Default you know what would be really cool....

if some dropped a SII L67 in a Lesaber, like the 92-up body. Do all the necessary go fast mods so it can run low 13'*, like a IC M112 conversion and all the good stuff,beefed up the trans, get F41 springs or lowering springs, and sways.....

it would be really funny blowing away a mustang, espically if the Lesaber had a cloth top

if you're gonna go that far, why not a 4.6 northstar? at one point DP was offering to drop one into an H body for 9-10 G'*

ya that would be cool but the engine wiring harness and the PCM would be a direct swap, from another */C H body

nope no 5 liter northstar....

why a northstar though.... the fwd version of the northstar was a flop, it lacks in accelleration (or so i here). the 3.8 would probly be the better option

well my dream for my lesabre (in a few years, when it'* not my wife'* daily driver anymore) is to either put an l67 in it, or put a nice turbo on it (haven't decided which one would be more fun to do). put the full f41 setup in it (that might happen sooner than that) , some different rims (something a little larger to fill those huge wheel wells a little bit better), but the real fun part was this: a full interior swap. I really wanted to do a full sse/ei interior swap (black), but I'm not sure how much of it would be able to cross over - there'* more I need to look into there first. this last weekend, when talking about it with theJMFC, he recommended the LSS interior, which is also very nice, imho.

when it'* all said and done, it would be almost completely stock looking on the outside, but still have a wicked punch...

but that'* still down the line. and i'm debating how much I'm going to put into making an h-bod go fast (and make the interior bearable) versus how much it would be to buy a proper rear drive performance vehicle... like a 2005 goat, or something of the sort. we'll see...
