Hey, my name is Chris. Im the proud owner of a 1995 Riviera. Id had it for about two months now and I really love it. The car has extensive engine work done to it. The engine has been completely rebuilt and only has 20,000 miles on it with the current setup. It has a comp cams custom grind cam, 50# fuel injectors, custom fuel rails, SLP headers, borla exhaust, Walhboro 255 fuel pump, Upgraded MAF sensor off a 01 Silverado, Custom tune, and a few other things. Car runs a 13.1 at 115 in the quarter with a 2.2 60' time =/. Has a built transmission and quite a few other modifications. How is everybody doing?

Welcome, Chris. Just curious, how many serpentine belts are on your engine?

It's a LQ4 MAF sensor.
You need them for N* setups or if you max your stock maf table.

Is the car black with black trim? (Rivmans old car?)

Thank you for quoting... lol

LQ4 is the 6 litre Vortec V8, and MAF is Mass Air Flow sensor.

since he has SLP headers among other things, I'm guessing its the series 2 95. it won't hook up to your 95. Not to worry since your stock TB is only 1 mm smaller than a N*, so its not much of a mod for us.

Hey guys, I dont know if its rivmans old car. it probably is though. I got it from a guy named Robert about an hour west of flint. Im gonna get pictures up here soon. It has aluminum 5 spokes on it, the car is pretty much all black with all black trim, black leather, everything black lol. And yes the 01 silverado maf is of an LQ4 setup. Its not a direct bolt on, just a little bit of modification.

Did you buy Travis's Riv out of IL? The Whipple'd one? We need to compare notes. I've ran 13.1 at 105 with a 2.0 '60 (running heavy with "20 street tires). With your trap speed, you should be at least in the mid 12's...

Not sure how I missed this post but I saw some pics of this car and it's really HOT. The interior makes me so jealous it's outta control. Everything is well done with it.
