Engine Swap
Monday, August 16, 2010 11:01 AM
Anyone in the southwest region that knows how to do an engine swap on 3rd gen. Im trying to find someone in the area who has experience and could possibly do one. Im in the El Paso, Tx area but wont mind driving if its nothing crazy far. Just trying to get some info I was gonna pit it on regional forums but i figured this is open to all states in the area. Thanks.

ok sorry my bad guys should have been more specific. I have a 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.4l 5spd w/ gm supercharger kit. basic bolt on mods. air intake. headers. dual exhaust. The car did not begin its life as a 2.4l it was swapped in by its previous owner. I've read about the 3.4l and 3.8l engine swap and dang I'm just tempted on trying it. I had forgotten about the idea when i installed the supercharger but the little bug still there just eating away at an opportunity at this. So Im getting info see if anybody in the area of West Texas and the surrounding areas has and can do a swap. i know the 3.4l would be the easier swap. 3.8l ofcoarse needs more fabrication, but id like to get feedback on both. pricing for a job like this or recommendations? So anyone in the area???

why switch to a v6? you've apparently already got "header's" on your ld9, and dual exhaust. what's the point in a swap?

I dunno i guess im under estimated my 4 banger... but the v6 would be sweet. I bet a turboed one would have some balls.

There was a guy that put a 3.4 in a 2nd gen and added a remote mount turbo and it was hitting 328 hp at the wheels. Look up RMT Z24 on google, should be able to find it there.
