Hey guys! Ive been kinda snoopong around a bunch of forums for help on my project but finally decided to join one to get the help I need! Ive got a 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue with 44k on it. was my grandmas. She bought it new in 2002 and kept it in the garage for most of its life. Nothing done to it in the few months ive had it so far other than an oil change and a new radio (those are both ridiculous topics themselves) but just thought id say Hey so I can start learnin and asking questions!

That's awesome man. I didn't really appreciate these cars till I started driving one. I always thought they were just a grandma car or a sporty looking econo-box as far as some of the other W bodies. I now realize they can mean business if you get the right engine haha
