Default Mini-AFC ?

Alright, I am looking at upgrading to a 1994-1995 Supercharger with the larger throttle body as I seem to have a problem with the shaft or something. It is still leaking oil after the second time the machine shop put in new bearings. Anyhow, I am wondering if this will work and how you calibrate the Mini AFC? Thanks.

The leaking oil has nothing to do with bearings, it'* the snout seal. Did they put a new one in?

To calibrate the AFC you would do best with a scan tool and monitor A/F. I didn't have one so I fiddle until it feels the strongest, while refering to my A/F gauge. Mine is around 115 in normal mode at the moment.

Alright, well I do not have a scan tool, and yes I meant the snout seal. They did the bearings at the same time. And they won't warranty it anymore because they recommended I not put the smaller pulley on and that GM had a service bulletin out, not to have them put on. So, they won't do it again unless I pay them again. Which was $400 the first time!!!

Yeah, really. For $400 warranty work, take a little time to swap the stocker back on before you take it back.

Sold the stocker a while ago and they put the 2.2 on for me, so that probably wouldn't work. But yes. it was very spendy.
