    Default 3.8L motor

    will a 3.8L 3800 II motor from a f-body fit a FWD GM car?

    My biggest problem was with T-top cars and the t-top seals n wind noise. Here in michigan.......there is a big issue with the floor pans rusting out. I had a v6 99 Firebird and the rear floor pans were rotted away....about the size of base balls. Under coat your ride to make it last longer.

    Was looking for what it says at the end of this,

    **Cracked Upper Dash Panel by the air vent- Very common to Firebirds as well as Camaros. The only real fix to this is to get a new upper dash panel. (I'd like to specify, that you only need to replace the UPPER DASH PANEL when it cracks, it's $13x and some odd change from GM Parts Direct)



    I'd really rather not do Kris's method.. Don't trust my abilities.

    It's about $300 on eBay for our dash pad , good luck finding one in a junkyard that's not broke.

    An even if you buy a new one it can still brake when try to put it I the car, just the way it is.
