I would have say stay with what you got. Unless your into drag other such stuff stay with what you have. My bville has never dissappinted me yet esp when comes to power and torque. I know that other cars faster then me. But my car has never seemed to not be able to pass. But it is your car and if u do go with swap I am sure we will help with advise.

very true, its just another 4 door to most people

and i talked to Vig....his mom is willing to help him out with a car....she WILL NOT let him swap the L67 into his car
That'* not what she said ...The car is under my name, I could do an L67 swap if I wanted to, but she said she'd give me some money to buy a car this summer but NOT to swap an engine in.

So I guess that'* whats coming.

There is no way the trans would handle a turbo for long without a good build. Do it anyway, we need a turboed Bonneville around here.

OK I guess I'm going to have t start a new thread on this topic, because I'm really interrested in finding out exactly what is needed to do a turbo install on a L36. Tranny uprages ect.

Yes, it * a 15 second car. BUT... a turboed L36 would be a 12 second car. That is with a new built tranny.

I could do the swap, but I'd rather just get a new car since I've got my mom willing to contribute money toward the cause
