The 1997 and up cavalier or just about all gm cars have whats called an obd2 system. That's the engine controll computer type and name. This wireing setup sucks. But any way the top speel limiter is built in and its really just a fuel pump shut off. you could just redo your hole fuel system but its …just alot easier to take your car to your local Chevy dealer ship and pay them to re conform you system and remove the rev limiter and fuel pump shut off system. but just so you know this onlyl adds like 10mph to you over all top speed. If you want to go faster then youll have to do some slight mods like an exhaust and cold air. (MORE)
Answer . \nInside the engine, mounted to the block. The oil pan must be removed to access the pump.
Although the 1991 Camaro rs has the potential to be a vrey fast car,the speed is limited to 110 mph by means of a fuel shut off chip located in the dashboard. Answer i have replaced the stock chip(extremely easy to do)with a chip from eBay which removes the speed limiter.that let me hit 145 on a… flat freeway with two over weight passengers and a bunch of camping gear.probably about 500 extra pounds.i then replaced the stock manifolds with pace setter shorty headers and a high flow y-pipe.i welded a Flowmaster super 40 series muffler directly to the end of the y-pipe(sounds amazing).i removed all stock emissions and topped it with a k&n filter.i replaced the stock speedomiter with an aftermarket 220 mph speedo and changed the speedo gear to match my 18" panthers.after all that my tranny went out so i bought a monster 700r4 off eBay with a 2200 stall.the speedo was checked for accuracy and i went out for a top speed run.it reached 165 real quick and slowly climbed to 175 and was done.i have the 305 ci v-8 and tbi. so for almost $3000 i gained 65 mph on the top end. it was pretty impressive for an all stock block and rear end.PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS ON THE STREET,ITS NOT SMART AND I SHOULD SMACK MYSELF FOR DOIN IT. Answer I have a completely stock 5.0L 305 v8 91 Camaro R/S, haven't done anything to it other than regular tune ups. Couldn't tell you the exact top speed cause the speedometer doesn't go high enough but there is no fuel shut off in mine. I've had the needle completely buried on many occasions and it was still gaining speed. I'd say at least 130mph but could more (MORE)

If not the alt or battery what could cause a 1979 Chevy Nova with a 6 cylinder in-line engine to stall and die at decreasing amounts of speed?
Answer . The same thing happened to me in my 1984 Mercury (I know, not the same), But it turned out to be the voltage regulator. Some older alternaters dont have internal voltage regulators.

My Chevy nova is a 1976 350 automatic and the speedometer goes up to 100, i haven't tested for myself yet, its still new for me.
What engines will bolt up to a 2 speed power glide from a 1965 Chevy Nova that came stock with a 250ci straight 6?
I believe that all small block v-8's until 1980 should fit no problem,I swapped a straight 6 out of my nova to a small block 400, and just recently a small block 350,
speed rated . It's depends on tire rating, H rated goes up to 130, and V rated is at about 140. But only if LT1, don't know about L99
i have a 1991 Chevy z71,all ive done to the motor is Keith black piston,forged crank.it goes bout 135,i blew the old motor, it had a very mild cam,torqued so much the front tires left the pavement on take off
Answer . \nThese cars came with a 10 bolt, 8.5" ring gear and an optional 12 bolt 8.875" ring gear.
you can buy the gauge at any auto store or even walmart and there are directions with the gauge.
There are two;first one under front bumper; then one between hood & top of Grill.
Answer . Yes. The only difference besides the inside door panel is the 73-74 doesn't have the wing vent window like the 68 -72.
The 1994 Chevy s-10 ss is computer governed so it tops out at 94 m.p.h. unless the computer has been modified
How can you tell which transmission is in your 1971 Chevy half ton with a 3 speed automatic with a 1985 350 v8 in it?
look at the pan, then go to your local auto parts store and ask to see a transmission pan chart
stock the car has a governor that kicks on at 108 mph. Top speed =108
Follow the top radiator hose, to where it joins the motor. Inside of that housing, is the thermostat.
It depends on the shape of the body, the engine, transmission and the originality of the car as well as the mileage for instance a 78' Nova with an original 350, and original 3 speed in the floor with only 85k miles and a great body could be worth around $18000 depending on the person doing the appr…aisal and the targeted party as far as selling it goes. As a car collector would easily give you more than the average person and if you don't know a whole lot about your car or get a good appraiser to let you know what it's worth you can miss out on some money.

1971 was a tuff year for ss cars.most came with disc brakes on the front wheels and the ss badging.you can't tell by the vin number or plate on the fire wall.ss came with bench seats or bucket seats,automatic and stick shift and column shifter or floor shifter.most ss came with a 12 bolt rear,but so…me also had 10 bolt rears.the last thing was a special handling package either f40 or f41 which was stiffer springs and sway bar,but you could buy this as an extra (MORE)
The RWD Nova compact's last year was 1979, the FWD Nova subcompact's last year (the Toyota Corolla clone) was 1988.
I timed it and i was going about 120mph but that is with the speed gov. My dad was clocked doing 144 in his.
The cops around here won't let me find out. I did try though. btw, anyone know a good lawyer? These guys have no sense of humor.
$15,000 condision does not matter much att all. $15,000 condision does not matter much a lot. $15,000 condision does not matter much a lot
you can have anything from the 6 cyl. up to the 396 v8 in the 68 nova.
A 1989 Chevrolet Caprice had low gearing, and an overdrive that would put the cars RPM at highway speeds very low. This being said I believe with enough time and a good drivetrain, a top speed of 140-150 mph is possible. Make sure for god sake that the road is straight, not the best handling vehicle…. (MORE)
mine tops out at 98mph but could go alot faster if there was no governor..
drive a screwdriver through the old ones and pop them out and to reinstall the new ones I put permetex around the edges and set them in place and get a socket about the size that will fit inside the freeze plug and drive them in with a hammer hitting on the socket.
all gear ratios were available back in the day but most nova's came with a 3.08 gear.
If it's like my 77 on the front side you will see a nut with two slits cut in it, take a pair of snap-ring pliers to loosen. On the back side of the switch box you will feel a spring loaded button press that in and pull on the light knob. . Hope that helped
112 mph on v6 and no limit on v8. This is for the 2007/2008 models. The v8 has a top speed of 154 mph limited by dynamics and horsepower only.
There is an OEM speed limiter of 95mph. The stock gearing of 3.73 could take the Duramax to ~140mph depending on RPM.
65-67 Novas are the same generation of body. Surely there are subtle differences in moldings, grilles and such. Just do Google image searches on both cars and make comparisons for yourself. Or start attending cruise-ins and swap meets. Talk to the Chevy guys. They just love to show off their knowled…ge! (MORE)
189kph me and my friend got his 2 liter up to 140, no joke.....okay on jack stands lol. but then the tires were about to get pulled off, just make sure you have high speed tire ratings lol
Most magazines will say 155. Though this was just a number they put down, the 96-97 Z28 can hit 165 and even alittle bit more.
A diagram of the 1971 Chevy Nova steering column would include theignition and the shifter information along with the steering columnitself. This type of diagram is often found in the Chilton's manualfor the year and model.
I think that the 74 is wider, but I am not positive. However, your answer would actually be, yes. Any hot rodder, can make anything fit anything, at any given time. As for bolting right up, I don't think so. Modifications would be needed.
Depends on whether it's a 6-cyl or V8, and if it's a manual or automatic Most of them had 350 turbohydramatic.
No, the brackets & everything are different since the body changed that year. The 73 has that wide strip between bumper & body so the curved sides longer to take up the gap. I think wheelbase also changed slightly. The 73/4 are the same.
"Fixing" a wiring harness, never seems to turn out well. Even for a pro. I would suggest you get a hold of someone like Year 1, or another reproduction company. Purchasing a new one, would be a drop in the bucket, compared to the bill the fire dept., may hand you along side the highway, after exting…uishing the flames from your soon to be very valuable old Chevy. Now, your harness is exactly the same for the Camaro, of the same year. (MORE)
They weren't known as Chevy IIs in 1979, but yes, they could have a V8
It really depends on the rear end (final drive) ratio. With steeper gears like 4.20's, it is redline limited. With a tall gear like 2.56's it would most likely be drag limited, given, they rarely, if ever came from the factory with a taller gear than 3.31:1.... Especially if the car was equipped wit…h a 4-speed. (MORE)
If you look under the drivers side of the dash, to the left of the steering column there is a rectangular box with a bunch of the old style cylinder fuses. Hopefully thats what your looking for if you havent found it yet
How do you remove the speed governor on a 95 Chevy 1500 it has a 350 the speedometer only goes to 100mph or is that top speed?
I've had mine at least goin over 100 maybe 105. With 350 mines a 93 ext cab 4wheel drive.
This would have to be the 67, L-72, 350hp., large journal, 327. This motor was reserved, pretty much, for the corvette. Some of the earlier convertibles may rival this car in production numbers, but, this is the most desdirable. A close second, would have to be the 68, or 69, either SS396, or, the B…aldwin Motion/Yenko/Nicky, versions. These would bring high dollars, if there are left. (MORE)
Nova in spanish means "no go." The camaro also had the same problem because it almost sounds spanish for "shrimp." Actually No va means no go but nova means new such as Que es nova? meaning What's new? Anyone who would mistake those two would also be likely to go to a carpet store to buy a pet for …their car. It just doesn't make sense. Mexico has a leading gas station named "NOVA" that does very well. Why would people go to a place that wouldn't make their car go? When I was in Monterrey there were numerous Novas still operating. A check of sales records going back to 1962 shows that Novas sold just fine in Mexico and in fact exceeded projections in many Spanish speaking countries such as Venezuela. So I guess the question is What makes you think the Chevy Nova was not a hit in Mexico? (MORE)
It has been reported the top speed is 110 mph and this is a hard limit due to the electronic governing device on board this model. Disabling the governor though can boost the top speed to 130 mph.
