Depends on how much money you want to spend. Aside from opening the engine up and doing a complete re-bore, with new heads, no one thing will increase power very much. Each thing you do adds to the equation. Dual exhaust will help, but not much. Free flow air filter will help but only at high rpms. This engine has too little power for this size car. The 350 would be a better choice. Go to www.summitracing.com for some ideas.
u wont pass emission, but nothing u will get more horse power.
body style, and more B>S electronics and engine size................1979 was a much better car.
The answer is simple. It's all in the trim. The Caprice for that year was basic. Nothing, if anything, powered. Mostly manual windows, bench seat, manual to move seats, just a plain car. The Classics and Broughams were the elite or more classy and better powered versions. In the law enforcement communities, all caprice models were used. For more information, take a look at www.9c1.net.
A supercharger would have a dramatic effect.
6 to 8 quarts no more then 10 quarts
If Im Not Mistaken, There Was No Base Model For 1996, There Was Only The Classic Model. The Impala SS has a heavy duty suspension and a good deal more power. It has 17 inch wheels and low profile tires.
Need a little more info, like what year would be helpful. Then we can get into what to do for timing.
It should tell you on the air conditioning unit but it's more than likely R12. I have an '89 Caprice and it takes R12.
on what part of the car?wheels,heads,intake manifold...you must be more specific!
Ya......... In your dreams ZZZ
# The oil pan is in the center, almost directly between the two front tires. When you look under your car, you can see two pans. The oil pan will be the smaller of the two, more to the front, and will have a bolt in the corner of it.
get rid of the TBI or go with an aftermarket throttle body,Headers,hi perf ignition
caprice. hands down. quicker acceleration, better handling, more power, better stopping, higher top speed, larger aftermarket support. plus if you're rear ended in a caprice it wont blow up like a crown vic thanks for the info but atleast with a crown vic i will have fire works every Canada day
yes im about to do exactly that to my 1991 on 26" player 728 rims, needs more power to burnout 26s but im puttin a 502 its gonna take some fabrication work..new motor mounts and with more power comes reinforcing the frame
Yes they will fit , But you will notice no change what soever. ( no more power )
This depends on the year and generation of Caprice as well as specific accessory options. Around 1971 the Chevy Caprice weighed about 4,000 pounds, while in 1976 it weighed about 4,300 pounds. Various years had similar weight, however in the early 80s an effort was made to reduce weight. I own a 1985 Caprice Classic and it weighs over 4,500 pounds -- it has a V8 engine and several options that add weight to it. In 1991 the style and engineering of the Caprice changed a great deal. The cars were lighter -- overall about 4,000 pounds. The Chevy Caprice Wagons generally weighed more than sedans and coupes.
A Classic Caprice is a more upscale caprice, sort of like a separate trim level. Classics included small upgrades to the regular caprice, but not quite enough to warrant a trim designation.
id take the rocket my self it has a little more power than the Chevy 350
Most likely it is a 4L60-E 4spd automatic which is nothing more than a Turbo-700R4 w/ all the fun electrical components
Install a Super-Charger or Turbocharger.
dodge and chevy are mostly the same but dodge has more power so go with the dodge
If a catalytic converter is indeed bad, it's far more cost-effective to replace it rather than try to repair it
The film "Christmas Vacation" starring Chevy Chase was released in 1989. You can get more information about this film online at the Internet Movie Database and Wikipedia.
I had a 95 Impala SS with the lt1 350 and a friend with a Camaro lt1 and as I understand it the main difference was the Caprice 9c1/ Impala SS LT1 had more torque than the Camaro and Corvette versions since it was a heavier car and thus had a slight less horse power. on a side note when I raced a corvette with a LT1 we were head to head, the corvette was stock and my only modification was a cold air intake. hope this helps you
The Chevy Impala (which closed out in 1996 along with sister Caprice) replaced the Lumina in 2001. Although it was assopsed to replace it in 2000 Chevy decided to keep it 1 more year. That final year sales plunged down to half of the previous. THEY STILL MAKE LUMINAS! But not in north america.
