Default V8 Kit

Domestic performance is looking for owners of 2000-2003 Bonneville’* that are seriously interested in swapping in a caddy northstar v8. We are involved in building a kit and would like to apply this kit to the Bonneville owner. We also are interested in owners wanting a rwd option.

Default Northstar?

Hey, sounds attractive. Let me know what is involved. I assume the supercharger isn't going to fit on the V8.

That'* if the V12 is released. Personally I dont think GM will do it. It'* the GM way, show something badass and dont use it. RWD Coneversion.... in my opinion it'* not worth it. Be better to swap in a Series II */C engine and then upgrade it and you can make without too much work 300-400HP.

It would be better to take an L67 and then convert it to turbo. Or get a Series II N/A (L36), build it up with L67 internals, with the better flowing N/A heads and then turbo it. Much better.
