Look at my rear license plate.



I've rebuilt, ported and polished countless TB'*, LIM'*, and Superchargers for several members in an effort to show what power can be made by modifying stock parts rather than simply bolting purchased items on.

I've absolutely lost count of all the parts out there. And I'm proud to say I have yet another L36 LIM on the way that I'm doing as a favor (I've not charged a dime for any of my work so far, and only recently started charging return shipping, but I only do the work when I can fit it in and need data back from the owner).

Bob Dillon'* extra LIM is on the way. He'll be pulling his top end soon to inspect, and it'* a good time to 'upgrade'. I'm doing this out of gratitude for all the work he did early on with regards to the L36 intake issues, and the countless OEM UIM'* he repaired and redistributed for members.

That sounds like a good idea for another topic.

Wow, nice GN, I've wanted one since 1986 when i was in high school! I saw an article in Can and Driver and fell in love and one day, I'll get my very own. For now, my Bonnie is serving as a stand in for the GN I will own. Big, black, blown V6, I'm halfway there.

Much nicer car than the 85.

Speedo goes to 85. It was a GM thing during those years. Even my 79 Bird came with one. Not any more though.
