Turbocharge it and put a 'Grand National' badge on the back.

No, turbo is better. Supercharging is easier and cheaper. Head over to the Forced Induction section of AF, you'll see what I mean.

The turbo thing was a joke. Heard of the Buick Regal Grand National?

Re: performance 3.8L v-6

Haha, anyways, the 3.8L V6 is a stout motor. There are plenty of good turbo and S/C kits for it, and a large aftermarket due to cars like the Grand Prix GTP and Regal GS. If you are on a budget, I'd go with a supercharger, but if you wanna build a maximum performance vehicle, stick w/ turbo.

Re: performance 3.8L v-6

the 3.8 also holds up 'very' well to a hefty shot of go-go juice.

Re: performance 3.8L v-6

people underestimate the power of the 3800...its pretty powerful but still not as powerful as the LS1. For some reason tho I still want to make the 3800 lift up. Thats my new project. And it will be a hard one.
