You could post in the wanted section "in need of wastegate" if not, I think you can use a 86/87 single port wastegate from a buick vendor. The 84/85 Hotair's came with a dual port wastegate. I know of a few members that went single port and liked the performance over the dual.

As for hotwire, that's a wire kit to be used with your fuel pump, kepts full power to the pump by getting it directly from the back of the alternator. That along with a 255lph or higher fuel pump(ex walbro or TTsupra pump)_ is a must on our cars. This should be one of the 1st things upgraded IMO.
