sure if you're willing to spend alot of time & money to change the engine wireing harness & computer & intake & exhaust manifolds. it would probally be cheaper to just buy another car or put the correct motor from a 95.

I was pretty sure the 1995 model ran the 3100 engine. So Yes is should mount up just fine. Your electronics is really kindof a maybe. As for exhaust headers yea you will probably need new exhaust manifolds though I don't know what he means by new intake manifold since that just sits on top of the engine and runs a tube to the intake.

95-99 are the same intake 2001 has different bolt pattern it doen't just sit there.

if you're gonna go all out, get a 5 speed out of a 94 z34. also bolts right up to both engine and frame. a mod i always wanted to do but never got around to.

The problem is going to be that 95 and older are OBD1, where as your engine of choice is OBD2. You would have to either make or buy a conversion harness for it.

Why drive ugly rust boxes.. You have offended me. I have 390hp and 450tq from my supercharged 3800. Those older gtps were panned by critics as one of the ugliest monstrosities to grace our roads according to c&d. Buy a 2002 grand prix Gtp and b happy

The regular 3800 is a joke.. Since you don't seem to know what engine model you have.. L36, guarantee you don't have the skills to pull this off and neither would I even though I've installed cradles full suspension sway bars, ssautochrome headers pulled my engine ft forward changed engine mounts shift kit 12" dual piston brakes from vette... Take it from me your outclassed by your dreams unfortunately.. I'd love to make my car RWD or add a g6 Gtp 6 speed but fabricators have failed in the past and those z34 5 speeds will barely support a lightly modded l67 in a fiero. If you want more info message me, not trying to b rude but it's a big dream man

will a 99 grand prix moter interchange with a 05 grand prix
