got the beast running and it drives good finally

By 95BlackZ26

Filed under: 1999 Pontiac Grand Am (Project Stealth)

well after chasing a phantom problem for many months i finally got the beast running good.

due to non flatness in the intake spacers it was creating a vac leak and eventually cracked the upper intake which made the car not want to idle and run like crap, but for the cheap investment of a propane torch i found the problem and its all fixed.

it runs good and sounds awesome but due to the lame inspection in this state i have to change the muffler for a quiet one since no station will touch the car.

Hi
Glad you got to the bottom of the mechanical problem. Maybe you need to go to the extra effort of making a quick change exhaust setup. Little bit of work one time and then you can run the muffler you want all year and just change out for the inspection. Just a thought,
Jerry
