I have been reading up on the web and the 4.9 swap has caught my eye. My question is what would be the better swap for my 2m4 auto? and is there a step by step someplace for the 4.9 swap into my 2m4. I'm mechanically inclined but the electrical is a bit intimidating. Planning on the grand am brake upgrade and power steering. I've already done a complete LED swap and customized light system but that's still pretty basic + - and relay system. never messed with an computer in a car and the gages.


Go ahead and start a separate thread, as this is a build thread. This way you can have your own thread to discuss plans and ask questions, and probably get more attention.

I tried to do a step by step in my thread "let's replace my 88's 4cylinder with a 4.9!" ... or something like that. You'll find it in search. Buy a pre-made harness. Money well spent. Sorry to hijack.
