  1. Cape Cod GN

    Car makes boost but it's really slow.

    13xTurbo did you ever resolve this? Sounded like a Cam Sensor with the studdering.

    Repainting rims idea

    WE4REAL that’s good to know. How long did it take you per rim? Did you prep at all?

    Repainting rims idea

    So after attempting to tape my rims for a respray (and it taking hours for one) I came up with an idea to flat black rustoleum oil based paint and a hairdryer to cure it with some heat. They have held up for a month now on a few cruises. It took me less than 45 min a wheel. I had mineral spirits...

    Need help identifying frame connectors

    Thanks Hotfoot. If you look at the bottom two, one end on each is twisted sideways the other end is flat. I’m wondering if the twisted end bolts to the side of the frame on these. Also now I see why the curve...so it can go over the connector brace going across.

    Need help identifying frame connectors

    Hi all, I got these frame bracers from a friend of mine that he had in his garage for about 20 years. I can’t find them anywhere to see where they install. He doesn’t remember where they went on the car either, but he swears that they are for a G-body. Does anyone recognize them and where they...

    Car shows

    Thanks for the reply Delz. I do go to car shows to socialize it is a great time! I’ve had my GN for 10 years and been to many as well as I belong to a car club. I’m really not upset about not getting awards, it’s more along the line that I find that the Turbo Regals and GN’s are over looked by...

    Car shows

    Hi all, I just wanted to see if any of you also deal with “disrespect” of the rarity of the GN or turbo regal’s at their local car shows. I’ve been to many and have won only one award while for instance, a dime a dozen 86 Corvette with a for sale sign on it beat me out in my class. There have...

    AC issues

    Thanks Salvage. This morning I added more R134 and the clutch engages for 2 seconds then shuts off for about 8 seconds then kicks on again for 2 sec in a pattern. Any ideas? Could it still be a switch or maybe a ground? Thanks.

    AC issues

    That’s the plan...however I do not know where the leak is or how bad. I want to get the system working and charged then use the UV light once I know it is running.

    AC issues

    Hello everyone. I’m having issues with the AC clutch engaging on a 134 converted system. Here’s what’s I’ve checked: - I jumped the low side with a paper clip and the clutch engages. - I checked the ECM SOL 10 amp fuze as well as replaced the AC compressor control relay. - Low side pressure is...

    Car wants to go but feel bogged down at low end

    Hi pronto, yes all is good With The turbo. I get good psi build up and 20lbs of boost. Boost gauge reads peak and drop in psi. Turbo and wastegate were new and only have about 3000 miles on them.

    Car wants to go but feel bogged down at low end

    Hi all I've been dealing with this issue since I got the car back in 2013. I feel the engine spooling, power building, rpm's going up but the car feels like its not grabbing and rocketing forward as it should. This happens at a stop, rolling start and at low speeds. At highway speeds the car...

    Bad Gas causing ping?

    Hi Thanks, yes I added more alky. I was between 6-7 on the dial and bumped up to 7-8. Still did it. Do you know If that octane boost stuff works? I have a full tank...lol.

    Bad Gas causing ping?

    Hi all I’m just looking to see if bad fuel can cause a pinging at WOT? I have Meth injection (working I primed before the test). 43psi fuel and pushing 20 lbs of boost outside temp was about 52 degrees. I fueled up a couple weeks ago at a side rd gas station. So I’m thinking it might be the...
