94 Firebird 3.4 V6 To V8

I Have A 1994 Firebird 3.4 V6 5 Spd, I Want To Change It To A V8.
Is This Possible, My Question Is The Bell Housing. Is There A Bell Housing/adapter That Will Bolt To A 94 Firbird V8. If So Where Can I Get It. I Have Looked And Tried Research And No Luck. Anyone Out There That Can Help I Would Greatly Appreicate It.

The V8 will destroy the V6 trans easily. 3.4L is 60*deg bellhousing, 4.3L V6 is 90* same as SBC & BBC.

I agree- the V6 tranny won't hold up long to a V8.

You need the parts from an LT1-equipped F-body to do the swap easiest. IIRC, the bellhousing from the LT series will bolt up to a Gen I, LT1 or Vortec SBC.

I wish you were closer. I'd love to have the parts that you are taking out of your car. I have a '94 Camaro 3.4 SFI engine in my 5 speed 4X4 S10 truck and I'd like to have a spare engine and electronics for it. http://rides.webshots.com/album/576442790NSkIcy
