1 Answer


You might be able to get it to fit, but you will have to modify all of the engine sensors to work with the OBD2 systems, engine mounts, exhaust, transmission coupling etc. By the time you got it finished and running you would be so badly underpowered it would be a nightmare to drive. It would be cheaper to replace the Vortec engine that is in there now.
