Re: Help Me Camero Guys
I hear ya, Jon! Gimme a Holley anytime, for I'm no computer car whiz either. But if everything was working OK on your car despite the pieced wiring, it still sounds like a something you can fix, for the wiring was working. When my '87 went nuts I knew NOTHING about TPI, but damn if I was gonna pay GM mechanics the big bucks to fix it if I could help it--I'm a poor guy, too. I spent a few hours studying TPI and getting to know what it was all about, and it's not that complicated if the computer hasn't puked. Remember getting familiar with power valves and pump cams and squirters and the difference between a 4150 and a 4160 Holley for example? I took TPI as a challenge and admittedly I lucked out, but it was a helluva good feeling when I solved the problem from being more informed, and I understand it better now. With that said, the car will probably smack me down with a vengeance the next time I drive it (chuckle). Good luck!
