Default 4th Engine coming up- L36 to L67 Swap

About last week I went up to the local yard looking for something, don't remember, but I just happened across a 99 Buick with a L67 COMPLETE!


I go back to the yard yesterday, and the damn supercharger is GONE!

No biggie, I'm sure I could find one around here sooner or later.

So, this morning I spent about 2 hours ripping it out, and being pestered by Billboost at the same time. I sent him this picture...



and he was like WHAT? It'* out already??

I think he'* jealous.

Now, you'all are gonna laugh at this, but the only way I could get this home was by trailer. Can't exactly lift this thing into the back of my Blazer. So what does a redneck do? Convert a boat trailer into a flat bed!!

I took the pictures right after I got home...





If you think thats BAD! Wait till ya'll see my redneck engine hoist. But that will come eventually. Right now, I need to get it put on the engine stand(no its not redneck) and start cleaning it up and tear down.

And no, this is not my yearly engine change out. This is going to be a L36 to L67 upgrade. My current engine still runs....for the time being.

Anybody know if a L36 throttlebody will work on a supercharger? Temporarily anyway? I didn't occur to me, but I'm missing the following pieces...
supercharger
throttlebody
and whatever various vacuum lines, fittings needed.

No, I don't believe it will. The outlet is a different shape.

Mike..I'll send a TB with the SC.

For the record, I said "why did it take so long, my norm is 40 minutes". Must be a newb to engine pulling!

You both are obviously ahead of me on number of motors in personal cars. However...either of you want to challenge my transmission record?

You win on the transmissions Bill. And I guess we are both tied on the most difficult fuse change.
