Smile New Bonneville Driver from Germany

Hey!
My name is Alex, 24 years old and a huge fan of american cars.
Since 2005 I own a 1987 Pontiac Trans Am ; 5.7L TPI with some modifications (Headers, Ported Heads, custom tune, holley stealth ram).
About 1 month ago, I wanted to do something against the excessive oil loss, and pulled out the engine to install new gaskets. After I have seen that almost all piston rings were broken, and even one piston wasn't in one piece anymore (the lower part of the piston was missing?!) I needed another car for daily driving. So a friend offered me his 92` SSEi in exchange for most of my T/A`* engine parts (he owns a 1987 t/a, too, but a 5.0L).

So the deal is set and there are only 6 days left until I get my Bonnie.



Bonnies Engine had been rebuilt 2 years ago for about 4500$, almost everything new.
Just one problem, it says Code 41: Cam Sensor, diagnosed by Diacom-Software. (very practical that bonnie has the same diagnostical interface like my t/a).

Now I'll do some searching, I think the code41 is a common problem, a new cam sensor +interruptor has already been ordered.


And now the pictures:





I'll upload some pictures after some days of intensive cleaning an polishing+waxing



Alex

Hi and Welcome to the Bonneville Forum!

Please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.
