    WTF (What's This For)?

    When I got the GN this electronic device was under the hood on the driver side but was partially disconnected. Does anyone recognize it and What's This Fore? Is it ok to cut the last two wires and remove it? It has one wire coming from a connector on the back of the alternator and a the...

    What steering wheel do I have?

    I got a refurbished steering wheel from Sue and Joe. Mine is a lighter gray but the big problem is they are different steering wheels. The plastic collar will not fit on the back on the new wheel. The spline section is longer than mine. I didn't even try to mount the new wheel but I expect...

    console side panel?

    I seem to be missing a small side panel on the driver side of my console where it meets the carpet. Where can I find one? I haven't measured it but it's roughly 3" tall x 10" long.

    starter purple wire

    I am about to replace my factory starter with the mini starter. Thanks for the previous tips and help. I notice my factory starter has three wires going to the large bolt and none going to the small bolt where the purple wire should go. And I don't have a purple wire. I think the wiring has...

    Not sure if it's been mentioned but if you get the Velocity Channel, check out Garage Squad. They resurrected an 87 GN that had not run in years since it was purchased and had an engine failure. Congratulations, Edwin, for getting that beautiful GN back on the road again.

    Hood Spring hits Gbodyparts radiator cover plate

    I installed the stainless radiator cover plate from GBodyParts. Some of the larger coils on the hood spring hit the cover plate when closing the hood. Looks like I need just about 1/8" more clearance. REALLY hard to close the hood. For other that have had this issue, what's the recommended...

    Question on ATR wastegate hose connection?

    I know this sounds stupid, but should the pressure hose from the boost controller go to the bottom port on the ATR wastegate (below the diaphragm) or top port (above the diaphragm). I guess I don't really understand how it works.

    What is this sensor?

    Please educate me on this. This sensor is plugged into the electrical cable but not installed into the air intake anywhere. It was just laying against the inside fender well. I expect it is the original IAT sensor that went in the original air intake housing. But are there two different...

    I have RMI-25 and distilled water with 160 degree thermostat in a heated garage. What would be the minimum outside temperature that would be safe to start her in the garage then take it out and drive it? Will the water stay warm enough to prevent freezing in the radiator if the outside...
