Of course! I as well have the LA1 (3400) I don't have the funds for a swap so I'm just lightly modding the one I got. SS Motor as in the 3.8L? I have slight mods into mine and its now faster than the 3.8's. If your going to do a swap, go for the L67 (3.8L supercharged). Grab the PCM and harness too. Any questions or concerns, go to montecarloforum.com. We have a thread there specifically for the 3.4L to 3.8L swap.
