>>1995>whats that entail? presumably these cars have a dedicated community for info?
The community's a lot less helpful than you'd think, especially for the supercharged ones. A lot of people who have done it in the past try to keep as much of the original wiring as they can but I hate archaic 80s engine management I'm going to be scrapping anything I can. The biggest things that it needs are a MAP and MAT sensor for measuring manifold pressure and temperature so the ECU can use speed-density to calculate how much air is going into the engine instead of the horrible weather vane airflow meter that they used back in the day that always goes out of calibration because its basically just a potentiometer with a big flap on it that gets blown out of the way by the air going into the intake. What's cool is both of those things can be had for very cheap using factory parts off Chevy trucks.
The sensor I was installing over the weekend is for a crankshaft angle sensor so the ECU can tell where each cylinder is and know when to fire the injectors and coils. Most people keep the original distributor for this but I wanted more control than that so instead I'm using LS ignition coils also off a Chevy truck which are both more powerful and give a lot more granularity in adjusting the ignition timing.
Other than that it's just gonna be a ton of wiring, which I like doing so it shouldn't be a bad project. I'm also just kinda taking it as an opportunity to take everything out of the engine bay that I can and clean it and make everything look nice. The car sat for a very long time and also caught on fire a little bit a few months ago from a valve cover gasket leak so everything is covered in dirt and fire extinguisher dust.
Sorry for the wall of text I'm also just kinda trying to write out what's in my head to keep things straight
