So, I went to start. And it didnt start first crank. Second time, it shuddered to a “start”. It ran for about 5 seconds, the whole time shuddering. A lot of white smoke came out of the engine bay and exhaust. What did I do wrong?
I’ve been working on my head gasket when I get time for the past week. It has given me many headaches. Have you guys done anything interesting to your F-Bodies?
Not really a fbody related question but I know this community the best so imma ask it here. I’m looking to get a reliable, fuel efficient, and stick shift commuter car. I’ve been looking at corollas, hondas and saturns with the DOHC engine. The highest in willing to spend is $2500 and even that is pushing it I’d say 1-2k is my price range. Anyone got any suggestions?
Anyone who has a 3.8 with an automatic transmission, can you make a video of your car accelerating similar to my last post? I want to see what everyone’s shift points are like so i can compare it to my own car. I know it’s a lot to ask so if you do it I greatly appreciate it. This would help me out greatly.
I was just wondering, how much a 3.4 Firebird would cost in the US?
Obviously the idea of swapping a v8 into your v6 f body is the dream, but if you wish to daily it or not spend 1 year in the making grabbing a super charger for the 3.8 is the way better option in my opinion.
For starters plenty of GM cars came with a roots charger and are known to put down real numbers with a couple of simple mods.
Second your looking at probably 2 weeks to a month of wrench time versus EVERY thing you would need to buy instal and upgrade for a v8 swap.
Also for you people with 3.8s, wouldn’t it be sooo much cooler to gap the v8s with base bird or Maro??
Food for thought kiddos
