There is no hope for that motor. You could turbo it.... but it would be a waste of time in my eyes. Instead, swap a 3400/3500 motor in. Then work at a turbo. Then you'll be cookin.

If it's clean and the paint job still looks nice you can probably get 2500 for it.

You can do almost everthing that a 3400 can with your current engine/car.

Might be a little harder to find parts that are confirmed fits but Ben's right.

You know kid, no one mods the hell out of their car over night. Dont buy a 99+ GrandAm just to get the 3400 motor thats only 20hp more and a heavier vehicle. Your not gaining that much.

Live with the car. Love it. Embrase it. Save up some money and do a 3400 swap. Its pretty much just a bored out 3100 so its not like you will be hacking things up to make it work.

4500's shipped to your door on ebay go for $450 shipped to your door........do a little research, i'm sure you could possibly swap it yourself.....

The only complete waste of time was trying to read that crap you typed. before you try modding a car try writing at a 4th grade level because if you cant do that just hurry up and slam that car into a tree because you probably cant read the instructions for installing a spark plug.

I would learn how to freaking write before you tear into a motor swap or engine work of any kind. Reading your posts gives me a damn headache. But yeah, the L82 is a rather useless motor, more parts made for the LA1. MP Racing, Miltzy's etc, there's plenty of go fast parts for that engine. And tell the Honda fegs we said hi. :hay:

The 3.1 and 3.4 run of the same block correct? -please correct me if I'm wrong
or is the cam different?

Just go to u-pull r parts or somewhere cheap pull heads pressure check and mill them, do a valve job with a p&p, Find ui an li p&p it since its out, and etc etc.. not even going to go through all the details cause I'm sure your not going to do it. Unless you have mechanical experience

But hey it's advice. And tell your honda friends what they mean the 3.1 isn't worth modding when they are trying to mod their d15 and d16 lawnmower engines mostly with type r stickers lol

Mechanical experience!!!!!!!!! hahaha lol dude i have plenty of that ive done at least 20 motor swap and replaced almost eveything in a engine i did my 1st swap when i was 13 my uncle is an ase certified master technican he took me under his wing im just a lil ignorant when it come 2 this 3100 sfi lol he wants me 2 figure it out by reserching on this specific engine

Not only that but even a stock 3100 powered lighter N body isn't that slow when compared to a bunch of compact cars & stock-ish Hondas. FWIW, when I first got my used Achieva SC with the 3100 V6 back in 1999, I raced a then brand new blue Civic Si that my coworker had just bought. It was very sick looking and quick but I hated that he talked -ish about my half-of-the-price Achieva. So we raced one night after work and with the nice torquey V6, we were dead nuts even all the way onto the highway. I think he would have pulled me on the top end but I was grinning for a week.

umm first is it true that these engines have bad intake problem? if so how can i fix it.... also wat are the best parts for this type of engine???.... O yea i have this problem with mine like it idles at 500 rpm then raises up 2 like 1500rpms then just pin pongs back and forth btwn 500 and 1500 and when i let it do that for like 5 minutes it cuts off... what is that?

Total guess here but check the condition of your MAF and your Coils. Same thing I'm dealing with today. My MAF was coated in crap, and looks like my 3/6 coil is bad. I just tossed an old one I had in the garage in it's place and the oscillating idle is gone! I now know, thanks to the boards, that the resistance on our coils should be between 5 and 7K oms resistance. The wires should be 600 oms resistance. Check those out and I bet you nail your issue. I am testing mine in about 10 mins when Chad gets here with his tester

Here you go.....
