    Lots of work, and you'll need to swap quite a bit more than just the engine over.

    Even so it has been done many times over, but it would be much easier to locate and swap your engine into a car already set up for an LS1.

    Shouldn't be as bad a swap if you can take everything you'll need from your WS6 and swap it in to the V6 car. If you have to start hunting down parts for the swap, well, that's another story. Still a good bit of work, though.

    Lol.

    Engine, computer, wire harness, front suspension, the throttle will need to be modified since v6= electric and v8 has cabled, I think the k-member also needs to be swapped? Dont quote me on that. Also the guage cluster usually is reccomended to be swapped.

    3800 cars have the same suspension as the LS1 cars even the springs are about the same as the 3800's weight is nearly identical to the LS1.
