Question

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.

      I've got a 1970 T-37 Tempest, which i recently learned through PHS is nowhere near original, so ive decided to swap the motor from a 350 2v to a 455, the 455 i purchased came with a TH400 attached, but is from a 1970 bonneville. The T-37 as of now has a TH350, So I guess my question would be what would need to be changed, if anything, to put the bonneville TH400 into the Tempest or would the TH350 handle the stock 455?
       
      Thanks, Sam

      My Sunset Orange Metallic '02 Bird is finally undergoing it's much needed restoration.  FIrst order of business: replacing the OEM Wheels which are corroding with some new rims.
      Kudos to "Mufflers Brakes & More" in West Palm Beach who discovered the corrosion on the inside of the old wheels - and refused to charge me for their fix!

      IT is a great pleasure to be a "newbie" on this site as I am a long-time Pontiac enthusiast!  
      My first ownership began back in 1976 when as a High School Senior, I purchased a '64 LeMans from my neighbors.  Not a GTO by any means (flat 6, standard brakes), it still started me on my Pontiac journey- which included:
      1984 T-1000,  1986 Sunbird,  1988 Firebird (V6),   1996 Grand Prix GT,  2004 GTO (my buddy Mike and I were early adopters of the Monaro/GTO and Pontiac Performance Magazine actually did a photo story on us called "Blood Brothers" as we lived several houses apart), 
      current ride:  2002 Firebird.  Sunset Orange Metallic.   Apparently, it was one of the last couple of hundred produced and I thoroughly enjoy it!  Although I drive a german performance sedan during the work week, I intend to keep my 'Bird for a long long long time!  I never had a car with T-tops before this one and I love opening it up and cruising alongside the beach on FL A-1-A, going to the local "Cars & Coffee" once a month.

      Looking for a blower motor resistor for a 1973 Pontiac LeMans, US-built.  The car HAS air conditioning.  The blower control on the dash has FOUR settings, (lo - - hi).
      The resistor I have in the car now works on the lower three settings, but gives me nothing on 'hi.' 
      I think maybe it needs a very specific part from JUST a 1973 LeMans WITH A/C.
      Thanks in advance,
      Gary
