Wanting to Swap Engines, 02 ZX3... Whats the best V6 to go with?

Im wanting to swap out engines... The 4cyl isnt enough anymore... What would be the best V6 to stick in the 2.0L place... I want to keep it FWD also... Just want a better engine in front that can handle some power :) Anyone know a good size engine to give a shot? Thanks

I know of very few people what have done this, I am sure 2 of them are on this site. As far as what motor they used I am pretty sure it was the svt contour motor. The guy that runs focus-salvage.com is one the guys that did one of these swaps, you might wanna start there and see if he has anything for sale to do this.

Contour SVT, its a 2.5 DOHC Duratec...nice engine. If I ever were to get an engine swap, I'd go with this place - rebuilt engines with 3 year unlimited mile warranty....www.atk-engines.com


Just so you know, its gonna be at least $3,000 just for installation

Yeah, he'd definitely be the one you'd want to contact. His swap looked really nice and it sounded great as well.
