I have been on this site for some time now and have always found it to be a source of excellent information. I have posted from time to time but cannot call myself in all good conscience, a "contributor".
That being said, I need some information!
I am looking for a replacement engine for my 04 Impala, 3400. The number of available engines that are from Impalas do not seem to be in my favor.
This brings me to my question: Can I yank a 3.4 L LA1 V6 from any GM and expect it to be a direct fit?
Wire harnesses and engine mouth points.. etc...
If so, anyone have a list of what models and years?
So far I have found that the Venture, Oldsmobile Silhouette, (I Think) Equinox , I think the Monte Carlo...
Again... I am just wondering if any of these can be considered a "Direct" fit.
This would widen my engine sources immensely if it were.
I know for a fact if you use a 3800 from another platform in the W-body you end up needing to transfer a bunch of brackets and other odds and ends to get it in there. I'd imagine you'd be in the same boat doing a cross platform LA1 swap.
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
