If you cannot be blown, you better have 2 more cylinders to compensate

I give you Aurora V8

Once the cover its off its just a composite upper plenum just like yours, but its slightly bigger. Doc, ya, its a PITA to work with, but its a joy learning and it goes like snot.

Stop light to stop light an SSEi may beat me, but 3800'* just dont have the legs that the L47 does on the freeway or long stretches. Oh and the intake, its in the trunk. I need a cone filter and an IAT adaptor, oh and once RSM lowers the price of an 80mm TB, then I will do the intake, for now, its gutted/K&N

Don't sell your 3800 short my friend I had the joy of crusing with an L36 powerd SE last night on the freeway, in black no less, the cars go together like PB and J In fact you'd be suprised how many Bonneville owners have gona Aurora. its the next logical step up
