Been a minute since I've ran across anyone doing a 3800 build! I'm excited to see how the intercooler pump works!

:cheers:

Awesome build!! I need to get my ass in gear. Hopefully I can make this a battle for the ages! I know, I'm talking big for someone that has only just recently started the car this year.

Yeah. All I did with him was try to tune his car when he had oil completely blocked off to the lifters as they clattered for their life. I told him I could come back, but he insisted that I try to tune it making all of that noise. Other than that, I really didn't do much with Nick.

Don’t you love it?

I did cam for someone, and told him I couldn’t tune it until he fixed his lack of fuel (injectors/pump). Told him to stay out of the gas until he got his fueling fixed. Windowed his block in under 24 hours. At least I got paid...but he stalked me on forums for a few months saying it was my fault. People are stupid

According to FB, it takes thousands and thousands of dollars to make the platform fast. PACK IT UP BOYS

Truth is though, you can build a 600whp turbo car for pretty cheap, probably less than $2k to do it reliable enough to stay together. OBVIOUSLY you can do it cheaper, but you'll end up picking up the tab with tows back to the garage. BUT if you have any fun with it, like 2-3 drag days a year, you will be rebuilding the trans every year. If you want it done right, you're looking at least $2k to have it done. That's probably 30+ days of downtime with shipping the trans to trannyman, rebuild, getting it back and having to remove and replace it, which sucks.

So, to stick with it, knowing damn well that's the life the car will live is pretty fuckin' awesome and why these 3800 threads are so damn popular. So, FUCK the haters, do your thing and go beat the stock m90 only 1/4 mile time.

I don’t know about 2k to make 600whp, you could probably make 450whp for 2k using a bunch of junk Chinese parts, but not if your counting the fuel system cam valvetrain and what not, anything over like 12lbs of boost you will need decent valvesprings anything over 20psi you will want 150’s or it will start to valve float, then your looking at a double roller timing chain, and 600 isn’t going to happen without a good cam

So, to not defend the people saying what they say, it really kinda does cost thousands and thousands of dollars to be quick in a 3800 platform. And by quick, let's say 10's. Cause you can go 12's for pretty cheap as long as you're well aware the stock trans you're doing it on is going to go on break and not coming back one day.

I think you could build something decent for like 5k if you do all the work your self and make a turbo kit from scratch use all eBay parts including the fuel system, then just keep it turned down to like 400whp and never dig race it

Eventually the trans will shit the bed but there probably really cheap now at the junkyard, I talked to a guy once with a gxp that had a built ls motor and a 200 shot that only did 1/2 mile events from a roll and his jasper reman trans was going on a few years
