ur gonna run into different flywheel and torque converter issues also those motors may be same block but have totally different heads and computers that run them and security issues in the ignition system... so youll have to take ur heads off and throw them on the other 3.8 and run all ur original wiring and intake etc.. it can be done if the bell housings on tranny are same..
