    1992 Grand Prix Progression

    Nice GP. It's nice to see someone take care of a car that is getting up in age. :-)

    Color is called "Blue Green Crystal." I'd have to check the ID tag for the code though.

    Thanks. And yeah, after getting that solenoid replaced and the CAI in there it seems pretty quick. Timing that latest 0-80 vid with a stop watch and I keep getting about 6 flat to 60mph. It feels like it too. Can't wait to get some real mods going.

    Hey everyone. Haven't been here in awhile. Since I've been here I had the boost bypass solenoid die on me. And random misfires. New Solenoid and new plugs and it's running better than it ever did. Here's my latest project I did this week. Pictars Driver Side Passenger Side Process and Before/After sidebyside I did 400, 800, 1000, 1500, and then 2000 grit wet sanding. Then I used Prima Cut with a cutting pad. Then 3M Rubbing compound with a lighter pad. Then a coat of the urethane. I'm probably going to do a 2nd or 3rd coat once it dries 4 hours between each coat. Any suggestions on what grit to sand inbetween coats? Results Undone Light Completed Light

    Haven't done much with the car still. But, I washed and waxed it today. I took the engine cover off recently and it was pretty dirty under there. Pic of the snout cleaned only to show the difference. lol. Any suggestions on getting all the crap out that's sitting between the blower and the valve covers/heads?

    Maybe so. I plan on doing headers and deleting the CAT anyway.

    A couple problems with my Comp G

    Not sure what plugs it has now. I'm thinking of maybe just doing plugs and wires all together. Think it would be ok to drop a heat range even thought I haven't started with major mods yet? I'm sure in the Florida heat it wouldn't hurt. lol. Car ran like crap when I went to the track 6 months ago. Also, I didn't find any leaks. The bypass valve(wastegate) looked to be stuck slightly away from the bump stop on the SC housing. Maybe that's normal? Can anyone with a L32 confirm if it's supposed to be all the way against the stop at idle? Also, when I go WOT, I can see on the gauge and hear that it gets full boost for a split second and then immediately goes to half on the gauge. So I guess it's just not holding it. I hope I can figure this out. Car is really sluggish. Not really bad, but I notice it. I was at a dead stop and punched it. Tires didn't light up nowhere near as much as it did even before the intake. Very noticeable that way lol

    A couple problems with my Comp G

    She's about to hit 63,000 I think.
  9. I bought this car in April 2010. Love the car. No problems. But, a couple months ago the check engine light came on. The code was "P0243 - turbo/sup wastegate solenoid A malfunction" I had it cleared and it didn't show up again until a month later. When I got it scanned again, there was a #4 Cylinder Misfire code on there. Now the codes come back immediately after being removed. I haven't had time to mess with this at all. It's our only car. Putting in the shop would be hard. But, hopefully these are issues I can handle one weekend. Any tips would be appreciated.

  13. 2005 Grand Prix GTP Comp G Bought in April 2010 48K Miles (62,000 currently) Sunroof HUD But, cloth interior. Actually perfect since it is used as a family car. lol Only Mod is a Motorsports Performance CAI Plans: 3.4 pulley Tune Headers CAI Bought a buffer shortly after getting the car...... Don't have an engine pic since installing the CAI Vids after the CAI Hope to get some more current pics soon. I plan on freshening up all the small stuff after new years. And then start to mod. Progress will be slow since this is our only car right now. Not trying to go too crazy with it. I would be happy with a consistent low 14 car. Maybe mid 13's if it wasn't the only car.
