Might be joining the ranks of the boosted.

So I found a cheap 89 GT. Only has 2 probs. 1 - Blown head gasket. 2 - Blown radiator.

What should I look for as far as problems?

What does a stock PGT dyno at?

The stock HP is 145. But it's torque makes it feel like more. That engine can take a lot of abuse. When you rebuild it check for a cracked block. If the head gasket blew the shock from the cold coolant may have damaged the block.
You sould have lots of fun with this car. :s6:

Rebuild my ass! I'm replacing the gasket and radiator then taking that sucker to the dealer to see what else is wrong.

Yes I said dealer. I'm gonna get the Probe very cheap and will be able to afford the butt raping prices.:s6:

it's about time you consider the 1st gen gt :) i was expecting you to get one back when you lost your 2nd gen :( trust me you will enjoy driving that car. although stock hp is only rated at 145, it packs alot of torque (190lb-ft). it is so easy and cheap to make it even faster. it has a lot of topend power and can take on a lot of cars with more hp on the highways. ie: cars like the 00-02 mgt will take a slightly modified 1pgt in the 1/4 but on the highways, a race to topspeed.... we simply rule :D

If the price is right (yeah what IS the price Mr. Goat?) get it. I plan on doing the same in the near future... then I'll be busy for the time I save up for the Altima :D
