96/97 SC swap

I have searched the forums but I can't find any info on a 96/97 3.8 N/A to 3.8 SC swap. Shouldn't be to hard seeing that the DIS problem is already resolved for you and as far as engine management just a tune maybe? Any input or direction to a thread would be appreciated.

You'll definitely need a good tune but your current PCM and related sensors will all work fine with it. Just make sure to use the complete motor (not just the blower on top of your longblock).

4.2 SC that would be really cool! Just thought about that.

Yeah that will snap the rods or melt the pistons before it leaves the driveway.

A 4.2 will demand a bigger blower than an M90 to make use of the added displacement though. They're pretty much at their limit at 3.8 liters.

96/97 would probably be the best donor, that's my plan, I'm rewiring my car to convert to obd2 and 96/97 v6 harnesses while I swap over to an SC engine. Tuning I imagine will be significantly easier.
