    Tech Lounge
    These pics are from my bad unit. The reading started high then kept dropping until it stopped at .623. After reading through and seeing threads with bad harnesses I went through and did the tests suggested to make sure wires are good. I checked the other sensor and it was withing the specs...

    PCM Tuning / Dyno Results
    For a base map to get car on dyno should work. If car is going to have a different cam setup it will have to be tuned. Different cams will have totally different base line to high rpm numbers.

    Exhaust Tech
    I've had to readjust my kooks due to catching gravel on inlaws driveway. And again due to age of exhaust. It torques with time and pulls itself. I've done it in driveway just got to get car up high enough to get extra jack stands under car. Using hydraulic jack and solid to hold in place along...

    G8 GXP Talk (V8)
    I've used 3m super 77 multipurpose adhesive. Used it on old one before dealer broke the third brake light and had to replace. Recently had to do a couple of spots right at the oh shut handles in the rear. Noticed other day that the corners on rear window where starting to come down. Whatever...

    V6 Engine Tech (LY7)
    Did the compressor on my 300zx this winter. It was about 450$ for a kit that came with dryer and expansion valve. Most compressor's run about 400 these days.

    Just for reference trans oil and the diff oil.
  11. Transmission Fluid differences

    Drivetrain Tech
    I want to say that are transmission takes synthetic oil. I would not recommend using anything other then that. For one if you just drop your pan there will still be half the fluid inside the trans. And if you saw a VI(6) series trans fluid listed as not synthetic I'd stay away from that brand...
  12. Easiest upgrade ever (new mouldings)

    Appearance / Detailing
    It's a bit overdue to of replaced these. Found a set of black ones reasonably priced. Looks like the trim I just recovered on my 300zx. I might look into putting some vinyl on the upper trim. It's not bad looking with the chrome on the upper still. Wish the quality on these was better. Would...

  16. oil recommendations

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    It's something like this. 5w-30 = 5w cold then goes to full 30 It has some principle name I just don't remember. If the oil is a single number like 30,40,50sae then it starts at cold thicker then a conventional 5w-, 10w-, 15w- etc. Think of it this way first number is cold and second is hot.
  17. oil recommendations

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    Have you thought about doing oil sample testing. Done some with milage ranging in the 6k to 7k with oil being at its end. Using extended life Mobil 1 5w-30 with ac delco filter. (Stay away from m1 oil filters they can starve an engine of oil at the end of their span. Had higher metal numbers...
  18. Sourcing Pontiac G8 parts such as bumper covers

    G8 GT Talk (V8)
    I would just buy a new bumper. I hate how insurance and auto shops try to get people to fix cracks in plastic bumpers. It's plastic spend the money and do it with a new or used one that's solid. 600 give or take is actually a good price for a bumper. If your going to keep the car it's worth...
  19. looking for a summer tire replacement

    Wheels / Tires
    That's why I pay for the firestone lifetime alignment. If they cant get it right the first time I just keep taking it back. Problem with most shops is guys just don't care and think people are dumb. so they half ass the work. I am looking for both. Looking for a summer radial at the moment though.
  20. looking for a summer tire replacement

    Wheels / Tires
    My all seasons are done and I need to get something that can hold up well. I've been bummed out with the performance of the tires I've been getting in the last few years. either the compounds are to soft or to hard. My RE960AS couldn't handle one burnout as it seemed to do something to the...
