    I wouldn't think this would be difficult, as it's the same floorplan, but you will also require the ECU and ignition barrel etc. for the immobiliser, so you need to rewire the cars electrics for that to work, and then the need for uprated brakes and suspension to handle the power. Better off buying a VR6 in the first place imo, there not exactly expensive these days /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    agreed, better off buying a nice straight VR to begin with.

    But if you're still up for the swap, try the forum on http://www.vr6oc.com/
