dude its a lot of work swaping the v8 in your car.. do a search its alot more trouble than its worth.. you need the v8 harness,cluster, ecu, 8.8 rear end, k-member, and a butt load more.. but if you have the time and money.. go ahead..

He doesn't need to swap the k-member. If he has an SN95, he said he has an AODE which is 94-95 only. Using 5.0 motor mounts from a 94-95 it will bolt right in. It would be much easier to use a 94-95 5.0, because then he wouldn't have to track down accessory brackets.

I have no idea what "a butt load more" you are talking about.

M80, what year is your car? I'd like to see pics of your turbo 3.8 before throwing out the BS flag.

No.. I'm not "Fast."

You will need the ECU from a 94-95 GT. I don't know why you'd want to though. You can push 350rwhp on a stock v6 engine without worry. And with forged internals you can go up to 600rwhp without trouble (as long as the turbo supports it). A 5.0 block will split around 500-550rwhp.

What size turbo do you have? What kind of numbers?
Who did the tune?

Typical 97 vert with 8-point roll bar.
