Default Hello all.

Hello from the Dallas Texas area. I'm here in search of knowledge about Turbo Buicks and to contribute however I can. I owned a 87 GN back in 96. It had a custom cam, chip, injectors, turbo, downpipe, intercooler, exhaust, fuel pump, a bad tune and no diagnostic hardware like we have today. I was 19, in college,low on money and just didn't have access to the knowledge needed to solve the cars tune problems. Ended up selling it. Well, my brother has recently bought a 86 Turbo Buick with a moderate setup. It also has a few problems to start out. BUT, it has a MAF Translator and Scanmaster. Hopefully with a bit of research and maybe some experienced guidence from here we'll be able to sort it out and get it on the road. I'll try and post a picture of it up this weekend.
