87 turbo block swap, 1979 Regal How to?
Hi all, I have a 1979 Regal base coupe with the original 3.8 that has been cammed and has the edelbrock 1404 and buick performer intake. I blew the head on it a few weeks ago and decided to order the 1987 3.8 long block to replace it. Are there any parts from my 1979 that will NOT fit this 87 long block? Will I need a new harmonic balancer for example? any of the brackets on the front of the engine that wont fit? (AC, alternator, power steering)? If there is anyone else who has done a similar swap that can tell me anything I might run into that would be great. Also will my edelbrock cam I bought for the 79 fit the new 87 I ordered?
