Yes, it CAN be done. Even the Supercharged 3.8. Gona be a lot of work to do yourself though. I know of a person that had it done by Racetech up in Toronto. No AC, and now PS though, because they wouldnt fit. If you are going to do it yourself, here are a few of the things you will probably need. Flywheel from racetech to mate the 3.8 to the manual trans. Mounts from
Calais 3.3 V6 (90*), wiring will be totally redone, the computer from the donor car. Also have to fabricate your own exhaust and intake stuff...
Anyways it's lot of work. I know there is more to it than what i mentioned. I am not sure what the best car to get the engine from would be. Maybe a Bonneville.

Good Luck
