    The problem is the heads.. They are so restrictive and little can be done with them.. Best to FI a 3800 for powa..

    No, it will need minor firewall mods.. Then the TB will need rotated around towards the front.. The top blower is an older style, and the bottom one is a newer style.. The top blower would require the l67 heads aswell because the l36 has no injector holes in the cylinder heads.. The castings between the l36 series-II and the l67 series-II have the same castings, valves, and flow.. The only diff is the injector holes I mentioned, and valve springs the holes can be milled or drilled.. L36 runs ~ 9.4:1 cr and the l67 runs an ~ 8.50.. This is accomplished by the differance in piston tops and not the heads.. mostly done for reliablity purposes.. An l36 can be tuned for the added CR and an added blower. Tho I'd recommend heavier valve springs, and an 85mm fly by wire tb upgrade for the guys still running the smaller dia. cable type TB's.. There's more to it but you get the pic I think.. The new gen eton 90 actually sits slightly lower than the l36 upper intake.. This is due to the 90 being in puller cars and needing to be more compact for transverse engine bays..

    Sadly the auto GT's are dogs. They are just a v8 cruiser car, very very streetable and old people friendly.fbody autos are totally different animals.
    ha! that's funny. auto vs auto it's the reverse of that now.

    stock--- horrible. just because of the awfully lame tune. guys have seen anywhere from a .5 sec to a full second drop from a tune alone on an l99 camaro.

    that's because when the cops and ambulances showed up everyone there would lose their rides and go to jail for street racing. I heard places like Cali crush your cars if caught street racing.
