Default 94 Buick Regal motor in a 94 Bonneville? Please help...

I have a 94 Bonneville that needs a motor, will a 94 Buick Regal motor work? Does it bolt right in or are their different parts and connections?

Thanks in advance!

I am assuming the Regal engine is a 3800.
Yes, the motor will work, but you will have to change the motor mounts, and possibly the ICM/coil bracket. Possibly the tensioner pulley also.

Hmmm... don't think that will work, I just bought this car and the motor blew, but it'* under warranty, and I'm just trying to help them find a motor, but I don't think they'll want to mess with all of that.
Thanks for your help!

Do you know if a 93 Bonneville motor will bolt right into a 94?

Yes a 93 Tuned Port Injection engine will bolt into place of the 94

Awesome! I thought it did bolt in, but thought it would be wise to make sure first! Thanks again for all your help!
