Well, whats going to make it low budget?

I was wondering the same thing. LOL

I have 300 at least into this.

Seriously though, I really am just going to go mild on the motor (gaskets only and maybe a pulley). The wiring harness i ca do my self and the trans 4t65EHD will be redone through bartering. My buddy used to work at Maaco so I bought a new spray gun today for him to use.

MS95744 Supercharger Gasket w/2 Yellow O-rings
MS98014T Aluminum Intake Manifold Gaskets
VS50465R Valve Cover Gaskets

This is what I'm going to buy tomorrow. Is there any thing else I should get for the engine? That is gasket wise?

My coupler seems to be good.

Skip the oil pan gasket.. It wont fix the problem, the oil pan itself is the broken part. Alot of RTV on the old gasket works well enough.

In terms of the trans.. If it isnt broke dont fix it.. and if it is, get a junkyard trans.

Get an oil pump pick up tube gasket and a tube of silicone sealer for the pan gasket. If you reuse the old one, make sure to clean ALL the oil off. Silicone sealer will not stick to oil. But as Darkhorizon said, you can reuse the pan gasket as long as ALL the oil is cleaned off (needs to be rediculously clean of oil). And silicone both sides of the new or used gasket. The pan has ripples in the sealing surface from the factory, and one side of the pan gasket does not have a high protruding seal, it's almost flush with the plastic frame. So you want to use a good sealer.

What's the issue regarding the oil pan?

Ah, I see. Thanks 1fatcat!

Paid $500 for my 3800SC, did my own mounts, and a lot of other fabrication (exhaust, wiring, alt mount). That's keeping it on the cheap side. Aside from the engine, it's all the other little stuff like fuel lines, hoses, CA intake, and belts that adds up.

Thanks guys for all the input. I bought all the gaskets today before I was able to read this. I think I will return the oil pan gasket, but it comes with the pickup tube gasket. I wasn't able to find a part number at Autozone for the oil tube gasket, maybe I can find one at Napa.

I paid $119.00 plus tax. I did make them price match the LIM MS98014T to Rock Auto at 50.79. I paid list for every thing else. I could have gotten them to match everything else.

Oh, and I did get a tube of Permatex black silicone.

EDIT; I did return the oil pan gasket, I still need the oil pickup tube gasket P/N.
