My "slipshod engineering" Beretta is the easiest car I've ever had to work on. On top of the fact I'm about to reach 300k miles on the motor.
I'll leave it at that, since this is a Lexus forum, not the Beretta forum.

a friend of mine had a Beretta. it was a v6 with that crappy muncie 5 speed transmission! it was fun to drive tho. in retrospect. i'd like to see what it would be like to stick in a newer 3.4 motor built up into it. those 80s chevy V6's were sooo underpowered compared to the japanese engines it was sickening!

130hp V6 compared to a 200hp V6 in a toyota or nissan at the time.

Yeah doing intake manifold gaskets on 3.1 is real easy , please leave it at that because I'm a tech for a living worked on plenty 3.1 ,3.5,3.9 the are some of the worst v6 engines gm designed 3.8 isnt all that but still way better

These are my semi finished lights. Still need to add the halos and finish the wiring.
