Thanks, and feel free to laugh amongst yourselves, I would if I were you.
well, similar swaps probably won't help you here, closest is a 3800 90°v6. i've heard of/ seen pics of a northstar dropped into an alero which is an n-body like the achieva, along with the 97+cut supreme, malibu, grand am, etc. however, it required a bit of work if i recall. you could always put it in a pontiac fiero, that's a rwd with a fwd drivetrain, and is your best bet.
if you wanted to try something a bit wild, you could try wedging it in a j-body. i've heard of the 3800sc fitting in them.
