Engine swap

Unread post by Sheyenne » Mon Jan 18, 2021 12:12 am

Is it possible to swap a 3.4 engine from a 2002 grand am with a 3.8 engine? Changed valves etc...but not heads ran like a beaut for a minute then all of a sudden. The car blew out the lower end I believe?? And if it is possible to swap what needs to be done in order to do so?

I am not qualified to answer questions on engine swaps to a different motor. From what I read though, it won't be easy and it won't be cheap. Most people say to buy another car that has the engine or power that you are looking for. That will be cheaper than the engine swap and a lot less headache.

most sites said you need the engine and trans together. the wire harness, the PCM. It might be possible and I just didn't find the correct info.

might be able to give you more information.
