Evening all I recently purchased a 1995 buick riviera with s/c. I've already gutted the air box and went with a k&n panel filter. as well as 180 degree T-stat.
I love the car; I was a die hard vw fanatic, Then I saw the riv she looked all sleek and sexy. I knew I had to have her. I call her "Big Sexy" she is white with blue leather interior. She has a little over 131K on her odo. Any riv owners in the Tampa Fl area? where are all the meets at?

Thanks for making me feel all welcome. I was wondering what I need to do to keep her boosting normally? It seems like when she shifts into 2nd that the boost cuts out a lil bit.

Welcome to the site! "Cuts out a lil, huh"...I'd change the plugs and plug wires. I run Autolite 605's in mine. You might seafoam the engine too. Those are cheap things to do also.
