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
'80s Heavy Hitter - Camaro IROC-Z 5.7 TPI (3rd Gen Jam)
You can't think of the '80s without thinking about the iconic Tuned Port
Injection IROC-Z models produced from 1985-1990. Check out this absolutely
stunning 1989 Camaro
IROC-Z. This was the "big boy" 3rd Gen to finish out the '80s Domestic
Performance era... rated at 240hp (5hp under the last IROC-Z model of 1990)
and ran solid mid 14 second 1/4 mile times off the showroom floor (and
flirted with 13.9 times with simply timing advance, K&N filter and lowered
tire pressure. These 5.7 liter 350 IROC-Z F-bodies were amazing cars in
their day, and gave the lightweight 5.0 Mustang fits during stoplight to
stoplight boulevard battles.
This gorgeous original 40,000 mile late '80s V8 Ponycar is owned by Bill
Descutner of Stafford, Virginia, and this is one of the most beautiful and
tasteful F-bodies I have ever drooled over, lol, well done Bill.

"How To" GM 3800 V6 (3.8L) Starter replacement
BE SURE TO DISCONNECT BATTERY SO YOU DO NOT BECOME BBQ! Also, it is always
a good idea to replace the starter solenoid when you replace a starter. I
have had the old solenoid catch fire on me when replacing a starter in an
old ford truck before!
Please let me know if you have any questions... this should apply to most
if not all Starters for 3.8L's. This car is a 1999 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight.
