So its still a 5.0 TBI, but a 5.7 LT1 is on the way. I like Bonnevilles, but theres no replacement for displacement (and RWD) I have all the interior and exterior parts that are missing. I took them off to prepare for the swap and for the interior color change. Were shooting for a gator blue exterior and a black interior. But, the drivetrain must be overhauled first, and were a few $$$$ short for the whole car.

If your wondering, it is an RS. It has stock ground effects (not shown), stock dual exhuast, t-tops, and a 4 speed auto with overdrive.

How about my exhuast with my new resonator. Not as ricey. The camera takes away from the throaty sound a bit though.

I see you're going with an AL 6.5 for the drivers seat

MMmm I love 3rd gens, I have had an 83 Berlinetta, 88 IROC, 88 IROC convertible, and 85 IROC, they are a blast to drive. I still want to get another 88 and do an LS1 swap/ 6 speed swap.

Nice...but once my motor is in less than 1 billion pieces.. we'll have to talk about your thoughts about replacing displacement

Maybe bigger, but it ain't better yet. Get that LT1 in there, then you can gloat.

you got a point there...another thing I cant believe is the clearcoat peal. Yes, I have seen it on many 3rd gens, but I think red/maroon is a horrible florida color.
