  1. The Gen II 60 degrees (2.8/3.1 MPFI) aren't known to have "piston slap" like the Gen IIIs are. If it's knocking loudly, something is probably well fucked and no magical fluid is going to fix that. That being said, a video would be extremely useful.
  2. Are yours damaged? Replacing them isn't part of the shift kit guide. If you do, for some reason, need new ones: Accumulator cover = GM 24205584 $15 on RockAuto. I can't find a PN for the metal lines, they might be NLA and you'd be forced to source them from a scrap/junkyard transmission.
  3. Chris' Z34 is one of the only 1G W cars I've ever driven that feels as if it has an appropriate amount of braking power. As he alluded to before, the Euro 3.4 was sketchy on the best of days, and downright dangerous on the worst of them. I put many miles on that car, and no point would I have described the braking performance as being "sufficient". While they weren't Euro 3.4 bad, the brakes in my own '92 Z34 were less than stellar. Conversely, the brakes in my first car, a '90 GP LE, could be locked up on command. I know they could, because I used to think it was funny to do it. Both my '91 Cutlass and my '90 TGP had decent stopping power, but they were also PM3 cars and that came with it's own flavor of bullshit to contend with, which usually ends in my suggestion to rip it out of the car. Between the GXP brakes on the Regal (best upgrade for the 2G cars, hands down) and those on the C5, I'm spoiled. Every time I get into an early 90s GM product, I'm shocked by how terrible the braking performance is.
  4. I don't recall seeing a Keyless Entry flag the last time I was setting body features with the Tech II. I'd wager to bet it would "just work" once the fobs are programmed. @Amanita there were extremely base Grand Prixs. They axed the option later on, but you could absolutely get column-shifted 2G GPs. Later in the Regals life, even ABS became optional. I imagine the GP probably followed that same suit where previously standard features became optional.
  5. Welcome! Glad to have you.
  6. Hey there, and welcome. If there is no AU0 on the RPO sticker, there is probably no factory keyless entry. On the second gen cars, the RKE box is normally located to the right of the instrument cluster (GP) or behind it (Regal). The car is probably prewired for it, so you may see a loose harness back there. I'd guess you could probably just go find an 01-03 GP (2001 changed the keyless entry fobs) with RKE and install the module if you're prewired.
  7. There are probably a few minor differences somewhere, I want to say something like the later engine will have an extra cam/crank sensor (can't remember at this point), but it shouldn't be an issue. What isn't the same, you can just move over from the old engine.
  8. Those will work. How low do you want it? If you want to not sacrifice ride completely, Vogtland also makes springs that are compatible. The issue with the 04-08 GPs is the lack of a decent strut to pair with them, IMO. If you really want to spend money and have a great deal of customization, BC Coilovers are also available.
  9. Also, I am such a fucking idiot, I'm sorry. I had Cutlass Calais in my head. The Ciera is an A-body; they still have a somewhat active community over at A-body.net.
  10. I think there used to be an N-body forum somewhere. I guess I forgot that much like these cars, no one really cares about them anymore. You're welcome to hang out here and ask these sorts of questions, but things move pretty slowly over here. Also check out the www.60degreev6.com forums.
