GM 3.1 FWD swap question.

The kid killed his '92 Regal, put a rear strut right up through the package shelf.... Don't ask me how, I didn't ask and I'm not going to........ Anyway, I found a really clean '95 Baretta Z26 with a dead 3.1. His 3.1 is perfect, doesn't leak or burn any oil whatsoever. GM didn't do anything stupid to the 3.1 from '92 to '95 that would keep me from swapping the older long block into the Z26 did they? I know the 3800 Series I and II have some mounting boss differences, I just hope they left the 3.1 alone.

TIA

They didn't, they're just enough different to make accessory bracket swapping a PIA. On to Plan B........

you could swap a 3400 v6 in there; the heads are A LOT better, it'll run alright with the 3100 computer; the o2 sensor will have the brain tell the injectors to add more fuel to compensate for the additional compression.

here's some links...
