no, it is not the same.
Do you know what is different? Everything plugged in fine ...Except the car wont start now...3,2 out of 95 ATX going into 95 MTX.
As in you used a 3.2l harness in a 3.0 based car?
The wiring is different in the 3.2 harness, You need to use both the lower and upper parts of the 3.0l harness. On a limb I might say it could be possible to use the 3.2l computer to get it to start BUT you would have massive problems dealing with the (automatic) transmission not being there.
Good job. Just did the same with my '89. Run it hard and don't be afraid of it breaking.
I know this thread is old, I am about to swap a 3.2 from a 93 ATX into a 95 MTX car. What computer do I use?
Do I swap the harness from the old 3.0 and use it on the 3.2?
The information in this thread is very good and it will be very helpful in the coming weeks. Thanks for taking the time to take pics and explain everything.
Yep, transfer all of the MTX stuff (harness, timing assy, etc) onto the 3.2
Ok I know this thread is almost 6 years old but if I could get more links on the 3.2L swap I would be forever grateful.
I've red some things in this thread that I didn't know previously, but I would love to know step by step never done a swap like this one
I assume you are swapping a 3.2 into an already MTX car?
There is some info in this thread
Eacyde yes it's a 91-93 mtx with a blown and missing parts 3.0l
And another question I haven't seen answered so I need the 3.2 ecm?
No. You use the manual car wiring harness and computer
You are basically dressing the 3.2 to look like a 3.0. this involves a few modifications that have been addressed in the above links.
I would strongly recommend getting re-enforced motor mounts.
Awesome thanks for all the help and anymore info on things that need to be addressed that are not covered or have been over looked would be helpful.
I've never done a swap like this and do not want to get ahead of myself and pull it back out.
Eacyde where do I find the reinforced mounts from I looked at shosource and could not find anything
Shoot them an email and ask directly.
this link is dead for me, can you point me to more info on keeping the 3.2 acc and the motor mount mod??
