Has anyone swapped a 4.9 (FWD) engine into a 4.1 (RWD) Fleetwood/Deville? Is it easily doable? May be time for my 1985 Fleetwood's 4.1 to go and I'm thinking of bolt in options. The guys over on the Fiero forum think the 4.9 is great. (I've done an Olds 455 in an '81 diesel, mostly a bolt in.)

Not easy unless you are just a glutten... Too many mods.. Might as well put a Northstar in it... That would be kind of cool, but still too darn slow in that car. Not worth it by any means... A 368/425/500 is your best bet.
