I hate mechanics.... - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

so your car was faster than it was before on just 3 cylinders? Crap I bet you are lower than 14.

It wasn't firing period. Would have to fire at the wrong time to get a mis-fire code, but it wasn't firing at all sans the no code, yet I'd have thought some sort of code would have come up. Probably would have in a Series II which has a little more to the diagnostics.

FYI, Series 1 PCM'* aren't capable of logging misfires.

And I think DrJay is going to be in the 12'* when he gets it tuned right. Regardless of the pulley swap.

I gotta Heli-Coil my home-made puller, then I'll mail it up to ya Or you can road-trip down for it.

We don't KNOW how fast he is yet, and I hope to find out side-by-side (and a little behind) at the track soon. We have our guesses compared to his 'feel' for the car before and after the build, and what the engine was spec'd and built for.

I think the next problem will just be dealing with traction.
