You can do anything with the right amount of money, if the car model had a V8 and an opition it will be easier. Also lookat selling it and buying one with a V8 if you can, normal that is cheaper.

shit you can put the 6.4 v8 almost perfectly in there, just have to cut out a bit of your firewalls to make room for your powersteering pump.. should slide right in there! should hook right up to your current trans too! good luck Thanks for playing

Search more. Several articles are already up on the web. Use google and go.

I just put a 6.6 litre olds motor from a '77 estate wagon, in my 1984 Pontiac Gran Prix T-top, formerly 3.8 litre, and the sister car to the Regal. Lots of power n goes like a bugger!:) Swap was easy, used motor mounts from 6.6, holes were already there on frame crossmember, and used radiator from a 82 Gran Prix 5.7 diesel. Had to build power steering lines. If you want an easy V-8 swap for the Regal, any buick built 350 bolts right in, with only mods to the fan shroud as 350 is longer so shroud needs to be shorter. Done this conversion and it is easy and makes a quick car! Just remember...Fuel injection is no substitution for RAW CUBIC INCHES! Have fun! mike
