    I think they designed these engines pretty good for boost, they are pretty much bullet proof hi or low comp.

    And who the fck asks the wife for permission you girls need to get your balls back. I told the women I was buying a turbo for the gp years ago, she said if I do she is gone. Its been turbo what 4ish years? And guess who is on the couch to the right of me.........yup STILL there!

    SO mu ch to upgrade? Bolt the thing on and go boosting, dont run 20 psi on a stock trans and you should be crusing for a while, my pump was going out on the trans only reason I beefed it up.

    Interested.
    Yes whole shabang. Front upper and lowers, rear lowers. All four mounts, and the fronts have bearings. HOWEVER. It's looking like I MIGHT keep them and get some dirt cheap struts to put on the car and drive it.

    L36 doesn't care. Alex ran his L36 at over 500whp on this setup IIRC. The only thing that really NEEDS upgraded is the trans. It'll make plenty of power with a baby cam, or even a stock cam for that matter, with stock heads and all.

    Walmart and one of those dollar stores. The dollar store I know for sure has rolls of 3M packaging tape for $1 vs $5-6 like say at the post office or something.

    I ran an l36, itís better for turbo anyways. Run the l26 uim and do the HD diff upgrade if you havenít already and keep boost low while you save for a trans. But buy a tuner before you do anything else if you donít already have one.

    Alright, well if you decide not to keep them, I'll take them. Would just need a price shipped to 53718. Paypal ready.

    Intercooler and/or e85 is how you keep from melting pistons with the higher compression.

    I can honestly say I've never heard of someone melting a piston in a 3800. Chipping them sure, but that's usually a tune issue.

    My pistons melted after they popped and I had to drive 20 mins home on 3 good pistons lol. The piston pieces were mashed into the valves but didnít damage them some how.

    I popped 3 pistons on the dyno because of too much knock on is3 setup. They popped and then the pieces got mashed up into smaller pieces. The carpet under my center console started smoking because the cat got so hot. I was able to use a wire wheel on the valves to get all the piston pieces off. I though I had a pic of them but I canít find it.

    Bump, dropped prices on pretty much everything, including turbo setup.
