I don't suggest it. You will have different sized injectors, MAF, and throttle body. If you have access to a local tuner, I suggest using him. If you don't, you can ship me your PCM and I will give you a base tune so the car is drivable. You will still need to get a scan. I can get you set up for $125. PM me if interested, will need your cars information, year, make, etc.

Edit. Just noticed, is this a 95? If so, I can't tune that. Sorry. 97+

Contact those guys and see what they say. Octane booster is a waste of money. It won't add enough to make any difference.

The pullies and belts will be a piece of cake with the engine in the car. We have so much more room than most of the other cars. I love the Bonneville for that reason.

The one thing that you may not know is the torque axis bracket/spacers are different from SC to NA. Make sure you have the right bracket for the engine side (body side is all the same) or your bracket will hit and bend the pulley.

Yeah..I bent one.
