Re: Beretta dies when trying to leave from idle, help needed

@ 1988GTU : I agree. Typically at our shop, we back-probe into the harness at the connector to get real-life sensor signal readings. Using an actual lab-scope is even more accurate than watching a scan-tool trying to communicate through the slow OBD datalink connector too. But even a volt or Ohm met...

Re: Beretta dies when trying to leave from idle, help needed

I too would be looking at the TPS, but also the MAP sensor. Make sure that the little vacuum hose to it is good, and that everything is hooked up all the way to the manifold. A vacuum pump (like a Mightyvac) that is hand-held would be a good way to test the MAP sensor, watch your meter to look for v...

Re: 3t40 Rebuild

Nice work. Glad you have it all together again. It is sad for me to think that vehicles like ours are considered so disposable that an undertaking like yours (impressive for sure) is considered so out-of-the-ordinary, with the thought of 'why didn't you just junk it and got something newer?' probabl...

Re: 1992 Beretta unusual setup

No reason whatsoever the VSS would be any different 2.2 vs 3.1. Check the parts on Rock Auto or O'Reilly for compatibility -same VSS, and the reluctor ring should have the same number of grooves. Why not just plug it in and try it? If you do have issues with it, due to PPM (Pulse Per Mile) differenc...

Re: Beretta fest 2016

I would love to see something West coast for a change (how about a highway 101 trip?), but the fact is that Jon and Eric are spot-on, and the 'Fests have been pretty spread-out recently... Staying towards the home of the majority of the populace this time sounds likely and most fair... :( But out of...

Re: 90 GTZ Headgasket?

I'll have to find where I read it if possible. You're probably right though, have not gone any further than looking at the plugs yet due to being busy with other things. Plugs were filthy which further threw me away from head gasket combined with the lack of smoke, but probably smart to go into it ...

Re: Stalling when coming to a stop

Money Pit hit it, I think. Swapping out the TB, you likely have to adjust the minimum idle set screw. Tweak that thing up a little, just until the IAC can close enough to keep the idle where you want it warm AND cold. I know your car is a bit like most of mine -slightly hodge-podged, so the next que...

Re: Beretta Z28

My '89 RS (Third Gen) Camaro came with a lot of add-on parts, including a tubular-steel torque-arm. This particular one was designed to attach to a saddle that bolts to the underside of the tranny tunnel. I think the previous owner (if that is who did the work -he was kind of an idiot) put it in wro...

Re: 90 GTZ Headgasket?

Hmm, a cracked head could still cause that too, depending on where it is cracked. Or a cracked block, but I can't recall ever hearing of a Quad block cracking -there is always a first though, unfortunately. Where did you read that the older W/Ps leaked oil into the engine? I would like to check that...

Re: looking for GTZ wheels 4 of them

Sadly, I cannot make yet ANOTHER bfest. I can check on shipping costs, but I am on the other end of the country, so it is likely to be pricey. I do have a set of Z-26 rims I can use for now until I get my '95 Z back, but I would really like to get a set of GTU/Indy rims first, just so I am not backi...

Re: Interior hardware

Right now, my time is very valuable to me because I have almost none of it for myself... In a year from now, who knows? Some time in between is the bigger question. I can tell you that I won't be insulted -it just may not happen, $25 for instance won't cover it for me -hardware maybe but not the tim...

Re: Beretta Z28

I could use about four of those transmissions! Sorry, I almost drooled on myself. Nice headers, too. I love the six-speed in my Beretta, but that T-56 with the double-overdrive is just sweet. Not just nice progress, but nice consistent progress. Impressive work.

Re: What fuel pumps have been used?

Just what do you consider "excessive" power adder gains? 8) 3400 ram-air LA1 block, 3400 roller cam, roller rockers, heavily ported 3.1 LG5 Maclaren Turbo intake manifold and heads (just as bad as any other 3.1 MPFI, BTW), meaning almost as good flow as a stock 3100 SFI :pardon:, large-tub...

Re: Interior hardware

I could probably put most of that together for you when I strip-out the Teal Indy's interior, but honestly I would want some money for all the time involved. I am not parting-out the car, but I have literally buckets of hardware to replace it all with, and wouldn't have a problem matching everything...

Re: looking for GTZ wheels 4 of them

I have four black GTZ rims from a '92 Quad car -they are daily runners on my GTU, since my original rims were stolen. They are straight, there might be some slight curb-rash on them that could be polished down -I bought them as winter-wheels originally, and never considered sizing them up for show-c...
