3800 swap on my 2004 Vibe?

Question

VibesAndTransAms

I was thinking about pulling the 3800 Series I from my Grand Prix and swapping it into my 2004 Vibe. Thoughts/comments? Anything I might run into?

I have seen this in Cavaliers so I say why the heck not.

Dimensions should fit as the under hood should have enough space.  You may have to go to pusher fans for a couple extra inches and re-locate the battery to the back.  Fuel system would have to be upgraded to a higher flow fuel pump.  If you are decent with a welder anything is possible.  Either custom made half shafts or adapting the GP front knuckles to the Vibe suspension.

I did read an LS1 going in a VIbe but I have lost the link.

Good luck with it

I think he was on the matrix forums with it and he got a wrecked Camaro for dirt cheap.  So he started the swap. The idea was to make a pro touring vibe.

      Hey, all-
      I've been combing through my '63 Chassis Manual, but I can't come up with much. The best I can do is to get the angle visible from the rear quarter. I've been told that adjusting these are a "lost cause", but is that true? Most of this is new to me(and I don't want to do any irreparable damage), so I'm trying not to overthink things and wondering if there's a simple solution I wouldn't be privy to. 
      As well, the passenger side fender has a dummy mirror that is at the exact same viewing angle rendering them both basically useless(besides aesthetics). Is there a way to change the fixed angle? It'd be fine if it was at least in the ballpark... 
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello, all. 
      I've lurked here for a while now and I finally made a purchase in early November. I'd been looking for a '63 Pontiac full-size for about 5-ish years by that point. I wanted a nicely presentable driver that I could learn by replacing/upgrading things as I went, plus it'd be a great bonding opportunity for my boys and I as well. My grandfather was a mechanic at the local Pontiac-Cadillac dealer, but the Pall Malls got him long before I hand the chance to learn much from him. I'm working on power steering at the moment, coming up north I think has shrunken the torque converter seal, so that's next and a few odds/ends this winter need done. I also bought a reproduction '58 plate with the name of the little baby we lost inbetween the two we have and got a '63 sticker for it. I also plan on some sort of small dashboard container for some of his ashes at some point. Meet "Jonah". Car has PS, PB, A/C and power bench seat with 74k miles. Thanks for reading!

      Hey, My name is Nate and I just wanted to introduce myself and show you guys what I drive. I know Fieros are an acquired taste but I've loved them since I was 16 and owned my last one for over 3 years. I bought it with the engine already swapped but had to rebuild it and I am in the process of putting it back in. Here are some photos of Lydia.

      Send me pictures of your Fiero projects!!!

      I just bought this GT from a private party. I have been driving a 2001 Chevy Malibu for 14 years because I had a '97 Pontiac Grand Prix but it was totalled by a young lady, on the phone, in her daddy's SUV. I'm so glad to be back in one of these. Very different feel and ride than the Malibu !
