engine- 3.1 v6 with portmatched intake plenum, larger injectors, carbon fiber intake tubes, oversized double pass cross low radiator the we had to modify to get the radiator to fit in the frame rails. pacesetter headers wrapped in lava heat wrap into a y pipe and out through a magnafloy muffler and out through the blown diffuser. msd ignition as well as a remapped computer program

Re: For you V6 guys

Love it. now I see why you didn't list engine mods on the episode. it's basically a stock engine. Sounds nice. Do you have a youtube page? I think 200 might be a little optimistic with untouched stock heads but it seems to run very well. I never thought i'd see a v6 thirdgen on that show. and now i'd love to see my turbo v6 on there.

OR: come buy my 2007 3800 SC, cam, headers, pulley drop, good stuff...
Then *I* will hybrid/turbo swap my 88!!!
Everyone wins!

Re: For you V6 guys

Marrow, curious if you have started an engine swap or have changed plans for the car's engine? Your car is beautiful and I would love to see what it can do with more power! Even if you turbo that v6!

Re: For you V6 guys

sooo the car is a road race settup... due to thast it needs sertain things..

an ls is the easiest, most cost efective, reliable and consisten power\

destroked down to a 311 it wont have low end power but it will have cositten tq vs hp curve as well as turn up to 9k red line and be supper wicked

i have considdered a 4 rotor

orrr a twin turbo 6 or compound turbo 6

the issue is weight... it has to be light to keep the weight bias... and i would rather have na due to consistancey on the track



i would love to see what its capabilties are too....

Re: For you V6 guys

So your plans haven't changed then. Hope to see your swap happen soon. I am saving up to do the same myself. Want to go LS3 with a t-56 (possibly magnum) once funds allow. That will drop a good chunk of weight from my current 305.

Good luck to you!

Just realized you got some new wheels on it. They look great! Also looks like you removed the front lip?
