They were going to be a graphite metallic but it just didn't look good.  THe surface of the cover was too rough.  and showed through the powder so I went back textured

And the beauty of that car being in a car show is that you drive and race that badboy and it is still in such good shape it can be in a car show! :love:

It wasn't that clean.  And most everyone was going nuts over the dozen or so vettes there, or the ragged out 240.  The buick is kind of boring

Well, it might be a lot of people didn't (and don't) know much about these Turbo Buicks, too. So when they see a V6 G-body, they kind of over look them. :yes:

You'd think a Monte Carlo owner would know the difference! :lol:

Did better than mine in the 97; it puked compressor oil over the winter and leaked all over the compressor.

So we went to Baileyton Friday night.  No new ET's but it picked up 2MPH in the 1/8th on 3 PSI less boost.


 


First run of the night was a pedalfest.

Can you explain your engine managament, maybe in another post if you don't want to get that sidetracked here?

No problem.  It's a Buick thing. 

 

It is a standard Buick LC2 ECM with a chip and a device called a powerlogger.  Powerlogger grafts on to ecm through an unused access port already on the board and allows you to log all ECM parameters plus 5 analog inputs.  Mine are boost, wideband, EGT, Fuel pressure, and Methanol pressure.  It also exposes the high speed data stream to a box on the dash so it can be read without a laptop.  What you'r seeing here on the throttle position. 0.42 is idle and > 4V is WOT.

The Powerlogger also makes those analog ports addressible to the ECM so with the right chip you can lock to and hold a A/F ratio at WOT.  Since the factory MAF is maxed out at well below 14 PSI it give syou some feedback at WOT rather than making it some type of crude speed density.

 

Boost and Alky control come from a unit called the ISAC it's an integrated boost and alky controller that's tunable from the  laptop.
