Remove fan blades... Remove alternator Remove water pump Remove the timing cover. Mark the location of the camshaft in relation to a spot on the engine block so you can line it up correctly. Unbolt the top gear from the camshaft (DO NOT SPIN THE CAM). remove the gear and the chain will come off with it. Put the new chain around the cam gear, slide it onto the crank gear and then slide it back onto the camshaft (it's keyed and notched, so you should be able to line it up with your chalk mark. scrape the block and sand down to the metal where the timing cover meets the block. do the same to the timing cover. apply RTV sealant and get the new timing cover gasket, then put the cover back into place and replace the bolts... Replace the water pump gasket using the same scraping / sanding / rtv method as above and install the water pump. Install alternator and belt, tension the belt properly. You should be good to go... You'll probably need to re-time the engine as the old chain I'm sure had some flex in it.

Well, the transmissions are interchangable, so your good there. But if you put a 3.3l in youll have to change the ECM because they have different settings for the 3.8 and 3.3. So if you change the ECM I think youll be ok. My email is RPplayer73@aol.com

What year is the gtp, if 95 or newer yes, if gtp is in the 80's then no due to pollution restrictions today, and may have to change the computers from each vehicle. Each computer is set to specs for the engine it controls.

There are 460 CID engine swap kits on SUMMITRACING.COM. The 460 is the building "block" for several larger stroker motors. It will take a lot of work. If you have all the necessary parts, it would take the average mechanic at least 6 weeks. Likely more. Unless you're going for a strictly track vehicle, you'd get more bang for your buck with a supercharged 4.6 or 5.0.

The 3.8 engine is similar in all the grand prix 97 to 2003 Follow the top radiator hose to the top of the engine, the place it bolts up to should be your themostat. Remove the hose, take the bolts out (usually two) put the new one in with a new gasket and bolt it back together.

Connect a diagnostic code reader to find out what's going on. That's the only way you'll know for certain. It could be something as simple as a bad air filter or oxygen sensor but the computer diagnostics will tell you what code has been stored.

It shouldn't idle that high the factory idle setting is around 900 RPM's check to make sure nothing is sticking and check vacuum lines. Good luck fixing your problem.
