this is an 89 cavalier z24 that was my first car, i bought it when i was 15. it had a 2.8 v6 in it but that didnt last long. i started building a motor for it right away. its a 3.1l block bored .030 over, ARI stage 3 cam, 1.6 roller rockers, hyper pisons, balanced rotating assembly, polished rods, arp bolts, 3400 top end with ported heads and intake, and a bunch of odds and ends. it was my first car motor and i built it myself. it was pretty quick for a v6. i sold it to my friend who now has it in his cavalier. it likes to eat fox body mustangs and new gt's :rof.

lol i love all motor vehicles....gives that surprise feeling when you blow by something that normally shouldn't happen...but without the spoilers of a turbo/supercharger

yeah you should see the look on guys faces when they get beat by an old cavalier :rof. i actually built the motor for boost. i had a t3/t4 turbo for it but never got around to putting it on. it would have been around 350whp with the turbo. its running like 240ish n/a

Thats awesome. I have a 2000 GTP 3800 S/C. For what she is shes quick. All I have done is exhaust. The rest is stock. Pretty healthy sounding for a V6. It takes some guys by surprise, who puts exhaust on a Grand Prix?
