Hello- I have a 1976 Dodge Dart Sport Lite Spirit of 76(whew I need a breather after that one....) Its box stock and am trying to decide what to do with it. I already have plans for brakes/suspension,interior,exterior...etc....where I am stuck is the motor! I want to keep things lite to go along with the whole "Dart Lite" theme.I am going to take out the orignal engine and trans and store the away for a later date when I may go back to stock. I dont want to cut the car up in any way! What I have : 1976 Dodge Dart Sport 225 Slant Six A-833 O.D Manual steering Manual front disc/rear drum brakes What I want : Its going to be a daily driver,and may see the 1/4, 3 times a year at MOST.Will probally see a auto-x track an average of once a month.Mostly around town driving,but want to be able to drive to Vegas and back (300 mile round trip) every so often,and mabey to florida and back once or twice a year! I dont expect to be the fastest on the road but I want to have a "fun" daily driver that may just happen to make the mustang and camaro kids do a double take,but be reliable and get decent gas mileage(with consertive driving of coarse!) So: Mild Slant Six 318/360 318/360 Stroker Aluminum heads/intake on any combo! 383/400 440/HEMI ??????? The car does not have a/c,but I want to add it with one of thoose modern compact/lightweight kits(small compressor,r-134a) from classic auto air or vintage air(dont want to cut up the firewall,and like how classic auto air all goes through the old blower motor location!) Has to be able to run on 91 pump,dont want to suffer m.p.g/performance by running 87,so I want to run 91! Also what do you guys think of just using the stock slant six k member with conversion mounts(IF I go with a V-8)??? I will of coarse be upgrading the T bars/bushings, and brakes! Let the ideas flow!
