    87 Turbo-T at Used Car Dealer

    Some of my Chicago-area TB colleagues might be interested in this. The price is good, but it appears that it's going to need some work. http://www.route31hotrods.com/detail-1987-buick-regal-used-12225084.html If anybody looks at it in person, can you please post back with your comments...

    Chicago Welcome Committee

    I got home to my downtown condo tonight, and the cops had these three cars pulled over in front of my building. They took the guys' keys and held them there for two hours. I talked to the guys in the Ferrari and a witness, and nobody really knew why they got pulled over. After two hours, the...

    Precision Turbo and Engine (PTE)

    I know that Precision Turbo and Engine has done a lot for the Buick community, and I respect them for it. Their latest turbo designs have been great for this community. However, I must say that I'm extremely disappointed with their rebuild service. They managed to take a TA49 that served me...

    Clean, Stock NON-WORKING MAF

    This is a strange request, but... I'm looking to get a stock GM MAF, but I don't need it to be in working condition. What I do need is the outside to look nice, as it's going to appear on a nice car (long story). I do not want one of those aftermarket MAF's that neck-down in the middle. I...

    Another "Best Street Drag Radial" Thread (for 15X9 rims)

    My ~10 year-old 275/50-R15 Nitto's are finally due to be replaced this spring, as they have lost a lot of their traction capability. I've spent the last hour reading through all of the "best tire" threads in this forum, but there doesn't seem to be a clear answer on what is currently best for...

    MAFTPRO Chip???

    I recently ordered a chip from Full Throttle - my intention was to order a chip for the MAFT Pro. However, the instructions that came with the chip make it sound like it's just an Extender Chip. The receipt that came with my order also shows Full Throttle P/N 050EXTEXTREM. Maybe I clicked on...

    Weird Thing with Wheel Studs?

    The weirdest thing happened to me earlier tonight, maybe somebody here can figure out how... Maybe 8 years ago, I installed a set of Moser 28-spline axles. At the time installed them, I also installed brand new press-in wheel studs. I ensured that the wheel studs were pressed all the way...

    Squeaking Odometer?

    Merry Christmas, Everyone, Just got done removing my digital cluster and lubricating both the upper and lower speedometer cables. Took the car for a test drive, and it still squeaks. Seems strange to me, since the car only has 41k on it. Is there something in the odometer area that needs...

    How to Remove Wire Connector from Digital Gauge Cluster...

    OK, this was supposed to be an enjoyable day working on my car. Turning into a nightmare. I'm trying to get the digital cluster out of the car. Now that I've given the speedo cable some slack and removed the screws, I've got the cluster pulled out as far as it will go. 1. How in the helk...

    Anybody Make the Ramchargers Fans Adapter?

    Does anybody still make the plug-and-play adapter that connects the stock 3-wire fan connector from the engine harness to the Ramchargers fans? These adapters were very popular when the Ramchargers fans first became popular, but now it seems like nobody has them. Yes, I know the Casper's...

    CARB Certification Letter for 1986 TR...

    Way back when I bought my car, there was this sticker in the glove box with a bar code and the number "16057464" on it. It found its way into a box for several years. Recently, I stumbled upon this sticker again. I did an internet search for the number (which looks like a GM part number), and...
