    Trying to identify these turbines... (pics)

    Ignition questions (coil pack and module)

    So I'm doing the ignition conversion, swapping the '85-style for the '87-style, I have the conversion harness from Caspers, and I'm wondering about the coil pack and ignition module. Can I use the coil pack and ignition module from a late model 3800? Are these compatible with the '87-style...

    Intercooler idea...

    So now I have an intake manifold with ported runners and a stock intercooler. I was thinking about doing an EGR blockoff as the EGR is plugged solid. I will be removing the necks on the intercooler and doing a "big neck" conversion (of sorts). The intercooler will be mounted upside...

    Engine building stuff...

    I tried this in General Tech and got very few hits, but I'm thinking of pulling my engine to do some work on it. I just got a new ported intake manifold and a stock intercooler so I'm going to rig up a front mount Dutt. neck setup for my hot air. Now, I don't want to just rush in and just bolt...

    Doing some intake work...

    Hey all, I bought a used Hot Air intake from Bob at BM Computer Source, he's done some porting on it and looks like massaged the inside of the runners a bit, I was wondering what all can be done to one of these? I heard people are cutting them open and cutting out extra metal and removing EGR...

    Need a new 009 chip (special application)...

    ...Because this one is way too rich down low. I'm running 009's in my '85, with the '87ECM conversion. I'm still using the '85 MAF. Should I bite the bullet and just get a translator, extender, and LT1 MAF, or are there chip burners out there who are playing around with this stuff? Would someone...

    Top end power?

    Just thought back on a few track experiences and was thinking about picking up some top end power. I'd like to get the powerband to extend right to redline, probably another 500rpm or so. The engine is fresh (not stopping me from doing springs and seals next year) should I just open up the heads...

    Slick size?

    Hey, I'm building up for a low 12 high 11 setup and am curious as it is coming close to time to get slicks. Should I go with a 26" or 28" slick? 8.5" or 10.5 wide? Any other options you'd recommend? I'm using a modified IC, bigger 49-trim turbo and 009's, air bags, pinion snubber, seat and front...

    Anyone think of trying this?

    SO I have a spare intercooler and want to try this myself as a test. Think I could switch to an electric fan and place the stock '86/'87 IC in the stock location by just clocking the turbo and using some creative routing? Doesn't look to be too hard. Any thoughts on this? If I can get it to...

    Exhaust piping kits?

    Does anyone make a kit with just the piping? Something without mufflers, 2.5" mandrel bent, aluminized, that exits in the stock location? I'm running a turkey shooter off of my 2.5" dp and like it, but it's a little too in-your-ear. Would like to have it exit behind the car. Not worried abour...

    Spray thru for water/alchy?

    Hey is it possible to use an alchy kit which sprays thru the turbo? In the hot air config, it's a little hard to locate a nozzle between the turbo and intake.
