Description: 1989 Celebrity CL 4 door
4 speed automatic, 3.33 final drive
3.1 MPFI V6

My nicest car, nearly rust free. Typically only driven in summer. Originally a 2.8 MPFI engine, swapped in similar mileage 3.1 MPFI in 2004 after the radiator let out on the freeway and the head gasket blew.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: 3.1 MPFI engine. Gets 2-3 mpg better than the original 2.8 engine so Id call that an ecomod.

Grille block, airdam, wiper area cover, flat wheel covers, and moved radio antenna to inside. Partial boattail shell hinged for trunk access.

Acetone at 0.3 oz/10 gal appears successful so far when done properly.

Built a mpguino and it works great.

Planned Mods: Narrower tires, fixing balljoints and alignment AGAIN.

Lowering the rear now that 150+ lbs is out of the trunk.

Some small aero mods such as wheel covers, passenger mirror removal, front wheel flares. But this is my nicest car so everything will be 100% reversible.

Experiments with hydrogen boosters and tuning.

Would really like to change the final drive but that involves a full trans swap in this car so it probably wont happen.
