Anybody know of a good quality L36 I could buy? I'd love to build a Frankenmotor using my L67 top. Otherwise I'm just gonna find the newest L67 I can and build it up then swap it into my car.

I think Dan suggested to me once to get a L32 block instead of L36 or L67 for a project that your planning on Nick.

I'm not gonna be running big power. I'd basically just improve how the engine flows to increase power AND efficiency. L32 costs A LOT, even for a used one.

Though, those only came in Grand Prixs right? What years?

I couldn't tell ya what they came in. And I don't think they would cost that much more, its still a V6 and you wouldn't increase that much power, just have a stronger bottom end vs the 36 or 67.

Port Polish the top end and you will be fine. Maybe a cam.

the idea behind the l36/l67 is the lower end is cheap, and slightly higher compresion

as far as that thread i dont remember the end, i think he reposted a different thread documenting his neverending KR issues. dont remember if he found the fix.

Sorry, I should have been more specific, if doing a top swap, the L26 would be better than the L36 or L67, and I was talking about this thread when Dan was making the recommendation... https://www.gmforum.com/general-gm-c...y-year-303944/

L36/L67 Series 2
L26/L32 Series 3 NA/Supercharged respectively

I messed around with photoshop for a bit. Right now I am making a set of tinted headlight covers for my CS.

I wanted to get an idea of what it may look like. I think I got a bit carried away on the tint level in photoshop.

Yeah, I made one so far that one still need tint and I still have one more to make. My CS is 45 minutes away in storage. When the times come I'll put them on a take pictures. For now here is the stock photo I modified.

Here is a rough look of what I've done so far. If anyone is interested. I could do a complete write up on how I made these.
