Default v8 in a 93 ssei?

this may have been discussed before but does the v6 firebird share the same tranny bolt pattern as the v8 t/a?

Heres a LT1 mounted to a 4T60.

Unless your a master fabricator, it will cost a fortune.

An LT 1 ain't much better than a Ser2 L67. Now an LS1 is a different story. I'd go for LS1.

i was just wondering because i found out the v6 in a firebird is basicly the same as the one in a base bonnie. just figured if they had the same pattern someone with way more money and time then me could put a ls1 in a bonnieville.

The LT1 has 35-45 more hp and 45 more lb ft of torque than a S2 L67 and produces peak torque way down low. Not to mention its much cheaper than an LS1. The LS1 isn't too much more powerful from the factory than the LT1 either.

Sorry, I'm LT1 biased

Likewise. I had an LT1 in a 94 Buick Roadmaster. Even with the gearing in that car, it would MOVE.

Now imagine taking the motor out of that tank and putting it in a bonneville? I think it'* a winner.

Don't get me wrong, I think the LT-1 is a good engine. I just think the lighter L67 is a better application for a Fiero. Also, we cannot forget the L67'* torque #'* are way underrated. Don't know if the LT-1 is underrated as well. I ran a 93' Trans Am with nothing but a gutted air box at a track. From 0-60 I had him by 3/4 of a car, held there until 90ish, and then he walked past me. They def have more topend than a L67.
