If the sc is auto, then yes, if its a 5 speed, be prepared to do some work. Also the na tranny is weaker than the SC's so it may not last as long if you push it hard. As for will it "fit, and work" yes

I'd suggest a 5.0 tranny if go that route.

Id suggest another SC tranny. they're built better than the 5.0's were. And if you put a 3.8 NA tranny into an sc, after a few fun drives it'll be on its way to death. I dont have as much torque as the sc and my tranny is already dying.

If your going to rebuild the tranny on the SC, I wouldn't even bother taking putting the N/A tranny into the SC for the time being. I think it's too much of a hassle. Especially if your 91 is running just fine.
