Jason I can't wait to see the pics of your new black beauty, ghetto golds too...wow. do you have tan or stone grey leather?
My 91 needed a lot of loving when I got her, and ironically enough, it needed new engine mounts. I haven't experienced the mechanical issues that you have mentioned, But Bill, John and Jerry are good BC members to ask- another member that you might want to PM is Randman, definitly the best gearhead for this gen, but actually there are many members that can help you with any issues that you may have. The gain control...ya I miss that, and I'll agree with Jerry- with the control right in the middle it does sound best.
But it is hard to find the assmbly in nice working condition. Unfortunatly, the covering over the button, tends to wrinkle over time, or cracks entirly. I no longer have one, that section in my console holds 3 switches for the LED lighting.
Do the ignition swap for sure- well worth it. You won't notice the difference right away- but after a week of driving you will. Gas milege improved, as well as a more responsive throttle. Easier starting too.
Good to hear that you finally found the bonne that you were waiting for-
