Default New From MD

Hello Everyone!!

My name is Mike and I am from Beltsville, MD. I currently own (2) Pontiac'*:
1992 Bonneville SE (L26)
2003 Grand Am SE1

I have been a member since March yet, have finally had sometime to start chating!
I work as a Mechanic Apprentice and I see a lot of the L26 and L36 engines come into my shop so, I hope to learn alot from you guys and throw a little of my insight in as well!!!

yea id rather you get a series 2 3800 to supercharge or just wait on a deal for a gtp or ssei =] they are pretty fun and easy to mod.

Agreed on just waiting and getting a gtp or ssei. Although if you know what you are doing, there have been a lot of people who have top swapped n/a 3800'* and have had a lot of success. Nice looking cars you have there though, welcome to GMForum!

Well with it having 160,000 miles on it I really dont want to go to crazy with it...I am used to tuning cars yet, that kind of miles on any vehicle that is not built for forced induction can be harmful!!

Ah, yeah I wouldn't start modding/force inducting it at that point. Granted, a lot of these engines will hit 200k+, but like you said, prolly not the best idea to supercharge an engine that has that many miles. GTP'* and SSEi'* can be found pretty cheap nowdays, especially the older body styles such as mine and sseiyaaround'*. ****** one up that has low miles!
