If they can jam in a DOHC 3400 into it, it should fit, and if they can jam a 3800 into a Fiero, then...lol, it should fit.

But I gotta ask? Didnt you get it crushed into a cube?

These dudes sell a pre-fabbed kit to drop a standard or modified 4.9L Cadillac motor into a W body. For $7,000 you can have one too. A 3800 will fit no problem.[/url]

Keep in mind, you'll have fudge room, i'd say double check on something like a Regal (same body, with 3800) if you're really looking at it.

okay, I dunno if I would or not. My dad was kinda confused as to what I wanted to do because, I'm now getting an Alero. If the parts yard will give me atleast 1000 cash, its theres, but if they won't, I will hang onto it.
