There seems to be a big boost in HP and Torque between the years. Does anyone know the details on the upgrade? Maybe a step by step or walk through of what needs changed? Lots of Mods out there but nothing specific to what Buick changed. Thanks!

1986
235 HP @ 4000 RPM
330 ft-lbs of torque at 2400 RPM

1987
245 HP @ 4400 RPM
355 ft-lbs of torque at 2000 RPM

GNX
276 HP @ 4400 RPM
360 ft-lbs of torque at 3000 RPM

86/87 are the same.. GNX had a few tweaks on them.. Put a chip and a K&N and you will fly by the GNX :D

Don't worry about the Bum, I know he has an 86 Grill that he keeps in house just so that he can admire it from time to time. :D:yup:

Brad,

We really need to hook up this year so I can get that grill from you. :yup:
