Default The Bonnie "Villa"

Yesterday I was blessed to meet BilBoost and 1993SLE at the historic "Villa", man was that a treat, Bill and Pat are great guys and so full of love and information, input, input, Johnnie5, has input. Man, I had a cool time learning about Bonnie lore, and seeing parts of different things and those guys just jumped on my vehicle and fixed the sunroof and corrected the OBD or ODB, ya'll know what I'm talking about. Anyway the SES light isn't on any more. Man I learned about how the Supercharger works, about WFI, about KR, some cool stuff about plugs and wires, coolant, and the coolest thing was seeing Bill and Pat play with the HP tuner, sooo coool.

I am so pumped to belong to BC. I have always done a little work on cars and loved it. Now Bonnies' require attention, and SSEi'* require a lot of attention. So I have reported to Star fleet Command in Enfield, CT and have enlisted.

Blessed in CT
peace

The Villa is also known as "BonneVilla General Hospital"

Yep,Pat and Bill are both great guys. I had a question about front brakes and called Bill on Christmas Eve last year and he took the time away from his family to help me through it on a long distance call

Pat is the "master" of the pillar pod also. I've got one of his creations holding my dual aeroforce gauges

I knew it was too good to be true that no work was performed on a Bonneville. No one EVER goes to the Villa and doesnt work on their car. Bill wouldnt have it any other way. The mans got Supercharger Oil for Blood

Hang in there a minute. The work was initiated and performed by Pat. (I think he'* got a soft spot in his heart for 00+'*).

I merely held the light as the sunroof got adjusted.

Something that was noticed when we were scanning codes for the check engine light. Dan, Pat and Pete'* cars all seem to be running super lean on the factory programming.

Dan'* was idling in the LT range of +13 and when the throttle was touched at all... it blipped to +16.4.

Sorry.. LTFT% is the parameter. It stands for long term fuel trim. My understanding is... When it'* positive..the pcm is adding that % of fuel to compensate for the mixture according to the O2 and likewise negative amounts are rich.

Most tuners seem to go by a guide that +/- 5% is good.
