Is it possible to convert a 4 cylinder engine to a v6

Question type: Car Customization

4 Answers


I did it in my boat, but the bottom end torque just wasn't there so I put in a V8. Now if you are talking about your listed vehicle, the only way to do it right is to get a donor vehicle for the same year, make and model then transfer everything including the electronics.

ok next question then. Would i be able to out a supercharger from a 2007 cobalt on that same engine?


The engineers would say no due to the fact that supercharged engines are set up differently than normally aspirated engines, that's why most people go for turbos in smaller displacement engines so they don't have to modify a bunch of stuff and still get similar results. But I can't tell you for certain if a supercharger will work.


On a stock cobalt normally aspirated engine. Pushed the wrong tab and posted before I was done.
