    an 85 has a feedback carb,I would save your money-the chip can only manipulate timing and add fuel at part throttle,it will ping on reg pump gas and youll nned 92 octane minimum,on newer gm's Hypertech makes the power programmer-its worth the money,but I would not buy one in your case<p>----------<br>John D<br>
