Default G'Day from down under

Hi there guys, I've been chatting with Dr Jay for a week or so now and it'* been a real learning experience.

It seems that you guys are using the same engines as we do in our Commodores and it looks like Australia might have a few little hop-up bits that you might be interested in.

Anyway, I'm Scott, I'm the Deputy Editor of Australia'* best Commodore Magazine, "Street Commodores" and I've got a fairly quick NA 3800 that I use as a project car for our magazine and as a daily driver.

I'll pop in and chat from time to time because Iove all things six cylinder and I think we can learn a bit off each other. It might just be the start of a beautiful relationship.

Hope the weather is warming up a little for you down under. Welcome to the club. We are always looking for tips and mods for the NA 3800 engine.

Most of my pic'* are at work, But i'll se if I can poach a few from our forum to show you guys. Don't get too excited, it'* very much a sleeper.

I love nothing better than shutting down guys in V8'* with my little 3800, including those with LS1'* (although I'll admit most of them are faster, but I do knock a few off from time to time).

Pic'* and video to come.
