    Who did I piss off?

    Sodium silicate looks a lot like sugar, its what was used to quickly disable a cars engine when they ran the cash for clunkers programs. You were defintly screwed over, by whom or where you may never find out but don't rule out the sodium silicate, that's where my money is.

    OK cool, they had bad caps in their power supplies. I was going to suggest heating the power supply board up with a hair dryer / heat gun. If it powered up its the capacitors, glad you got it fixed, I've repaired a couple for friends, the caps dry out and TV does not power up or tries to power...

    Similar or better replacement for a TE45A?

    Te60-1 would very well with what you have and will not break the bank and will leave you some room to grow if you port and polish the heads and add a cam down the road. When mine needed to be serviced I went with a Garrett ball bearing center section and a ptrim wheel. Either way it had...

    RIP Charlie Frierson

    RIP, Charlie and I had never met but we had a few conversations as well when I was having issues with headers. He even offered up a drivers side header to me until I got my t/a performance unit and I'm all the way up in Canada!!!

    Canadian car purchase

    Where in Canada?? Not that hard to bring one from U.S. to Canada but not sure about the other way around. For me to bring a car from the US to here I had to have some paper work sent to the border crossing I was going to go through 72 hrs. in advance, it was pretty straight forward.

    Experienced tuning shop in the Ottawa, Canada area?

    Yup a few of us would try to get together on occasion but I work shift work so that's always made it a bit difficult. Sounds like you are on the right track though. We can try and meet up sometime for sure. I would try to make it to Hazeldean Mall cruise nights on Tuesdays but that's pretty much...

    Oil Smell

    I can't stand that oil smell, I had it when I had breathers on both valve covers, I installed a catch can and the smell is usually barely noticeable after some hard pulls. Clean that breather you have on the passenger side valve cover as it may be dripping onto the header, eliminate any other...

    I'm in Ottawa as well guys. Never mind finding a specific buick tuner here in this city, you can get some dyno time here though and there are a couple of us who can help out. If you don't already have one, I'd suggest a new modern chip which will at least allow some parameters, fueling and...

    AC Delco Ignition Module

    I know you said you want a Delco but as an alternative you can use standard motor products lx338 it works like a charm. I had a magna vox unit which did not run my aftermarket tach, it still worked well but the lx338 is perfect. It's been on the car for years and no issues.
