It's a lot of work -- plus clean gas tank or change it \ motor mounts and adaptations, your better off going to a 2.6L Mitsubishi -- need someone who knows what he;s doing and with IDEAS. good LUCK

You might want to go to a V6 GM motor there's people out there who have done it \ and there on the internet joeybajak38

yeah with the v6 your better of going local (ie a V6 diesel) the 2.5l diesel drops into the 2.6 quite nicely (still quite a bit of work but pretty straight forward)
