Now, if you want a REALLY cool Oldsmobile get a LSS supercharged with a sunroof. L67 power!

jim: the more I look at that bonnie, the more it looks like an '87. Does that trim extend down into that grey area at all? Or is it just the car is two tone, and it appears to extend down?

Yeah that'* the order I'd put it too. The LN3 we had was a good engine, but the L27 was even better. (and more powerful definately.) The L36 we had was good too, but I wouldn't say it was better than the L27. In order I'd go LN3, L27/L36, L67. (just in my own experience ) Justin, have you owned all of these different variations of the 3800, or are you just thinking that the LN3 is best because it'* what your year bonneville has?

i'm being sarcastic..

I think the LN3 is a kick *** engine.. because mine is 16 years old.. 150,000 miles, and she is damn fast IMO. I have not owned or driven a S1 or S2 bonnie.. I have driven my mom'* '04 bug [100hp], my bonnie [165hp], '96 suburban [diesel 190hp], and an '85 BMW 745i with an engine unknown to me..

Of those all, my mom'* was the slowest, the suburban second slowest, bonnie, bimmer [turbo'd, and I don't think it was stock.. because I wasn't even on it, and chirped the tires from the 1-2 shift]. I am sure a supercharged L67 would blow my LN3 out of the water, hands down. But n/a power forever! loL!

The LN3 is an awesome engine. My mom has been driving my 89 since March and the car just turned over 228K. Still all original and the thing runs as good as my 93.

That BMW isn't turbo'ed stock, IIRC, BMW has generally stuck to the tried-and-true method of extracting their power from natural aspiration. And, the highest that the 7 series got in 1985 was a 3.5 I6, meaning it was a 735i.

edit: i stand corrected, a quick Google reveals that there was a 1985 745i with a turbocharged 3.5 I6. I never would have guessed Oh, and it'* got self-leveling suspension

I'd vouch for the L27 also. It'* same me motor, only better. Not the best ever, though. I'll leave that to the six-inline produced in the land of the rising sun

150,000 miles is nothing, general maintaining can get most cars there. 100hp is enough to chirp the tires, our cars are fat, so it takes so much more of it to do so :wink

just checked with my dad, its got the same thing you're talking about. However the suspension is not air, but hydraulic. So, its slightly different, his exploded and pissed fluid everywhere, the German stuff is like $30/qt. I think air is cheaper
