I heard that there is one dude that is putting one in a fiero or has already done it. And I think there is a guy in the archives who lived in alaska that did it too. Phaeton I think his name was? But either way it would be pretty cool to have an all aluminum 60 degree in the back with a turbo or nitrous or something.

$6500?? Wow, i've never seen them go for that much. Usually they're around 3k here. Still a lot but not that much.
If i remember correctly, the aluminum block is missing the little guides to guide the trans into place. They're like little feet or something that help center the trans where it's supposed to go. There was a lot of discussion as to whether this was a critical thing to have or not. All this is from memory so i could be off or wrong on this.
Anyone else remember? Shaun was doing the swap but i'm not sure if he ever completed it or not.

$6500 is obviously not US money. Do the conversion and its about $4k or so. I think GM performance parts sells them for like $3300 or something. Maybe less. Been a while since I checked.

The dowels to line the block up with the tranny might not come on the block but are able to be purchased separately. I remember reading it somewhere before. In fact I think they have their own part number.

I paid 3200 USD for the block, this was eight years ago and I got it through a GM dealership.
Yes it would have been cheaper to build a small block chevy engine and put in an Archie kit. BUT, what with the aluminum heads and tubing headers the engine assembly weighs in close to 100 pounds lighter and 50 horsepower stronger.
Lotsa bad roads with nasty corners, don't need 200 plus horsepower, just a quick and nimble fun car.
