Ok..I'm sorry.. Pat'* L27 with the original 1993 plugs and wires on it is the fastest car on the club. He'* got the time slips to prove it.

My point was that we see all sorts of things, because while one is supposed to be faster than the other..no two motors are the same.

You might really find an L27 that flies and does very well. However for the majority the progression holds true.

Also don't forget that one car may 'feel' quicker or faster than another, but that may not be the case. For instance, Boosty'* S2 vs. S1 comparison. The S2 is free-er revving than the S1, and can give the impression that it'* quicker than it really is. Not saying it'* NOT, but until you put them side by side, you can't really tell. Especially with the times the S1 guys have been posting lately.

Only driveability issue is the driver :P
Sorry, back on topic now.

The L36 in 95-99'* and 00+'* is a great motor and I would be very happy with that if I wasn't already spoiled and such a gadget loving guy.

Only thing I noticed that one could find as a complaint would be the initial off the line of the 00'*.

I just went and looked at mine, and it has original plugs and wires. Does this mean my car is as fast as Pat'*? Probably not. Mine gets 30mpg too, and drives like it'* new.

I think the L36 is quite formidable, you arent going to find too many "normal" cars of the L36'* era that can run with it, unless theres something special about them.

look at the cars that might be considred in the same general class as the Bonneville, cars like the Taurus, Intrepid, Maxima...cars like that. The newer Maximas would of course roast an L36, but the ones from the same years as a Bonneville might not be as much competition.

But i doubt youre going to find a non-SHO Taurus that can hang with a Bonneville.

The L36 is simply what it is, the middle ground between the L27 and L67. It provides the average user with plenty of driving excitement and more than enough balls to put a smile on your face, and still maintain some excellent highway mileage, for the people who want more, theres the L67....fancy how that works out eh?
I agree with you, the L36 is a fanastic engine. The fact that L36 can outrun other cars of its size and sometime even smaller cars is all ***** and giggles. I'm just saying that L36s don't get as much attention as L67s, granted, they're MARVELOUS but some people have no choice or did take the L36 over L67. Believe me, I couldn't be happier with my L36, its torque band just amaze me every time I rev her out (properly warmed up of course) I noticed that it seems to be a passing monster. When I need to pass some one because they're driving errantically or slowly, I just push the pedal and she seem to leap and charge hard. I'm sure it applies to L67s too. I also read somewhere that the L36s and L67s are on-ramp chargers. I can account to that, it'* definitely true.

I'll call the L36 "The Car Overtaking Monster" I have NEVER experienced a L67 so I can't side with you guys but I'm sure once I ride one, I'll side with you guys.

Overall, the L36 is a pretty damn AWESOME motor. It feels like a small V8 while the L67 feels like a large V8

Think of the L36 in terms of being a 'torque-hound'.
Think of the L67 in terms of being a 'torque-monster'.

The L36 outproduces every V6 in it'* class in torque. That'* why it feels like a small V8. And it'* perfectly geared to take advantage of the torque. My main point is that it'* not just the L67 that'* torquey. All the Buick 3800 V6'* are. Going all the way back to the 80'* (yes even in the 82-86 body style, you could get a 3800 V6 base. The 305 was the larger option).
