Engine swapping 3.5l automatic to a 2.4l manual pontiac g6

Hey guys! I had a question concerning my 3.5l v6 pontiac, so since I cant turbo charge a 3.5l engine. I was wondering if it was possible to swap my 3.5l v6 to a 2.4l 4cyl. Would it fit in the engine bay? If so what kind of tranny could I use for that 2.4l to make it an manual. I wanted to install a 6 speed tranny if possible.

Why couldn't you turbo the 3.5? From what I've read the internals on that engine are pretty stout. Not sure if any kits are available, but I know people have turbo'd that engine with decent results.

If you swap to a 2.4 you'll want something like 2006 and older. AFAIK in 2007 GM changed the internal design of the engine making it really not suitable for boost.
If you're dead set on a 4cyl turbo swap you should look into the 2.0 turbo from a cobalt, they often already had a manual trans attached. Maybe a donor car?
