Hello, I bought my 86 2m4 last year. it is an automatic. I saved it from the scrap yard and it has been a long journey to get it on the road. It's a nice daily driver with 150K but I need some more go. I have just bought an even rougher 84 2m6 4 speed that can't be saved. My plans were to swap the 2m6 drive into my 2m4. 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.
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.
