wow that is too cool!!! I was so close to purchasing a reatta, they are hard to come by tho in good condition at a good price.

I want to get a reatta and drop the entire s2 drivetrain in with a nice cam.

just wait till people start stroking the 3800'*....they'll become believers in the tall deck 3800 the SII block is just too damn small for decent rotating assembly geometry....

these 3800'* (LG3/LN3/SI (buick)/SII(ecotec)) are veerrrryyy close cousins

Love the work man keep it up...i wish my project could be done that fast...

Regards, James

OMG, i so need to do that...that would just be sooo insane...i think once i get some money, i am gonna find a couple of junked 88-91 bonnevilles and for one i am gonna do a drivetrain swap and the other is gonna be a supercharged LN3...

NOW, fine tune it, add all the nice quick mods...like NGKs, and swap the coils for the 93-95 and such and DYNO that thing!!!!

Am I the only one who thinks that it may not be a bad idea to update to the newer style coils? From my understanding there are a direct swap.

Props for all the work. Looks good!

if your talking about the magnavox crapbox, then
yes ditch the damn magnavox ignition coils and module (the three coils are one piece and the terminals are on both sides of the unit) and get the later Delco ignition module, 3 seperate coils (all terminals on one side of the unit) and flat alum mounting plate and swap em on...direct plug and play...i dint have to touch the flat electircal connector wires... when i put the 94 Delco setup on the LN3 in the back of the 442 starts faster, and just plain runs better...the best part was i recently sold the good used magnavox for 80$....we made 20$ on the swap (paid 60 fer the plate, module, coils)

as fer if you already have the Delco...i think the only upgrade are the later L67 coils or aftermarket...

Visited Ryan of GMtuners/Sinister Performance today and he got my ECM all programmed just right. It pulls hard at any speed. No more hesitation.

BTW, my coil is NOT a typical Magnavox. It'* an Accel "high performance" pack sitting on top of my base. The Accel was cheaper than a new Magnavox or Delco.
