Just trying to save a few bucks. I figured if I could blaze a new trail in the 3800 world, I might be able to provide the research for more guys to follow in my footsteps. I think I'll be making some solid horsepower once we get the cam timing where it'* supposed to be. But I digress

Great post, and gave me some more ideas. My "original' mod was to get new OEM STS Northstar badges for my fenders since Pontiac was'nt allowed to use them.50 bucks for two but it'* bugged me since I notice them missing in the showroom after discovering it had a N* underneath the hood. Now my Bonny feels "complete"

I guess I was the first to totally clear my rear tails & center section, although I got the know how and idea from the guys on the board that had already cleared there rear corners.
