Question type: Car Customization

I have a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix gt with a
3800 series 2 v6 and I was wondering if it's

No, your Grand Prix is FWD. You would have to convert the car to RWD to put a V8 in it.

2000 2001 lmpala it has a 5.3 front wheel drive you would have to use the the wire harness and whole sub frame for it to work.
