What's wrong with that? The 3.1 Turbo was built by GM & McLaren... or am I missing something else? :-?

Chris
lol

Looks like someone had a bowl of retard for breakfast. :lol:
Explain?

The 89 GP had a 3.1 McLaren had worked on...

In 1989, air conditioning became standard on all models, and a 3.1 L multi-port fuel injected V6 replaced the 2.8 L engine. Another model designation to appear in 1989 was the Turbo Grand Prix. This version started as an SE minus three available options: leather seats, a sunroof, and in 1990, a CD player. These were shipped to McLaren/ASC to get a "B4M" body kit with special molding and hood louvers, and a modified 3.1 L V6 with a Garrett T-25 turbocharger and intercooler. The Turbo also included a full-analog instrument cluster that would soon become the base of the 1990-1993 sport cluster.

McClaren did the initial tuning on the TGP and it kind of sucked. Those cars had all sorts of driveability complaints. There were a few rapid-fire calibration updates done very early in the release to fix "issues."

FWIW, the McClaren turbo is a T28, which is a T25 turbine and T3 compressor. The 2.0 Sunbird got a T25. I have both the T25 and T28 at the house.

That's what I was getting at, but I guess, no matter what thread you post in, and what the topic, there's always one dick in the crowd. :roll:
