Well Buickman104 and I made a discovery yesturday. I have been running with only 3.9 pounds of boost for nearly one year. First lets go back to the begining
- 3 months ago I installed a Boost gauge in the Riviera. It read Full vaccum but only 3 pounds of boost. I beliveved the boost gauge was faulty and needed to be replaced.
- 2 Months ago I visited BIll Boost for headers and rockers install. I explained the odd gauge reading and he said the car pulled like it had no boost issues. ( though he muttered something about his truck outrunning me)
- Last weekend I was looking at this picture http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=84385
My car could not lay tracks like this and we are similary Modded. Mind you the BCA worked like it was supposed to but I had never checked the BCS.
. Then I confirmed the Boost reading from the Gauge by Using my laptop scanning software that converted the MAP readinf (inHG) to PSI. And realized the Boost gauge was right. SO I bypassed the whole thing and well
. The meter shot to 10
pounds of boost. And I left a Sixty foot streak down the street.
What is the point of my post. For those L67 powered cars that do not have a boost gauge from factory. This should be your FIRST Mod. I know Willwren has been preaching this for a while but I thought this would help others to understand the reasoning behind it.
I have replaced the BCS with the one from Buickmans Park avenue (Series 1 parts FTW!)
Ok you can point and laugh now....
