I just got done installing the Powerjection III efi TBI. No more carb! The install was fairly painless, it took longer to plumb the fuel lines than anything else. I have to say it is much better than my carb. Easy start ups, good throttle response, and if I can keep my foot out of it itshould give better gas mileage. So if your thinking about going efi look into this unit, it still gives you the old school look of a carb with the benefits of efi.
We are off to Boston Mass This weekend for the Southcoast toy and comic show. The Batmobile and the bat cycle will also be there should be a awsome weekend. Ill post some pics of the event.. Have a Great weekend everyone.
Well, it's been a while since we've done any upgrades to the LeMans but recently we did the following: door seals, roof rail seals, quarter glass seals, inner & outter fuzzies on all glass, new carpet (replaced the 43 year old original). Also installed an original, OEM, working rear window defroster (a fairly rare option on an 67 LeMans). Also gave the trunk a fresh coat of splatter paint w/clear (found an original inspection mark inside the trunk, kinds cool considering it's been there for 43 years) I painted around the mark lol. Replaced the black floor mats with a set of original blue ones, looks much nicer with the blue mats.
Next up is to install an original, OEM set of screw on door edge guards. Another very rare factory option that was available on most Pontiacs from 65-68. I have also aquired a remote trunk release that needs to be installed and an original rear mount power antenna as well. Going to have to wait to install that as I need to have the front fender antenna removed and the hole welded up and painted first.
Then, it will be time to install the white/parchment vinyl top. I have a very nice set of trim moldings ready to install as well as a brand new vinyl top. In addition it is finally time to replace the original open 2.56 rear gears with a brand new Eaton posi unit w/3.55 gear set.
All of this should be completed within the next 30 days!
I was also given what was thought to be an OEM power seat unit for my car. After hours upon hours of cleaning it up and getting it to work, I realized it is not the correct unit for my car. I beleive it's for a full size GM from 65-67. Oh well, it would have been a nice OEM option...
If the parts show up, I'll be converting the drum brakes to 4 wheel disc. No more guessing if I can stop in a panic situation!

Does anyone have an instrument panel that is compatible for my 67 GTO laying around? I want to make a template for custom gauges. I would rather build it ahead of time if possible, it would save on the down time.
Thanks for any help!
