Why do I get the feeling this guy is not going to stop at the engine mods he has listed?

I've been working all week but got a few hours to make my run to Flint...



The '02 Regal GS engine, with 58k miles. Am going to degrease and powerwash it, but it really shouldn't need anything. I may or may not replace its sensors. The alternator and starter are in my possession, just not pictured.



Side view. I noticed the AC Delco filter...it may have had dealer oil changes and service, a good thing.



I pretty much just had the chains for the backhoe to use cuz I didn't have a chance to run home for the rest of my tie downs





Not the best pic...



Here, we have the 3900 flywheel, clutch disc, and pressure plate. I asked the yard to get me the flywheel-to-bellhousing measurement, and they threw in a this measurement too. I don't think I need it but it was nice of them








The three units apart



The flywheel. And folks, right there, is our magic number. 1 5/8'' from the flywheel face to the bellhousing. This is what I/we need to know to get a flywheel made up.





The clutch pedal, master cylinder, slave cylinder, and reservoir. My new transmission already has a slave cylinder.



G6 shafts on the left, Reatta on the right. The outboard ends are different between the two cars. I will investigate piecing them together tomorrow. I will probably have to consult a local axle specialist on this



(dramatic entrance music) The shifter



The business end



This photo does not need a caption



Hooked it up for the heck of it, and felt what it'* like to put it through all those gears



Cables attached to the transmission



I'll be back probably tomorrow and will report back with some more useful info

Awsome job! I am sooo envious!


I mean we all know the 3800 is at its most powerful when it is sitting in a BUICK engine bay!
