i'm pretty excited. life just keeps getting in the way and working overnights, i never have the desire to work on shit during the day when i'm taking care of other stuff.

soon. july 1st is (hopeful) deadline on when the car will be running.

Going to have a guy polish a blower eventually and top it off with the zzp vcs. Did research and the c5 dress up stuff fits. Oil caps, brake reservoir caps, power steering, windshield washer reservoir caps etc.

Gonna look good. I'm excIted.

Nice dude! I would have never guessed that c5 stuff would have fit on these motors. That is pretty cool. That engine bay should shine with a polished blower. I miss everything about my 3800 except the transmission.

That is a company that I wish I knew about earlier than I did. Probably would have saved me a good bit of money and headaches. I still have 2 "built" 4t65e hd's that have some tcc solenoid issues. They keep me thinking about doing another 3800. Chances are I will just drag them to tep for a core cost value if they would still do it. Years ago they said they would buy them at core value.

@Turbocharged400sbc do you have any clean gen3s youd be willing to sell me ? or just a case? i have an early s2 that's good but i can't use it because of the vacuum ports on top of the blower are different from the one that came out of my car which is now ruined cause exploded junk.

yeah I have the one off my old 5tp. its in good shape and not buried on a shelf. but it does have the 97 Vac/boost tower, though it also has the required lines/vac harness which will work with any of em. the LIM port would only connect to the MAP sensor.
