its honestly not hard at all. i have two firebirds, one a 94 and the other a 96. swapped the 3.8 out and put a lt1 in. you really only need the engine, the motor mounts, new transmission, radiator, upgraded fuel pump, the wiring harness for the engine. the brakes do not have have to change the braking, or the front and rear suspension. the driveshaft will work, and the v6 rear end will work. and if you do all the work yourself you will save tons of money. just dont get discouraged if it takes awhile, of if you mess up. cause i sure did. i honestly only spent around 2500-3000 building my car, and i love it..
