I am starting on the rebuild for my 2.8 soon

(must be winter)

...So anyways...

A couple of questions for the group.

1. Is there any kind of point and click online tech manual out there? <---- This may be my ONLY question...

2. The engine / tranny combo is out of an '88 GT (automatic); I want to change the trans for a stick. My question is regarding witch one? (...I have read that most 5spd FWD jobbies, say in j-bodies, can fit...) I want driveability first, performance second as this will be a daily driver!

3. Is it really worth the money to buy a "performance" engine rebuild kit? I want to overhaul it on account of the mileage. (keep in mind, I am canadian! )

4. ...ECM... I really resent the fact that this is part of modern day cars, but can I juice it in-expensively? Or live and let live?


thanx

I know of no online or cd style tech manual available. Most are by prescription only and quite expensive.

If you don't want the extra power......don't spend the money.

Almost all fwd gm trannys except buick 6 I believe will fit from 80 to 91. You just have to find one with the correct ratio for ya.

The ecm is your friend.....it monitors most things, makes corrections and makes it possible to obtain the fuel mileage you like so much. Good luck!

This would be OBD1 I think. GM service manuals don't refer to them as some people here do. In GM language OBD1 is the 1st scanner for computers. Good luck.
