You can start by starting a dialogue with the gentleman at www.78ta.com He has a good help section, has links to companies that sell literature on the subject, white papers on the Pontiac 400, and is open to direct questions.
Anything can be done with enough work. However after 1981, f bodies had chevy engines rather than the Pontiac. The Chevy trans will not bolt to the Pontiac block willingly.
Mounted on the bottom of the engine block under the car.
Pontiac uses same block no small or big, Chevy describes their engines small or big
There is no Big block or small block in Pontiacs. They were the same size. "67 did have the 400 and 400 HO available for the Firebird.
yes. the last year of any Pontiac v8 was the 301 in 81. the standard engine in the 82 and up firebirds was the corporate engine-the Chevy 305
There is no "small block" , "big block" with Pontiac engines. The physical size is the same from 326ci to the 455.
The firing order for the Pontiac 400 engine is that the small block powers the big block.

Yes, as any small block engine will fit.
only if the trans is from an olds, Buick or Pontiac engine. The bell housing bolt pattern from these engines is different from a chev block

On my 99 Grand Prix 3.8 it's located below the rear exaust manifold on the engine block.
The Pontiac G6 block heater is located on the right hand side of the engine. The block heater can be located by following the block heater cord.
I can't find my block heater plug on my pontiac G6 2006,,,Where is it? Maybe it does not have a block heater.
I BELIEVE THAT IS THE SAME AS A 400 BLOCK . SO IT WOULD BE 5 QTS. mY 455 HOLDS 5.2 GIVE OR TAKE FOR FILTER INSTALL. HOPE THAT HELPS
replace the engine with a small block chev

Fully dressed a Pontiac block will weigh in around 600-650 lbs. If you are asking about the bare block....I honestly don't know.
Yes it will, It should already have a small block Chevy in it , if it's a V8.
Engine block but where
The oil pump is located inside the oil pan. When you remove the oil pan the pump will be bolted to the engine block inside the oil pan.
No such engine as a Pontiac 400 Big Block. The back of the Pontiac engine block has a different bell-housing bolt pattern than the Chevrolet. Pontiac and Olds bell-housing bolt pattern match. Chevrolet and Buick match. Unless you have a dual bolt pattern transmission (GM did make them) the Pontiac engine won't bolt up to the the Chevrolet transmission.
it is located just below the driverside exaust manfold, in the engine block between the first and second cylinder, looks just like a temp sensor but has a single wire connector going to it,
Follow the radiator hose to the top of the engine block, right where it meets is a hoseclamp, there should be 2 bolts holding that on, you will have to buy a gasket and a new thermostat, just unbolt the two bolts (make sure the engine is cooled off).
