*drools* me want, me want!! The trannies are definatly beasts, but only if well maintained. otherwise they break like a damn toothpick. The engines are bullet proof also, but only if well maintained. Anyone noticing what is required to keep your LG3 or LN3 happy?

The engines don't seem to quit even when abused. The TRANNIES on the other hand would probably need a few coolers from factory. That and much stronger components :(

the turbo is probably as small as a golf ball... i think a series ll L67 swap would be more fun

I think that if I were going to swap I would drop in a northstar and have it turboed. That would kick the crap out of an l67 LOL

It uses a T25 turbo. That is quite small, but it probably spools up very quick considering it'* size.

That'* coll as heck!!!! I wonder what the torque #'* are for it? I'd think it would have a little better performance considering the 1990/1991 SSE has a 3.33 gear ratio and the SSEi'* had the 2.97 gears. Maybe after 10-20k miles it'd be a little looser.
It'* also $500 cheaper than the turbo kit from PFYC for the Series II 3800'*.
Is this company (AVC) still in business? I wonder if they might possibly have any kits sitting on the shelves somewhere that they might sell for a discounted price?
