We want to put a 1992 Park Ave 3800 motor into a 1999 Pk AV 3800. Is that posssible


the motor may bolt up - the fuel line connections - throttle body wire connections and other wire connections will probably not connect - the main difference is on the top side from heads up on the 2 motors - the design change was for 1996 cars
