    Took a while but figured out who is a little B*tch and who actually supports the pros.

    There are some "REAL" pro GN professionals on these boards. They know the engines and electronics inside and out. There are also some products that come out that are great and have some issues before they are perfected. That is the way life works folks. Please do your research and don't judge a...

    Bailey's 2 Step works as intended and well worth the consistency

    I am very happy with the Bailey's 2 step. The consistency of the RPM is well worth it. The brake peddle install was perfectly instructed and I will save the 200r4 because there is no need for a trans-brake. Thank you Turbo Bob and to the community as a whole for steering me toward a solution of...

    U joints at the Nationals

    I plan to run 275/60 R15s so I'm kind of expecting a u-joint issue if I do decide to compete at all with the B3 folks. Just purchased. LIMITED LIFETIME REPLACEMENT Part # 234 from Advance which states it is a perfect fit for my 87. If someone breaks one before I do, hit me up as I will have it...

    Valve spring removel tool

    I ordered the 1 from Cotton's but also wondered if anyone had ever used this 1? I plan to do the job with the heads on and was wondering if this tool would work? I know I will probably have to use the 1 from Cotton's on number 6 as it is in a very tight location but this one here looks like it...

    No boost readings in Power Logger

    I'm sure this has been answered by Bob or someone that is an expert in PL but I don't see any thread for this. I don't yet have any analog inputs occupied on the analog interface for power logger. Should the power logger installed in the ECM be reading boost levels; as this is an all stock car...

    New 3 Bar Map showing boost on factory boost guage at idle

    So one would think that going from 2 Bar MAP to 3 Bar Map would cause the factory gauge to show less than actual boost. Not the case with this one.. I T'd the vac/boost line to an external gauge and left the factory gauge as is. Now the factory gauge shows boost just above idle and max boost...

    Installing the Power Logger FAQ as everyone wants to protect their ECU

    I just completed the PL install. Not sure if this is stated anywhere else but the simple answer is the metal things on all corners of the 2 boards are NOT rivets.... The boards are stuck to the metal brackets that form the structure because they have been on there for 30+ years. Use a very fine...

    Magic Marvel Mystery stuff.....

    So. I have a question about additives.. Oil and Fuel... I added some Lucas 3X boost and filled up with 93 octane to hypothetically bring the octane up to 96.8. I also added 4 oz. of MMO to fuel to lube up the upper cylinder walls. At the same time, I added 28 oz. to the oil to clean up the...

    87GN GURU in Nashville, TN area needed

    I am looking for a shop near the Nashville, Tn area to go thru my car with me and tell me what the build is. Also, EricM, I will be back home June 1 and will get the numbers off the 5.7 chip to see if you know any background on the build. I would imagine it will get very expensive to have a tech...
