Actually, since the core support wouldn't be taking the full torque-load that it does on the W-body, it would be more than strong enough, and it would be a great way to firm up the motor. I've been thinking about doing that on my PA for a while, only thing is, we'd both have to do some fabrication, because the measurement are way different...

It'* been done by adding plate to the core support to strengthen it.

Is the stock support not strong enough? If he'* using stock-esque motor mounts, I think those are made for keeping the passengers sitting fairly still while the engine jiggles. I'm all for added motor mounts and polyurethane bushings, though. If the mount fits, go for it!

Are you getting new swaybar bushings and endlinks too? the red stuff firms things up nice. I know I am being a pain with all my questions but for some reason I am drawn to your particular car build and find it very exciting mostly because your doing everything I wish I had time to do on my Bonnie.

i already had the energy susp on there. they were a couple years old, so ill prob just get new ones for the 12 bucks. but going from old rubber to new polys on the sway bar was a huge difference. on any car.

and keep the questions rolling. not a pain at all. i enjoy em.


on the paint, i think im gonna have to skip it. the down time is becoming a real hassle.and the cold is gonna creep up fast. heck it frickin november tomorrow. i should be happy that its not freezing already.

i power washed the hell out of the eng and trans today. they look better. and even tho im not painting, a clean eng will dissapate heat much better than a grimy one

Rock on! Maybe next winter I will have the down time to show the boosted boys what a L36 can do with some Yankee brains and Redneck balls

you can get some real decent power just by modifying and improving stock parts. ive read that a port and polish on the LIM, does wonders for a L36.

im currently porting a LIM for my L67, that will go on next spring. as long as i can work on adjusting the fuel curves on the prom, cuz the LIM isnt the only thing that will change

Pardon my lack of supercharger identification skills. I am what you would call one of the N/A guys and believe in making power without whining

I love all Bonnevilles boosted or not but you have to admit a high compression,stroked,and cammed L36 sounds sweeter than most other V6'*
