Default Robert Saar - 1995 Monte Carlo

i'll make this quick since even i don't like long-winded intros...

i'm a regular on 60V6, W-body, TGO, GMWbody, and a mod on the tunerpro forums.

i have a 95MC LS that suffered some cosmetic damage thanks to a deer in ~ late may of 2008, i'm an unemployed machinist, an avid fan of W-bodies(and almost any large GM coupe actually), 60V6 engines and later OBD1 ECM/PCMs, hate the concept of "moar powah? L67!!1!1!!111" and believe that every engine has it'* purposes and demerits, i told the USMC to kiss my *** in july 08, i got married sep28/2008, my wife is also a W-body owner (a blue/silver 90GP coupe), i'm prone to go off on incredibly vague tangents, have posted MANY, MANY diagrams via alldata, and my keyboard has conspired against me lately.

good enough?

Welcome to the forum Robert. I can respect the 60*V6 love. I had a 95 Grand Am GT with the 3100, after the third headgasket blew I replaced it with an 3400 from an '02 GA GT. Enjoy your stay, chime in where you want. Do you have any pics of your ride?

Sweet! Robert is here! Robert is the absolute man when it comes to OBD1 tuning, and he has resources to so much information that only a complete nut would ask for that its ridiculous.

Hi5 for joining man.

Welcome to the forum. I had a 3100 in my previous car. That motor is quite reliable and never seems to want to give up

sadly, it'* better than most around me.... but it is proof that GM knew what the hell they were doing back then.

and yeah, the STB is a bit ridiculous, but WOW did it change the characteristics of the car...
