that Elky is incredible! what dash is that? I know its a GN dash, but the digital gauges are what I'd like to know about.

That is a cyberdyne dash. It ois not available anymore but sometimes you can find someone selling one on the turbo buick board.

WOW, thats a beautiful motor. I recently bought a 1983 and was wondering if the 231 that came in it can be made to perform like that. And my wife wants to hear , NO. I have a v8 heading this way but restoring/building a secondary GM engine is a life long project i would like to undertake.

unfortunately I don't think so. I beleive that the el camino's came with a chevy 200 and the motor that is in mine is a buick 231 - 3.8 or 252 - 4.1.
These motors were put in the Buick Grand Nationals and Regal Turbo T's. Turbo charging or forced induction is definately the way to go. My motor is currently putting out 600 HP and with alittle more tuning I can get it to push 800HP. I doubt you can do that with the chevy motor. If someone put a buick 231 in yours then the internals that are different from the natrally aspirated motor are, crank, rods, pistoms, cam, lifters, heads and block. I think the only parts shared are the water pump, valve covers and I'm not sure about the front balancer (but I think it is too). It would be easier for you to get a turbo motor. I hope this helps.

Hey Al, I'm doing the same LC2 transplant in an 81 El. Did you do your own work? I'm about to begin the electrical phase and could sure use some tips. Any advice would be appreciated.
