Hey guys, I did a quick search and saw no info on this topic. I own a 2000 V-6 Manual transmission with 208,000 miles. I know eventually Im going to need to swap motor. I also know there are no real performance upgrades available. The 00-01 V-6 produce 210hp, the 2002-2003 V-6 produce 220hp and the 03 and newer (Gen 2) V-6 vvt motors produce 232hp. Has anyone swapped a Gen- 2 v6 into gen 1? Opinions on difficulty/pros and cons? I am a pretty decent shade tree mechanic and have nearly all tools. My biggest concerns are ecu/tcu issues. then second question is the 2002 swap seems the most probable and the 02 models still had manual transmission so one less hurdle. Would see 10hp gain and asmall torque gain. Thanks for any input.
