Chevy engine question

Hello everyone-

I have a unique situation, was wondering if you folks could help me determine feasibility.
I have access to a late 70's CJ7, with everything but the engine, in decent shape. I also have a 1988 Olds Toronado with a V-6, 3.8 L engine which is also in great shape.

Is it possible within reason to place this engine in the Jeep?

I appreciate any input anyone can provide. I'm not terribly engine savvy, but I have a pal who is a whiz- thought I'd see if he would be willing to help me out. Wanted to ask you all first.

1988 Olds Toronado with a V-6, 3.8 -- Thats not a Chevy engine, it's a Buick engine, and a front wheel drive with fuel injection. I would have to say find somthing else, it just wont work. There are plenty of Chevy V8's out there, a far better choice for a CJ.

-1985 XJ. Trail beater in the making.
