Default bonneville interchangeability

can a 92 supercharged 3800 work in an 89 bonneville sse. mechanically and electrically what needs done to make it work? i can get a 92 sc 3800 motor, computer and tranny really cheap. it looks like it can bolt right in. what about the computer set-up.

just a little opinion on the subject as well, if you're going to do a supercharged swap, you might as well go for a S2 L67, more power stock. i mean, you might as well if you're gonna put out that effort.

also, be sure your subframe is up to the power..if you have any rust around your rear subframe mounts, the extra power would most likely break it free.

Not true. Only thing not available for the S1 is a Intercooler.

more to the point of a member named Randman1, he did a 97 l67 swap into a 90 SSE

But yes it can be done. keep us informed if you do.
