What kind of performance upgrades can I do with my 98 park avenue that has the 3800 series 2 engine without adding a supercharger
The real weak area with a car like yours would be handling. I would look at changing springs, shocks/struts, tires and wheels and maybe adding heavier anti-sway bars. A cold air intake and performance exhaust will pick a few HP but don't expect too much.
Here is a specialty forum for your engine - http://www.3800pro.com/forum/
Any sugestions on the intake and exhaust? what about performance modules
