For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

1984 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z

So this is not a conversion. But My father-in-law got a 1984 daytona turbo z off of his buddy who has owned it since it was brand new.

The car has 56K on it and starts up half way descent. Trying to figure out why its burning rich, causing back fires and sputtering.

I figured its just because it has sat for soo long that it just needs the cob webs blown out.

Probably failed vacuum lines, a bad coolant temp sensor or a bad oxygen sensor. The Chrysler 2.2 and 2.5 turbos were notorious for vacuum line issues. I've had several over the years and they are pretty robust once the vacuum lines are sorted and the sensors are in good working order. Plan on changing the belts, hoses and headgasket on one that has been sitting a bit.

Check out the following sites:

Both should help you get it sorted.

Good luck!

Hello i had one of these cars. Check the computer under the passanger seat. these cars where bad for rusting under that area and the computer gets wet and plays games. I removed mine and wrapped it in plastic to keep it dry.

I had an 89 Daytona Shelby Turbo Z

With the enhancements it would beat anything out there. But it would pop a head gasket on a monthly basis.

There was a Shelby Daytona sitting in a field by my house in Texas for the longest time. I went to look at it twice and both times I lifted the hood a copperhead was sitting right on the shock tower. After that second time I never went back and it was eventually taken somewhere.
