That would be right and if you continue to run it in this condition it will melt the piston tops or break rings.. Take it to a speed shop that can reprogram the CPU or fit a chip that will adjust the air/fuel mixture

SOURCE: wanna know if i can put a tranny for basic 1995 riviera in my Supercharger

you will most probably need a beefed up tranny to take the power of the engine, I have just installed a 350 supercharged chevy motor in my sons car with a Turbo 350 transmission and a shift kit which I have been told by an auto trans mechanic may not take the power of that engine.
It is costing him $1500 australian to have it reconditioned so I hope it will survive the rides

SOURCE: 91 Toyota Previa AWD - Swap original engine for Previa Supercharged engine

I do a lot of work on Toyota Previa before; including rebuilt engine, swapping engine and transmission and lot of things in between, but never swap a normal aspirated engine to a supercharged engine or diesel. Since i have some experience in Previa, I would like to share my opinion with you regarding your plan to swapping the normal aspirated Previa engine to a Supercharged engine. When you do a swapp like that, you will not only be dealing with just swapping engine, but some wiring, computer, throttle body, air cleaner assembly, extra frame and pulley on the accessory items, transmission as well as a right rear end to get the correct gear ratio to accomodate the new engine and transmission. I can go on even more, but let me tell you this, beside less headache, it would definitely cheaper if you were to find a Supercharged Previa and fix it up. However, if you are totally motivated to do this project, keep in mind, this engine swap will be a long term and time consuming project.l I wish you best of luck and have fun!

Just bought a 95 z 28 its all ready had k&n cold air intake, phantom air to fuel ratio, and vacuum gauges and a port to plug a lap top into so i was told, the air to fuel ratio gauge is showin its...


Cheap air/fuel gauges simply tap off the stock oxygen sensor. That sensor can only tell you lean or rich and the car should idle roughly at 14.7:1 and go rich under acceleration. Cruise down the highway at steady 50 mph and see what the gauge does. Should be calmer.
At idle the needle can bounce around quite a bit. Means nothing. It should however go sometimes rich and sometimes lean. That's how the computer adjusts, if it stays lean too long, the computer tweaks the injectors richer. If it stays rich too long, the computer tweaks it leaner. If the computer cannot adjust the ratio, it will set the check engine light and in that case it should be a flashing check engine (meaning stop the car and tow it to a shop - flash means the catalytic converter can burn out).
If you want to know the actual air-fuel ration you need to buy a wide/band oxygen sensor and related gauge. They are much more expensive and will typically run a few hundred dollars. If the car is stock except for K&N, don't bother with the air/fuel gauge.
As for computer hookup. Go read up about "LT1Edit". Don't buy the software (too expensive for a stock car) but you'll understand what software is out there to monitor your engine (and what hardware you need to buy in order for your laptop to talk to your car).

PO171 System to lean left bank. Lean means either not enough fuel or to much air. Might have an injector problem. Check plugs on that side, see what color the white porcelain part is.

you may just need to put some more elbow grease in to it. Stock shifters have the tendency to really stick after a while. Be sure though to turn counter clockwise.

1999 Grand Prix GTP. Catalytic convertor fine.


Make sure it always gets premium fuel...even with premium and especially in warmer weather the GTP will frequently perform the factory programmed KR (knock ******.) In WOT it is also more susceptible to running a lean condition with stock programming.
Things you can do to troubleshoot the problem and give more consistant performance with the GTP is run colder range copper core plugs and/or any brand of cold air intake, or even a stand alone 9" open element cone filter. Both are better than stock and provide more airflow even though the stock airbox was redesigned in '99. What else you can do is not limited to that but a start. Good luck.
