they did put chevy v 6 engine in the year camaro you have . They called it a 3.8 also. It was 229 cubic inch. the buick was 231 cubic inch. The bell housing bolt pattern is different on the buick from the well as the exhaust,radiator ,motor mounts, etc ... I could go on for days.
I would also like to add that NEITHER ONE was any kind of performance motor. They ran the car up and down the road thats about all I can say.
You would be much better off starting with a chevysmall block and if you wanted a vintage look find an original motor mfor it.Good luck
