What do you do when your best friend (AL) wants his 1994 2dr Cutlass Supreme to go faster (besides decking/porting the heads and putting ported 3400 upper and lower intake on the 3100) and you have suddenly acquired a 90 Olds Toronado Trofeo (for free)? I'll tell you:
You fire up your plasma cutter remove the engine/tranz/subframe and front strut buckets from the Trofeo then you proceed to remove the harness and ECM/BCM etc. from it also (LOTS of "useless" gismo'* on the Trofeos)
Then you take the Cutlass gut it and tube cage the back half of the car while removing everything (not required) with PLASMA cutter (one of my best investments).
To make it short, weld in the front strut buckets from the Trofeo in the (old) rear strut position and build outriggers from the cage to bolt the front Trofeo subframe into the rear of the cutlass......

most of it is in the first part of the post but we have a whole photo album/scrapbook on the various stages of work/wireing diagrams (plus the custom wiring diagram i had to draw up for the rear efi setup plus the Vats eliminator (radioshack!) )

the whole rear firewall is partially done but needles to say when it'* all done it will look like a HUGE subwoofer box (complete with fake subs)
