    engine swap

    Well it's not the EGR, engine is shot, so now time to swap motors, question I found a 1993 3.8l with low miles auto trans, will it fit in my 1998 3.8l manual trans, I want to keep it manual, what all will I have to swap to make it work? or is it plug and play?

    egr tube

    I'm getting crappy idle, feels like it's loading up at city speeds, sound of tappets, and I put a delete kit on which consist of backing plate, and cap for headers. put a rubber on the vac from engine. ran fair two days, then check engine light started blinking...

    Throttle body ?

    I wrote you on the other thread, not much casting on the heads, a little on the exhaust, not much on intake, main problem seemed to be the intake manifold, Heck I'm not even trying to build, it's just since I had to go that far to check out if the engine was still OK, my Bro in law, said why...

    Well to be honest, it's the confidence in my Bro in law, He's that good, and yeah that's the era z's he use to do, he started when they where 240's, and has been doing motors ever since. and the heads looked pretty good, so we just polished, we did however port the intake. seemed like that's...

    Throttle body ?

    Ok so I've polished the ports on the heads {took a little casting off}, and ported the intake, my next question is, Throttle body, has anyone used one from a 5.0 on a 3.8 engine? I'm wondering if it will bolt up?? thank you..

    Yeah I'm going to flush the coolant, I'm replacing the water pump, so it don't go out a week down the road to much stuff in the way, change it while apart, but the oil was my main concern, didn't want to screw up, after all the work I'm doing..took the heads off, cleaned them, and polished...

    Might be a stupid question..

    Thank you, that's what I was thinking, but I know that once you use synthetic your not suppose to run anything else..so thank you..I was thinking it will be expensive chain saw bar oil,,,once I get done if I use synthetic...

    OK so I blew my intake manifold gasket, so I've stripped the engine down to the block,,heads off, going to lap the valves, port and polish the heads, and intake, My question is, I've been running synthetic oil, now I'm going to have to drain the water and oil out of the block, I know to change...
