I am starting an engine swap I have been thinking about for years. Supercharged 3.8l V6 from a Monte Carlo SS. One key to this build is dealing with the issue of the automatic. That’s solved with a clutch flywheel and 5 spd transmission from an early 90s V6 Camaro. Another problem is the computer and removing the software associated with the theft deterrent and the auto transmission. That comes via a reflash from Fast Fieros. Then the harness gets cleaned of excess not necessary features via Jim’s performance and the engine is configured.

Status as of 11/18/19
“Stock” engine/transmission/radiator is out. Core support has been modified and larger radiator installed. New engine is initially configured and ready to be picked up from the bed of the truck and placed in the engine bay.
Next steps engine mounts.

Is the bell housing going to have a provision for the starter on the correct side?

Starter notch on the bell housing is on the drivers side for both engine and transmission.
