    It depends on your goals, you'll need to convert the car to rear wheel drive and find a complete wiring harness to make a new hemi work under the hood. On top of all that, you'll have to contend with your state's smog laws. If you use a standalone fuel injection like a Haltech or Megasquirt, you'll need to do some dyno tuning to make it really work

    The only front drive platform from GM is the northstar V8 from the Cadillac's and newer Buick's, or the 5.3L Chevy that's in the newer Impala SS cars. I think it's cheaper and easier to find a car that already set up with rear wheel drive and comes with a V8
