Thumbs down well this it it.

so as some of the guys saw at the meet this week my cars not in the greatest shape,today i was working on the car and a bolt broke in the ac pump. being tierd i sat there thinking i was going to stop fixing it and look for something better.

but hey,gotta love the old bitch,i was raised in that car after all.
so instead of getting anothere car well im going to spend some money and lots of time to fix her up.

so what i now need is both exaust sections from a 2.7L from the headers to the resonator.
my car is darn loud,and not in a good way,i have an exaust leak on both flexibles.
scrap yard quotes me at 400 per side! someone must have these for cheep? ross?
and i also need an engine subframe mine is on the going bad side.
as far as rust goes when everything fixed up the car getting bodywork and new paint.
so anyone have the downpipe or a subframe laying about? can pick up if distance is ok.
ill go all the way to ontario if needed.

lets get this show on the road!

Why not take the oportunity of needing exhaust and subframe, and do a 3.5 swap? You just need to find a donor car that has a good sub frame and tubes, and just drop the 2.7 out for the 3.5... You might be able to buy a complete parts car out of a junk yard, pull what you want, put your old parts back on it, and send the car back to the junk yard whole and complete - and make some of your money back!

I had an exhaust and subframe for your car, it was even the same color(not that it mattered) until last week, gone now. Good luck on the search

ac is now fixed,took the pump out and was forced to do new treads and use an oversized bolt.power steering is allso fixed.

now next on the list is the e brake

and about the brake booster,a few days ago the pedal went stif and when the pedal is pressed whit the engine started it will sound like air is leaking,also brakeing has became sligthly less efective(i need to brake more in advance)

im thinking my booster has gon bad,what about you guys what do you think´.

Very likely the brake booster needs replaced... About $80 at the local parts store, highly recommend getting the proper clip at the dealer that connects the rod to the pedal under the dash - only like, $6 or so, IIRC.
