    MONTE CARLO 6L80e question

    I'm preparing to do a 5.3/6L80e swap in my '88 monte carlo. I was hoping to get a nicer looking Holley shifter instead of the stock 4 speed auto shifter the car came with. How exactly would that work? This is the shifter I was planning on getting - (shifter) I saw a thread somewhere here that...

    New 87 MC SS Owner Here

    Hi everyone, After quite a long time away from trolling these boards, I am back! I think it is approaching time for me to invest some major cash into my 87 SS, as I've been saving for quite a while. I have a 87 Monte Carlo SS with T-tops. Unfortunately, the car's been to H and back, and a...

    MONTE CARLO Tell-tale panel part

    Does anyone know where I can find a tell-tale housing/filter? I've checked a couple websites online and can't seem to find it. Even reproduction gauge clusters do not come with it.

    Vacuum Line Routing

    Hope everyone is doing well. So, I have a vacuum diagram for my 84 MC. I'm trying to confirm the routing. Per the picture, is the top port of the EFE/TVS valve/sensor mating via a t-connector to the "L" hose from the carb before they connect through the merged single line to the AIR management...

    MONTE CARLO Possible 350 swap

    I am currently looking around for a small block 350 to switch out my current 305 with. My dad and I within the past 2 years put in a new carburetor, intake, headers and made the exhaust true dual instead of the factory Y pipe. How much of that would be compatible with a 350? It's also a T-top...

    MONTE CARLO Rim question

    Hello everyone, I'm currently looking for new rims and tires and wanted some advice. I currently have 18 inch chrome IROC replicas that slightly scrape on the frame up front if I turn the wheel completely in both directions. I'm not the biggest fan of the stock rally rims that we have in the...

    BUILD THREAD 1988 Monte Carlo SS Frankenstein project

    Here's roughly 3 years of work on a t-top MCSS. We're doing a full restomod, floor, quarters, t-top portion of the roof.

    Hi all, I’m in the middle of restoring an 88 SS, and I’m looking to replace the part of the trunk that the lid closes in front of. I’ve heard people call it the rear body panel or the taillight panel. I’ll attach a picture, but I also want to replace the metal lip that is under the trunk‘s...

    Just got my '84 Monte

    Always wanted a blue Monte SS, and now I have one. Stock 305, 350 trans, bench seat, column shift. She's a cruiser, not a runner. Much work to be done, replacing most of the interior.....maybe future LS/4L80E swap?

    New member: Monte Carlo

    Hi all, my name is Jaden and I am a proud owner of my 1982 Monte Carlo. My dad bought this car up in Georgia for himself because my first car was actually a 69' VW Beetle. We sold the beetle cause of the rust issues and the Monte became my new ride. We bought it from the original owner who was a...

    Can I use El Camino replacement axle back frame rails on a Monte Carlo?

    Found a guy selling the kit for $100 a side, but the EC has two body mounts on the rail and the MC has one. Are they identical otherwise? Can I just cut off the extra body mount if necessary and use the EC rail?

    Just picked up a clean 82 Monte Carlo for a frame off lowrider build/swap

    What’s up guys? Posting from the Jersey/Philly area. Not sure if there’s any love for low lows here, but that’s what I love and what I’m building. I got the car with 65K original miles for $4000. It’s a great foundation for my plans with minimal rust. While this isn’t my first G (had an 83...

    MONTE CARLO C6 corvette mirrors on ‘84 mc doors

    Hey everyone, I have a 1988 mc ss that I’ve been working on with my dad and had a few questions. The car itself is an ‘88, but it has ‘84 doors (and mirrors) on it. The previous doors were in rough shape and we found a pair that had been in a garage since roughly 1990. I was at a car show...

    Dip Stick tube issue

    I just had my oil changed yesterday, and while I was driving home, a loud (louder than the exhaust) ticking noise starting coming from somewhere in the engine bay. When I got home, I narrowed it down to the tube that holds the dip stick. Is this an easy fix to tighten it up, or should I go back...

    15x7 rally wheel specifications

    Hello I am interested in putting a set of 15x7 rally wheels on my 85 Monte and am unsure about what backspacing to get. With that being said, I am planning on putting some stock looking tires on it. The only 15x7 rally wheels I can find online have 4.25 inches of backspacing. Will that look and...
