phillygp676, welcome to our board! I hope your experience and 3800 engine knowledge will benefit some of our members who are modding and building up high-performance Rivieras!

Cheers to the new year, and to the new 3800 guru!

As far as drivetrain, most of the same mods apply. Motor and Trans mounts are different than Wbodys, not ideal for racing, but they should hold up. FWI will be different, no kits made for this car. I'd be all over 12s if I had the money... wink

Derek (and the rest of you): just pointing out that motor and transmission mounts can be rebuilt or filled with urethane of durometer appropriate for stability in racing. Also the Bonneville hockey-puck mount could be fitted to get rid or the torque slam on takeoff. Write ups for both those mods are on this editboard.
