That is too cool though, it seems almost as fast as my ssei, did you open up the exhaust and intake and such already?

That computer in a Bonnie would be tight. Harofreak has a good point with the speedlimit. C'mon man; impress your friends.

what exactly is that computer?

are there any 4t60 reinforced parts available?

i agree on that whole drivetrain thing, i don't think that trans is gonna hold up to it, i mean seriously, these LN3s were designed for only 220 ft/lb torque...not whatever that supercharger is putting into it...still very cool while it lasts

My old car had a 4t60. It was original, never rebuit, and survived my wrath from 140,000 to 215,000 miles before the clutch pack went.

...of course it only had a 3.1 powering it...

Do you by chance have a large Transmission Cooler on that car? May help the trans in the long run

I don't care about longevity etc...

Good job getting it together and working. Many wouldn't give it a run. You made it happen.

Interesting project and now it runs!

'88-90 Reattas got the 4T60. The rare '91s got the L27 and 4T60-e.

Today I went ahead and installed a large transmission cooler. Fluid was changed about 20k miles ago. I went ahead and dropped the pan, changed filter, added Mobil 1 ATF, and with the return line off did a DIY flush. Add a quart, start it to pump it out, stop, add more, start it...until clean. 11 quarts total. I didn't like the idea of leaving the other 6 quarts up in the torque converter and having to Drivetrain is original to my knowledge and has almost 156k miles, and doing great. Still shifting nice, virtually no oil consumption.

Before I did the project, I couldn't find a definite answer to if swapping the parts would work or not, so I went ahead and took up the experiment . Thankfully it all worked out.

That computer is the ECC. The Electronic Control Center. Shared with the Riviera of the same era, it'* a touch sensitive mini-CRT. No standard radio. Radio, climate control, secondary gauges (tach, oil pressure, coolant temp, voltage), trip computer, date reminder, optional car-phone...it'* all handled from here. There'* also Service Mode, more of a dealer thing with a special key combination, that can display any trouble codes and also access ECM data (which can help in tuning). There'* a CRT controller module to handle it. One guy made a point that Buick had this ('86, with the Rivi) 20 years before Cadillac did.









The simple diagnostic page



And when you get in or out, it displays its name.

BTW, the thing on the top right is my XM tuner mount (removed it, looked dumb there) and below is the K40 Sonaradar that came with it when I bought it (doesn't work well, from experience...)
