However, since they both have the rack and lower intake problem, I'm reconsidering the swap. I planned on doing both myself anyway and selling the Olds, but would it be more worth it for me to change the engines out? Putting the 96K into the 144K Regal. I know it can be done, they're both 3800 Series II motors, but I don't know how to go about this. Ordering parts, I know there are different steering racks for each vehicle, so the other parts that basically "connect" the engine to the other various parts of the car are different to account for the different distances between the components.
If it is worth it for me to change the engines out, I won't be able to do it for a few months til school's out. Would I have to fix the lower intake and change the racks in both cars then? And I'm thinking it'd probably be worth it for me to swap trannys too, right? I've kept everything on the Olds in tip top shape, changed all fluids, done scheduled maintenance, etc, that's the only reason I'm considering this, but I need another opinion before I get rid of the Olds-registration's expired next month, so I could tinker with it until May if I needed to.
have the same problem?
