    Wow they do some really nice work, I'm wondering what they charge as well. The dash is by far the part I'm dreading the most.

    Yes, from what I've seen, they do very nice work. Several years back re-skinning a dash was around the $700. range. It could cost you more today.
    As far as I know, they're the only company that perform this service.

    CaliWagon83 I went ahead and merged a few of your threads together. It may look a little funky, but everything in is in this thread now, in chronological order. I figured it would be easiest to have all your questions, progress, updates in one thread. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Holy merged threads!
    My thoughts :
    I love the GN wagon look. Make it handle.
    The GN 3.8 has been done. Turbo a Series 2 or 3 with a 4L80E, and make something cool..
    Sorry, but I like people scratching their heads going,"what the hell am I looking at?!"

    Mine's really similar except it's that light blue with the woodgrain accents and 14" Rallye wheels. I'm bummed that I don't have pics to share at the moment, but hope to get those up as soon as I can (probably in about a month).

    Kwik_Cutty88, thanks. I don't want to get on the bad side of this forum or its members. Just in the few days I've been on, I've learned a lot, and seen a lot of great DIY work and tips.

    Looking online, seems like there's still quite a bit of support and expertise for the 3.8 turbo, so I think I'm leaning toward sticking with that route. I toyed with the idea of the Caddy LF3 or LF4 or the Ford EcoBoost, but I'm thinking sticking with the 3.8 will probably be the least headaches in terms of fitment, wiring, etc.
