, 472, and 500 cubic inch varietys. A stock rebuilt 500 makes about 300hp and 500ft.lbs torque, that huge torque will really get that heavy car moving.
you are going with 15s? why not 13s? it would look better than 15s. 15s are dubs man on a lowrider. go with 13 or 14. bagging it huh? thats cool, how long til you get some hydraulics? good luck anyway, hope you get that thing runnin good.

i only want 15s for now because she has brand new whitewalls, but with how jacced up my speedo is (it shows me in KPH what im doing in MPH) the 13s might make it more accurate. as far as the hydros are concerned, i will prolly get them once i find a good deal on them, the bags im getting are totally free, so imma use those for now.
when she is done, she will be root beer brown with some silver metal flake, chrome wires, dual flows, flamethrowers, and a mural on the trunk. the mural will be the car hittin a 3 wheel with a skeleton arm holding a smoking pistol out the window, and the smoke spelling out Scandalous. only reason im gonna do it dark brown is thats the color of my carraige top and interior, the car is kinda a tan/gold now. no rust, but faded as hell. i think the brown will look tight tho.

i dunno tho, if i sticc with bags, i might throw down on some 22 inch blades.

i put a 79,425 big block in my 82 coupe,rebuilt it and bored it 60 over,it flys,and the motor bolted right in,

How do gas mileage treat you?

my gas mileage is crap, i am luccy 2 get over 11 in the city, and maybe 13-16 on the highway, maybe up to 20 if i can catch a draft from a semi.
