Default Hey

Hello from the beautiful state of North Carolina!

I just recently received and 86 Bonnie that'* in great shape. I've had some problems with the fuel system I'm currently sussing out, but once that'* over and through I have every intention of making it a head turner.

Did I mention this thing'* 4.3 and fuel injected?
I didn't realize fuel injection in this model was such a rarity, but it'* been throwing everybody (even people at the local Pontiac place) for a loop.

Welcome to the Club...

Yeah I have seen a driven a few of those.... 9 out of 10 they either had the 3.8 or the 5.0... I was surprised to see the 4.3 and with FI.... all I can say is wow... Even that 4.3 should respond to being a bit modified... The only thing I don't know is weather that engine is a Roller motor.... I believe if you got the 4.3 with FI its a roller lifter motor, But don't quote me on that yet... I need to do a little more research... Being that its a Chevy motor there is always room to play...

Classic! If it is a roller motor, then you have a leg-up on producing a nasty little beast. Think turbo...that is, if you feel like getting nuts. Otherwise, all the convetnional N/A stuff works, too. I think there are rockers cams, cranks, and other such thing available for those motors.

Welcome!
