To go from a V6 to a V8 on these cars is a major, major project. I'd imagine that doing the opposite would be just as involved! HTH. -Jim

You have to do the same amount of work to put a 4.3 in that you would need for a v8 swap. You can't even use your old trans. You need a 3.1, 3.4, or 3.8 if you want a drop in upgrade.
