Soooo I just recently finished an 06-09 engine swap (2.2l) and when I say it's a lot of work, it's a LOT of work. You need every single module, trim, steering wheel, and the entire cars wiring harness including the engine bay and obviously the LAP engine and its sensors.

Make sure every single module is connected when trying to start for the first time because, if not, you might get some no start issues.

Also, swap flex plates (flywheels) from the old engine to new engine. In my situation, I just swapped torque converters.

Now here's the photos 😎🔥

Also, the reason why I have a red gauge cluster is due to the fact that the first car had abs and I didn't feel like dealing with it so I got the modules and everything from a G5 lol.

Also did an LED conversion on my instrument cluster and HVAC module thingy lol. Top is before and bottom is after and oh boy is it bright and red.

Looks great man. Something similar that I’d like to do is the 2.4 swap in a 2.2 sedan. Or better yet a 2.0 LNF. Those of course would be harder to find in a donor sedan though.

I really like the red gauges from the Pontiac. Does the DIC work? I would like to redo the gauges and other interior lighting with the amber that would be found in BMWs. I loved the amber glow in my 7 series. Made it easy on the eyes at night. I wanted to get another cluster so I could install the LEDs. But am wondering if I’d need to program the cluster?
