2000 impala build thread

As soon as I was finishing up my buddy got a text saying someone wanted to trade an 04 SS Indy 500 edition for his 96 3.8 5 speed Firebird. My buddy jumped on it and we got a few pictures. Afterwards we went for a drive in my car to get my battery warrantied and my fkn starter went out. Ugh. Dad came and got us with the trailer though so it made it back home with some help haha. Anyway here are the pics!

Pretty sure I blew up the 3800 a couple weeks ago. Been too busy to look into it but if it does need a new engine itíll be getting a refreshed series 3 bottom end. I just invested a bit of money into the NA top end so I would likely leave it alone, I do still have the supercharged top end for later use but would rather dial in the chassis first

Did a couple preliminary tests, zero compression on cylinder 6, blowing oil out the plug hole. Really hoping itís just a valve guide or bent pushrod or broken rocker stud. Something in the upper valvetrain would be nice.

My boss has a borescope he said I can use, so Iíll take a look down in the cylinder before I take anything apart. Fingers crossed!

My last trip to the junkyard I grabbed a gen V blower off a GTP as well. Iíll be running a north star throttle body on it when I do the top swap
