I am located in the Bay Area Cali..Any good resources and mechanics out here to work on my 87 GN? Not too much of a wrencher just simple stuff like oil changes and what not..My GN needs a tune up. Just got it not to long ago but don't know much about em...I have a scanmaster and knock gauge. Bigger turbo and bigger injectors not installed on car yet. Turbo is a slightly used GT 6152 Turbo. Car also came with LS1 maf and translator already installed..I also have the extender chip in the car.The car runs OK but a little rich to me..I know it's not running to it's full potential...Anyway I need some help Thanks...Noobie to the TR scene...Thanks..

hey

for installing the scan master just search- theres atleast 5 threads with info all about installation and use of the scanmaster. then once its installed go take it for a ride and record some numbers at idle, at cruise, and at WOT and let us know then we can go from there

nice looking GN by the way

Welcome! Go to GNTTYPE.org & do the Spring Cleaning. That place is our Turbo Buick Bible! Tons of reading material there. Also Steve's site Vortexbuicks is great. He's the guy with 20,000 posts+ so he's easy to find here! :cheers:

Check to see how your Translator is set up, remove the 4 screws on the top cover, inside there are 4 small switches & 2 dial knobs that you need to adjust to your cars needs. There are instructions on what to do on the web site for Fullthrottle & Speed shop out of Detroit, Mi. The adjustments are for diffrent maf sensors 3", 3 1/2" & 85mm. The dials alow you to adjust the wot fuel from lean 14 percent to rich 14 percent & adjust idle rich to lean 6 percent. The extender chip adjustments are also on this site. Get it set right & hang on!! I hope this helps you out.
