Exscuse me if i sound stupid but im new to these forums.
My buddy has a 1982 Fireburd that we have dubbed the fireturd because its cause on fire twice now. and its overall just a turd. Its a 2.8 v6 auto, the car has around 260k on it but the engine is in pretty good shape for the age. I was thinkign about buying it off of him once i get back from basics, and i was wondering if anyone has done a manual swap and what transmissions would work on it and if anyone has done a turbo 2.8.
Its a junkyard car with a salvage title so i was planning on making either a road-coarse or drift build out of it, so its not really worth much of anything.
Anyways if anyone has done this and can tell me if it would be a good idea to atleast use the chassis then that would be great, i dont know what to look for on these cars so any help is appreciated.
Side note, im gonna have a 305 laying around once i get my 383 built for my truck so if itheres nothing i can do to the 2.8 then ill build the 305 and throw a twin turbo cx racing kit on it
