    That’s my B7 blue 1970 Plymouth Fury with factory painted roof.
    I rescued the car last summer from a yard not far from my house, is all original paint and is super solid and has a nice patina in my eyes, the Fury was the last time on the road in 1992 and when I got the car it was all original with the dry sized 318 in it and a sun backed interior no keys and broken steering column, after I picked the car up it was sitting in one of my storage places for a few months and I not even looked at it.
    And one day it came to my head that I have to go and have a closer look at the car and have to decide what I will do with it, I was not sure if I will part it out or not when I had a closer look at it I decided the car was to nice and I came up with the idea to build a fast Fury that can be driven every day and also on long road trips with good fuel mileage.
    I went ahead and redid the whole suspension and brakes new fuel tank from Holley with internal fuel pump new Magnaflow stainless steel exhaust system, new 727 trans with 2800 stall and stage 2 shift kit the engine is an upgraded eagle Hemi and for sure new interior. 4BAB44E6-8E11-47F1-A3FF-6C9828BD66B7.jpeg 028AA31B-2D8C-45C9-B500-EB3AFF89BD04.jpeg C8651290-159A-47CD-BD2C-EBAEBB32512F.jpeg A28D890F-B9A0-4D25-AAFE-F184848B20F5.jpeg 1261FC97-FEB6-4EFC-A3CD-6B6C7A04A0D3.jpeg 4A5AF661-B629-4B97-927B-2538058A24C0.jpeg 2870C43F-A509-4BD6-852E-93933B3F6C63.jpeg 0E96BA23-915F-43C2-BB7E-8F275EFDE436.jpeg 423158E7-B168-40A3-8F24-1C65CDF4557B.jpeg

    (2800 stall speed and "good fuel economy on trips"?)

    Car looks goooood. What was necessary to mate the Gen III Hemi/727 to the car? What computer and such? Just curious.

    Thanks,

    The new style hemis bolt right up to the 727 transmissions, the engine mounts and power steering pump is from Holley and I use the Holley Terminator X system with VVT control there is quite a bit of fabrication involved but nothing to crazy. Change the oil drain plug location on the Milodon oil pan , fabricate your own trans mount, fabricate the exhaust system and play around with the alternator.
    I used an 92mm LS throttle body and made my own lockdown cable and bracket and same with gas paddle cable.
    The stall of the tc has nothing to do with the fuel mileage at the end, I’m not done with the Fury yet it will see a 6 speed Tremec in the future and maybe a Dana with 3:23 gears.

    I might respectfully disagree a bit with the stall speed issue. Fuel economy might not vary much AFTER you learn to drive the car with a looser torque converter. When I put a OEM NOS '81 Z/28 / Corvette THM350 in my '77 Camaro, I immediately lost about 2mpg with my 2.56 rear axle ratio compared to what it had been. Only change was the looser torque converter (with the electreic lock-up not hooked up). After I learned a bit more steady throttle foot, most of that mpg loss was reclaimed. And that was not with that much looser of a converter, certainly not 2800rpm. Of course, with the right gear in the back so that the cruise rpm is cloase to the un-throttled-into lockup rpm, things can probably work better? Of course, the stall rpm can depend upon the power in front of the converter, too.

    Just my experiences,
    CBODY

    That’s right , you can’t run a high hp engine with a stock converter the engine would not perform right.
    On the other end I would never put a high stall converter behind a fairly stock engine that will screw up your gas mileage big time.

    Engine swap technology has zoomed by me so fast that half of the stuff you talk about is way above my head.
    I don't even know how FI works yet. :rofl:

    Took the Fury for a drive today and I have to say I’m pretty impressed with the performance E7FB801E-42DE-4027-814D-12B365387FC8.jpeg 1E5E2B9D-374A-4829-8E4B-F03C487501CB.jpeg
