Unfortunately, this engine never made it into a J-body. It was only used for two years, in the 1989 and 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix TGP. Another unfortunate thing is that they only made about 1000 of these cars each year, so they are quite rare and hard to find. If you can get ahold of one, the engine will be pretty much a direct swap into your 2nd gen J-Body.
