I bought a relatively clean buick a few weeks ago and I'm allready thinking about pointless mod'*.
I can get parts pretty cheap and the thought of a stupid quick buick box makes me happy.
So heres my wholy amature plan... I figure I should just get the entire D/T from the donor car along with the ecu and harness. The */C'd cars I have seen all have the ecu in the bay and I assume that the trans comp is intigrated with it.
So it all seems simple. A little too simple 1 drop in new drive train + harness and comp.
2 wire in ignition circuit. 3 possibly replace fuel pump. 4 enjoy
Superchargers though are hard to find in good condition. I have a good M62 I bought for my mazda before deciding on a turbo instead and short blocks are plentifull.
So if I decide to start with an earlier M62 donor can I upgrade to an M90 later? Or can i use a m90 equipped donor with the M62 till I can find a better SC?
I've got a lot of reading to do so any advice or direction is appriciated.
Also I badly need struts. What are some good options for a smooth but firm ride?
I am thinking of trying Bonneville ssei struts. I believe they should be the firmest factory struts and they still seem smooth enough. Will they fit assuming same gen platforms?
