Thanks just get it over with rivwilly107 and get headers like SLP's much better than a PEM/DP setup IMO. I will be making a speedo vid soon so you can get the feel of a true sleeper... a park ave.

Hey AA where did you get that 3.5" idler pulley? That would be easier to use than that tensioner pulley swap. How hard was it to get the headers to fit in you riv?

headers go in very easy on the G body. ironically, they are a PITA in W bodies which they were actually made for.

I got the 3.5" idler at AutoZone. Just ask them to see their plastic pulleys, compare to your stock one. You can take tools with you and swap it in the parking lot.

I wouldn't call headers simple, but with a friend and the right tools, you can do them in one day. Only speaking for SLPs of course.

Funny thing, one second I'm looking at the Christ Fish and the next I'm watching Cartman jacking off a dog and getting dog-giz splashed in his face. I don't know how that happened but the irony is to die for.

2nd try - o.k., now it's a car video but - WTF!! The PAU got our interior too?! Damn it!

Not quite. It's actually a lot closer to the Olds 88 interior from 96-99. It doesn't have the separate instruments or circular vents, and I personally think the woodgrain accent is better integrated.

Mr. Porter designed the PA right after he finished the Riv, and it shows!

Pics of the PAU interior?

I'm glad to hear it isn't identical. I was freaking out when I saw the dash lip flowing into the door. Still one of the most brilliant shapes in car interior design.

I have some older interior pics but kinda close up...

Park ave ultra vid... 1BadBuick6

since then I got rid of the crappy steering wheel cover and am in the process of making fiberglass tweeter pods. (if all goes well)

Does anyone know of an oem strut tower brace that will fit my PA? Like a Cadillac brace of some sort? I know they had the same body and all.

My 95PA has the Gran Touring suspension. It has a STB.

If there was a upgrade for the suspension on your year PA I bet it would have the STB.
