    Malibu v6 to v8 swap

    Hi guys. Got a new Malibu wagon project. What is involved swapping the 6 for a small block? I assume the trans crossmember. However I am unsure about motor mounts. Are the frame mounts different like the Nova's were?

    Crossmember is the same, you just need the frame brackets.

    Good work isn't cheap, and cheap work can't be good.

    Crossmember is the same and v-8 stock style or after market motor mounts can be bolted in a set of existing holes forward of the holes for the v-6 already supplied by the factory.

    Oh, you will only be using 3 bolts per mount instead of the four as moving the mount forward extends one corner past the front edge of cross member.
