Getting the Wheeling Fever
* 1991-1994 Chevrolet Lumina Z34 and the Euro 3.4 sedan
* 1991-1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
* 1991-1996 Pontiac Grand Prix
* 1995-1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Z34
* 1995-1997 Chevrolet Lumina LS
* 1997 Chevrolet Lumina LTZ
Here's a few also came in a factory turbo and supercharged

i wouldnt go with the lumina 3400 dohc motor, they are known to be troublesome.

the sohc 3400's out of the later years were strong motors.

i have thought about swapping in the 3.1 out of my car since i wrote it off, but need to figure out if the coolant routing will work in a rwd application, a problem to be overcome by any of the transverse mounted 60 degree v-6s listed above. the next possible obstacle to overcome would be the upper intakes pointing back towards the firewall for the intakes.

I tried to find those 3.4 but unable to find them here in Panama, most of our GM came frm MEX.

I got an 3.1 FI Multiport from an Oldsmobile Cutlas and will install it.

The only problem that has been found is the upper intake but will figure out when will instal it, options (cut firewall or move the transmission and all other components)

Will create bases for the engine due to locations are not similar to the 2.8.

as soon will start the instalation will post pictures.

This is the space between engine and radiator

This is the space between firewall and the air intake
[Linked Image]
Here is the space for the air compresor of the 3.1 hit the steering box, have to check how to re-locate it because the original kia and the 2.8 have it at the other side

here is the engine just put, no engine bases yet...
engine and transmission had to be pulled up feu inches, that is the space that the wood is ocupying right now:
