    I beleive it does have the 3.8 V6. I havent looked at the motor much. Whats the different between shocks and struts? Are they alot more expensive, becuase i know i can get Monroe shocks for 16 a peice at OReillys

    Yea there more expensive but I dont know much about them You will be surprised how quick that 3.8 is though nothing like a V8 but still pretty quick espically for being a 4door buick

    Put a turbo GM in what yet?
    The S10 aint worth the effort
    The GMC already is Turbocharged (internationalharvestor parts /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif )
    The Buick is fast enough for me

    yeah, 6.2, single straight pipe, it sounds badass, rear main leaks like a sive and it uses a bit of oil though, i have another 6.2 i might swap out sometime next year. That motor is out of a 2wd Scottsdale i used to drive, till i blew up the tranny. damned 700R4 /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
