  1. I took them off with the bumper support. There are 2 nuts on each side that bolt into the fenders. And then 4 bolts onto the frame for the support I believe. I want to say you need to remove the headlights, both set of turn signals as wel to get the bolts. If I get a chance I’ll take a picture of the service manual for you.
  2. That does look like the fog light switch connector that is in my cutlass that has 89 coupe wiring.

    Why not Quad 4

    They were notorious for head gasket issues. But the 2.3 quad 4 is very similar to the 2.4 twin cam used in the j bodies up until 2002.
  4. 5 philips screws in the bezel around the radio and cluster remove 2 defroster grills remove 2 7mm in defroster remove 1 7mm to the left of the cluster remove 1 7m to the right of the radio open glove box remove glove box insert remove 2 7mm in glove box remove 2 7mm from radio close glove box lid remove and unplug radio tilt steering wheel all the way down lift dash pad out. IF car has HUD, remove 2 bolts from HUD from under dash pad near cluster, remove HUD and unplug wiring and adjuster cable. This is off memory, but I've had the dash out so many times I lost count. If it's really stuck, you've missed some bolts, but it may take a little bit of force to get everything moving, but it'll come out.
  5. I think a regal GS/monte carlo/imapala SS will work as well because it's a w-body, and has the proper mounts. any other car with an L67 (H-body) have different mounts and therefore will work, but you will need to obtain the w-body mounts. Additionally I'm not sure if the PCM from the regal, mote, or impala will work(possibly BCM issues?). The PCM info may be wrong, but I thought it's something I've seen. In my swap I've used a variety of PCM, 00,01,03 GTP's, so I know they work!
  6. Thanks! Added axle info as I forgot that
  7. Here's the info: Any 97-07 engine and trans combo will work. It's slightly easier 98-02. Here's what you need from the GTP donor car Motor transmission PCM Rad motor mounts axles Here is what you need from a 98-99 monte carlo Z34/Lumina LTZ as it originally came with a 3.8 and the wiring harness is very similar to the 90 GP. Engine wiring harness (C100 at firewall will need slight re-wiring to work in the 90 GP and add the BBV wiring(I think)) rad hoses tensioner, and heater hose fitters(they are at a right angle vs straight on the newer ones, but the newer ones can work). heater hoses power steering lines PCM mount/case Exhaust downpipe AC components, everything from firewall forward axles 97 is odd because of the transmission and vacuum hose routing. 03 is odd because of the transmission wiring. If you use a 03 transmission, you MUST use a 03 PCM. 04-07 has a GEN V supercharger, you'll need a throttle body adapter to use either an L67 TB or Northstar TB and LQ4 MAF. Whatever TB you use, you'll need to match the TB Adapter. Additionally if you use a 04-07 transmission, you MUST use the 03 transmission. Axles: If using monte carlo transmission, they should bolt in not issues. if using GTP transmission, take the inner tulips that plug into the transmission, and swap the rest of the 1st gen axle into those tulips. They will pop in with no issues, assuming the original 1st gen trans was a 4spd. If 3 spd, it won't work. If I had to do this again, I would find the 98/99 monte carlo z34/lumina LTZ and steal all of the parts from. I would then top swap the 3.8 and run it in the GP. Good luck with your swap!
  8. Presuming you have a 5 speed Lumina Z34, than you have a Getrag 284, unless it's been swapped. Order axles for 91-93 Lumina Z34 with manual trans and you'll get the right ones. Tip, ensure the stub shaft on the driver's side axle either stays in the trans, or you remove it from the axle BEFORE you hand it in as a core. You'll be searching for a new one and won't find it easily!
  9. This guy has used a hydroboost swap. Otherwise you can use an F-body booster with an adapter made to bolt to the firewall in place of the PMIII.
  10. I don't expect I'll have any time to get to the car before then. I'm working some crazy hours right now until end of October.
  11. I'll have this info by end of October as I have a 96 parts car to take apart specifically for the rear brakes. I presume you'll want this info sooner but it's the earliest I can do it.
  12. Thanks! It's an 88 coupe...not a I sort of wish it was tho! LOL. I'm near Ottawa yes! Are you in Ontario?
