You might read here for mechanical fit, the nuts & bolts of the swapout.

For carbed, you will need ign voltage for the carbed ign.
First and foremost, check trans bellhousing bolt patterns on both trans to be used and engine going in.

Buy a used 3.8 off craigs list....you will never swap to v-8 with no cash. The 3.8's are a dime dozen and don't look for Z/28 with a 3.8....they did not make them.

Re: 3.8l stock z28 to 350 carbed?

Incorrect. The newest camaro's were rumored to have a base model in that configuration, but that is all it was, a rumor. Z28 has always referred to a performance package in one way or another, and there is no way that a 3.8 would fall into that category, unless the previously rumored 3.8 Twin Turbo was built which it wasnt. I would like to read the article you heard that from.

From '93 - '97 the base Camaro came with a 207ci V6 (L32). In '95 they added a 231ci V6 (L36) to the lineup and in '96 they dropped the L32 from the lineup. Then there was a Z28 during those years with a 350ci V8 (LT1). If you got a V6 is was not a Z28! In '98 - '02 the pattern stayed the same V6 (L36) base Camaro. V8 (LS1) Z28.

1. all z28s were V8 cars.

2. you will have to cut the cowl up to get a carb in. and trying to get this done will end up costing you more money than a used engine or even perhaps a rebuilt one.

Your on Team Camaro....no need to look it up. Your v-6 Camaro is not a Z/28.

Look at the RPO sticker for 'Z28'
No Z28, Camaro is not a Z28
As said, V6, not a Z28 optioned Camaro.

Re: 3.8l stock z28 to 350 carbed?

Dropping an engine from a Gen IV car is not as easy as Gen I. They come out the bottom, not the top.

Carbed 350 won't fit without serious cut in cowl area and you will probably break the winshield in the process. You also don't have room for a standard distributer either - LT1's had this up front, LS does not have one.

Find a used 3.8 as recommended above and put it in from the bottom. Anything else is not worth the effort or cash - these cars aren't worth much at this time.
