Update time.

All the parts finally arrived.

I am hoping to get everything fit up and ready to ship by the end of this week. I will update each person with individual tracking info when they go out. Please stay patient, as shipping is usually very delayed this time of year.

Croquest is telling you right. The factory boost gauge is also notoriously inaccurate. Get a true mechanical boost gauge and read up on the how to, for swapping it in place of the stock one. Very simple. You should be around 9-10psi on a stock 88 that is healthy.

As for pistons.... forged pistons are great and can be worth the investment, if you plan to modify things and try to go for a lot of boost, then they are good insurance and can survive a poor tune for a bit longer than stock or hyper-u. There are plenty of guys that have run big boost and mpi on stock internals. It is all about a proper tune. Run it lean, overboost, and detonate it a bunch and you will eventually melt or blow the rings lands off of any pistons that are in it. I am running hyper-u pistons from Randy at enginemachineservice in my 88 with a 16g at 15-16 psi with no problems, but my car has a good tune on Scotts ms2 ecu. My engine had over 100k miles when I tore it down and everything measured within stock specs. So, I could have just kept the stockers in there, but I just decided that the stock sized hyper-u would be fine. You might find the same with your engine.  

The bsek is a good investment. My car fires up cold at nearly 100 psi oil pressure so running anything over idle rpm when cold will push oil right past the seals, so I have to let it warm up. It drops to 45ish when warm at idle. It hits around 55-60 at rpm when warm.

Read up on any questions you have. The search function on this site can be tough to navigate, so just use google or any other search engine that you are comfortable with to research your questions and add starquestclub at the end in your search bar.

Good luck and enjoy.

Hi All,
Looks like I missed the opportunity for this ( possibly last) production run.
Does anyone have a spare for sale?
It would same me a lot of time vs having to fab one up myself.
Thanks in advance.

I have responded to both of your PMs.

Top right corner of the page, thing that looks like a small envelope . Your responses with payment instructions are there.

No one said the word investment. But prices tend to go up as supply goes down. It is an economical fact....

You don’t want louvers anyway, you’ve made that clear, so why do you care if the price goes up?

You don’t need rare parts to make a nice driver. But the price of those rare parts usually reflect their limited supply, not just in. The SQ world. Some people get it and are ok with that, some people get jealous that they don’t have them and can’t afford them, so they complain about the costs and then constantly try to call out other people for trying to sell THEIR rare parts for what THEY think THEIR parts are worth, even though they have no intention of buying them.

We can spot the louver owners...They don't like the negative comments toward a ridiculous price... :)

I couldnít care less about this sellers price. Iím not a buyer or a seller, so it doesnít influence me in any way. I just get tired of everyone else beating up on people about their prices and continuing to insist that the market for these cars and their parts be comparable to scrap value. If you arenít a buyer, why post the negative crap all the time. Just move on.

If you guys donít want your cars and parts to ever have any real value, then by means, carry on. You all are doing a great job of making sure that none of us can ever make any real significant improvements concerning the values.
