That's good news :thumbup:

Maybe at some point when you get things ironed out it would be a good idea to go back and weld a bung on. Those clamped on 02 bungs have had a reputation for leaking...

Yep, a lot of that doesn't make much sense to me either. I remember reading from somewhere that a lot of these Western states rely on the same supplier from California. Nevada is similar, Arizona...

Nothing but 91 here in Arizona state wide. Same pee water California uses, and it's all blended 10%. So that's all we run here.

I've noticed with the true tracs that when the car is in the air and I spin one tire, the other tire doesn't necessarily follow it exactly like a clutch style posi unit does.

That's a great setup. If I were going to do it, I'd definitely do the flex fuel sensor deal, that's the only way to fly on this stuff because the percentages vary too much at the pumps.

Yeah, and a 1/2 turn will only yield .025" preload with those studs, and that's just not a lot of preload, especially when you're running an aluminum head.

Most lifters require .030 to .050" of...

Yep, and not just on Pontiacs. I've seen similar results upgrading to a nice cylinder head over an OEM piece on other engines as well.

Yep, stoich for E85 is 9.7:1 so it's an extremely rich mixture, plus it takes a fair amount of compression to take advantage of it, which new cars really don't have enough of anyway making them even...

What hydraulic lifter are you running that only requires an 1/8 turn?? That's not much preload at all, and I'd expect any hydraulic to be noisy with that preload.

Since your valvetrain is...

Most likely it was running too lean to begin with and ethanol exaggerated that problem.

One thing you have to do with ethanol, even just 10% blend, is richen the idle circuit. More than just...

You won't have to do much at all with the Sniper. We run 2 of them, mainly because of the mountains and elevation changes, and they handle the changes quite well.

I can tell you how a guy I know tried to shoot a cast iron frying pan with a 12 gauge.

That didn't work out so well. I think beer was involved with that one too :D

About Us

The PY Online Forums is the largest online gathering of Pontiac enthusiasts anywhere in the world. Founded in 1991, it was also the first online forum for people to gather and talk about their Pontiacs. Since then, it has become the mecca of Pontiac technical data and knowledge that no other place can surpass.
