Here is the video as promised of the first startup of my 3800SC swap. I have been working on it on and off since I was 18 years old. Hope everybody enjoys it as much as I did.

Hey Daniel ...Congrats on the " monster" finally running!
How much horsepower you figure it has? I assume it's not been to the dyno just yet. Does it have a 5 speed or 6? On another note, last time I saw you and your dad was down the street by my house looking at that 88 that apparently was NOT for sale even though it had a For Sale sign on it. By the way, the guy finally did sell it about a year later.

Sounds great! Can you tell us more about your exhaust set-up and maybe some pics?

Pokey-No that was not me. I have never spun out or had any accidents on the coast runs I have been on.

Kit-Hopefully we are shooting for around 375whp, the setup is almost identical to a setup bmwguru did and that's what it made. I am using the 5 spd getrag but I have the F40 waiting to go in when something happens to this getrag. Yeah we were hoping to get that 88GT but it seemed like the guy thought it was made of gold. He probably ended up selling it for cheap anyway lol.

Boostdreamer-WCF built everything after the headers. It uses a Spintech muffler with a 3inch inlet and dual 2 1/2 outlets. The headers are ZZP grand prix style headers with 1 3/4 primaries. Heres some pics from my build thread.
