I got them bars from a scrapped SSEi -

I have a question for you - did your olds come with a rear sway bar?
The funny thing is mine didn't - however it did come stock with a strut tower brace.

Very bizarre


I think I just might gut the box tomorrow - and get the high-flo cat as well ( I need to find a cheap place for install ) - but my main concern is that at 100km/h and up my engine starts making a sewing machine-like noise. I know the 3.8 is supposed to be a good engine and capable of 300k kms plus - but mine feels tired - and I am sure it has something to do with that sewing machine noise. The power down low is good - but the top end seems to be lacking from what it used to pull.

The noise is audible with gas pedal application - so, usually after the 100km/h mark - I start hearing it.


I am toying with the idea of a rebuild vs swap

You got that address?

And did you buy the Cat from them?

And the SSEi is a 32mm front sway bar

Sorry!
Missed this the first time.
The place a used was Pipes on Lawrence, just east of Pharmacy in Scarberia. Should be in the phone book. They sell the cat too. (Got mine through a friend).

Let'* drop the chit-chat. We have other places for that. There'* a wee too much off-topic chatter in this one.

Dual what? True dual from the exhaust manifolds back, or dual outlets? I can tell you true dual is totally unnecessary, and may actually hurt your performance unless you drastically reduce the pipe diameters.

Dual OUTLETS are possible. Both on one side, or one on each side.
