'83 Capri RS, 331 Turbo

'83 RS, orig 5.0, 5 spd, a/c car. Meticulously restored in the winter of '10/'11. At that time, the car was stripped and sandblasted. The right frame rail from the firewall forward, radiator support, cowl, roof skin and right quarter were replaced. The car was then painted in Dupont waterbase Ford Performance White. Last year a Boss block 331, with Trickflow 170 heads, stage 1 cam and Holley systemax intake was built by Danbury Competition (Joe Lapine). They are THE Ford engine builders in the area. When the engine went in, I added a Gen 1 Hellion turbo kit with a comp 65/67 turbo. This spring the 8.8 was beefed up with 31 spline axles and a Eaton TruTrac. The car is powered by a Megasquirt MS3X. The car needs a clutch as the new engine and turbo combo pushes through it under full boost. It also needs a final tune.

Ton of spare parts to go with it.

Dont have to sell the car, but I'm trying to get into a newer car.

$13,000 OBO

Im pretty sure the Hellion kit is designed to use with the factory ac, but I would look into that further if you want it back in. The evaporator is still under the dash, and i do have all the pieces, except a good compressor, for the system.
