Re: Clunking around passenger side when making right turn

I would start at Rock Auto. Way cheaper than local sources, overall reliable, and typically same or better quality parts -you usually have more brands to choose from too. Also check your sway-bar end-links. If one of them are broken, they can make a clunking sound going around turns. Plan on doing a...

Re: Low oil level light on, oil level is fine.

Sounds like a bad or dirty sensor to me... Maybe have a new one put in while the oil is out anyway... Or, just see have it does after the oil change, and if you still have problems with it plan on having the sensor for the next oil change. Rock Auto =~$12 plus shipping. Some of the cars run the sens...

Re: Size of radio in 96 Z26

I haven't pulled the factory radio from my 2nd Z-26 yet, but I did check fitment of a double-DIN Pioneer in my first '95 Z today (the single DIN Pioneer in that car is super easy to remove, so I just took a moment to check it out). Basically, the trim around the radio and HVAC (heater) controls will...

Re: 1988 Beretta misfire when cold and random acceleration

Mileage is stored inside the cluster. Supposedly a removable chip, but I have never tried to swap them. The clusters are pretty durable, sometimes you need to remove the grey conductor strips (carefully!) and clean them and the surfaces on the glass displays and boards with isopropyl alcohol. Also, ...

Re: Project 91 GTZ Build Thread

Okay, now that the Photo-Bucket pics are here, I can see what you have... IMG_0043.jpg IMG_0044.jpg So you have an old 3.1 MPFI block then? The 3400s (and 'M' code and 'J' code 3100s too) were lacking the mount bosses to bolt this style mount to the block. Unless there is some hidden adapter behind ...

Re: Hmmmmnnnn...

With a Northstar like that in a Beretta I'd make the alternator fit then look for an electric version of the AC, water pump, and power steering if I really wanted it to work. But thats a tight fit. I know the Northstar is large. I used to have an Eldorado. They are great engines but they have their...

Re: Hmmmmnnnn...

:no: I tend to doubt it could be done without substantial frame modifications. Fieros have a lot more engine-bay width. Even then, the small-block installs typically use an electric water-pump, because there isn't enough room for a pulley... Tight. I could make some measurements, but even my Northst...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Nice! Steel rivets are a PITA to pull through without a pneumatic/hydraulic riveter, but worth the extra effort! :good:

^^ :lol: ^^

Looking good! I like those turbo headers... Definitely a good, clean fit in there. What size are the primary tubes?

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Those mounts are pretty slick. Very cleanly built too. I would be concerned about using aluminum pop-rivets to keep them from moving under shearing load, but I guess you have it right on, they won't go anywhere, especially with the weight of the car pinned down on them and held up by the spring... N...

Re: Size of radio in 96 Z26

I'll be pulling the OE radio from my '95 Z in the not-too-distant future to hopefully replace with a double-DIN Pioneer, I am just not sure that thing will fit... It seems like the GM radios then were a 1.5-DIN... :roll:
If you still need the dimensions by then, I'll measure mine out for you.

Re: Size/ location of speakers in 96 Z26?

For all Z-26-era cars, the fronts are 4x6s, located in the kick-panels in front of the doors under the dash, and the rears are 6x9s located under the package-tray (shelf behind the rear seat). Older Berettas (pre-'91) had two tiny speakers (3x3s, I think) in the dash instead of the kick-panel fronts...

If he listed option (4), then we wouldn't need to pick two! :good: But wait, that simplifies it, AND makes logical sense, that is in the opposite direction from the discussion of RWD... :sorry: Interesting to me that GM tested both a RWD and an AWD Beretta -I wonder how much they modified the frame?...

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

Washed the Sapphire Blue '90 T-Type today, along with a few of the other cars. I had done a clear-coat repaint on the top of the fenders a week or two ago, this is the first wash since then. I still need to find some color-match paint for this, I would like enough to repaint the hood, trunk, and spo...

Re: 1989 V6 Digital dash 5 Speed VIN number

My GTU's digital dash is run by the stock ECM. The 3800 is run by its' own PCM. If you are having trouble getting the engine to run right, consider going with a stock 3400 PCM piggy-backed in place (you can run the bigger injectors from the 3400 then too), then you just need a digi-dash ECM/PROM to ...
