You should be able to, however, It'll be a huge job! If the Chevy and the Olds are the same chassis (for example, Corsica and Beretta are roughly the same car) You'll have to research that more. The biggest problems are transmission and computer. The two engines might not use the same transmission, so bolt points/sizes may be different. The two engines will likely use different computers and engine wiring, so you are looking at an entire re-wire job at the very least.

Are there any difereces in 2.8L Chevy engine?

Yes there are differences in the Chevy 2.8L engines. Without intending to do an exhaustive list, here are a few differences: The early engines were designated X and Z. The X engines were about 105 hp, the Z engines were around 130 hp. It varied some through the years. The X and Z engines all had carburetors, cast iron heads and distributor ignition. Engines used in Citations, Chevy Celebrities and Pontiac 6000 were for front wheel drive. Engines used in Camaros, Firebirds were rear wheel drive engines. Yes, there is supposed to be some minor differences in the engine blocks. They may have been used in other models, I'm not sure. In 1985 the Z engine was replaced with the W engine. It was fuel injected but still used cast iron heads and distributor ignition. It also was about 130 horsepower. It was used in 1985 & 1986 Chevy Celebrities and Pontiac 6000s as front wheel drive, and Camaro and Firebird as rear wheel drive. It continued in Camaro and Firebird at least until 1988. 1987 the W engine was redesigned for Chevy Celebrities and Pontiac 6000 with aluminum heads, the fuel injected system was modified some and it changed to distributor less ignition. That engine became the 3.1L engine in Chevy Celebrities and Pontiac 6000 in the 1990 model year. It also may have been used in other cars, not sure about that.
