    Thanks man I appreciate it..

    Oh and don't get me started on intake gasket leaks.. I've got a thread on just this subject on my 3800.. I also seem to remember this issue with the plastic intakes on the fwd 3800 ..

    My experience its still 2:1 in favor of the 60* and not on the good side of that ratio
    Solid set of springs and they'll do 7 just fine. Though most cams max out by 6700 so its pointless

    Dex cool and the Vortec gaskets are always pretty as well. Wish they you get away from that shit or reformulate it

    Not if you had them custom cut.. and not on the old TDC's the newer ones had springs designed to float @ 6700 and above..
    Also the gaskets have been revised so that leaking thing is a thing of the far past and engines that are still running stock gaskets. Also the new gaskets for the 3800's have metal inside of them now.. Hmmm wonder where they may have got that idea from?..

    I like your thinking on the springs for the 3800 though I'm not sure what cam or springs to go with yet when that project goes on.. I'm thinking forged crank and a set of "pinks" for that one too..

    Gm went to metal gaskets for everything a couple years ago. They all got them at the same time unless you go after market and still get crappy plastic gaskets from Fel Pro.
    As far as the cam comment I meant 3800 cams. No forged cranks that I know of for 3800s though I haven't been following as closely as I once did.
    I've seen a 3400 leak even with the revised gaskets That was about 3 years ago though so maybe they've come out with a better revision since then

    Thumbs up Material Update

    Some of the materials arrived today. The 4.5"x 3" x20" aircraft aluminum tube, and the 24"x24"x 1/4" alloy for the new engine face/acc plate.

    The tube will be cut/drilled, and machined into a new upper intake manifold. The alloy will get some of the same to relocate and mount, ps pump, alt....


    Still waiting on some other stock to arrive.

    My guess is that he is referring to front wheel horsepower as this is a front wheel drive car. Entirely appropriate under the circumstances.
