I would very much love to see the air intake setup on that car. I've had several people call me locally asking if my supercharger kit will fit on a Camaro with the 3.8L but I've had to tell them no because of the problem with not clearing the firewall

Only two options really, outside of an aftermarket blower. Aussie m90 or cut/mod the usdm */c housing. One guy did the latter on fullthrottlev6. And IIRC that'* a mace Air to Air intercooler plate in the pic.

Hmm I was afraid of that. I think I saw the one the you're talking about on fullthrottlev6 but that'* a bit out of most people'* ability and budget.

as far as im aware the L67 pistons and rods wont fit as they are shorter... i could be wrong tho, what is the piston and rod height on the L27 and L67?? what sort of power is being made with the L67 unopened?

95naSTA im really suprised by that we have 4.2ltr and 4.3ltr stroker kits for these engines plus multipile turbo and supercharger set ups...

sseidriver97 yeah there great old engines, the only thing that seems to kill then is high revs oh and not being tuned properly

thanks for the welcomes
i agree in a sense as i had a lesabre that only had two gears for about a month and i drove it everyday revving the chit out of it thill i fianally rebuilt the trans then the subframe dropped 3 months later lol

for your honeymoon tell your bf you want to go to Lord Howe Island (google it) its off the east coast of australia and much nicer place then the barrier reef and is more romantic too, but still visit the reef, yeah ive been to Seaworld but from what ive seen the SeaWorlds in america are bigger and better, only have like dolphines and sharks and polar bears etc, no wales or anything..

95naSTA- in the pic i posted its acturally a BYE performance carbon fibre air to air intercooler plate.

sseidriver97- lol thats got to suck..
