Omni GLH Turbo project

Well my buddy picked up a long time ago an Omni GLH Turbo which back in it's prime was running mid 11s. Ripped out the interior and all that yesterday, floor pans up front are trash. Interesting fact GLH stands for "Goes like hell" these things were beating on 5.0s in the 80s.

He's going N/A For starter, it's going to be a DD Rally car/Ice Racing car.

It's more then likely getting a rebuilt n/a DOHC neon motors for starter, if not for sure a SOHC. He would be running the motor it had because it was a high boost built motor but neon motors are cheaper and more reliable. It's staying N/A then going turbo we have 3 turbos in hand to choose from.

drop off



Interior, and 3 stomped mice bastards


The not so pleasant suprise



9/5

Cut out the spare

**** floors

Engine bay simple greened and pressure washed, much nicer to work when you're not in a greasy mess

harness out


Mopar shop


Pressure washed


Donor car


more progress So far we have about 8 hours into the whole ****, I'd say we're going pretty good. I was a little off on the weight all said and done should be round around 1700, but we will also be trying remove what ever else possible after.

Core support who needs em?


pushing the car away




Motor was out in right around 20 minutes.

9/16
Got the wiring laid out, going to start making the dash and **** tomorrow









hate troll do what ever you gotta do

I love those. Back when F&F came out, a guy in my hometown built his to run 12's. He then proceeded to rice the heck out of the body, to make fun of what the kids did to their cars. The look on their face whe they got beat on by a teal with white stripes 80's omni with a huge *** home made aluminum spoiler was priceless.

Good Luck, hope it turns out great

may seem like a dumb question, but if that neon is n/a, then why the bigger hood?

Yeah they really are a love/hate kind of thing. I like them only that body style though i think the newer ones are hideous. I'd love to get my hands on an ACR

my neon was more of a hate relationship. no a/c, 3 speed auto, slow turd, etc.

i know they have decent potential with the 5 speed, but there's just other, similar cars i'd mod before it.

yeah thing nice about neons is they're EVERYWHERE parts are dirt cheap motors are cheap he knows them in and out like the back of his hand as he was a dodge tech. I know how you feel though i had an auto 3 speed sohc turd box. But the DOHC with the 3:94 tranny is actually pretty damn fun to drive.

considering the whole interior is gutted, dash heater box anything that isn't needed for the car to run and drive is gone and it weights in light to begin with. I think it weights in at 2100lbs stock. It may be a bit more then 1500 but not that much.
