I ran into a little snag trying to put an '80 "Y" pipe manifold on a
'84 five cylinder gas engine that used to have a single down pipe. I
wanted to put a sensor in this manifold but now I see it will need to be
removed again, drilled, and tapped before this will happen. Fool me bet

thinking this will be a great project for when the roads here begin to
get covered with salt. That's what the GMC with the see-through bed is

diesel out of this car. If I can tie down the full-throttle line on my
'84 ECU and get no trouble except for maybe slightly blackened plugs,
I'll be very happy. I'd still be regular happy if I had to tweak a few
adjustment here and there to get things to even out. There is no
catalytic converter to melt down. What do you think?
