    88-96 3800 turbo?

    my old lumina (gen 1.5) was cartuning turboed, you would have to ask kevin at cartuning for a modded 97 style upper downpipe and you would have t o tweak the lower portion of the downpipe

    3800 series III starting problem

    in the 04s they were a return less fuel system with a filter under the car with a return hose, if the filter is old, its most likely causing this startup issue

    holden was just test fitting once again, for height and clearances with the hood, no issues. the upper intake is going to be modified to fit a 90mm ls1 TB, the holden stock tb neck will be cut off and the tb will flare out into a rectangle on the side of the uper intake to keep the same area as the 90mm TB, no bottle necking then for optimal flow. im going o be reinstalling the wire harness, mounting the Power steering resovoir, and cleaning up the engine bay tomorrow. i also have to cange the valve covers around. you can see how much free room the drive side has for the turbo kit now, can fit a 3.5" downpipe in with no problems it appears. i will be running stainless braided fuel lines in the car aswell, was getting the measurements with the intake and fuel rail in aswell. its been a fairly long proces but its finally getting there more pics tomorrow

    a bunch of udates in a row hee i forgot to post here the turbo i am going with is a turbonetics t76 Billet, ball bearing t4 divided housing, 1.3ar, with a soundperformance spool valvebuy, this will be the cats ass as for progress, was very busy, and had some more modifactions before installing. the holden intake uses a different tensioner and the power steering downt have a resovoir so there was no room for the stock PS pump and resovoir. i searched long and hard for a remote resovior from a gm, to keep as many GM partss as possible on the car, i found this this is a power steering resovoir from a chev optra, PERFECT! lower intake manifold..

    V8 engine swaps

    you can swap this without crazy amounts of fabrication, ie, it came in a w-body already
