    Alky System

    Hi all, back again with some new questions. I've searched the net looking for OPERATING instructions of the Alky Injection systems. All I find are INSTALLATION instructions. It's already installed on my recently purchased '87 GN; I need to know how to USE it. ie: The dial with progessive...

    So, is it the chip that determines/limits how much boost is developed? Converter: Under normal driving conditions, not racing, does this mean my engine revs to, lets say, 2800 or 3800 before it moves at all or just for higher performance? These may be dumb questions, but I don't want to learn...

    Thanks for your suggestions. I already ordered a non-alky chip from Eric. Then I won't have to use the alky system at all?? Will that damage anything? I wasn't sure if I could run the car without the Alky system on or if that would damage something. My biggest problem is not knowing what I...

    Hi. Yup that would be the best situation scenerio but I am the only person with a Grand National. No-one in my immediate location has a Turbo Buick much less a GN. Most of the people in my area don't even know what a GN is. When I mention the GN, I get a "Oh, really?" When I showed my boss...

    Hi Eric, I'm istretch. Thanks so much for that info.This is really new to me so I need a lot of help. I love this car and I want it to stay that way. Someone mentioned that you could burn me a chip to run on 93 octane and eliminate the alky thing. Apparently, that is used if I wanted to...

    Thanks so much for the info. I will, indeed, try to get hold of Eric so he can burn a chip for 93 octane and eliminate the Alky thing. This site is the greatest!

    I think I would be happier with just a stock GN. Options, brands, types, upgrades, combinations, codes, problems, what are the right parts and where to find them; just too complicated for me to feel comfortable. At this point, I just want it to run well and look nice. Not interested in...

    Thanks. As soon as I can. And thanks for responding. I think I have too much car here for me. I'm a Buick guy but old school 401/425 nailheads. I had to have a GN but I'm lost. I mean really lost. I'll start w/the chip.
