3800 Series 2 taken partially apart

Just a short video of my engine partially taken apart. I had to change the intake gasket. This was actually my first time tackling a job like this and it was actually really easy. So if you have a 3800 engine and need the lower gasket replaced do it yourself and don't pay the dealer. I was a total noob at it and pulled it off just fine =) While it was apart I went ahead and installed an Intercooler. I figure since its already apart an Intercooler would be easy to put in at this point =)

How to change a thermostat on a GM 3800, the fastest way
This is the way I like to change the thermostats on the 3.8 liter engines. The main difference is how I manage getting the cooling system "drained" to swap it out. It saves quite a bit of time. This applies to any GM 3.8 L / 3800 Series I II III (One, Two, or Three) 1, 2, or 3.

GM 3.8 Intake Manifold replacement. Removal the fast way WITH NOTES
this is the "Flat Rate " way to do a 3.8 liter upper and lower intake manifold set. as you see it is not necessary to take off he serp belt, alternator or tensioner assembly to remove the lower manifold. I recomend having someone help when it is time to reinstall the manifold because it can be tricky to lien up the coolant elbow and not mess up the lower gaskets when reinstalling. Note that it is recomended to disconnect the negative battery cable when doing any major repairs. This video is just to show some guys that said that a lower manifold cant be pulled in way less than 20 minutes, I know that I went over that , but I had some stuborn injectors and Im a little out of practice. If you are going to do this yourself and you are not a professional I recomend that you follow the procedure in a service manual

HELP! Engine Knocking Noise 3800 Series II
Can anyone confirm this noise? Happened after a 2 hour highway trip. Oil and Filter change the day before, and Lower Intake Manifold Gasket replaced about a week prior. It did at one point seize the engine, however a couple of days later it turned over with plugs removed, and fired up fine right after they were placed back in. Still making this same noise, as it did before it locked up. 240,000 KM on the car and engine.
