Default L26 parts for my L36

SO there is * grand prix with a L26 at my local junk yard. What can I put on my car that would make it better. The Upper Intake, Heads, Exhaust manifolds, I'm willing to take anything off and mod it up to mine for any gains. Thanks Guys

the Upper intake will fit, you will need a TB adapter for the UIM to TB.

the L26 heads are reported to have slightly larger valves.

The LIM and the UIM insert is the same as yours, you could grad the lower as a spare and then port match to the LIM gaskets

Grab the whole motor.

The L26 upper is metal, not like the L36 plastic. It'* not a bad swap over to the metal manifold. Overall though.. there'* lots of parts you "could use"

Looks like I know where I'm heading tomorrow. Not the whole motor. Put all the intake, TB, maybe anything else I can pull of and mod up.
