Re: BANNED TOPICS... once again, EVERYONE READ

Q1: My buddy has a 305TPI and recently replaced plugs and wires. After sitting for hours it starts but sputters and sometimes just stalls but only when cold or sitting for a long time, enough to bring it back down below 50*. What could be the problem. I'm thinking fuel filter.

I re-read the post so I'm changing the response. This doesn't belong here, it's not a simple Q with a definitive A. Ask this in the General Tech section. The previous post should be moved and mine should be deleted.

Re: BANNED TOPICS... once again, EVERYONE READ

O.k. so I have a 88' IROC-Z with a stock 305. The rear has a set of 3.73 gears. I wanted to squeeze a bit more power outta my TPI and am looking at getting some Edelbrock Shorty headers, a flowmaster exhaust system, SLP intake runners and a 52mm Throttle body.

You mention about a also going with a cam and intake, who makes a intake manifold that can be used with my stock heads? Th eedelbrock one suggests the vortec ones but are they able to bolt dirrectly on? Also what a good mild cam.

I'm looking at mayeb bumping up the horsepower to around 300 if possible. Any other suggestions? Thanks

Do you know how many bits is a nibble?

The reason GM didn't assign an additional byte was simply because the code would have to check if the first byte was on before referencing the second byte. That would be. Messy..
If your a coder you'll understand this.

A 10 or 16bit ECM would be the solution for this issue with MAF.

I HAVE 91 Z28 CONVERTIBLE W/L98,

Q: WHAT CAUSES THE OIL TO BACK UP THE DIPSTICK LINE AND PUSH THE DIPSTICK OUT AND CAUSE IT BLOW ALOT OF OIL ON TO HEADERS ETC. ALSO WHEN I GET ON IT FROM A DEAD STAND, SHE RUNS THRU 1ST AND 2ND FINE BUT 3RD OR 4TH MAY TRIGGER SOME TYPE OF FUEL SHUT OFF OR IGNITION, EITHER WAY SHE LOSES ALL POWER.

BRIEFLY: I RECENTLY DID THE INTAKE GASKET. BEFORE THIS I HAD NO PROBLEMS WHAT SO EVER WITH ACCEL AND TOP-END. BUT AFTER I HAVE HAD THE OIL PROBLEM AND THE LOST OF HIGHEND POWER.

ANY SUGGESTIONS

PVC Valve, maby the oil seperator is clogged if equipt, picton rings are going bad. Basically the crankcase has a lot of pressure which is the reason why the the oil is pushed out the dipstick tube.

OK AND WHAT ABOUT THE THE FUEL OR JUST PLAIN CUT-OFF POINT I GET TO IN 3RD AND 4TH WHEN UNDER FULL THROTTLE, IT JUST LETS GO AND AS THE ENGINE RPMS DROP IF I TOUCH THE GAS AGAIN THE POWER IS RIGHT BACK THERE, THE ENGINE NEVER ACTUALLY CUTS OFF JUST SOME TYPE OF LOST OF POWER, OR IS IT TIMING?

AN THOUGHTS?

Is it also taboo to post questions regarding TPI conversions into non thridgen vehicles, as long as its in the TPI section?

This thread also has information on the fuel lines needed.

The HSR will not fit corvette hoods--check out grumpyvette's latest posts as he is working to get a custom plenum made to fit corvettes and firebirds without the clearance work.
My bro-n-law has a 87 IROC with the HSR. The OEM hood (with Hood Louvers) actually rubbed a hole into the flexable boot infront of the TB. So we had to cut out the "bump" under the hood. Not a perfect fit, but with a little modification of the hood, you'll be A OK.

Try looking at a late 80's Corvette 350. If I'm not mistaken, some 'Vettes and F-bodies came with an aluminum block.

Re: BANNED TOPICS... once again, EVERYONE READ

I like how I go to reference this thread for a specific subject, and it just throws me to search.

In the future, at least directly link to posts pertaining to the 'banned' questions. It'd help a lot instead of making me wade though 10+ years of data.

Re: BANNED TOPICS... once again, EVERYONE READ

A number of years ago there was a couple of threads where a bunch of our guys were fussing with a bunch of Camaro owners from Australia, and they were bragging etc. BUT the guys down under claimed fantastic MPG…after much talk and figuring things out it was discovered that there was a Easter egg they called a “Lean Burn Cruise” setting and theirs was turned on and ours was not.

So once we got them turned on the USA Cars also got great MPG something like 30/35MPG.

I have run search after search and cannot find these old threads.

Is there a special section for OLD threads??

Can you help me???

Thanks.

Rich
