Default aggressive cam? gauges?

Where would be a place to look for a more aggressive cam?

And

Is there anything I can do about my twitchy gauges? The boost, oil pressure, and Temp.

the car is a 94 Bonneville SSEi

"Twitchy" how? If they're all cutting in and out while you're driving (not talking about the initial startup where they all peg themselves and come back down again; that is normal), then maybe you've got some flaky connections in the dash cluster. The connector pins get a little oxidized after nine years; dismantling and reassembling it all did the trick for my '93. I didn't actually need to replace anything, but the whole process took a little while anyway.

This is my first post, LUV this site guys!

In response to twithcy gauges, my same 3 gauges have been going nuts for about 2 years. I finally took it to the dealer to get it fixed. They had to replace the cluster in the dash, exactly what chad was talking about. If i would have came here sooner, i could have probably saved 369.00 (part and install) by cleaning the connectors!

Frankly, I didn't even _clean_ them; I just took it apart and put it all together again, and that did the trick.

I think next time I might get a little more scientific about it and maybe wipe a thin film of Vaseline on the pins, but I'm talking a _really_ thin film, by rubbing it into my fingers first, then wiping my fingertips on the pins, and even then I don't think I'd go to the trouble unless it was a pin connection with a history of going bad. (e.g. I had some edge connectors in an old Bonneville factory stereo/CB-radio in a '78 Bonne that would go bad about every 18 months or so...)

When the dealer told me the whole dash had to come off, all bets were off with me doing the work. I didnt want to hose anything up on the inside. If it goes bad again, i will definitely try cleaning the contacts first now that the ext warranty is over. (Which, btw, didnt cover a penny of this)

Thanks for the info...
