Default New 3800 Series I Owner

Hi!

I have a 2000 GTP with and intake, ubend delete, 2.5" to the y, res delete, 180 therostat, 41-932 (1 step colder AC Delco plugs) and a ZZP Power Log. My car is currently being tuned wtih a Power tuner and is awaiting a 3.4 pulley. I know most all of the things that I can do to make my Series II pretty fast.

My questions are on how to make a 95 Park Avenue Ultra run a little better? I just bought a 1995 Park Ave. w/ the series I SC. It only has 65K miles!

I am sure that there are many things different from the M90 SC cars, but I am sure that there are some similaties too.

Can the series I be tuned with a Power Tuner, are there PCM upgrades? What is required to run a 2.5" pulley on the series I. These are all questions that I have. Thanks alot guys.

Welcome to BC. Only 65K miles is amazing.

Up in "Techinfo" and in the "Forced Induction" section, you will find alot of information for improving the performance of the Series I, M62 motor. Some of the same things to drop a pulley size on the Series II applies to the Series I for KR. You won't have a U-bend to contend with at least. There are chips available for Series I, but I am not sure they are cross applicable to the PA.

They dont advertise a whole lot of aftermarket performance parts for the PA'*. I know that the 94-95 bonnies are similar. Are these cars OBD-II? I know that some things say 96 and newer. Thanks, I will take a look at some of the things in the techinfo.

The 95 Bonnes are Hybrids...OBD 1 1/2 we call them, since they are OBD II with an OBD I connector (I think), really wacky. I am not sure about the PA in '95, but I assume that they are OBD II. Research the "Other 3800 powered" section. I know we have some PA owners that will chime in soon, and if they don't, repost your question in the "Other 3800 Powered" section for better exposure.

Also, here is a link to a very popular site for SI owners.
