Default Got another one!

Hello all. Im a new And proud owner owner of an 87 Bonneville SE. 78k miles on her only. Nothing funner than striking fear into the hearts of imports with a grocery getter. So far I've opened up the intake, put a resistor in the IAT sensor so I didn't have to drill any holes. I painted the valve covers red and 86'd the muffler on my break at work.

It looks really bad because it was near a tornado and got pinged around by misc. wood and metal chips. Then bare metal sits for some odd years, and... well, you get the rest. Runs like a champ. Im not gonna touch the body. Its the PERFECT sleeper!

Forgot the pics!

Like I said it looks like crap, but runs great. And thats what counts. Plus, that little silver neon that I caught a light with on the way back from returning my movies never saw it comin.....

Two tips. You need the IAT functioning properly. You'll get better mileage and performance. And no street racing stories. Forum policy.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Im a general autmotives mechanic. I have the right resistor in the IAT sensor. Because of that and the opened intake, the throttle response picked up a lot and I get about the same mileage.

I perused (sp?) a little, I know street racing stories are a no-no. I merely meant to accent the fact that this car is gonna make a great sleeper (even though it was just a neon). Anyways, it wont happen again .

What is the proper resistor? Are you refering to the temp sensor, or did you put a resistor in its place?

Honestly Im not sure about the Ohm rating, but the resistor is in the place of the sensor. Well, the sensor is a resistor. At so many degrees temp (celcius or fahr. not too sure) it tells the computer a different number of ohms resistance. I think it may be a bi-metallic strip if its not a resistor. Anyways, Its all for emissions and frankly I could care less. I passed so thats all that counts. When I bought it ( 5 bucks) they said it would tell the computer a constant 40* Fahr. reading, but I just needed something so I could 86 the sensor without messing with the computer. Plus it allowed me to open up the intake. I've had it like it is for a few months and it has purred like a kitten every time I put the key in.
