    Default 89 Grand Prix just purchased for 395$. I have a few questions

    This is my second Pontiac. My first being a 93 Bonneville ssei I had in my younger days.

    I'm still a sucker for these cars and saw one at a lot by my house for 395$ couldn't pass it up 89 Grand Prix
    It's actually not in bad shape 2.8
    and has ice cold air. I intend on repainting it and restoring it to it's original 80s glory


    How difficult is it to swap the 2.8 out for a super charged 3800?
    . Any information on this is appreciated I would like to order the motor next month

    Has anyone on this forum ever put an L67 in an 89. ? It would be my first time doing more than an oil change
    . I can usually you tube something or look it up and I have access to almost every tool including engine hoist and stand. Is it a difficult swap compared to other 3800 jobs? Do I want a series 2 or 3.
    I need details.....and if anyone has done this can they post a pic of their ride?

    It's been done a plethora of times.

    Triple Edge Performance did one as well.

    If you did some reading and research instead of just coming here looking for it on a silver platter then you might actually get somewhere.

    Blueguy, you're a dick you know that? Always bashing people. The dude had a few general questions, asking if anyone on this group has done the swap. What's your deal?

    I don't feed into it... I really couldn't find anything specific to a swap in an 89 I know it can be done .

    It's the internet. I don't sugar coat things for people. If you don't like it then I don't know what to tell you. Get some thicker skin. He said "Point taken and thank you blueguy". All people have to do is google things. It's not rocket science. Apparently you're upset? Sorry about it, happy.

    Not really upset, but you're not sugar coating anything - you're just being a dick. Skin's probably thicker than yours, but that doesn't matter. So since it's the internet, you can just treat people badly? How's that work out for you in real life?

    Not treating anyone badly.

    Apparently you've got a case of the 2017's where everything hurts feelings?

    I suggest trying some pre-2005 mentality.

    I have a great time outside of here; how about you?

    First OP says thanks.

    Secondly; OP says "lol".

    Now OP says delete him because we're apparently not getting laid?

    hahaha, I love the internet.
