Engine Swap?

I have the 3.5 base and am curious if anyone has swapped it out for the 3.6 or 3.9

I'm pretty sure you'll need to upgrade the exhaust for a 3.9, but a 3.6, you should be fine swapping

well there all front wheel drive. you would probly have to modify where the mounts go a little and get the trans that goes with the 3.9. thats if you wanted the 3.9. if you had the money for everything it doesnt seem like it would be too hard

You think putting in the V8 from a 2007 Impala SS would work that easily? It's one of the only FWD V8 cars out there.

That would be one of my more adventurous projects for later on, once I burn through my current engine.

to get a 5.3l from a impala or gxp prix you would need basically everything from the steering column up to get it working. i took a shot at the adventure and your looking at $5500 plus easy to make it work.

If I was up to it, I'd be willing to spend that kind of cash. I'd be willing to turn my 6 into a sleeper of sorts.

the 5.3l with bolt ons can make anywhere from 375hp upwards it would be silly quick but the trans would need a upgrade

That's the general idea I was aiming for, and I'm already looking into a transmission that could handle the power increase.

if you got that v8 in there that would honestly be pretty awesome and you would probly have the fastest street 6 out there lol. assuming you put some upgrades on it. especially if you supercharged it or even a turbo if you could fit it in there.
