Would take alot to re-engineer,make new engine/trans brackets not to mention rewiring it all,I don't think it be a good idea :roll:

if you really want to try .... talk to an engineer & get a better idea. most likely as mentioned need to fabricate new mounts. maybe tailshaft? & make a stand alone engine/box loom plus prob a few small[ish] things as well. also do you want to register it with the 3.8?

But I think we all secretly want a Ecotec V6 in our Falcons.
Now that's what I call a performance upgrade :twisted: :evil:
