I hope this theard is like a bad joke, if it isn't I will go crazy... Why did you trade a L67 3800 for a lil 1.5L 4 banger? Well I would miss that tq and performance from day one you cut you hp by 75%! What a shame... And did I metion you kissed goodbye 400+hp! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH I can't beleive it... Enjoy your XB... Nate will like it tho! At least it stays in the forum!

The xA is the wife'* new Flint Mica xA, we picked them up the same night

The bonne doesn't have 400HP any more, it has the cam, pcm, modular pulley system, and that'* it. It is still at about 300HP easy... and I drove it a bit today and missed the power already..

BUT, it'* a brand new car
Stick shift
MUCH better for kids
Very roomy
NO rattles
NO rattles

Warranty
Different..

I could go on and on.. but I like it and the bonne will make someone else happy I am sure It'* no joke for now, but neither is an LS1 in our Grand Prix in the near future either....

I originally wanted the TC, but the xB is so much more fun, better view, more usefull for kiddies, etc.

There will probably be a turbo in it'* future, but for now it'* awesome for gas milage and just much more usefull in my current possition. As said above, I'm not out of the 3800 world yet, but that 3800 in our grand prix may be swapped for an LS1 when I have a house to work on it in *which is looking like January hehe*

Yeah but if I put any kind of forced air on this it would be a turbo, it is far easier to do for one and has a lot more control on boost levels. I'm done with superchargers for now, at least eatons hehe.

MyLIttleBlackBird has a nice German turbo we took off an Audi 5000CS..... it should be PLENTY big for a 1.5 liter motor...... maybe he'd sell it to you?


But of course, you probably want new equipment on that ride.... wouldn't be bad for test fitting and short-term use!
