Looks great Ben!! Glad to see you didn't relegate the car to the scrap heap. She's got some life left in her.

I mean, it's a 3800. *fook* if I've got three of them with over 300k miles on them, two of which are now turbocharged. Unreliable? No. You just got shafted by the fact that a 20 year old junkyard motor needed gaskets, and you were too lazy to realize that a 20 year old motor might need gaskets, to ...

I was gonna say, remove the belts. I spent a year one night bouncing between 3 parts store parking lots replacing pulleys, it ended up being the lower idler for the belt, it was the last one I replaced, and that was after I replaced the entire tensioner because I thought it was bad. I think I still ...

The other option would be to drop the subframe on both cars and switch. Unless the Bonne subframe has rust issues. I think you'd use the whole engine harness on the Supercharged motor, and then just get the security tuned on the Bonne PCM. Both cars use the same PCM, so you'll just have to have one ...

I replaced the rear speakers in the Passat and somehow managed to blow a fuse for the power windows, which for some reason makes the car not start. Also did my first start by popping the clutch while troubleshooting. I love pull-starting. It's how we start old tractors with dead batteries lol. Not ...

There's an access panel that pops out. Should be able to get access to what you need with that out.

The only difference is the bumper. As far as I know all you need is the bumper and the foam insert? Everything else should be the same, but don't quote me on that.

The boost gauge jumping wildly could be a number of things; my guess is it's a bad stepper motor in the cluster, or a vacuum leak. Either way, it's unrelated to the engine knocking. Like said, check the harmonic balancer first. If you look at the face of it, there is a rubber ring. If that rubber is...

2001 Bonnevilles did not have any kind of electronic suspension up front. The only thing they had was ELC, which is the load-leveling in the rear, which uses air shocks and a ride-height sensor to reduce sagging with people, luggage, etc in the car.

Right, I get that. Could you swap this cover on for a bit with the old gasket, or rags over the cams, to keep the crud out while you take your stock cover to be refinished? Unless you're afraid that the cover is warped or damaged somehow.

I know it is easily flammable. The early drag racers used magnesium for their wheels (hence *mag* wheels) and if the brakes got to hot sometimes the wheels would violently combust!

What's wrong with your current cam cover? Warped or cracked? Or does it just need refinishing?

It's not worth it on a daily driver. ZZP's kit is basically all parts you can get at a junkyard, plus maybe some gaskets and stuff. Yes, your fuel mileage would drop, because it's putting a lower ratio (higher number) gear into your car. It makes your 2.93 final drive ratio a 3.29 final drive ratio....

You've never changed your Fuel Pressure Regulator? Those cars were recalled years ago because the FPR would leak raw gas into the vacuum line, then when you went to start it it'd blow the plastic intake manifold up. You can call your GM dealer with your VIN# and they can see if the recall was ever p...

I'd do a pan drop and try and record how many quarts come out. It should be 7-8. Then refill with the proper amount.

Do you seem to be having any transmission problems?

Don't leave us Dick!! Congrats on the pickup, the Vsports seem very nice, I seem to recall sitting in one at a dealer in about 2014. Definitely faster than a Bonneville. Enjoy it!

Like Mike said earlier, pics of the setup would be fantastic, with a wheel off, even maybe with the brakes and hub off, so we know what is bolting to what.
