I am told that it is an Impala. This is the guy who advertised a 2005 and then didn't have it. While talking to him and waiting for replies to the question, I began to have serious doubts as to the reliability of his info. Hahahaha He had two tags on one engine and the wrong one on another. Hahahaha So I beat feet out of there $150 in the red for a truck and 4 Hrs BUT I didn't give up good money for unknown quality. I really did tho want to believe his 3 mo. warranty promise. If no other engine shows up soon I may follow up on your advise. I was nervous about the electricals and computer. My trusted mech was skeptical about the leap in years. I was so mad after a wasted morning that I swore that I am going to find and fix the bearings. Or find a short block.

To answer your question, sorry, no, it'* not a direct swap. The engine is the same, mounts are different, and sensors are different. If you take your old engine and swap over sensors that will correct that problem. Another problem may be the oil filter adapter and the oil pan.

I have the old engine and sensors and harness, The internet search that I did said that the '05 Impala has the 4T65-E and I have the 4T60-E. Some one said that there should not be a problem if they both were bolted to a l67. Now interestingly, the fella selling me this '04 had it all. He apparently dropped the entire engine bay down and out. From the wheel studs to the rack, to the engine and frame beneath. The price differed from the tele conversation also. If I can get the go ahead, I will contact him again. Here is a ?. The build sheet shows a M-13 which according to a RPO page that I found is the 4T60-E, then it shows the desegnation F-31. Can you identify this for me?

Thank-you gents, I spoke with a "stealer" service agent and he said that they can program any problems away. I will, as you said Dan, switch the sensors and see what problems may develope. Can't trust the service agent, first I "confused him" and then he said that all I have to do is pull or tow the vehicle in. As if the Bonny will not drive in under it'* own power?!!!!

It'* a very straightforward swap. The engine itself is the same.

Things to swap/check (also in yoru pm)
TA engine mount in front of water pump
Rear exhaust manifold
SC tensioner bracket
AC bracket
Alternator tensioner bracket
Evap (most likely)
Oil filter adapter (part number Fel Pro 70644 IIRC)

From there, it'* all the same.

The damage to the valve cover was my doing, chained to the wrong bracket obviously. I will go slower from here on in. I do not want to destroy any more perfectly good parts.
