View Full Version : Caddy 4.9 PFI V8 swap up for grabs

Yes I am still around just have a million different things going on.

I posted this over at rarefwdgmabody as well.

I have something on eBay that may be of interest to somebody here.


And yes I considered doing the swap(tempting)but I may go the 3800 SC or LT1 V8(W/the Fiero V8 kit)
route if I decide to do the bigger powerplant "upgrade".

I am up to my eyeballs with projects already so this is a no-go for me.

Anyone who are members on other GM related forums who may know somebody who could benefit from these parts could you please post a link to my auction & I thank you in advance.

If somebody here buys it I will offer discounted shipping within a reasonable
distance(west coast would be tough).

Don from NY could use the other parts car I am selling hehe.

True, but they're a relatively compact V8 that makes good power for the era it came from and can return decent fuel economy. If it fits in a Fiero, it'll probably fit in one of our cars. As a matter of fact, I know it does. This guy on cardomain (http://www.cardomain.com/ride/382196) did it with a 4.5. He chose a TBI for some reason, but whatever. EDIT: Correction, it's carbureted.

they are real compact and the 90+ 4.5 and 4.9s make some decent power, but the 4.1 is just pitiful

Hmmmm no takers?

I am taking the Craigslist route this week:


I checked the motor over the weekend and it does turn by hand so it is not
locked up and the belt was removed because the AC compressor was siezed up.
Good sign it runs being the previous owner removed the belt so he could drive &
park the car.

Last resort I will take some parts off it(maybe the drivetrain)and off to the
scrap place it goes.

This is my problem too. I even have an '86 Euro 4door that would be a good recipient, just not enough time these days.
