94 tempo 4cyl-v6

Hi, im am quite new to these forums but me and my friends were thinking about swapping the 4cyl from a 1994 tempo gl to the vulcan v6 motor. What would need to be done? Can we keep it at an automatic transmission or would it have to be converted to a 5spd. Thanks

Why? An SHO would get you more bang for your buck.

Yes, a used SHO would be the way to go. It's actually an involved process to do an engine swap, as you'll need the engine, trans, wire harness, computer, and other related hard ware. Not to mention you'd have to get slightly stronger front suspension components due to the added front end weight. For now, I'd keep the 4cyl and once it dies, or comes close, trade it in.

Going with an actual SHO, or something along that line may be the way to go. However, if your interested in finding people with actual experience doing a 2.3 -> 3.0 swap go see Tempo - Topaz Owner Association or TempoTopaz.com :: Tempo Topaz Car Club of North America before giving up on a T/T or moving on to some other vehicle

I feel more like I do now than I did when I got here.
