new to me GSLSE

barn find GSLSE , with.a book full of receipt since 1994 , supposedly it was a bad engine , I bought it like that brought it home did a compression test and the engine is good. I removed the intake manifold, cleaned all that junk. Took injector to get service and yeap one injector was bad. Put everything back together replaced all fluids and drained tank. Car started right away. It runs good. I fixed the AC too.

thanks , it has 164k miles but it was well-taken care off. The trans was rebuilt, all The suspension replaced. I have a early 4 port 13B ”0 miles” rebuild. I was thinking once this engine one is done installing that one with a holley sniper system. I have a spare rebuild REW too.

What are your plans for the windshield replacement? Do you have a spare that you will have a company come out and install?

Nice. Someone did the big 3 upgrade! You have 3 fb's now right, or did you sell the earlier one?

That car cleaned up very well! The previous owner would be upset for selling the car if he saw those pics. Well done!
