I’m putting an LS3 crate motor in a 1978, 78-80’s Cutlass require some drilling for the motor mounts and the streering shaft has a different attachment than other G-Bodies. Let us know if you need help?

This is accurate information
Bah....fake news. :)

82-88 Olds G47 is where it's at as far as styling. But I'm a tad biased.

I love the early A-body styling the best, 68-72, but 78-88 is a great platform to put darn near any engine combo in it and have some room. Just some weak-azz transmissions and rear ends for the most part.
