Trans that will handel the power... I dont know yours just might work... also youll probably need to make some engine brackets... hmmm... a wireing harness for your car... pretty simple stuff.

ya... there wouldnt be a problem with that... but you do know the 3800sc has a supercharger right?

That turbo kit is for a fiero... but yes you could get a turbo... but youd have to make sure the whole intake was capable of using all that air...

Why not? It wouldn't be an advertisement, but legitimate help.

First youd get intake for the car its goin into... or make it your self.

There probably isnt a web site... youll have to go to a mechinest and have it made.

with fieros their popular enough that people make v-8 kits, or 3800 kits... but with a nova Im not sure if there is... thats gonna take some research on your end to find out.

Engine brackets... youll have to have made... or make your self... how good of a welder are you?

Trans... well what trans came with the nova... It might be able to bolt right up to the 3800sc... if not... a getrag 5 speed is always a good choice... mines out of a chevy bretta.

youll use the wireing harness that comes with the engine... but youll need a wiring diagram for the nova... to know what wires are what, so that you can hook the novas wires to the correct wires on the harnnes.

Again an engine swap is NOT the easiest thing in the world... but its far from impossible... I suggest doing lots and lots of research... learn how to weld... learn how to read a wireing diagram... or gettting someone who knows what they are doing to do it for you... a shop should only charge you for time... if you have all the parts. An engine swap can be done in 3, 8 hour days... so do the math and find out what your local shop will charge you.

Thats fine... find out what transmission it is... thats the first step.
Then find out if it can handel 260hp... if not either have it rebuilt to handel that power... or buy a chevy trans that will.

if you dont know how to drive a manual... you dont have to swap in a manual trans... I just prefur them...

Just keep in mind... that depending on what trans you get... and where the motor mounts... you may need to have your local axel shop make you customs... its a pain in the ass (i have custom axels too) but it worth it for the extra power... dont be cheap when it comes to this... pay top dollar for every thing... when it comes to machinests... you get what you pay for.
