Hey guys!
I own an Australian 1998 VT Commodore that uses the same 3.8L Buick engine as you (but N/A) and I was wondering if anyone new the difference in both mine and your engine?

BTW I was planning on sticking in a Turbo.

Well, if it's a 3.8 and not a 4.1, then it will most likely NOT have the turbo crank, and of course will have higher compression non turbo pistons, slightly different cam more suited to normal aspiration, etc.

Its a completly different series of motor. Nothing interchanges or is even close to the same.
