  1. FAQ section maybe????? can put up instaalling instruttions too, but real easy one youve gotten it out 1st off... i most likely missed alot of steps, and ill will add as questions are answered, ect ect ect...... and check my spelling later too IT IS possible to remove your transmission without removing the subframe Alright, since i recently replaced took the Transmission out of my car, ill explain what i did. (getrag 284 transmission) NOTE this was with a 5-speed transmission, and i DID NOT have to drop the whole Subframe 1. I started off by Removing the battery from the car/ and removed the drive side brace (felt it was easiest that way) and i removed the hood off the car for more room 2. I took all the lines off the turbo, and then used a 13mm (or 1/2") rachet wrench to remove the bolts from the downpipe (5 of them) and then the 4 on the x-over pipe. the turbo has to be removed to acess the transmission bolts. 3. i then took off my x-over because i decided to header wrap it up real nice to keep the engine cool everything else is already done so it was planned 4. jacked up the front of the car on the subframe and used an impact to remove the front tires 5. put jackstands (3) on the frame of the car (not the subframe on the driver side) 6. removed the brake calipier from the driver side front rotor. and tied it to the hood hinge 7. (driver side) removed/ seperated the ball joint from the control arm, and then remove the strut from the car by taking the 3 strut bolts off (1/2") from the strut tower 8. Drained the transmission fluid 9. unpluged all sensors ect on the transmission, and removed the shifter cables from the bracket. 10. put a jack stand under the tranny, left 1 bolt in the tranny slightly loosened and removed all the rest (18mm) 11. removed dogbones from the top of the engine, leaving them on the dogbone mounts 12. went back underneath and removed the bushings from the driver side., had it jacked right the control arm on the subframe 13. slowly lowered the jack and the engine and tranny went on a nice angle. 14. removed 4 bolts off the tranny mount 15. removed that last bolt on the tranny 16. pulled and pulled until the tranny finally break loose from the engine 17. slid the tranny out the wheelwell.
  2. ALright guys its offical, i have begun the swap, i will be posting a tonne of pics of the progress for your watching pleasure. im im doing this in my driveway for the time being and will pull the engine at a local gm dealership that has agreed to let me use their shop over a weekend anyways for starters, even when doing this yourself if you ever decide to do it, take alot of pictures, its will help refresh your memory on re assembly if required. Start of the swap, there is a few options, either you can pull the engine first or tackle the dash, or if you have help, you can have one on each. i decided to start on the interior. its pretty basic but time consuming, a 7mm, 10mm, extentions and 13mm are your best friends. im not going to get into details as the pics say enough for the interior, but for other stuff more details will be had to make things easier on yourself label all the connections like i am doing. im about an hour into the interior and here is my progress

    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

    My 700 whp 3.8L build.

    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..

    update again intermediate shaft to engine block mount, triangulated, this will be excellent. ready for powder the trans mount is wraped around the subframe in a U shape, hes a few more pics. clutch slave lines ran, you can see the gromet for the one line, the other will be going through the inspecton cover which is made of rubber aswell i made this bracket to keep the release bearing from spinnig on the base, on the top ill be using a P clup to keep the braided line down thats why its not tightened yet. engine and trans will be bolted onto the subframe tomorrow and may get put in the car if i get the chance.

    My 700 whp 3.8L build.

    got my spacer for between the engine and trans, 3/8" thick, the axles were already 1/2" longer then then "stock" last year as my axle geometry can be pretty nuts, so this year ill be ruiing the hybrid passenger one and a stock length drivers axle, will be perfect. also did some cosmetics.. cleaned up all my wiring, everyting is spereated, powers, rca's speaker wire, and the air ride stuff. you can see the power wire (1/0 ga) running down the drivers side also, you cant be a cool turbo build without some ubber clean interior... charcoal carpet.. was a late night, sorry about crap pic and seats.. i had the 04 cloth in there last year but accumulated 2 sets of leathers in the last month, im taking the best of each set and putting them in my car, removing the air bags, power portions, ect to lighten them up a little and then selling the other remaining seats. the parts on the seats are for a turbo install i am doing for a customer., just got them back from the powder coater.

    Actual Dyno CHARTS.

    it drops off a 6k because i was on a smaller ar turbine housing, but the turbo is fully spooled (19psi) well before 4k rpms, so yes im in boost for most of the run.. 4th gear. look at my old dyno a few up from this, same thing, the torque just keeps climbing,
