    How did you get one like that for $1000?????? Yours makes 600hp? Please post some pics of it, I would love to see another engine like that one installed... The listing states its a 600hp engine but a few other sites has it listed at 450 to 550hp.... Either way- I would love to have it and the trans attached to it!!!

    That engine is one of a kind no way you found it for 1,100 :-\

    possibly the stock version of that motor but that one has extensive engine work too it at least 10k worth of block, crank and piston configuration. Either way breaking land speed records for a front wheel drive car is pretty impressive.

    I would be very sceptical of this auction. It says NA all over the ad but clearly shows a supercharger in the picture.
    NA stands for Naturally Aspirated which means no forced induction.

    NA= "Not Applicable" in this situsation. But Just to clear up any misunderstandings on excatly what was included, I would call and get more info before buying. If someone would buy my 1971 240Z V8 drag car, I would buy this engine/trans for my lambo Diablo replica....

    I'd want to see some documentation on that. I'm a Pontiac "nut" and my good friend Ed is still employed with GM. I remember him sending some info back in 2001 or 02 after that record was set. (at the time, a crew in PA beat our low 10 second Trans/Am with a 3800 which really opened my eyes to the 3800. I have been into Buick GN's (owned 4) so although not surprising to me, Ed felt the need to bombard me everytime a 6cyl put down some serious power. ;D

    Pretty impressive. However, I remember that Cook Motorsports were the ones who modified the car. Mike Cook drove it and he holds the record and his crew modified it. They are also out of CA so who knows how the engine got into the sellers hands..

    Not sure who the other guy's the seller mentioned are but I guess it's possible they worked on the project?? Cook has an awesome shop and I'm not sure they would "outsource" the engine / head work. Who knows though. Some details from the seller may be needed before people shell out that kind of $$$

    It's still showing here unless there were several different builds / cars etc ???

    But Hey, If I could get someone to pay $4k for a 3800 SC with no documentation, I'd love it too.,

    How streetable is this motor?

    I imagine that it idles pretty radically and running additional engine componets like power steering and AC units is difficult.

    Would be great if you was building a car for the strip.
