Re: Corsica misfiring after rain (nowadays problem with IAC valve)

Glad to hear that it is running well! Makes me think my girlfriends car could use a new computer. Been fighting with it for a long time now. I worked with one of the guys who worked at the facility where they made our OBD1 computers. It was like a blast from the past for him when I met him. He trie...

Re: 1989 V6 Digital dash 5 Speed VIN number

I wont be at Bfest but my Indy is a 3.1 auto with digital dash as well. Send me a PM if you need any BIN or xdf files. I didnt mention it because it isnt a 5 speed but if you can make it work on a 5 speed that can work too. I also have a copy of the 1990 TGP eeprom on my hard drive among other misc ...

Re: 1988 Beretta misfire when cold and random acceleration

Great looking car! :) Ideally you should get an OBD1 scanner and adjust the tps so it reads above 0% then turn it back till it read zero percent. This way its not too far one way or the other. At leat thats how I've always done it. Never had issues. If you dont have a scanner to read tps position yo...

Re: Touch up paint for my white GTZ

Thats good to know.
I'm just now getting I to paints and I'm starting from scratch.
I got an etching primer for the two small spots where it flaked down to the existing primer.

Re: 1989 V6 Digital dash 5 Speed VIN number

Personally I dont think the OEM chip would be any better than Bens chips. If you had a data logger Ben might be able to tune the chip for your application. You would have to ask him. An APU1 Auto Prom from Moates.net will allow you to program your own chips and do your own data logging. It works wit...

Re: 1989 V6 Digital dash 5 Speed VIN number

WOT-Tech can make a chip if your missing one: https://wot-tech.com/87-93-2-8/3-1-beretta-/-corsica-performance-chip.html They have boxes where you can select year, engine, trans, digital/analog dash, egr, thermostat. I got my chip from them and it worked great when I did one of my 3.1 and 5 speed sw...

Re: My Beretta's! :)

I think the bigest thing would be the engine harness and computer to interface with the stock gauges.
Engine mounts can always be welded and axles can always be machined.

Re: 1988 Beretta misfire when cold and random acceleration

I wasnt sure if the 1988 digital cluster had 2 sensors or not. The only year Beretta with a digital cluster I owned was a 1990 with the 3.1 v6 which has only 1 sensor. But our 1988 with analog gauge had the two sensors. The MAP sensor on the firewall does not verify if it has the eprom update or not...

Re: Corsica misfiring after rain (nowadays problem with IAC valve)

Wow. I wonder how many of these computer boxes will be avaliable in another 20 years. lol
I had 3 fail a few years ago. Usually the car just stopped working all together. Only one box made it run rough but it died a minute later.

Re: 1988 Beretta misfire when cold and random acceleration

Surging under load. I wish I could remember as I had that problem in the past. I suggest checking all vacuum hoses and making sure there are no leaks anywhere. Surging under load sounds like a MAP/MAF discrepancy to me but I'm not certain. It could be the crack in the maf like you mentioned, depends...

Re: 1988 Beretta misfire when cold and random acceleration

There was an update for the MAF 88 but it did not omit the maf. I remember because we had an early 88 and its eeprom was changed years ago by the dealer, but still used a maf. There was also a spark plug recall. And something else I can't remember at the moment. There is the later year 89 no maf eep...

Re: Hmmmmnnnn...

Yah this is one of the reasons why I stopped and moved on after I did the Turbo on the Indy I had. I know it wasnt the most powerful fwd car, but I was starting to realize that I'd spend a lot more on custom upgrades if I wanted it to go faster. So I moved onto my cadillac, I put a TH400 behind my 4...
