Re: Engine Interchange
Are you changing for an upgrade or is the old one shot? When changing engines and there's not an exact match from model to model, it's generally best to get as much of the peripherals from the donor car as possible. As far as the motor mount, as long as the blocks are the same, the motor mounts from your car should fit the incoming engine. If there are considerable differences between the 2 models, particularly the years, the ECM has to be considered. As far as whether it's possible to make the swap, anything is possible, it's a matter of whether it exceeds what your capable of.
Is this change for a project or necessity?
Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?
Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
