only a Buick, olds or Pontiac engine will bolt to a Pontiac tranny as Chevy blocks have a different bolt pattern.
Some Pontiacs came from the factory with Chevy engines. If this is the case on your 79 firebird, then the transmission will bolt up to a 350 Chevy. If the car came with a Pontiac engine, then the bolt pattern is different and would not bolt up.
Yes, it will.
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.
If they are both Chevy V8 cars it will bolt up.
No, the tranny has to be out of a olds, Pontiac, or Buick to bolt up to a Pontiac engine.
Unless you have absolutely nothing better to do, this is absurd. The Pontiac engine will not hook up to the Chevy transmission. Then the complete exhaust system will have to be custom made. There is hardly anything that will work....... No The Pontiac is carburated, and wont bolt to the transmission, mounts or wiring
Yes, you will need the Pontiac motor mounts, and the transmission for the Pontiac has a different bolt pattern than the chevy, so a Buick, Olds, Pontiac turbo 350 or 400 will be required if it is an automatic. If a manual transmission is used you will need the Pontiac specific flywheel and bellhousing. Pontiac also has the starter, battery, and fuel pump mounted on the opposite side from Chevy, so you will need to address these issues.Overall it is not that hard of a swap, the parts from a similar year Firebird all fit the Camaro, making it pretty much a bolt in.
What about it? Chevy will interchange regardless of the years. Wiring and plumbing is going to vary but it will bolt to the transmission. Buick, Olds, Pontiac will interchange with each other with the same issues. They will not bolt up to a chevy transmission unless you have a duel pattern transmission that has both bolt patterns on it.
Yes, assuming the TH350 has the Buick-Olds-Pontiac bolt pattern. A Chevy TH350 will also bolt up, but you will need an adapter from B&M or another supplier.
The bolt pattern on Chevy engines is unique. There are TH350 transmissions with both the Chevy bolt pattern and the BOP (Buick, Olds, Pontiac) pattern, but they are becoming somewhat rare.
