Posted the same time as you did Phil...and just saw you have fuel leaks. Fix 'em...and take it for a quick drive and report back. The engine might be starving for fuel when you lay into the loud pedal with the leaks.

I checked Glens site...and all I see are coil packs for our I'm not sure what your referring to as FWD...unless your mechanic tried using a series 2 coil pack. I agree with Steve about only using GM I've seen more than one of the guys up here have less than desirable results with aftermarket modules. Gummed up injector(s), a plugged up fuel filter...or a weak pump could all cause the symptoms you're describing. You really need to know if your FP is rising with boost...and some SM numbers would help.

A 3" cat makes sense...but you have to install the DP...and the exhaust...and then take a measurement to find out what length cat you need.

Whatever exhaust you plan to go with...make sure it's stainless. Buy once.

We've got a strain - Massassauga rattler that is this far north. As a teen I was on the lake headin' to the outhouse. Good thing I had bare feet 'cuz that was the only reason I was watching where I was going and was the only thing that stopped me from stepping on it.

Living north of 7...bare feet...outhous e...and no indoor plumbing. Doesn't surprise me.

SM numbers would help...and get under the car and verify you have a D5 convertor. There's a huge difference between 18 and 24 PSI of boost with a 44.

Sounds good. Now what about guys like me who don't understand Translator Pro?

I get up this morning and I can hear this pounding noise coming from inside the furnace. I pull the cover off it and I can't see anything that could making the noise. I follow the piping that runs over to the chimney...and that's where the noise is emanating from. I had a steel cap installed over the chimney vent years ago to keep the birds and other wildlife out. I have a one and a half storey house...and the chimney prolly rises another ten feet higher over the peak in the roof. I go outside and look up...and there's a woodpecker pounding on the steel cap I had installed. The drunken son of a whore! WTF!!!

I hacked at the tuning section again this morning...thre w out some old stuff and tried to update it a some more ideas but, I get to going in circles after a bit.

I am trying to do it ala An idiots guide...but I can never get it dumb enuf

After 25 years of Buicks, it all seems too simple to me and I find it hard to go thru the thought process.

heck, at my age, I cannot go thru any thought process...even simple ones like buy milk when you buy Oreos

I guarantee you'll never get it dumb enuf for me. Seriously tho, I've been checking it out and you've done a great job of updating it.
