Putting a 3.8 sc v6 motor into a rail. Does anyone have any suggestions on wiring harness, getting rid of the a/c pump & pwr steering pump, running the stock or aftermarket innercooler. Any information would be helpful.

This type of thing has been done before... an sc engine into a rock buggy... Here's the thread about it:


There's not much info in it, and lots of the pictures have been deleted, but there are a couple videos.

I've seen GM six bangers, including GXP, in rails, both mid and rear, but I haven't seen a SC. A bus trans probably won't hold up to the torque and I don't know how to adapt a Mendeola. The wiring would be a complete salvage. The AC compressor does not have to be removed because of the clutch. An custom IC would probably be the best bet for mid/rear engine.

If you plan on racing, the SC would put it in class 1, against 600 horse LS7's and the like.
