hey guys... lots of GREAT info floating around here... been searching for 6 months for an info area, with ppl that actually have some real info... I'm so happy
anyways .. I need some help decoding my VIN # 1G3HY6930GW450928
it'* a 1986 Olds delta88 Royal Brougham with 319,XXX Kms .. from what I can tell it'* a full load .. but the suspension looks new or very recent (I live on Van Island off coast of BC ... basic surface rust is just a way of life under cars) and it'* not the auto level air rear
basically I'm trying to find the actual engine code and trans code for some basic performance parts.. or what ever can be swapped across or easily adapted
basically I need to do a full tune up on the car and wanna do some basic upgrades while I am at it
- msd DIS4 with wires + coil packs
- custom made "cold air" intake
thats basically all I have decided on for sure
- I am looking for lil more aggressive cam, lifters, pushrods to match and lil more agressive rockers (aka 1.5 /1.6 ratio)
- double roller timing chain ,however I would PERFER a quiet gear drive
other then that if anyone has any opinions on plugs lemme know...
I have reason to beleive the trans in the car is only about 50-60K kms old ... and the parts of the engine aren't far behind (mechanic shop grease pen markings on a few parts)
doesn't anyone know any simple bolt in peices along the way of "shift kits"
at the moment I am looking at a combo of Castrol High mileage in the engine, B&M trick shift in the trans .. and Z max in both (I know I have to keep putting Z max in evertime i do a fluid change) .. I'm really worried about the trans burning up and giving out I've heard some horror stories .. I would LOVE to swap in an L67 and a 4T65E HD ... I just can't find any right now I can afford... or even a 4T60/65 and keep the 3.8 I have now... I don't want a fast racer or anything.. I'm leaning more towards lowrider/daily driver (nice paint, simple interior mods, air suspension) .. basically makin it look nice and still be driverable and showable... but I want to improve the stock trans parts and get a lil more power (the stock final drive ratio'* kinda suck)
