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

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.
