Re: New paint on 87 GN

The 650 HP is actually a low reading from the engine dyno (we had one peak of 675 HP) but it had a FLAT torque curve. This is the Recipe car and pretty tame combo. This was also using 104 octane...

Re: New paint on 87 GN

Key locks and handles are pretty close (my key locks and handles are black, but look almost anodized which may just be aging)

Headlight bezels are kind of a semi-gloss black.

Taillight bezels...

Re: Stage two heads

I think Scott's point was valid. Obviously, Stage 2 heads are going to have the max flow. Huge ports, different port offsets, huge valves ... and so on.

However, without either building a high...

Re: Reassembly

Alternator goes to the bottom stud on exhaust header. Compressor brace goes to the top.

Some of the holes on the compressor are because the bolts go all the way through.

Re: Turbo size

Measure the wheels on it is about the only thing I can suggest. There are SO many combination hybrid turbos that reuse stock or other housings, that it's rare you can find a stamping or part number...

Re: OIL FOR Rebuilt Motor

Weight is dependent on how the motor is set up (clearances for bearings, type of cam, etc.), but a safe bet is 5W-30 synthetic unless the builder opened up the clearances a bit, in which case, you...

Re: OIL FOR Rebuilt Motor

I always use a good quality oil (regardless of synthetic or not) and add a can of ZDPP for break in. Break in the motor, run it for 300-500 miles on the street and change the oil again with whatever...

Re: Water pump

TA pump is a nice piece ... however, the stock one is fine and works well. Just don't buy a crappy offshore piece.

The AC Delco has been in my car for many years:

Re: Down shift bump

It could be bad U joints (a relatively easy fix). With those miles, it's probably time for that anyway.

Be sure to get the non-greasable/permanent U joint replacements (a lot stronger).

Re: Cutting out under boost

That's a lot of ground to cover with very little information... some things to look at:

Make SURE it's only running 15 PSI ... is the gauge accurate? Is the boost line feed to the gauge leaking...

Re: Removing ac and heater core

If you don't care about A/C, resale or originality, it's not that big a project. Basically a plate and some sealer after you remove all the pieces/parts.

You'd need an A/C delete pulley (I think...

Re: Back pressure combo?

That looks like a solid combo ... I assume that "supporting mods" includes fuel pump/regulator and injectors (with matching chip)?

Also, you might consider a slightly larger turbo if you're going...

Re: Fusible links near to the starter

The fusible links are there as a failsafe ... I think I'd just lengthen the cables by adding on to the end of the existing cables (maybe even as simple as a bolt through the eyelets and another...

Re: Newby here

The 84/85 Riviera had a hot air turbo set up available and there have been a couple I've seen converted to intercooled (with a lot of custom piping and mounting). The front drive on that was kind of...

Re: Any good tranny shops out there BESIDES Jakeshoe and CK?

A couple others to try to talk to would be Century transmission (make sure you talk to Mike). He's been doing 200-4Rs forever and has a good reputation in the community. I've also heard a little...

Re: The stretch is finally in...

I just put a little piece of heater hose over that on mine ... I might have re-bent the brace angle a tiny bit to increase clearance too.

Re: The stretch is finally in...

You might want to consider putting a piece of rubber hose around the brace to prevent metal to metal contact ... or bend the brace just a little (it's the add-on brace for the Montes I believe, so I...

Re: fuel pump electrical supply, 1984 T-Type

Check fuel pump relay and oil pressure switch (for the non-priming problem).

The pressure sounds good, but the rough running/no start almost sounds like something electrical:

Re: Ticking Noise Diagnosis

If it's a lifter (not a valve) ... it's a PITA, but you can pull the intake manifold and get to the lifters (after removing the rockers and pushrods).

If it's a valve, you have a lot more problems...

Re: Ticking Noise Diagnosis

I would point to a sticky lifter ... especially since it seemed to change behavior after you poured in the MM oil.

However, as part of due diligence, I'd check:
