Running much better

Post by jtimgrant » Sat Jul 06, 2013 9:28 am

Just wanted to thank this forum, esp. Virgilmobile, for all the assistance getting the 87 running. It runs like I would think it should. I'm now moving to some other things that I feel ought to be done. Here are a few questions/issues I'm now addressing:

1. I'm getting an exhaust smell upon deceleration. Any ideas? Exhaust leak? The exhaust baffles have been removed. I am looking a set to replace them. I'm also thinking a complete tune up would help since I have no idea when it was last tuned.
2. What are your suggestions on wires/caps etc. Will any 7mm wires work? Or should I search for OEM? I thought about replacing them with Accel.

Thanks again for the help.
