    ok last nighte I was driving in the rain and was forced to turn off of a street because the water on the road was pushing my car side to side.............I turn on to a street wit less raod water ..................it was dark and raining so hard I could only seen like 6 ft in front of my car...............all of a suttin I'm in a huge puddle off water and my engine shuts off.



    to make a realy long story short watter sucked threw my air intake and distroyed my engine


    now I'm tryna decide if I wanna get a another engine or just say fuck it and get a whole nother car


    its was in my 92 grand prix GT and the engine is a 3.1 M.P.F.I. V6


    If I have to go threw the trouble of swaping engines I wanna go for a 3.8 or a super charged 3.8 out of a G.T.P..............at least that would make all the anger I got tward my self worth it.........and I wouldnt have to take my system out the GT

    LOL.....sorry LOL

    But on a serious note i didnt know the grand prix had a cold air intake that routes up from the ground...i thought they only made short ram intakes within the engine bay.

    Damn hydro lock....

    What will that engine run you?...and installation?

    3-5g's??...

    I have no clue how much that engine costs so im guessing, but...if so...i'd try to get another vehicle.

    Unless you're on a strict budget....

    Actually warrenty wouldnt do any good. The dealer would look at you laugh and say you are shit out of luck since you modified you car and the CAI was the cause of the damage.....

    So you are fucked.

    I have to go to my dads shop monday morning and pull all my spark pluggs and pump the watter out the block then break the top end down to see what all bent, broken, or cracked


    if it cant be repaired I can get a another engine for cheap cause my dads a realy popular mechanic in my town

    I would be doing the swap my self with supervision from my dad


    I'm trying to finde out wich motors will mount up to my automatic tranny


    I wanna do a complete swap for the 4.3 litter v6 engine and tranny out of the rare higher grand prix GT cause if my 3.1 had balls I can only emagine what the 4.3 would have

    jvc cd player included

    and I'm thinking of throwing in my whole system and a set of 15" 5 stars we got laying around.

    and bumbin the price up $3000 a nice ride with crome feet and a newly over hauled engine pluss a system that will beat the shit out of any block. and all ya gotta do is paint it.

    if I throw my system and mount those five stars on it what should the price be?

    blue book on a stock GP fairly good condition is $2500 and my interior is like new
