    3.4 to 5.7 LT1

    So i have a 95 Z28 that i wrecked. Basically everything forward of the back seats is still good minus the frame. the car is not driveable anymore. I know someone in town with a 3.4 V6 for 250$. I am wondering what i would need if i wanted to drop my LT1 and transmission into this V6 camaro. what kind of information should i be enlightened about before i think about thaking this leap?
    As it stands i can use the engine, trans, driveshaft, rear end, and anything else under the hood for this new car. Can anyone offer me some wisdom into what else i would need to make this happen? I would really apprecaite any kind of information, no matter how trivial, on this topic.

    i dont ever know that the wiring harness has to be all the different...besides the stuff purely under the hood, but thats a given. As long as you have the LT1 PCM and everything for it. i think itll be ok....youll also probably need a new K member, i dont think they are the same

    What year is the 3.4? That makes all the differance in the world as far as wires go. You need engine and trans harness but you need to check that the gage harness and anything else that hooks up to the PCM is wired the exact same other wise you can f up your PCM.
    You need the V8 K frame
    V8 trans k member if it's different

    Engine harness and pcm
    you will need a V8 K frame
    Trans mount I don't know about but putting them side by side will tell the story
    All of the accessories will need to be swapped over
    Rack and pinion will be fine.
    A/C lines will be different I think
    Power steering lines might be as well, but the pumps are the same if I remember right.
    Fans for the radiator are a question mark. if the 3.4 uses a 2 fan setup it should be ok
    Fuel pump is a question mark.
    Exhaust is different
    Intake elbow is different, MAF sensor?
    Fuel lines are a question
    Steering knuckle is a question, but most likley the same
    Radiator is different I think
    Most of this stuff can be answered by looking at the parts and using a tape measure and measuring them or looking up the parts on a parts web site like AutoZone or what ever to see if the part #'s are different

    As far as the K-Member, either swap the one from your car or get the BMR K-Member. It's much lighter and give you tons more room to work on it.

    Just an idea...
