Be nice if they worked on a kit for L27'*... Heck of a lot easier.. Just not in any GP.

I'll make you a kit if you want to give me the money for it. I don't think you will appreciate the cost of it though.

I completely agree that someone should make a kit for the L27'*, but it probably isn't gonna happen in the near future, if ever...unfortunately.

The L27 would be great candidate, considering the lower compression. The demand wouldn't be great though.

I have seen L36 rods, they look pretty beefy for a NA'd V6, same goes for the L27'* and LN3'*... But how well would the rods, pistons and wrist pins hold up, and the same would go for the tranny...
Well seeing how the CSC & Turbo L36'* are holding up just fine to 20+psi and numerous 11 second passes with the stock bottom end, I don't think anyone will have a problem with an M90. The tranny however would become a problem with more than just the M90 kit.

They don't call the 3800 one of the best engines of the 20th century for nothing.

an M90 would be more abusive on the tranny than a CSC or turbo. THe L36 is turing into quite the sleeper.

Yea, the roots blower is the only thing that gives you that instant torque, which is fun, but not good for the drivetrain.

the higher gear ratio (3.06) and compression (9.4) make the L36 a beast with any SC or turbo. The GP guy ran a 14.3 with the kit.

GP girl, I think. Either way, with a blower kit costing approximately $1000 and an INTENSE stage 1X cam kit costing approx. $1500, we may see a lot more L36s with boost in the near future.
