    Actually you're rebuilding a 3800 Series II, and I assume it's NA, not supercharged. The 3800 has changed from the 3.8 design with many updates.
  • Looking forward to seeing pictures of your rebuild. I hope to learn something from it as there are fixes that I need to make on the 3800 Series II that I have in my 2002 Bonneville. Good luck!
