DISCLAIMER: I am not a hobby mechanic, but I know my way around tools and the engine basics. So, I come here for advice and tips Very Happy.

My 1999 Buick Regal GS with the supercharged 3800 blew a rod. Mechanic wants $1700 for labor, and $3,200 for a GM re-manufactured motor. I am planning on doing the swap myself. My mechanic said I can pull it out the top if I support the tranny on a floor jack, I can handle that.

What engines will be 'direct fit' replacement? I don't need the supercharger if it will save me $$$. I found a few junk yard engines and also a few re-manufactured engines for the same make and model, but they are either high mileage (130k+) or high priced (>$2,500). Will any 3800 1997 or newer fit right in?

Also, what tools/parts I will need when I start pulling the engine? Never tore apart an engine or pulled one on anything newer than the 1986 Ford Rangers I had in high school. Been a few years.

Thanks for taking your time reading this. Thank you for answers in advance.

Pretty much disconnect axles wiring and hoses and it will come out the top. Contact http://www.moradpartscompany.com/ for a drop out. you can get used cheaper than 1700 with the HD trans and supercharged motor. You could also do a series 3 setup in your car and change out the throttle body. You HAVE to use the harness and PCM and BCM that all match the VIN in your car. If you do not the car will not run. The easiest motor and trans to get is from a GTP, Regal GS or any other W-body car.
