With a lot of imagination and skills anything can be done,but it would take a lot of custom fab work to modify the Mitsu to drop into a pontiac,requiring total wiring and fuel along with change out the ECM between the cars,but anything can be done,if you pocess the skill.

It'd be more work than it'd be worth.
