Both a pain. I'd go with the v6 if you have all the stuff to go with it.

The malibu is 2.2 ecot engine with automatic transmission, i Will replace the ecu as well and the axles to,do i have to take the car to dealer to flash the ecu. Thank you so much for your help.

If you don't have everything that came with the v6 then it will be a whole lot more difficult and you may as well stick with the 4 cyl. If you have everything then the v6 ecm may have to be flashed to accommodate the different vehicle. Also I'm not certain what I was reading but the cavy engine should actually drop in with no issues. Just check the VIN on the 2 vehicles to make sure the 8th is the same.
