Love it so far. Fully loaded and has oodles of jam. It's surprisingly good on its feet for a 4300lb car! Finally got some 91 in it as the dealer fed it 87 and it was detonating like crazy at high rpm. Still get a bit of noise but it may see a Livernois tuner.
Previous owner took good car of it. Already has stainless cat back and cold air. Luckily the exhaust is tame otherwise I'd have to change it!

You would think the dealer would know turbo cars have to have premium fuel lol
You'd also think they'd notice detonation, but i guess not. Glad you like it!

The Eco boost can run 87, as its direct injection. Just can't be driven hard with it seems. Only fuel that's a big no no is 85.

You betcha! Big red isn't going anywhere any time soon. Got rid of the wife's cobalt for something a bigger/ more road trip friendly.

Great choice!  And, ditto your SHO's colors look sharp inside and out.

Nice car ! The early SHO's were fast but still kind of ugly. That's a nice looking car with plenty of gitty-up. I also love the color.

On a side note any car salesman I ever dealt with was only concerned with moving merchandise. Even the few who actually like cars don't normally care enough to put premium in them when needed. You normally have to go to the service department to find those guys.

Love the SHO. It's a bit of a misfit in 1989. Not so much now! Looking at changing plugs and will possibly go to a colder plug. Still getting pinging at high rpm. Seen pictures on a eco boost forum of guys changing plugs at 30000 miles and they looked really rough.
Hit it with some compound in areas and then polish and waxed it.

Looks great !  I think I use that same Meguiar's Fine Cut Cleaner.  Works quite well.  I loved my '93 SHO .  .  .
