Question, folks and technicians:
Can the 3800 engine be mounted for RWD use? I currently have a '87
Regal, with an anemic 305 engine, with either a 200R4 or 700R4 (no one
taught me the difference between the two). I would love to pop a 231
from a newer wreck for better milage - and quite likely, better power
I understand that I could just pull stuff from a Firebird, but they're
rare as hens' teeth around here. Since the same engine (?) is
powering the RWD F-bodies as well as the FWD Regals / Grand Prixs /
Cutlasses, they theoretically should be able to use the same engine
Also, should such a swap require an adapter for the transmission, as
the current engine is a Chevrolet?
