Was wondering what engine I had. It has the v0207hv stamp on it but im not sure about the nnn nnn-nnnn. None of the numbers I found match up to 10 numbers long

i have a 98 firebird with the 3800 v6 in it
i got a v8 (described above) that i'd like to drop in it. Possible? It came with a tranny or I have another tranny off of a ls1

You can't simply "drop" a V8 into a 6 cylinder car.
You have an operating system for one engine and one engine only. The suspension is different, the cooling system is different, the exhaust system is different, the brakes are different, etc, etc, etc

Not to mention that it's totally against federal law to do that punishable by up to $25,000 fine.
