for the most part, it's usually easier and cheaper to just sell the 6er and buy a GT...

unless you come across a GREAT deal on a motor

Yea, like they said. I'm building another 3.8 cause I looked into the swap and its a pain... you'll probalby convert back to chevy somewhere in the midst of the swap. Just sell the six, buy a GT and know you made the right move :)

3-valves are nice... definitely do that over putting a V8 in a 95... unless you put like a 351 in it or something, haha

We soooo need a sticky that reads:

V6 to V8 Engine Swap; Pros and Cons *READ*

This has got to be the most asked question in this section. Atleast once a week, if not more.

Pros:
You have a V8
You have V6 insurance

Cons:
Shitloads of work
You're now just the same as any stock V8 out there
You're still slow






:D
