hey everyone, just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself some of you may know me from other forums. I recently revived a riviera that was sitting in a driveway with four flat tires, no tranny mount (made my own) . got it going, changed the fluids and it passed the e-test here in ontario, canada that is.. I've been in the 3800 scene for about 5 years now and blown a couple of engines along the way..... learning thehard way.. i currently own a 2000 ssei with a built zzp block with zzp s2 head, xp cam, and a cartuning 61mm turbo kit, currently parked for the winter, undergoing a few mods... and the riv will be my daily driver, but of course i will be doing some basic bolt on's to that, maybe headers, pulley, intake, dp, plugs, supporting mods. this is where you guys come in! my other car is a 2008 hhr ss that my wife drives, it has the lnf turbo upgrade from gmpp, and a k&n cold air intake, 2.5" cat back from gm. somewheres around 280-290 hp at the flywheel. think that about sums it up, oh and i am a millwright with quite a bit of machining skills, make alot of my own parts, lookin forward to some good discussion, sorry for the lenghty intro....lol

Nice collection, especiallly the SS! When you say Cartuning Turbo, you mean the one that did this to an '04 GP?
