Thumbs up New Guy from SC

Hey everyone, I am new to the forum and joined in hopes to learn more about one of my new ventures. It is an 03 Bonneville SSEi, with a blown motor! First question, can I pull the engine from the top???

A little bit about me is I am a huge Buick turbo fan. I restore, mod, and tune them. I have had 12 of them my self and I am only 24

Here is a thread I started... https://www.gmforum.com/your-ride-gm-pictures-videos-89/few-my-force-fed-buicks-295548/

If anyone has a good source for a low mileage l67, please let me know!!!

Welcome to the forum! Let me say that I am VERY happy to have someone with your taste in cars here.

Just plain thrilled.

You might be surprised how easy it is to turbocharge that supercharged 3.8L. If you are looking for some serious power, it'* the way to go.

Welcome to the site.

Yes, you can pull the engine from the top.

Sounds like you and billboost will hit it off. He'* building a Regal.

Thanks guys! My initial thought was to stuff a GN engine in the thing but... no dice! It is the fiances car and she was having no part of that! I am glad to hear I can pull it from the top for sure! That is a relief! What are these things prone to? Anything in particular? I know the oil sending unit sucks and the radio lights are junk but anything else?

What is wrong with the engine that you say it'* blown? Perhaps start a new thread to cover this.
