Glad to see I am not the only one that moves at a turtles pace when doing a 3800SC install. But of course swapping is only a part time job in between my full time job but I guess my price for labor makes up for the time it takes me. Plus the end product is always well worth the wait......

So are you going SC/ICed or Turbo?

Not sure if I would want to spend that kind of money on an untested swapped car.

What problems with the F23 and clutch? Did he need to use a spacer for the HTOB?

Because of my stock style pressure plate, I needed a spacer for my 3800/F23, which was .25 inches thick. I was using the usual flywheel thickness of .840 inches as well. If the flywheel was thicker the pressure plate would hit the inside of the F23's case. The SPEC pressure plate I wanted to use actually hit the inside of the F23's case pretty bad as is and I decided against using it.

Hehehe, I have 0 issues paying for exactly what I want. Compact, Quality, Workmanship.

I am sure this option will be cheaper than what I already paid in my intake setup.

You gotta pay to play especially when there are not many good alternatives? (Custom W/A IC or a Meth/Water Injection system) .

Interested to see how Dean is going to mount the BOV.

I'm not sure what BMW guru came up with for an IC with the Camaro intake.

Darth used an A/A IC with the Camaro intake but I was thinking of using a A/W IC mounted in the same place instead of the A/A.

Anyway I digress as my build is in progress and I didn't go any of these routes....LOL

Don't really need a BOV, especially with that short of charge pipe.

I am curious to see how this turns out. Apparently Dean had the heads flow-benched and they put out some silly high numbers. This build has been a learning experience. Deans 38T swaps can only get better on the next one and so on and so on.


Yeah, I'm a good copy Katt. I do like the Turbo 3800 F23 manual 88 Fiero GT combo with NO frame cutting...

What HP does your S2 IC support?
