Default Questions about possible engine swap...

I currently have a 1995 Bonneville SLE with 133k + on it. She runs strong as can be, love the car. I have had it undercoated, I am dropping FE2 suspension in, and the cosmetics could not be better. I am thinking about in the near future converting to a 3800 Series II */C (right now I have 3800 Series II) and querying Intense about a transmission. I am wondering what exactly would I need to convert my 1995 SLE to a 3800 Series II */C?

I will be doing my L67 swap sometime at the end of the summer/ beginning of fall. There will be lots of pics and what not. I plan on spending between 1500-2000 just for the swap with nothing extra. So for most it is cheaper to just sell your current car and buy a ssei or just do some na mods or what not. But i love my car and she deserves it

I am in the same boat as you, I love my car and want to keep her, I do not want an SSEI or SSE Supercharged, I want my SLE and I want it supercharged!!!! Besides, I plan on tweaking things before they go in, such as the intense transmission if they do it...

What would I need to do to convert the PCM and wiring to the 3800 Series II */C...I am guessing I need a 96-up PCM because 95 was still series I */C....I also noticed 96'* have the pcm in the hood? Mine is in the Dash? What do I need to know beyond the basic swapping of the motor?
