It would depend on what kind of 3.8 it is. Aren't sami's usually powered by 1.8's? I'm not saying it can't be done, but that sure is a big difference!

If it's a longblock I can't see it getting in there. Maybe a nice short V6?

how mutch work is involved is the question? witch also depends on what kind of 3.8 it is, 4cyl no it must be a 6.
3.8 is that a buick?
good luck!
why not a 4.3 is you need TONS of power, but a 1.6 is lots of power for 90% of the suki's out there, there is also gears.
