Default L67 into an aurora

I sat in an aurora at the junkyard (possible option to swap seats to my 01..but wrong color) it was the last generation..it just has an SSEi-like feel.

Now I want one. Much more of a luxury interior than my SSEi.

Almost tempted to find one that needs a motor or trans and adapt an L67 drivetrain to it.....hmm.

I'd assume it would not be too hard to swap?

A guy at my AuroraClub page is working on an L67 install into the Classic Aurora. Seems to be that the pie in the sky hopes are swapping in a 4.6, but why bother, 25 extra bhp (easily achieved with a 4.0), but after that, no aftermarket.

An L67 swap into an Aurora would be a very cool project.

The 2nd gen interior is sweet, but the Classic is even more cozy.

The classic is a LOT sexier.

Aside from finding the parts which would be relatively easy within the 3800 community. Do you have the resources to performer such a swap?

I've thought many times about buying a old Berretta or Celebrity and swapping in a L67. But I work in a machine shop so I can make anything I need on a manual mill/lathe or CNC in a heart beat and our master welder/fabricator in our shop is always willing to help on a cool car project. Not to mention my boss owns an auto repair business and I can use the lifts and mechanics tools as I please.
