1. i'm debating cost vs benifit on the engine options

Debating 3.8 twin turbo or the gtp supercharged 3.8.

Close in power so debating if the supercharged or the turbo will need more maintenance and cost

2. I'm doing the same to my Trans Am

It's almost 15 years old and showing its age even though it still runs strong. So far I've gotten:

New passenger seat bottom cover
Headlight motor
Sun visors for both sides
Leather shifter knob that was torn up
Power anteana
Repainted one side


Still need
Body control module (with programming)
Clutch slave cylinder
Hood and rear hatch supports
Couple of engine sensors

5. made my decision

gonna drop a buick engine in it.....if you know anything you know the engine thats going in it


It will cost less than a full rebuild with new heads and turbos.

400 hp on a bugdet will work {)
