Talking Gm V8

I'm thinking about installing a GM (LT6) V8 in my 94 D90 for a bit more power. I know the GM swap has been done before, but I'm having a hard time tracking down any relevant info. Anyone know anything about the issues I am likely to encounter or know if anyone makes an adapter plate/mounts for this purpose?

You need to call the boys at BCB offroad in Cali. They do the Chev v8 swaps for a living. They are the only ones that I know of and for 10g's it is not that bad. Good luck.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Thanks for the lead on BCB Offroad. I'll give them a call next week. Depending on how difficult the swap will be, I may be interested in having them do it rather than trying it myself.
