Hey sam thats a nice project you have there.

Thanks for refering me to bonnivilleclub it'* a thousand times better than that buick forum.

I may be doing a similar swap with my electra in the spring if it serves me well this winter lol. So I'll be reading everything I can about it.

I'm still not familiar with the different engine / chasis codes but I was wondering where the ecu mounts for this swap. I'm thinking that the cars that mount them in the engine bay would make the swap much simpler as the motor trans and wiring harness/ecu could be pulled from the donor in more or less one piece and dropped in the project car in a similar fashion.

I figure that besides the fuel pump and ignition the whole thing could run independent of the rest of the chassis harness.

yeah, this forum is the best, you'll like it here.

your best bet would be a wrecked donor if you wanted to do a swap. other wise, it is just way too costly (imop).

and welcome to BC!

the harness that goes to the sensor on the ps pump had to be lengthened, and that was it for the harness modification.

i was outside until 2 am last night and i was rushing to get as much done as i could, so sorry, no pics. but radiator, air box, power steering, trans cooler lines, and a couple other odds and ends are finished.

now, just sway bar links, fluids, and wheels!

Looking great.. nice to see it in place.

BTW for others or future... the hood doesn't have to come off. Our hoods will lift up nearly straight or past if the prop struts are removed.
