i could probably do a lot of copy/paste... but i still need to fill in quite a bit about MAF tuning, since most of that article was written about speed-density...

depends on the year IIRC(i know the 06-07 G6 GTPs have them, i think the GTs may have been 3500s though).... but it'* been in a few vehicles by now. the easiest one to source(and have to modify things the least) would be from a W-body... and the 06-present Impalas have them, and they seem to be all over up here... hard to argue with 240/240 N/A with an amazing exhaust note and decent fuel economy.

the F40 is also something that'* been on the table for quite some time...too bad only the G6s got them... makes for some more fab work for me...

financially? no, it'* probably a horrible decision since there are other motors out there that would drop in and work with half the work and cost, but this car has a lot of sentimental value.... not so much with the engine/trans, but i decided a while agoit was either going to have a big 660 or a N* breathing under the hood..... and a N* would be an even bigger PITA.

i've been considering another for that project.... and having them be twins externally, but FAR different under the hood...

you win 1 internetz.

and since the 3900 is likely as big as they will ever get, i see no reason not to....

the direct injected 3.6 would be nice, but holy hell would that be a project within a project within a project.....
