ok heres the rundown .. I bought a 84 that has a late 80s 3800 out of a Buick century ..
FYI: That isn't a 3300 V6 as another poster mentioned earlier. A 3300 V6 would have "3300" cast into the top of the intake plenum.
What you have pictured there is either a FWD 3.0L Buick V6 or a FWD 3.8L Buick V6 (pre-3800), most likely 1987 model year or older.
So with that being said I have a friend that has/had a 00 gtp the car was totaled in a rear end hit .. He has the motor tranny ecm ect ect ..
So my question to everyone and anyone is how close are these motors . what will I have to change if I decide to buy the stuff and swap in this combo..
Like Mulletproof said earlier, if you want to remove this old 3.0/3.8L engine and replace it with a 2000 GTP's 3800 Series 2 SC and 4T65-E HD combo, you are basically going to be starting from scratch on just about everything. Almost nothing from your existing FWD Buick 3.0/3.8 engine is going to be compatible with a Series 2 or 4T65-E HD.
In short, the engine blocks are different, heads are different, intakes are different, assy belt drive components are different, trans is different, axles will be different, mounts will be different, etc...
