I have a '96 Grand Prix with the L82 v6. I intend to do an engine swap some time in the future when I have the time and resources to do so, but for now I'm interested in what my options for upgrades are or if it is even worth it to modify the stock engine at all. Is a goal of gaining 20-30 horsepower realistic with some bolt on parts and an aftermarket ECU? I want to hit 200 horsepower but 180-190 seems much more attainable.
1997 Lumina 3100. The bearings seem to be bad in my compressor. The air doesn't work and we don't have money to fix the system right now. I don't want to buy a brand new compressor and install it without freon or lubricant, but I'm afraid the present compressor is going to lock up. My best idea was to go to a pull-a-part and find a compressor that has good bearings and install it and keep it unplugged until we can afford to fix the entire air system. I've already replaced the tensioner, water pump and installed a new belt because they all had bad bearings as well. I also don't really want to install a shorter belt and bypass the compressor because that would probably cost as much as buying a used compressor. Any other ideas? Thanks,
