its possible, however you will need at the bare minimum:

Engine
Transaxle
Wiring Harness
PCM



Plus the other stuff that is beefed up on the L32 cars.

If you start with an SSEi, you might get away with the original tranny.

yes the wiring is different


ontop of what was already mentioned you need to deal with the TB


Here is a suggestion though....

If you start with an SSEi, a GEN V SC on the L67 will give you a power increase, that will get you close to the L32

Yes, Fast Fiero is a SN on the forum. He name is Loyde and his website is fastfieros.com ... I know him because Ryan'* uncle has sold him a few items for LS1 swaps in w-bodys. I know that Loyde has dealt with the fly by wire and the tap shift in a fiero swap personally.

Even if Fast Fiero wasn't on their I think that the people on L67swap would have a better understanding of what it takes to do a swap like that.

I do know their is really no reason to do a L32 swap over a L67 swap other then the Gen V M90.
