Posting on a US forum isn't likely to help much. They are unlikely to know what a Commodore is. Was the 3.8 a GM or Buick motor?

How much money are you budgeting for this project; I'm thinking this will not be an inexpensive conversion.

Why is this a US forum. One of the more active members is from Queensland Australia!

And by the way, I would guess that most car people, even in the US, would know what a Commodore is.

Have you googled lowriders? I've seen a few lowrider utes in NZ running dunnydore engines.
