General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

Click EDIT in the bottom right corner of the 3800 section. I added the 92 Bonneville info some time ago.

I posted a link to that a few months ago in the lounge as well. That site is pretty interesting though

Erm, I thought every other branch of GM used the S1 L67 before Buick, even though it was a Buick motor?

i fixed where you had posted the info on the 3800 in the 3300 section.. i moved it up to the 3800.... good job bill.... use the edit in the TOP right corner.... it seems the edit comes before the section, not at the end...

According to this article (and I know I've seen it mentioned in other places, just can't remember where) there were some late in the 1991 model year L67 park avenue ultras, I think I remember they were 195 hp
