Could it be done?
I've been sorta looking for either a 3.4 or a 3800 series 1 to swap into my Lumina.
My dad told me the 3800 is a strong and reliable engine. The only OBD1 3800 engine is from an early Regal right??
Would a 3800 be able to be swapped into my Lumina, and use most of the same wiring and same transmission (4T60)?
I've also been looking at possibily doing the 3.4 swap, but (I'm not trying to satrt a flame war) I'd like a little more reliable engine. I know my 3.1 thats in there now is probably the most reliable egnine I've owned, and I'm thinking the 3800 would be decently reliable as well.
And no, I don't want to do the #800 Series II Super charged engine swap (L67 right??) just because I don't want all the hassle lol..
So, any insightwould be helpful, and I might start shopping around for a nice series 1 3800 with decently low miles on it.
