    Welcome aboard!!!!!! Thanks for signing up

    Well, the 4.9l STS (1992) has basically no aftermarket, and the 93-95 has limited aftermarket, and 96+ is about the same, except there really arent any chips available...... Most people that have mods have their equipment custom..... I dont think there is anywhere you can buy a supercharger that wouldnt be custom...

    I am no expert in whats available, others will chime in whats available.....

    there is a twin turbo kit available for northsar motors.... but it is for dune buggy applications and would never fit in our engine bays.

    Thanks for the replys. I currently own 2 1987 Buick Grand Nationals, but I just sold one. I was looking at the the STS because I have always like my Mother's and I wanted a daily driver with a little class.
    I can't afford a newer one but I thought I read somewhere that the 96 was desirable( last year of that body style) and maybe a 98.

    Can't you get exhaust, ported heads( 100hp), etc for these engines to pump them up a little. I am not looking for performance to match the GNs just want to play a little.

    The Turbo Buick guys motto, is "Going fast with class". I wouldn't mind "Going not as fast but with more class"

    I'm pretty sure the '98 started with the newer body style... Not nit-picking - just being informative...

    Yes, '98 is the newer stubby looking body style. It is physically shorter than the pre-'98s. Some evidence of that is the wipers are on the windshield vice tucked under the back of the bonnet.

    My opinion is to get the best '97 you can find (if you don't like the newer body style). Anything older than '97 looks the same but is, well...., is older.

    JMO,

    PS. I have a '97 STS so maybe I'm a bit biased.
