    New Valve Covers. Now Smokes Under Boost.

    The breather stands are welded on the covers. Then the breathers just press in to the top with a grommet. Nothing appears to be leaking. I opened the hood and all is clean and smoke free. Thanks for the reply.

    New Valve Covers. Now Smokes Under Boost.

    Thanks for the reply. What I should have mentioned is I pulled over and took the breathers out. Then I did another rolling 15 psi pull. Same story. I’m guessing these block off plates have something to do with it: Gonna have to take them back off,inspect and remove these round deals…

    New Valve Covers. Now Smokes Under Boost.

    So I had a local shop that I trust remove my stock covers and replace them with the ones pictured. Now my GN smokes like crazy over 15 psi. My first thought was they took my car out and beat the crap out of it. Nope. Anyone else have this issue? These are the new covers:

    ‘87 GN.. Are the front seat buns and covers symmetrical?

    I have just a little wear on the drivers seat bottom. My thought is to have an upholstery shop swap the bottom cushions and covers from side to side. Factory interior. Are they the same? Thx.

    BLM Stuck at 145. ‘87 GN

    You nailed it. I installed a new AC Delco O2 and the BLM’s are now +\- 5 of 128. And I was wrong about there being a Delco in there. There was a Denso in there that a TR shop up here in the northeast said they changed out. They didn’t. I also bought a smoke machine. Found one tiny leak...

    looking for recommendations on body mounts.

    The Bilsteins I bought had to be the B6 series. It was about 10 years ago.

    BLM Stuck at 145. ‘87 GN

    Note: When in cruise this car was nearly always +\- 5 of 128 on the Scanmaster or laptop when connected to the PowerLogger. This 145 thing is recent and I really don’t want to drive it this way. I’m scared to death to bring it to a repair shop. We know what’s gonna happen. I’m thinking...

    Yes. That’s something I routinely do and make sure everything is tight. Thanks for the reply.

    BLM Stuck at 145. ‘87 GN

    Ok. I’ve got an AC Delco in there now. Has maybe 5,000 miles on it. I’ll give it a try. Anything else? Thx!

    looking for recommendations on body mounts.

    I put Bilsteins on the front of my GN and they felt like a steel bar was welded in there instead of a shock. Horrible. I couldn’t even compress them by hand. Had to use a separate jack to compress them to get the lower bolts in. I took them off and sold them. KYB’s instead. Body...

    BLM Stuck at 145. ‘87 GN

    BLM is stuck at 145 unless I decelerate. I have checked for vacuum leaks and have found none. The car runs great. What else coukd cause the high BLM? Thx!

    1987 Turn Signal Stalk. A good one.

    I know there are stalks for sale but the ones I’ve seen look and feel like cheap knock-offs. The font is different and it just feels loose and cheap. I’m looking for a stalk that has everything on it. Cruise and intermittent wipers. I have 5 cars that take these so I’m looking. Thx

    GN Header Panel.

    I buy from them when I can. Unfortunately they don’t have as big of stock as other vendors. Didn’t know they had a header panel. The last time I looked they didn’t. Maybe they have some reviews..?

    GN Header Panel.

    I’m still looking for a quality header. I started this thread a long time ago. Looking forward to an honest review of this latest header panel. What happened to spoolfool? Supposedly he was gonna offer a header panel.
