I'd drop in a L67 why just stop at a 3800.

Because the 3800 is the same thing as a L67.

Cool car! I think I recall seeing one of those around. We have a customer with a Cadillac Allante that comes in for service. It looks to be about the same size as that.

To be precise, the first 3 years came with the LN3, and Wikipedia states the 1991 got the L27 (series 1 NA, essentially a LN3 they fiddled with a bit)

I don't call ancient until LQ3 or before myself

Dropping anything into it would for sure involve replacing the transaxle? One of my brother-in-laws has a red Reatta . He keeps bugging me about what he can do to "soup it up" Being he is a Lutheran Minister without much mechanical experience I keep telling him to just enjoy it... He told me about the touchscreen and I was WTH???
