Possibly if you have a truck load of money to spend on customizing absolutely everything but it would cost far more than the car is worth. I would buy a crate engine or maybe a good used engine from a junk yard. Better yet just buy a Camry.

WHY LORD WHY, having said that you can use a Ford escape drive train


How about an Allison V12? If you do a really good job Jay Leno might buy it!

Go to Ford and get a crate engine. That way you will have a factory warranty.
