Need info for engine swap
I was once told that the sse 3.8 supercharged could not be swaped into another vehicle. I was thinking about doing this swap into my 59 GMC fleet option pickup. Y you ask? Well the 3.8 is close to the original size motor and GMC in those years used Pontiac motors and I like to be different.
I had thought that the 3.8 is a 90 degree motor and would bolt up to any year (proper bolt pattern) GM tranny? I was told by the repair shop (AAMCO) that did the tranny in my 84 s15 that it was not possible. Is this true? You see, Id like to do the swap, but with a 5 speed or an aod tranny. If it can be done, what motor would you guys suggest? Thanks
