    Wanted
    Let me know if anyone’s got a set of connecting rods for the L32 I’m building my L36 to handle boost and am trying to save as much money as possible. Will pay a reasonable price. I can get a set of new ones for 325$ but was thinking someone on here might be trying to get rid of some.

    Hi all, I'm a bit lost and need some advice. My car is a 2002 Park Avenue (base NA model) that I inherited from my grandfather. At first I didn't think I wanted to drive it, but it's a great car. It also has sentimental value. It now has about 120k miles on it and has had the upper intake...

    FWD 3800 Engine Swaps
    I have just completed the engine swap, putting a 3800SC from what I believe is a 99 Grand Prix GTP into my 97 Bonneville SSE which was normally aspirated. Pretty straight swap from the bolt up perspective. Swapping the flywheel was the only change I made to get it bolted up. The electronics...
