3800 series 3 compressor change

sheetsofsound on Sun November 23, 2014 2:14 PM User is offline

Year: 2004
Make: Pontiac
Model: Grand Prix
Engine Size: 3.8L
Refrigerant Type: r-134a

I am not sure where to ask this question, so please direct me if this is not the place.

I am putting a 3800 Series 3 engine from a 2004 Grand Prix into another vehicle. The stock a/c compressor won't fit into the new configuration, but the short R4 will fit. I have two questions:

1) If I use the R4, is there a way of mounting it to a Series 3 engine?

2) Given that I have read some opinions online that indicate the R4 is less than stellar, is there an alternative short compressor that would be a better choice?

Thanks for any suggestions.
