The series 2 */C is a totally different world. I had a 93 w/ the L27 and it doesn't even compare machanically to the 97 LSS w/ L67. 96' is the first year with the series 2 L67 and it still had the 4T60-E HD with 2.97 gearing vs. the 4T65-E HD with 2.93 in 97 and beyond.

Is 2.97 better? I found a 1990 Cavalier z24 with less than 100k miles and it looks really nice and comes with the 3.1 V6. They are asking $2700 which I think is a pretty good deal considering the low mileage but is the 3.1 6 any good? My buddy had a Grand Am with the 3.1 and it was a pretty quick car but my 3.4 on my Grand Am still took it by a couple of car lengths. Id like to stick with a V6 and this car seems perfectly suited to my tastes.

That Cavalier with the 3.1 is a very nice car. My uncle has a 91 z24 with the 3.1 and a 5 speed, and its a quick car that handles well. He has had the car since new, and it has 160,000 miles on it now. The car still runs and drives excellent. If you like a smaller, sporty car, I really like that body style cavalier. 3.1L is a lot of motor in a light car like that, it will be a lot faster than your heavy H body with the old series I in it.

I heard that they used to sell 1989-90 Grand Prix'* with a turbocharged 3.1 and that I can easily swap the two engines without much modifications. That would be awesome since those engines are rated at 205hp and 225tq.

I think I might get that z24 because I told my dad about it and he seems pretty interested. Its automatic but to me thats a good thing because Ive never driven a manual. It only has 79k miles so hopefully it runs really good. I think it only has a 3 spd tranny, is that bad?

if your tranny is under warranty, i would have that looked (for free) before i would start talking about spending money. i know it can be frustrating when a car just keeps on giving you problems, but at least exhaust the *free* options before you start spending money
