SOURCE: Olds 88 tranny fit a Cutlass?
As long as the tags on the trans have the same numbers yes, these transmisssions are electroniclly controlled and there are internal differences even though they may bolt up, there are ID tags on all transmissions sold by GM and installed on the production line.

Check the fuel pressure,also change the fuel filter.check the crankshaft sensor,or replace.It sounds more like the tps sensor(throttle position sensor).It is mounted in line with the throttle axle,on the throttle horn.Of course .with out being there and checking I am just guessing.But map sensor or mass air flow sensor could also cause this.Have you checked the air filter?This will cause the problem,if it is stopped up restricting air flow to engine and mass air flow.,map sensor,and vacuums needed to run the car.If I can help,let me know.

If the engine won't start, perform a spark test as described earlier. This will narrow the problem area down considerably. If no spark occurs, check for the presence of normal battery voltage at the battery terminal (BAT) in the distributor cap. The ignition switch must be in the on position for this test. Either a voltmeter or a test light may be used for this test. Connect the test light wire to ground and the probe end at the BAT terminal at the distributor. If the light comes on, you have voltage to the distributor. If the light fails to come on, this indicates an open circuit in the ignition primary wiring leading to the distributor. In this case, you will have to check wiring continuity back to the ignition switch using a test light. If there is battery voltage at the BAT terminal, but no spark at the plugs, then the problem lies within the distributor assembly.
If the trouble has been narrowed down to the units within the distributor, the following tests can help pinpoint the defective component. An ohmmeter with both high and low ranges should be used. These tests are made with the cap assembly removed. and the battery wire disconnected. If a tachometer is connected to the TACH terminal, disconnect it before making these tests.
