Cool Found a guy witha 94 caprice L99

Is the 4.3 L99 94 caprice worth it? I have a 96 imp and found this one. Was thinking about picking it up and toying with it? Does the L99 use the opti?

Smile Ok,

Are they worth getting a hold of, it seems to be in good condition, not alot of knowledge on the L99, I won a 96 imp, thinking if I can get it cheap enough I could do some INTERESTING things to another b body.

They're visually the same as the LT1 engine but based on a 305 ~ 200HP, better MPG and still a V8 [although less torque/HP] so................. yeah

The L99 is still a peppy little motor, if you can afford it buy it, have fun with it. keep the IMP for those sunny fun days.

My $.02 any way.

Smile Preciate the .04 cents! :) Well worth the input,

I definately wont let go of my 96 imp, I've owned it since 99 and love it. I was just thinking of picking up a caprice to fool with adn trick out a lil differently.

I have a 96 SS and a 95 L99, the L99 is a good car, use it for my commuter car and is rather good on gas.

I got my '95 L99 last year for $3k and 92k miles on her in mint condition, so if you can keep the Imp and get the Caprice for a good deal I say go for it!
