Default 3.8 series 1 in 93 grand am gt

Ok here is the deal I am trying to find out how to put a series 1 supercharged motor into my 93 grand am gt 3.3 with a 3 speed auto. I have a an extra getrag 284 at my house that I could use or a 4t60-e out of my brothers 94 lumina z34 if he does a 5 speed swap. since a 3.3 is a destroked 3.8 how would I go about the swap, what parts would I need and do you guys thaink tat it would be worth it. o yeah I also have andother 3.4tdc just rebuilt also but I figured that the 3.8 would feel more at home in my engine bay. please help I am open for questions and comments.

We'll help you as much as we can.....I think you'd be better off with the 4T60, personally, although the gertrag would be fun. I just don't think the clutch would last long, especially if you start moddding.

It can be made to fit, but it may be tight. It'* been done with cavaliers before. Have you seen www.L67swap.com ?
