Shelby Dodge OMNI GLH Commercial
The Dodge Omni and the similar Plymouth Horizon were front wheel drive cars
introduced by the Dodge and Plymouth divisions of the Chrysler Corporation
in North America in December 1977 for the 1978 model year. They were
based on a European Simca-based design of the same name. They were the
first of many successful front-wheel drive models, such as the Dodge
Aries/Plymouth Reliant and the Dodge Caravan/Plymouth Voyager which helped
return Chrysler to profitability.
The ultimate Dodge Omni was the modified Omni GLH. The original name,
"Coyote", was rejected, and Carroll Shelby's choice, the initials GLH,
which stood for "Goes Like Hell", were taken instead. 1984 was the first
year of the GLH, which carried over most of the modifications that had been
made the previous year to the Shelby Charger. 1985 was the debut of the
GLH-T model with the turbo I (K) engine
option. This engine, at low Boost
(7.2 PSi) coupled with the car's very low weight (as low as 2,200 lb (1,000
kg)), earned this car its name. The car carried over into 1986 unchanged
aside from the addition of a hatch-mounted third tail light, and production
was stopped. The final 500 GLH-T cars (all black) were sold to Shelby, who
used them as the basis for the 1986 Shelby GLHS ("Goes Like Hell S'More").
These cars were modified by Carroll Shelby in California and sold as
Shelbys. With 175 horsepower (130 kW) and 175
lb·ft (237 N·m) of torque, the Shelby GLHS was a modified 2.2 with a turbo 2 setup which included a 2 piece blow
through intake (the GLH-T was a draw through turbo design) shelby ecu, Boost was raised to a conservative 12psi, T2
turbocharger compressor cover and a
The short block stayed the same between the GLH-T and GLHS. Further
modifications included 205/50R15 Eagle GT Gatorback tires mounted on Shelby
Centurian wheels, Koni adjustable struts and shocks, and stiffer springs.
Different decals were also part of the package. Silver pin stripes down the
ground fx along with "SHELBY" decals replaced the standard red GLH-T
decals. A "SHELBY" decal was added to the windshield and a large "GLHS"
decal on the driver side rear sail panel. All GLHS cars came with a
numbered dash plaque, Mobile 1 valve cover plaque, MOMO shift knob and
Shelby leather wrapped steering wheel and A black/yellow overlay sticker
was placed at the bottom of the speedometer to read to 135 mph.

This car is fueled with E85 ethanol gasoline. Running MegaSquirt for fuel

How NOT to remove your engine.
Subscribe to my channel, I'm always posting great videos!
About this video, I know this is a bad idea. There were some idiots on the
turboDodge.com forums suggesting that
this was a good idea. I needed to get a blown motor out of my car, so I
setup the camera and demonstrated exactly what can go wrong with this
method. Honestly, I tried to get it down gracefully, in the end I guess I
was lucky it didn't knock the car over in the process. Let this be a lesson
to all, use an engine crane. At least in cars where it's not designed to
come out the bottom.
