I have a 2000 Buick LeSabre with a working 3800 non supercharger. I have a 2003 Bonneville SSEi with a blown #4 cylinder. Will the block of the LeSabre 3800 swap over to the Bonneville? I know EGR and intake must be changed but it seems (or at least I hope) the block would swap over. What about the CAM?

What you're looking at is what's known as a top swap. Lots of good reading on that here:

Short answer is it will work, but it's not plug and play. I definitely recommend reading through the link Carl posted.
