You can probably hop on a bus to Providence, RI then I could pick you up if you wanted to come see it.

What's those? I thnk that tube is a vaccuum tube that goes to the gauge on my dash from when I had the turbo unless someone here tells me otherwise:



What's that unused tube coming from the A/C side of the motor? HELP!



First pic, at the VERY bottom, looks like the oxygen sensor plug (coming from sensor), rest is too blurry. Second pic, the one in the hand is for a newer-style alternator. Tube I'm not sure.

So that might be for the O2 sensor that would be on that bank of cylingers. In other words, not used in the Fiero application?

It turns out the used ALLANTE intake lower manifold was 'planed' and doesn't seal against the heads properly. This is causing coolant to go into my cylinders...
I just ordered another used one on EBAY. I need this nightmare to end.

So I was able to get a professional paint job!






Gonna install a chip from NJD (Nate) and hopefully the smell of fuel goes away! Then time to relist to sell.

Waiting on an antenna, ebrake switch and new rear quarter panels from the Fiero Store...

Just replaced the upper control arms from RCC with new ones from Aurrat Motorsports. Also recharged the A/C and put in new front brake pads and gave it an alignment.

Other notes: full tank is full before the full line on the gauge...and pretty empty by the empty line.
NJD85GT did the last tune. I recommend turning down the base pulse width another 10% and that should eliminate the richness and get you a little more power. It had an a/f ratio of 11:1 at peak horsepower when it dyno'd at 170 rwhp on a Mustang dyno, so add about 5% for a dynojet dyno. If you get the a/f ratio in the high 12's it should dyno over 190. I picked up 14 rwhp from going from 11:1 to 13:1 on my 3.4...

Those Lincoln Mark VIII Bosch Design 3 injectors flow so much more than stock...
I just had brand new shiny heat shields installed above the exhaust tips.

We took a nasty interior like that and attacked it with Magic Erasers. Just rub gently and the clean off perfectly! There is s thread on cleaning the carpets with resolve and some carpet cleaner...they will come out excellent.
