A 2&1/6" gauge will fit perfect in an air conditioner vent. I have a boost gauge mounted in the first center vent. You will need to remove the air deflector vanes.

I don't believe Jeff is making those brackets anymore. I bought a set from him several years ago and I believe he was selling out then. You use the standard C4 length brake lines.

To raise the shift point you will need to change the weights in the transmission governor. I have done this on mine. It is a bit of trail and error process. The transmission shop can do it for you.

The late 86 does have alum heads but not a roller cam or lifters. That change came in 87. I wish my late 86 had roller lifters.

My 86 flows great on high but will not blow at any other speed. I replaced the bias resistor but it made no difference. Do you think mine needs a new relay as well?

LT 1 codes

Can a 92 LT1 have the codes read using the paper clip method? I use this method on my 86. I believe the 92 still is OBD1 but I thought the codes were different.

I don't see anything missing. It looks just like my 86. It appears the car was repainted and it wasn't removed prior to painting. Looks likes paint got under the masking.
