According to wikipedia, that year GP came with a 3100 v6, or a 3.4L DOHC V6. So the 3100 should fit, but it's an older engine of course so there might be some minor differences, or you might have to swap over some accessories or other parts from your old engine. Easiest way to insure compatibility of course is to get an engine from the same year and model that you have.

BTW, this has nothing to do with performance. Moving from all go to tech questions.

Alright btw sorry about wrong section , And good to know the enigne will fit but i found a shop here in mn that specializes in swapping motors in Gm cars im gonna throw a 3.4L in it and it should cost me around $850 Compared to the quote on head repair that's an awsome price :D
