Yes it's very possible and has been done many times. Here's a link to a 1st gen http://www.nitrostreet.com/Z24.html That will cost a lot of time, and money. You're better off doing an engine swap. Maybe an LA1 (3.4L v6). That's what I have in my 2nd gen. Put a header alone on that engine and you'll have about 220hp, 255tq. Enough to have an SRT4 worried, but you prolly wont win. You can check out my Z here http://www.v6z24.com/registry/troublesomez24racing/ I recommend signing up at www.v6z24.com, and www.j-body.org. The members of the .org are not very welcoming to newcomers. But their site focuses on 3rd gens, 95+. V6Z24 focouses on 82-94, but we have some 3rd gen members there as well. We actually have a current thread open on a RWD cavalier...Link here... http://www.v6z24.com/jbodyforum/anybody-here-have-a-rwd-v8-cavalier-conversion-besides-me-t108029.html Hope that's enough info to get you started JaY

yeah if you build a full chasis for it.

A lot of time and money will be needed to do it. You can do it but i dont think it is worth the effort

You'd be better off removing the body, and putting it on a RWD chassis, and utilizing the RWD drive-train.
