    Its what I had.... LOL
    The passenger side mount worked fine. The drivers side had to be modified so the motor would "sit down" level. My mechanic drilled a set of holes in the motor mount next to the factory holes, making the holes oblong. I was expecting to have to get an electric pump, but the mechanical ine cleared the frame fine.

    I hope fuel pump doesn't die any time soon lol. But it easy enough to replace them so I will deal with it if it happens.

    Re: New to caddys n forums

    awesome!!!! This is exactly what I want to do with my 83 2 door. Here in Southern CA layitlow.com members use a 90-92 Brougham
    chassis/drivetrain on there 80's 2 door brougham(80's 2 door body used here). I always wanted to use a 94-96 LT1 drivetrain. after reading all the post i can here in the forum, i would like to use a LT1 chassis/drivetrain on my Caddy(swap bodies only). Why? I have a 96 impala ss and love the performance. This performance is what our 2 door
    caddies need. Is it easier to do this swap on a 94-96 fleetwood or can I use a caprice or even a roadmaster(these are more affortable). Please help
