Well, Ive been here for a while, and figured i'd might as well make one of these..lol

Heres my 86 Dodge Diplomat, AHB package. Right now, its got 190,000 plus miles (i assume) and ive been spending the last year or so fixing all of the neglect that was sent its way before i got it. I paid 500 bucks in jan. '10 and have since replaced the choke, starter, numerous hoses, all belts, fuel filter, battery, ground cables, water pump, timing cover and chain, fuel lines, and done other little things like routine maintenence, and whatnot.

Currently, its being used as my daily driver, so im going to start things off by doing the magnum head swap to my current 318. Probably adding a new cam, and possibly headers..if my spending money allows. Once i can park the car, and have had my fun with the 318, im going to yank it in favor for a 360 magnum/727 trans/3.23 or 3.55 gear, leaving the 8 1/4. I also have plenty of body work to do, along with redoing the interior, freshening up the suspension, and a lot of wiring changes. When its done, itll be my summertime fun ride, and will be built to cruise, run down the strip well, and do autocross well.

The first picture was taken the day i got the car. The second was taken 1 year after i got the car. The third was taken in early July, after a detailed wash and wax. The fourth is the intake, and carb being used for my engine build. An intake off of a 340, and a Thermoquad off of a 440.

**update**

Picked up a set of magnum heads for $35 on craigslist. Pulled off of a 99 Durango, they look pretty clean. I havent gotten to clean them up yet, but i plan on it shortly. The seller also included the intake/throttle body/injectors and all that. All of the computer stuff and wiring isnt there for it, but if anyone wants it..let me know.

*Update*
Well, im gonna update here what im doing this spring. I just finished installing a new oil pressure gauge; an electrical one so i dont have hot oil leaking in the car. I mounted it under the radio-taking out the ash tray since i have no use for it.

Im also currently getting the magnum heads prepped and gathering parts for the magnum head swap. I'll also be putting a mild cam in at the same time, and replacing the harmonic balancer, and possibly even removing the A/C.

Once those things are done, it'll be back into maintain only mode..saving for a replacement DD to drive around so i can put the Dip up and start redoing it.

Here are pics of that gauge.

Ok, so Im just about ready for the Magnum head swap..heres an updated pic of my intake/heads/carb. I think I am gonna try that thermoquad on this one..but im not sure yet. Im also going to repaint the rims this summer, and match the trunk to the rest of the car..lol, and that'll prolly be all for this year.

Update 10/20/12;

Well, things have changed a bit since I last posted. Weve fixed the front suspension, brake lines, and done some other maintenence type things. I also picked up an magnum M1 dual plane intake for my swap. I also picked up another 318 to build on the stand since my cop motor is hurt.

Heres a picture of the intake, and the aspen motor as it sits right now. Hopefully over the winter, I can get it built and ready for spring.

I've got it on my photobucket, it just wasn't on the computer and I didn't think to download it. Besides, if I can ever get out of work early enough to still have daylight, I've got another picture I wanna take.  :evil:

Sweet car! What's with the blacked out grille and bezels? Is that on purpose or a previous owners doing? I have a set of decent bezels if you want them.
