Hey Folks love the board, some back story:

Own a 97 Riviera. Got it around 2001 or so. First car I ever bought so I got really lucky. Started modding it around 2002 and eventually ran a 13.9. I tried running some hard core ported heads and a big cam, and started having problems. Never got to run it. Rebuilding the Riviera with an L32 engine and an XP cam. Hopefully this spring it will be running good.

Also own a 98 Rivi that I use as a daily driver. It is a sort of a beater, but I still love it.

While driving home last week I started thinking about it. By my calculations I have put in about 90,000 miles behind the wheel of a Rivi. pimp


Anyway, love the board. I remember just a few years back, it was just me and camlifter. cheers

I've wanted to swap my L36 N/A with a 3800 Supercharged Series III (260 Horsepower @ 5400 RPM and 280 lb-ft @ 3600 RPM torque). The most powerful supercharged V-6 engine from GM. I am interested in following your progress with this project.
