Default L67 + Cavalier = Awesome?

Saw a picture of a ~98 cavy online the other day... ugly as sin, body kit, wing, lambo doors, painted interior, purple everywhere you name it.. BUT the surprising part was an L67 chillin under the hood That got me thinking...

I can get a cavalier for VERY cheap around here. My sister sold hers for ~$300, it was a 97 and had a tap in the engine (rod pwnage)... but anyways...

Has anyone on here ever seen what it takes to get one in? I'm assuming custom motor mounts, crossmember etc.. are there mount kits for it? I think this would be one sick project... I wouldn't leave the L67 stock of course custom PCM, smaller pulley and other goodies to get it to atleast 300 or so hp in a cavalier would rock.

what do you guys think? gotta run to work.. be back ~11 or so

3.8'* and a whole lot more have been swapped into a fiero. I saw a web page where a guy was putting a 442 in the back of one he also fabricated his own headers.

check out http://www.fiero.nl/cgi-bin/fiero/Ul...i?action=intro
there is alot of very knowledgeable people on there, and some pretty sweat fieros if you like fieros.

I was figuring I want this engine anyway (either for my LeSabre or something) so why not a smaller, more nimble body? I think it would rock.... jbody.org usually only talks about how to pull out your ***** and make them clear from what ive seen LOL... but i'll try

I prefer the guy who dropped a L67 into a 95 or earlier grand am.

I emailed a kid that has a 3800 swapped 1999 cavalier about it. We'll see what churns up

Honestly I'd be okay with putting this into almost ANY car, as long as its light.

Suggestions?
