Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Pontiac Firebird V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120k miles
I have totaled my 95 trans am, but the engine is still good (in fact it did not even die in the 70mph hydroplane accident). The rear axel has been knocked out and the frame is probably warped. Instead of fixing it I am buying a new shell. If I go with a 95-97 I will have little difficulty (and have even found a few possibilities). Now here is my real question: I have found a 68 firebird that I can acquire at a great price, so how hard will it be to put my engine into the 68? Can I possibly get the 95 fuel injected engine to go into the 68 with all necessary computers and sensors for the car to run proper? If I put on a new intake and make the engine carbureted will it run proper? What kind of installment issues will come up? Will I need custom fabricated engine mounts, transmission mounts, and/or drive shaft? Will the transmission fit or will the bell be too small? Will this project prove to be too large for one with limited mechanic skill?
have the same problem?
