there aren't any 3800 tech heads here that I know of, but definitely give www.clubgp.com a try.

Is that cierra front drive? I thought the 3.8 was in rear drive platforms, like the V6 camaros and firebirds, and the 3300 and 3800 (these 2 are interchangable) were for front drive platforms, cause my '90 cierra was front drive with a 3300. I've heard that the 3.8 and 3xxx series are very different, not even sharing the same block angle (3.8 is 60, 3xxx is 90).
