Although the actual bore spacing between cylinders on the same bank remained unchanged at 4.

Also note that Series III engines are the base for any produced for the year and up. As with the L67, premium fuel 91 octane or higher is required, but the PCM can compensate for lower octane fuel at the cost of acceleration. To date, over 25 million have been produced. The off-center design continued up until the LN3 version of the engine, when the left-hand bank of cylinders was moved forward relative to the right-hand bank.

The energy crisis a decade later prompted the company to buy the design back from American Motors AMCwho buuic by that point bought Kaiser-Jeepand the descendants of the early continue to be the most-common GM V6 as it developed into a very durable and reliable design.

To meet emissions standards, an EGR tube was placed in the intake manifold to reduce combustion temperatures. A turbocharged version was introduced as the pace car at buoc Indianapolisand a production turbo arrived in The difference is that Series III engines received the new superchargers Generation 5 – Eaton M90 – if equippedintake manifolds, fuel systems, and electronics.

Dubbed the Fireball V6, it became the standard engine in the Buick Special. In initial form, it had a bore and stroke of 3. All of the additional horsepower for Gen3 supercharged engines was gained by using epoxy not teflon as commonly believed coated supercharger rotors to improve efficiency, a larger supercharger inlet and throttle body, Thus the utilized a 2. It shared the same bore size as its larger sibling, but featured a smaller stroke of 2. The muscle car era had taken hold, and GM no longer felt the need to produce a V6, considered in North America an unusual engine bjic at the time.

The easiest way to spot the difference between the Gen2 and Gen3 is the smaller pulley and the ribs on the side of the Gen2 extend all the way down the sides, while the Gen3 ribs stay on only the top, they perform sightly differently and interchanging one without tuning may result in strange behavior of the engine.

The deck height is shorter than the Series I, reducing weight and total engine package size. The fire could spread to the nearby plastic spark plug wire retainers on the valve cover and then to the rest of the engine compartment.

The was on the Ward’s 10 Best Engines of the 20th century list, made Ward’s yearly 10 Best list multiple times, and is one of the most-produced engines in history. This engine has the cylinders numbered on the left-hand bank front bank for FWD applications and on the right-hand bank, the number 1 cylinder being the furthest 3380 the flywheel end.

As with the L67, premium fuel 91 octane or higher is required, but guic PCM can compensate for lower octane fuel at the cost of acceleration. However, AMC’s cost per unit was deemed as too high. buicc

This engine was used in the following cars:. The bore was enlarged to 3. InGM began to market the as the 3.

Unlike thehowever, it used a batch-fire injection system rather than sequential injection, as evidenced by the lack of a cam position sensor. The L36 made its debut in GM fitted the affected vehicles with redesigned spark plug wire retainers. Power produced by this engine was:. Final drive ratios are reduced in most applications, for better fuel economy and for improved use of the engine’s torque in the low RPM range.

The bore was increased to 3. The Series III engines include many changes. This engine was used in the following vehicles:.

It is also by far the most popular of the family for its power, smoothness, fuel efficiency, and reliability, although the stroke for the 3. That said, the engine architecture was vastly changed. Init received sequential fuel injection SFI and it was initially produced in two forms, the LG2 with flat lifters tappetsand the LG3 with a roller camshaft and lifters.

The lower intake gaskets and upper intake manifolds were revised, correcting all these issues. The L27 has a two piece, upper plenum intake and lower intake, the LN3 is all one piece. Starting inthe engine was used in the front-wheel drive Buick Rivierathough still with a longitudinal mounting. The latter was offered in various models through
