    Lots of work and yes it will fit right in. But others here are going to tell you to just buy one with a v8 ect,ect.. I my oppy I'd roll with what you got in parts between the two cars. Fun project.. What happened to the 3800?

    Yeah that will kill a stock 3800 for sure. They make all the stock power they're gonna make between 2000-2500 rpms.. After that torque falls off fast.. Good luck..

    Oh and welcome to LS1.com.. If you need answers today you've come to right place..
