1996 Z26 engine Swap

I have searched all over this board and not getting a clear answer fast enough, and I am a little impatient.

Need to do a 3400 swap to my 96 Z26. What 3400 engines will work, work the best, and or the easiest?

I know that the 99 Grand Am would be easy, how about the 2002 Oldsmobile Alero 3400? Any other suggestions?

Who wants to bring one to my house? :)

How about a 2001 Impala 3400?

Pretty much any 3400 will work fine. Shoot for a '99 if possible, better factory timing chains.

Yes I do. That one is already 3400 swapped. For the 96 Z26 I'm looking to go simple, easy, low cost. I found a 2004 impala 3400 engine near me for $500 that has 64,000 miles on it.
